Bought a sheepskin (Herdwick) from this shop the other day. Absolutely love it !! Looks great on a leather sofa. This small store is packed full of sheepskins and more. Helpful service, will definitely be back on my next trip to the Lake District.

Although tucked away off the main road, this small store has a great range of sheepskins etc. It is packed high with products and the store assistant was ready with information and good advice. Quality service.
