Navigation Content Activities in the Peak District


    Sheepskin’s unique, beautiful holiday homes are managed by an experienced and enthusiastic team that has intimate knowledge of the collection, as it is company policy for staff to stay in as many properties as possible so that they have first-hand knowledge to share with guests.  The company offers a bespoke, personal service intended to help you tailor-make your break, so that you make the most of your precious time off. 

    Why the name Sheepskin? It’s different, memorable and it’s a great symbol of creating warmth and style within a rural environment, which is exactly what Sheepskin aims to do. Here is the Sheepskin Peak District collection:
