It’s springtime with daffodils swaying in the breeze and lambs being born, so what better way to celebrate than a fabulous sheep-inspired Gorgeous Yorkshire Giveaway? (closing date April 4)

The lovely people at Herdy have put together a Herdy hamper for us. It contains two Classic mugs, two coasters, a Peep apron, a Classic tea towel and, our personal favourite, a La’al herdy…a crocheted soft toy sheep – soooo cute! (La’al is Cumbrian dialect for little)


Herdy has a shop in Hawes and is a great British company. It was founded in the Lake District in 2007 and its contemporary, design-led products were inspired by the area’s Herdwick sheep.

It started with the Herdy mug but its range has expanded to include giftware, home, kitchen and craft products and accessories.

Everything is designed by an in-house team and, although it supplies many retailers, it only has two dedicated shops, one in Grasmere, and one in Hawes.

Sound ethics are at its heart and its founders decided from day one that they would always “give a little back” so they create the “Herdy Fund” to support community projects both here and overseas. Examples of donations include cash to buy hurdles for Buttermere Shepherds Meet and funding the training of two dry stone wallers.

**To win a Herdy Hamper, simply email us at Gorgeous Yorkshire gorgeousyorkshire@gmail.com and quote “Herdy hamper giveaway”. We will draw the winning entry next Friday, April 4.
