Sheepwalk House is run by brother and sister team Matt and Jenny Headen alongside Matt’s partner, Fanny Rotsaert. Jenny is a music and events publicist, while Fanny and Matt have spent the last 10 years as diving instructors in far-flung places across the world.
Newly opened in July 2020, we can’t wait to offer you a warm welcome to Wicklow. We live on the grounds, tucked away in small cottages so we are always on hand for anything you may need – whether it’s local tips, ideas for day trips, tour guides or local must see sights – we’re delighted to help.
The grounds feature a large 8 bedroom main house and 4 cosy self catering cottages – all set on 9 acres featuring a poly-tunnel, an orchard, 16 raised beds, bee hives, sheep, hens, pheasants, gorgeous trees, fabulous wild flowers and an abundance of birdsong. Sheepwalk House is the perfect place to relax, unwind and enjoy a slower pace of life. Whether you wish to hike in the mountains, splash in the sea, ramble in the forest or just curl up with a book in front of the fire, the options are endless.
There’s lots of lawn for kids to play and explore – and they’re welcome to come help us collect eggs from our hens in the mornings.
Avid travellers, we’ve stayed in many different spots over the years and have taken inspiration from our favourites. We’ve stocked the house and cottages with things we’d want on a trip away.
Our cottages are comfortable and cosy. They are not luxury cottages but each one has its own charm and character and are kitted out with lots of nice things, with comfy beds and spots to settle in and take it easy.
