Long autumn walks in search of Sloes in North Yorkshire

Phil and Caroline’s Sloe Gin was a huge hit with friends visiting Flamborough Rigg Cottage B&B last Easter so the hunt is already on for this years supply of sloes.

Phil had his eye on a few locations but you have to wait until the first frost before picking them…..we are sworn to secrecy!

Katie, Lily and I have tried a few sloes that we found on the ground, Yuk! We can’t understand what all the fuss is about, they are so sour. We are, however, happy for the excuse for more long autumn walks through the forests and countryside surrounding us here at Stape, North Yorkshire. Katie and I love hiding in the piles of red and orange leaves and jumping out to surprise Lily.
