Off street parking by your own entrance. A sunlit conservatory all to yourself with sofa each looking over your own private area of the garden.
The comfy sitting room is newly decorated, here you can choose a game or a book or watch TV. There is a Kitchenette to cook something delicious. The spacious bathroom is newly appointed (Sept 2020). Dining table. Walk in closet. Cosy bedroom. Gooseberry bush, apple tree and rhubarb to help yourself to in season and a welcome tray of cereal and drinks.

The space
The quests of this tuck away gems biggest comments so far are how much space there is for two people.

I try to provide what I would want in my travels so, although there is central heating, there is also a heater in each room as our needs are all different!

To add to your comfort there are complimentary slippers on entry and there is complimentary toiletries in the bathroom.

Whilst I don't provide breakfast there is tea and coffee, both filter and instant, and there is a choice of breakfast cereals.

But , perhaps more importantly, there is a little bottle of wine for your arrival. I know when I travel the first thing I want to do is unwind so I hope this complementary gifts helps.

There is a fridge, a microwave, hobs and sink. Fresh tea-towels, washing up sponge and liquid and all the culinary equipment you need to make your own food. So if one of the many lovely restaurant in Ilkley do not entice you you can create your own fine dining.

If you decide to spend time outside there is seating in both the sun and the shade. At the right time of year you can pick apples from the generous tree, gooseberries from the overly generous bush or pull yourself some rhubarb that never seems to stops growing.

I hope you like cats as old Teddy may ask to join you and, I am afraid, for this reason I do not allow pets. She is very territorial.

Guest access
You can drive as far up the drive as you skills allow. If you car is a small one you can turn around at the top but I will leave the driveway free for you to decide the best place to park.
There is a lock box where you will find and return the key. So there is no need for you to be in contact with anyone during your stay. The apartment is entirely yours and very private, as is your part of the garden.
If it is apple picking time of year you are welcome to step over the bunting to fill as many bags as you like or organic eating apples. There is also a gooseberry bush that you can help yourself to, or pull yourself some rhubarb.

Other things to note
Sorry no pets, no matter how well behaved, old, cute or fluffy. I am afraid that guests arriving with pets will be asked to find somewhere else to stay.

Covid is on everyone's mind. So I would like to let you know that I take the cleaning and sanitising seriously. I have enough games and books that I change them with each guest so you can relax knowing that nothing has been touch by ungloved hands for at least 72hours.
All the bed lining, including the mattress cover and the top cover that matched the curtains have been changed. As has the fluffy throw.
Soft furnishing, curtains, cushions have been spray with sanitiser.

Ilkley is an amazing and charming place with so much to do. Don't miss the Toy Museum, the Manor House, Betty's Cafe, the Lido in summer, great shops, numerous pubs and, if it is your cup of tea, no less than 7 charity shops for picking up a bargain or find that book for which you have been looking!
The moors are wonderful walking areas, but across the wide river there are woods to explore and river side walks. It is a very popular area with cyclist and walkers alike.

I think my friends would class me as easy going and friendly. I am a successful writer and sculptress and I am surround with good friends. Having travelled myself I try to give my guests what I desire when I am on the move, a space that is comfortable and your own as long as you are here. Little extras make a difference, coffee always available, extra pillows, you very own sitting room! I hope you enjoy your stay,
