I have a pine cladded holiday home in England.The exterior has been stained by manufacturers with sikkens wood stain. I have tried to re stain. I’ve rubbed down and prepared carefully but the paint at the edges just curls and I cannot get a smooth, durable finish.Is it the spirit? Should I use a different, ater based stain instead?

It sounds like you need to sand these areas that are peeling up prior to applying new stain. It may take a couple of extra coats to blend in the sanded areas. You must feather it out or it will be blotchy looking when dry. I would not recommend putting water based stain over it.
