Stefan (Tanner's Yard Apartments, Kendal)
Excellent customer service, pro-active marketing and great occupancy rates. A far better experience than our own park and other letting agents we’ve used.
Barry (White Cross Bay, Windermere)
Since joining Herdwick Cottages, I have been very impressed by the outstanding level of personal service from everyone on their friendly and professional team.
From sourcing contractors when problems arise, regularly reviewing pricing and booking levels, dealing with guest requests and issues, alerting about legislation changes, promoting the property to securing bookings, they make it so easy!
It was a big decision to move the property from a national company to another agent, but I am so glad I made the move to Herdwick.
I am happy to recommend them.
Kate (Skylark Cottage, Ambleside)
Adam Terry and the team at Herdwick Cottages are extremely helpful they go above and beyond for both clients and customers.
We would have no hesitations recommending letting through this company.
Wendy (High Brow Edge Farm House, Backbarrow)
I am so pleased with the attention to detail by Herdwick.
Moved from a national company and have not looked back. I can highly recommend Adam & his team!
Sarah (10 Castle Cresent, Kendal)
We have been delighted with the service and support that we have received from the whole team at Herdwick.
Adam and Terry guided us through the process of setting up the house as a holiday let and have been invaluable in providing some great local contacts for electricians, Fire Assessors etc.
Their local knowledge and calm support made the whole process a great deal easier and more manageable that I initially feared! From a day to day point of view, the fact that the Herdwick Team is both a) local and b) staffed by people who have good common sense and a general willingness to support has been incredibly helpful. As opposed to some of the larger, more national companies, where everything is process driven and can be faceless, Herdwick’s personable and practical approach is second to none.
I would recommend them without hesitation.

The team at Herdwick are fantastic, both to owners and guests.
They are responsive and exceptionally helpful, which is a refreshing change to large corporate companies.
We moved to Herdwick as owners a year ago and couldn’t be more delighted with Adam and the team.
Bev (Garth Cottage, Bowness)
We have been really pleased with Herdwick. They have been great to work with and the communication is great. When we have had problems with our shower etc they have helped us out.
We trust them and wouldn’t use any other agent.
Jamie (The Old Police House, Cowan Bridge)
From assessing the property to going to market Adam & Terry have both done an amazing job of making the experience of turning my home into a holiday let an easy and increasingly rewarding one.
Having very little bandwidth to spare around my job, and busy family life, I was very concerned that I would not be able to successfully get Stamp Howe ready for holidaymakers, as it needed quite a bit of work alongside various assessments and certifications.
The Herdwick Team have also made managing costs and receiving payments very easy indeed!
Mark (Stamp Howe, Troutbeck)
I chose Herdwick Cottages as I spoke to other Agents and they all talked the talk but don’t deliver.
Adam & Terry were straight talking and said they would do their best for me. I couldn’t be happier, they have excelled in every way. Sorted any problems I had and bookings have been plentiful.
The best thing I ever did was having them as my agent for my holiday let.
Deborah (High Gregg Hall Farm Cottage, Underbarrow)
We cannot recommend Adam and Terry at Herdwick Cottages enough, as cottage owners, we find them fantastic to work alongside. They are approachable and nothing has been too much trouble in what can only be described as a difficult year. Their online owners portal is simple to navigate and use, they are flexible and willing to listen in terms of how we want our cottages to be advertised and priced. They are always at the other end of the phone and will go the extra mile to help in any way. Thank you, Adam and Terry.
Robert & Lesley (Patton Hall Farm Cottages, Kendal)
Consistently good service. Nothing is ever too much trouble. Excellent attention to detail. Conscientious and friendly. What’s not to like?
James (Kent Cottage)
Herdwick Cottages are a fantastic company to manage your holiday rental, your property is in very safe hands. The staff are very approachable and friendly. Nothing is too much trouble! They are always available and willing to help with advice and guidance. Their local knowledge of the area helps them market the property in the best way. The bookings we have achieved through them have surpassed other National Companies. I would highly recommend the services the company offers.
Jayne (Forrest's Yard Apartments, Kendal)
Adam and Terry are fantastic to work with! This is my first-holiday cottage and they are there for me any day of the week to help with any questions I have. Nothing is too much trouble for them. They give beautifully packaged complimentary tea, coffee biscuits which the guests love! Payment statements and booking notifications are so easy to follow with everything simply listed out. I can do nothing but recommend Herdwick’s they are great!
