Live like a local…at Cappele Cottage

We know that your time away is precious and that being able to find those quirky hidden spots, great pubs or shops with just a flick of a page makes life much easier. In our live like a local blog series you can read where our owners most like to hang out, shop, walk or even spend a lazy afternoon.

Making the most of your time off      Not forgetting when you stay with Sheepskin, we tailor make each stay to suit guests’ interests. We use our local knowledge (sometimes the owners) to search out the best places for exactly what guests want to do during their holiday and include all of the information guests need in a tailor made guide. This personalised information guide is sent to guests four weeks before their planned stay (or sooner if they book less than 4 weeks out) so that they have plenty of time to plan their time in their special place.  Have a peek at our Bespoke Itineraries page on the website too, just to give you a little more inspiration.

Handmade Bread at Nantwen

A few of our owners make freshly made bread for our guests when they stay. Always a welcome treat spread with passion fruit curd from our welcome pack and a mug of teapigs tea as soon as you arrive.

One of our guests loved the handmade loaf of bread at Nantwen so much that they asked for the recipe. Our lovely owner has kindly written up the recipe for us so we can all make a loaf for ourselves at home…

So much to do in Shropshire…

When my family and I stayed at Little Cwm Colebatch we had 3 generations of the family together. Finding something for everyone to enjoy wasn’t hard at all in Shropshire.

 

Blists Hill Victorian Town

Blists Hill is one of my families favorite places to visit in the UK and we try to visit every year. It is ideal for any age group and each time we visit we learn something new. A whole Victorian town has been created for you to wander around. Visit homes and houses, talk to the inhabitants about their lives or visit shops, an iron foundry, a victorian pharmacy, the printers, a sweet shop…. You can easily spend a whole day here. Why not buy a pie at the butchers or have tea in the tea shop, there is also a large picnic area as well if you wanted to bring a picnic.

Inspirational hideaway in the Brecon Beacons

During a family holiday Sheepskin hideaway Lletty in the Brecon Beacons, Colin a keen walker and photographer (and owner of Morrisphoto photographic centre) took many beautiful images of the inspiring landscapes.

Wonderful, mesmerising views from the huge garden of family holiday home.

On a walk from the house Colin stopped for a while in this tranquil woodland clearing and a little further afield in the Black Mountains looked back to take this distant image of Lletty sitting on the side of the valley hidden in the trees…
