Is there anything better than a weekend away in a fabulous lodge? Er yes, one with a luxury relaxation pack thrown in for good measure!

You may remember I wrote about my stay at the Old Farm in Snowdonia (below) before Christmas, one of Wheatley-based Sheepskin Life‘s beautifully appointed houses and lodges.

I really rate this company – the properties are just lovely, and they think things through from a punter’s perspective, so you get concise, tailored information packs prior to leaving and a goodie bag of food essentials (and a few luxuries) on arrival.

We’re all skint now of course, but if you’re thinking of renting somewhere in the next few months (I for one am quietly plotting a girl’s weekend away at Chescombe Lodge in the Cotswolds) it’s worth knowing that, if you book a Sheepskin Life property before the end of January for a stay anytime until the end of March, you’ll get first dibs on the mineral soak bath salts, hand-knitted bed socks, natural soap, eye mask, scented candle and bath massager.

There’s green tea in the pamper pack too but you can generously donate that to a fellow guest – we all know you’ll be back on the champers by then.
