  • "Was a lovely and peaceful break away for myself and my partner, loved being able to watch the wildlife out there."

    Claire and Steve were so welcoming and very helpful with our bags and taking us to the log cabin. Will definitely be recommending to our family and friends as we enjoyed our stay here.

The property

Tucked away in a secluded location on the outskirts of the charming town of Silsden rests this quirky roundhouse, Moss Bank, Jacobs Wood.

Encompassed by the picturesque countryside of West Yorkshire, Moss Bank, Jacobs Wood offers an idyllic base for an intimate escape with your significant other.

A handy parking space greets you upon arrival, before you head down the steep track in private woodland to the lovely dwelling, hidden amongst the greenery a short distance away.

Stepping into the holiday home, you're welcomed into a delightful open-plan living space, beautifully appointed with a contemporary décor and boasting a stylish kitchen nestled alongside an intimate dining table, providing the perfect space to prepare and enjoy a romantic meal for two.

Settle in for the evening on the sumptuous sofa for a movie marathon, or if you're lucky enough to experience good weather, head outside to the patio to cook al fresco or relax in the wood fired hot tub, soaking in the wild woodland atmosphere - if you time it right, you might catch the deer as they feed nearby.

As the day draws to a close, retire to the elegant double bedroom, where you can drift off to the sound of your favourite television show, and in the morning, prepare for another day of adventure with a rejuvenating rinse in the contemporary bathroom adjoining the room.

Lace up your walking boots and explore your picturesque surroundings on foot, seek out the local landmark of the Dew Stones toward the summit of Ilkley Moor, a scenic expanse of moorland rising 402 meters above sea level and boasting panoramic views across the encompassing countryside.

The 17th century restored manor house of East Riddlesden Hall is within easy reach, preserved by the National Trust and decorated with period furnishings and formal gardens, or head out to the nearby market town of Skipton, where you can explore the well-preserved medieval castle and dungeons dating back to the 12th century.

Treat your significant other to a romantic retreat at Moss Bank, Jacobs Wood.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

About the location


Bolton Abbey 8.5 miles; Ilkley 8.5 miles; Skipton 9 miles.

The pretty town of Silsden, set on the edge of the stunning Yorkshire Dales National Park, commands sweeping views of the River Aire and its valley, and has a thriving community with local amenities. Although Silsden was originally an agricultural town, the construction of the nearby Leeds and Liverpool Canal meant that it later became an important centre for the mill industry, however the local economy is now largely supported by tourism, and it has become a perfect place to stay and explore the local area. Down the Aire Valley lies historic Skipton, known as “The Gateway to the Dales”, a quaint market town boasting an ancient castle open to the public, a beautiful old parish church and a colourful market occupying the cobbled setts each side of the high street. In 2008, the Academy of Urbanism voted the high street as the best shopping spot in Britain. In the next valley lies Addingham, a thriving, small community with several good pubs serving fine ale and excellent food, a scattering of small shops and a delightful golf course surrounded by breathtaking countryside. Nearby Bolton Abbey is one of the region's most scenic areas and the walk along the river to the Strid is a must. The Victorian Spa town of Ilkley is also worth a visit, with its wide streets, world-famous Box Tree Restaurant and Bettys Tea Rooms, while Ilkley Moor is the subject of Yorkshire's unofficial anthem “On Ilkla Moor Baht at”. With steam railways offering regular excursions through stunning scenery, canal day trips, castles and pretty market towns all available nearby, Silsden is a wonderful base for touring the Bronte Country and North and West Yorkshire.
