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.

Found things in the shop quite expensive, wanted a keepsake & spent £11 on a Herdy Mug. Felt a bit of a mug after purchase.

Visited Grasmere on our way to Keswick. Once we found out the road to Keswick was closed due to the recent floods we looked no further than calling at pretty Grasmere. The heady shop is full of wonderful unusual gifts with a charming member of staff to offer help and advice. We bought a couple of mugs and now when... More

There's always something in the Herdy shop in Grasmere to cheer up the house/kitchen. Very happy with the new planter today and just need to find some herbs that will live in it on the windowsill in our kitchen without withering and dropping dead. The people who work in Herdy are also always very chatty, friendly and helpful. Baaaa !

We stopped at the shop and found the selection of products reasonable. While great marketing gimic, the products were over priced. Great for window shopping.

Hi and thanks for your comments. Glad you like our products - many of them are hand-made in England so will be a little bit more pricey but you are buying a unique hand-made product that will hopefully make you smile! Where we can we support British Manufacturing. More

We've just had a 4-night break in Grasmere, and called in at The Herdy Shop as I wanted a new oven-glove. I was spoilt for choice, as the range of colours is amazing, and the quality of everything is excellent. The young man who served us was very helpful, friendly and efficient, so we'll definitely be visiting The Herdy Shop... More
