Founded in December 2009 by Directors Helen Shaw and Adam Lloyd, Sheepskin is an exclusive collection of distinctive holiday homes in some of the loveliest landscapes in England, Scotland and Wales. From romantic cottage hideaways to larger houses perfect for sharing with family and friends, they are original, often quirky and packed full of character blending contemporary style with rustic charm. Along with hotel style comfort – including fluffy bathrobes, log fires and iPod docking stations – the company uses its local knowledge to tailor each stay to suit guests’ interests for a highly personalised service.
In only three years, the company has received a number of awards including Best Travel Website at the Guardian and Observer Travel Awards, one of Google’s Top 7 Best of British Websites and Best Luxury Tailor-made Holiday company in the international ‘Fast 50’ from The New Europe magazine. Its properties have been included in The Sunday Times 50 Coolest Cottages and Red Magazine’s Travel Hot List.
Helen Shaw, director of Sheepskin, comments: “The Hume Whitehead team impressed us with their enthusiastic and strategic approach and clear understanding of our brand. We are looking forward to working with them to increase the profile of Sheepskin and believe that this partnership will help us go from strength to strength.”
Hume Whitehead director and co-founder, Sue Whitehead, who will be leading the account alongside Lucy Mayes, account manager, adds: “We are thrilled to have been selected to work with Sheepskin and help take their unique brand of “rustic chic” to a wider audience. The number of accolades the company has won in only three years is testament to the quality and style they offer and we look forward to working with the Sheepskin team during the next stage of their development.”
