Welcome to The Cow and Calf in Ilkley

In 1844, the country's first hydropathic hotel, The Benrhydding was built on the site of The Cow and Calf. In 1873 the building became a private residence called Highfield House, then in 1949 it became a boarding house. When visiting The Cow and Calf, look out for great views across Wharfedale and historic features, like the old Victorian well that still sits in the grounds.

A country pub oozing rural charm and rustic character, our picturesque surroundings provide the perfect backdrop for savouring the hearty, seasonal pub-food on our menu, and the carefully nurtured cask ales and fine wines gracing our bar.

Whether you are planning dinner with friends or Sunday lunch with family, book a table online and enjoy some quality time with those you love the most.

Make a day of it

Once a celebrated spa hotel in the 19th century, our distinctive inn overlooks the famous Cow & Calf rock formation on dramatic Ilkley Moor. It's a panoramic place to wine, dine, relax and rest up overnight.
