Sheila’s on the Sheep’s Head
Sheila’s home has a very special story. The land belonged to her family and what is now a beautiful space was once a small cowshed. Sheila is a carpenter (as well as a teacher of carpentry skills) and over the course of 10 years, with the help of assistants, contractors, and a lot of work from the woman herself, Sheila’s on the Sheep’s Head was born!
The cow shed became what is now known as The Cottage. Take a look through Sheila’s book on arrival to see for yourself the amazing transformation. In 2011 the West Wing was added on to create space for retreats.
