"Go up to Cow and Calf" Ilkley Things to Do Tip by largerama

Ilkley Things to Do: 6 reviews and 15 photos


One of my favourite half or full day trips is to go up to the Cow and Calf just outside of Ilkley. It's part of Ilkley Moor so you can sing the famours Ilkley Moor Ba' T' At song there if you fancy!!

Its great for walking, climbing and abseiling but you can just go up and enjoy the view, admire 100 year old graffiti and have the wind nearly blow you off your feet. I love i up there in winter and there is a pub across the road.

Better still is to go walking across the moors until you find a pub for a pint and lunch then walk back again.

Address: Hangingstone Road near Ilkley
Directions: Get to Ilkley then ask directions in the village
