Summer on Otley Chevin

imageSummer has arrived at Otley Chevin B&B.  The wild garlic is almost finished, but I have preserved plenty for our enjoyment over the coming months.

Edulis foraging came over from Leeds recently and ten lovely people spent an afternoon foraging on the Chevin and then we all cooked pizzas on the terrace using some of the finds. I made wild garlic flower fritters with wild garlic pesto and a good time was had by all.

Our latest additions for guests have been chunky white chocolate cookies in gift bags on the welcome trays and homemade Scotch eggs in the picnic bags.  We are always coming up with new little extras for your enjoyment

The herb garden is absolutely bursting now and the beautiful Virginia creeper makes Pelstone Cobbles look as if it is truly part of the woodland behind.

imageDuring this sunny spell guests have chosen to eat outside on the terrace and watch the sun go down. Dusk is a busy time for the wildlife here and foxes and deer are regularly seen.
