Born in the English Lakes and inspired by the cute and lovable Herdwick sheep, herdy creates unique, design-led products that are made to make you smile! Our small but beautifully formed shop in the centre of Grasmere stocks the full herdy range of contemporary giftware, including fine bone china mugs and pure wool throws as well as tea towels, fun postcards and chunky keyrings. Herdy gifts make great mementos of time spent in the Lakes.

Ambleside, Grasmere, Keswick are just a few towns with a Herdy shop. From tea towels, cups to notebooks. There are some very bright and beautifully unique gifts for the sheep lover or just a gift from your visit to The lake district.

Hello and glad you are enjoying our herdy shops in the Lakes - at the moment we only have Grasmere and Keswick, and another one over at Hawes in the Yorkshire Dales. You may have gone to Ambleside TIC or Detail, two of our trade outlets who carry a limited stock. Either way, we're happy you enjoy herdy and we... More

Nicely set out with colourful Herdy products. Love the range and the bright cheerful designs. I didn't purchase anything today but still enjoyed looking and getting ideas for gifts.

We visited the Herdy shop on a recent trip to Grasmere, drawn in by the colourful sign and window display. What a lovely homage to the local Herdwick sheep! I bought a bright green contemporary design fine bone china mug with the loveable sheep smiling out - perfect for my morning coffee. There is a great range of colours and... More

Hi chinnamasta and thanks for your lovely review! Glad you enjoyed our little shop - as you can tell we love Herdwicks! We have a slightly bigger range up at Keswick if you're ever further north.

I visited the shop today to pick up an umbrella and sheep for a friend and wanted to pick up a mug for myself for work.

Hello Sarah Jane, thanks for visiting our Grasmere shop. As you say its quite small so we don't have room to stock seconds here (we have some at our Hawes shop, and on-line). The price for our first quality mugs are £11 each - for a unique, hand-made fine bone china mug made in England in the Staffordshire Potteries. As... More

I visited the Herdy Shop in February this year and purchased a few items, one for them was a Herdy mug. When I got it home and made a cuppa in it I realised it had a crack in it. I emailed the Herdy head office and advised them of this. I had thrown receipts, tags etc out and they... More

It's a small shop selling sheep stuff. It's not an attraction or, if it is, it might suggest you did not do your research too well! Recommended length of visit? 3-4 minutes.

This is a wonderful little shop in the centre of Grasmere. We were starting our walk from the Rothay Garden Hotel and could not resist the colourful scarves in the window. They are made from locally sourced wool and beatifully made, and we returned the next day to buy a large woolen blanket and cushions for the sofas. The shop... More

Herdy is a firm favourite of mine - i've been back 4 years in a row now - always something quirky to catch the eye. Not cheap as others have commented but well worth a mooch and you'll definitely enjoy the experience. Have also been to the Keswick store - bit bigger - but similar stock. Staff always friendly and... More
