Ilkley weather - a personal view. Speaking as a local (Leeds) who almost relocated to Ilkley, the weather was one of my considerations. The main town lies on the northern side of the moor (which for those unfamiliar with the area is a pretty big hill, about 1,500 feet ) which means many residents of the town live in its shadow, and must rarely see a sunset.

This location, coupled with the River Wharfe in the valley contribute to a micro-climate which can be a little darker, cooler and damper than just a few miles along the A65 towards Leeds where the road climbs towards Bramhope and lifts you up into the sunshine again!

This all said , there is of course the alternative solution chosen by some of Ilkley's Millionaire residents - live in a nice big house high on the other side of the valley. Handy for the golf club, Middleton woods and great views across to the moor with the impressive Cow and Calf rocks. If you can't afford your own indoor pool, then the Lido is just down the road - a great way to cool off after sunning yourself on the veranda
