Owner description: 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.

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

The colours area striking, that's what's attract me into the shop. They sell mugs, tea towels, blankets and 100% knitting wool, all in those attractive colours. A part of their profit goes to projects, such as keeping the bridle ways open, etc… I'm certainly going back next time I'm in Grasmere, and I certainly can recommend this shop.

Great place to shop if you like sheep! Everything you could wish for for the sheep lover. I especially liked the knit your own herdy back pack or the big umbrellas. Also available on line. Just a little expensive!

We stopped in on the day of the Grasmere Sports festival last autumn and had a wonderful experience. The young lady working that day was very nice and went out of her way to help us. I just wish that I had remembered to post a review sooner. We live in the US so dropping by for a quick fix... More

I fell in love with the Herdy products--mugs, blankets, etc. Many are at Raise View House. Found that I needed to buy them through the American branch of the company, and not all products are available there--sigh!

Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. We’d love to grow faster in the States! We can’t get the whole range over there just yet, but in the meantime you’re welcome to order from our herdy.co.uk website and we’ll ship. PS. Karen at Raise View House has excellent taste in home décor:o) More

This is a great place to indulge oneself or to buy novel, trendy gifts to take home and if you love sheep, then this is best baaah none!! A homage to the local, Herdwick breed that suffered so harshly in the foot and mouth epidemic some years ago, there is all sorts of fun and useful stuff to be had... More

The herdy sheep icons are simply adorable. For unique and colourful gifts that represent the Lakes District beyond your usual twee landscapes and pottery you must take a look in here.
