Live like a local at Rhoscolyn

Rhoscolyn, a much loved and cherished holiday home that has been in the Folkes family for over fifty years. A wonderful retreat that has something for everyone, from relaxing at the house watching oyster catchers and gulls on the beach below to walking from the door to the fantastic White Eagle pub to adventurous outdoor activity that is on offer nearby.

We speak to family member Amy who has been holidaying at this Anglesey coastal hideaway since she was a tiny baby. Sharing both fond childhood memories and revealing some favourite places to eat, visit and do.
Rhoscolyn House was originally a Fisherman’s cottage but the house has grown with the family over the years and, though it remains a tranquil and cosy retreat, it is now a luxurious place to stay by the sea. Life in this quiet corner of Anglesey is dominated by the sights and sounds of the sea.

With the beach on your door step, this large house is a firm family favourite for many looking for the ultimate stylish, coastal escape.

Escape to Spring Barn

I am a relatively new member of the Sheepskin team and getting to know so many unique and wonderful properties is certainly a treat! As you can imagine, the only real way to learn and fully appreciate the layouts and styles of each property is to pay them a visit and photograph them…and if we are lucky enough, even stay the night.

Live like a local…at Whymperis Cottage

We speak to the owners of Whymperis Cottage, Karen and Tony about their favourite  places to visit,  things to see and do and find  out what is it that they love most about this medieval Shropshire town of Much Wenlock.

Built in 1840,  Whymperis Cottage has been beautifully modernised inside & out. Retaining many of its original features, it blends many locally sourced vintage finishing touches with contemporary styling; from the original oak floorboards in the bedroom to the up-cycled light fittings in the lounge.  It creates a fascinating story….the amazing space that passion built.

Soaking up the sights and sounds of Shropshire and Snowdonia

As part of the Sheepskin ethos we like to visit our properties and their surrounding areas as often as we can. We are lucky that the maintaining standards side of the job can be so fun and adventurous!  I am a relatively new addition to the Sheepskin team and being a passenger and photographer for this road trip was definitely a bonus. I was able to fully appreciate the fascinating views of Shropshire and Snowdonia in the sunshine as we clocked up the miles to see our Sheepskin favourites. Parts of Snowdonia in particular reminded me of the far away landscapes of New Zealand; wonderful to find so close to home.
