I know Caroline and Philip are quite proud of our garden here at Flamborough Rigg Cottage, they call it their work in progress but it has lots of lovely established plants. I try and do my best by helping out with the digging, although they never seem very grateful for my efforts!


Our garden here at Flamborough Rigg Cottage is currently full of very pretty flowers such as: hellebores, primroses, tulips, magnolia stellata, rhododendrons, ribus, bluebells, camellia, daffodils and azeleas.


For some reason us dogs are not made very welcome in some of the fine gardens in Yorkshire so we have to stay at home and snooze while the humans go off and explore. Below is a list of some of North Yorkshires finest gardens that are on Caroline and Phil’s done or to do list. I have noted the mileage from Flamborough Rigg Cottage so I can figure out what time you will return with treats for me………
