Please note there are only 3 reviews all of which I had to change as the shower and tiling had to be replaced. I upgraded all these guests giving them plenty of notice, the upgrade wasn't what they had booked and one reviewer deemed this to be an inaccurate description. hope this explanation helps you to decide.

Guest access

The Cosy Cottontail Studio Apartment is a self-contained fully equipped welcoming home from home, where guests can feel at ease in their private apartment, all towels, robes and bed linen are provided for you.
You will find ample parking on the road and the drive can be used for loading and unloading. If you need to contact the host please just knock on the door, call, email or unplug the lawnmower that will get my attention, I love my home and I'm usually available should you need anything, just knock on the door and I will welcome you in and treat you like a friend.

Interaction with guests

Guests can remain as private or as interactive with the host of the Lodge House as they wish, if you require extra milk or towels or you've forgotten something like hair straighteners, toothbrush or charger just ask your host, and I will try my best to help.

Other things to note

The immediate area is very quiet and peaceful, a few dog walkers going past each morning and evening and from your window you will see wild rabbits running around the adjacent woodland, you will also see grey squirrels running up and down the trees, and the neighbouring owls can be heard hooting at night.
The apartment was once a part of my home, it has been extended and securely sectioned off from the main house, but still has the benefit of overlooking my garden lawns, patios, flowerbeds and trees, the entrance door faces the adjacent woodland, sit in bed and enjoy the peacefulness of your surroundings and listen to the birdsong...

Lovely little cosy spot. Exactly as described and in quiet surroundings. Perfect location for Ilkley and the surrounding area. The suggestions for walks and places to visit was a lovely touch. Communication with host is really good too :)

The Cozy Cottontails was the perfect place to unwind after a day's walking in the dales. It is only 45 minutes by train to Leeds as well, so you can have the best of both worlds. Mechele is an excellent host and very accomodating to all needs. The bed is very comfortable, I had a better night sleep than I do at home! The shower is powerful and sapcious. Mechele provided us with a wonderful range of jams and tea/ coffee, as well as some crumpets to keep us going. I would highly recommend staying here.

We had a great few days at the Cozy Cottontail. Mechele was lovely and had thoughtfully left us a few supplies to keep us going. The apartment was a perfect quiet cozy base which had everything we needed - the big shower was welcome after a long walk on the moor! Ilkley was only a 5-10 minute walk away which was ideal.

Cosy cottontail is even better than it looks in the pictures. Really well located and very clean. Mechele was on hand when we needed her and had written a great guide to Ilkley. She had thought of everything with lots of treats and extra touches around the place. Definitely want to come back.

Very close to Ilkley the walk by the river is very pleasant. Lots of good shops and cafes to suit all tastes. Cottage was very well equipped and the two tvs were very handy. Power shower nice and hot. A good place for a short break for a couple.

We booked the Cosy Cottontail studio for a long weekend - hubby had a couple of days doing his own mini Tour de Yorkshire & then we had a few days walking and visiting the local area. The studio was just what we needed....cosy, peaceful and perfect location for Ilkley town centre. Mechele is a most attentive host.....lots of little touches to enhance our stay. Will certainly recommend to friends & family.

We really enjoyed our stay. It was so nice to retreat to this cosy, clean and stylish place after a day of socialising with friends and family. The crumpets and homemade jam for breakfast were a real treat and the sweeties and biscuits in the jars a luxury. The shower was powerful and the bed very comfortable. We loved the fluffy towels and robes. A very stylish private annexe with everything you need for a quiet break. Highly recommended. Thank you Mechele.

I'm a warm, friendly and sociable person, I have a grown up family and as their demands upon my time have diminished, this has allowed me the time to open up my home to friends. I love entertaining and cooking, Airbnb has given me the opportunity to share my lovely home with some wonderful guests.
