Details

Addingham, a former textile mill village on the banks of the River Wharfe, is about ten minutes' drive from Ilkley. Addingham Moor has been home to a village since the Iron Age. The textile industry began in the 1500s and flourished until the Industrial Revolution, with many mills operating in the vicinity.

Nowadays, Addingham is a tranquil village with several excellent shops and restaurants, as well as access to the neighbouring Bracken Ghyll golf course. The Addingham Gala is held in July and includes a parade, fell racing, and various stalls and festivities.

The area is perfect for cyclists, with several great circular routes to choose from, many of which begin (and conveniently end) at the village's Swan pub. Travel through some breath-taking countryside on your way to destinations such as Ilkley, Skipton, and Bolton Abbey.

For walkers, crossing the river to the north will take you into the Yorkshire Dales, while crossing to the south will take you to the Ilkley Moor. Whichever way you go, you'll find some wonderful walks with plenty of possibilities as you explore, perhaps even wandering into Ilkley to break the day with a delicious cup of tea and some cake!
