    Quality and Service
    This shop is packed with very high quality hides of all descriptions. We went with a specific brief, a herdwick sheepskin rug, to match a grey interior. Literally nothing was too much for the owner who selected numerous rugs, we took a long time comparing and finally selected one. A very interesting rug, extremely good quality and fairly priced. We could not be happier.

    Best Sheepskin Slippers ever!
    This place is amazing. We visited 10 years ago and I bought a beautiful pair of sheep-skin wool slippers. Everything they sell is top quality, and these slippers have lasted 10 years, and I wear them A LOT! (Even in summer). Decided it was time to buy a new pair. Although the shop had moved, the same owner manager was there, and we had a great chat. I was not disappointed - they still offered a superb range of quality slippers, and my daughter bought a lovely warm pair of wool gloves. There's no other place like it. Highly recommended!

    We didn't plan this but...
    The lure of the sheepskins was too much. What a range and what lovely options! We popped in for a quick browse and walked out with a new merino sheepskin. The choice of colours and textures, the different qualities and sizes is exceelent. Service in the shop was spot on, too. Letting us know he was there to help but letting us get on until needed.

Bought a fabulous sheepskin for my arm chair. Not pushy, knowledgeable and pleasant time spent browsing in shop. A must visit if in Ambleside.

I was looking for a new sheepskin for my car front seats and whilst on holiday in Ambleside, it was a no-brainer to visit this shop. I'd already purchased a sheepskin here a couple of years ago as a rug for my bedroom, so I knew they had a good selection to choose from. Rick took the time to determine the best skin and price point that I was looking for, so I came away with the perfect solution.

Bought a sheep cuddly toy and paid £23 - it was 9.99 in another shop close by. The same thing ! Disappointed and overpriced!

Dear funkykat8, Thank you for sharing your thoughts about our beloved sheep cuddly toy. We're here to give you a different perspective on your experience and perhaps even bring a smile to your face! Now, about the price comparison - we understand that it might seem like a bummer to have paid more than you found in another shop nearby. However, we'd like to shed some light on this woolly situation. Our sheep cuddly toys are not your run-of-the-mill stuffed animals. We take sheep cuddling to a whole new level with three distinct types of sheep, each carefully crafted for maximum cuddliness. We're talking Ambleside Sheepskins exclusives here! So, finding the exact same sheep in another store might be as rare as finding a unicorn wearing a fleece coat. In fact, our sheep cuddly toy collection is so vast that it rivals the number of stars in the night sky - over 15,000 sheep strong! We're talking the ultimate cuddle inventory. As for the chance that someone managed to clone our cuddle-flock, well, let's just say it's a bit like saying pigs can fly. It's not just unlikely; it's practically mythical. We truly care about making our customers happy and ensuring they have the fluffiest of experiences. If you were disappointed with your sheep, we would have gladly leaped over the moon to refund or exchange them. It's a shame we didn't have the chance to chat face to face before you penned this review. And guess what? While we can't offer you two sheep for £9.99 (as much as we'd love to), we do have a roaring deal happening right now - the "Deal of the Year" as we've affectionately dubbed it. Two sheepskin rugs for just £100! That's right, you can turn your living space into a cozy oasis that even the most discerning sheep would approve of. So, funkykat8, we're here with open arms (or should we say, open hooves?) to welcome you back and share a laugh or two. Let's put the "baa-d" vibes behind us and embrace the fluff-tastic times ahead. Fleecingly yours, Ambleside Sheepskins

We did the Windermere boat trip and decided to stop off at Ambleside. Weren’t we lucky as we stumbled across this beautiful shop. I have never seen so many different types of sheepskins and off course I had to buy one a very beautiful Icelandic rug it’s absolutely stunning. Would really recommend a visit.

Fantastic quality sheepskin rugs and other products. Really friendly service. We have bought several rugs now and keep coming back for more. The quality is amazing and the service and expertise is excellent. A great local business.
