" Impressive work from all concerned in the KF Sherborne branch. Their encouragement and support never wavered during the complex sale of an unusual property. Thanks to you all, and a special note of commendation to Lel, who showed potential buyers round with consistent enthusiasm and charm . We got there! Well done Simon Barker et al."
T Peacock, Vendor. December 2018
"We were delighted with the service that we received from the Knight Frank Sherborne team. The valuation of the house was spot on and resulted in an offer within the first week of marketing. The communications between buyer, seller and solicitor was extremely quick and stress free and all in all a great service."
G Robinsom, Vendor. August 2018
“ First class service, excellent communication and negotiation skills.. They sold our house so goal achieved!"
L Hamilton, Vendor. September 2018
“ I retained Knight Frank's Sherborne office for an out-of-the-ordinary and challenging sale: a serenely beautiful 700+ year-old manor house which is an architectural gem and steeped in history but in need of plenty of investment and TLC - and a definitely not a redevelopment project for the faint-hearted. So by no means an armchair deal. In the event, the sale attracted a lot of publicity and buyer interest, which KF were able to convert into a cash sale at above guide price.
From the word go I felt myself to be in extremely capable hands with Luke Pender-Cudlip and his team. He showed considerable judgement in his approach to valuation and sale tactics, was always available to handle queries and address issues as they arose, and kept me continuously informed throughout the process.
It was a pleasure to deal with KF Sherborne from start to finish; a masterclass in client handling and project management skills; and a classic demonstration of how a high-end estate agent can add value in such a transaction."
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Luke and his team to any would-be seller in their part of the world."
T Mansel-Pleydell. Berkley, Vendor. October 2018

“ It has been a pleasure dealing with Simon Barker and the professional team in the Sherborne office not forgetting the ladies who do the viewings.
Excellent advice, regular market information with helpful feedback right
through to securing the purchase of our new property.
Simon's wealth of experience gives one confidence you are in a safe pair
G Nixon, Buyer. February 2018
“ My uncle died and had nominated me (his NOK) as one of three executors of his Will, together with his solicitor and a friend. Turned out to be a lot of work, but selling his house was probably the easiest bit, thanks to Knight Frank. Simon gave a really personal and very professional service and his advice proved correct. The brochure KF produced was stunningly good, brought out the best of the property: we had cash offers within hours! If yours also is an unusual, character property, KF is the firm to trust with its sale. Highly recommended. ”
Tony Wood, Vendor. October 2016
“ I would like to thank you so much for your kind care, consideration and exceptionally determined approach regarding the sale of Bramble Field. I absolutely believe that without your experience and skill the sale may not have taken place. Having made the decision to move your help, particularly during the time of exchange, was much appreciated and invaluable. ”
Mrs Marie Andersen, Vendor. November 2015
“ We were very pleased with Simon’s handling of the sale of our property. Knight Frank produced a well-worded brochure, and always kept us up to date with the viewings and feedback. The communication from the whole team was excellent. We are now hoping they can sell a second property for us. ”
Mr Bromfield, Vendor. September 2014
“ The team provided a calm and professional approach throughout. We felt well supported during what is always a stressful experience. ”
Vendors. August 2014
“ The team in the office at Knight Frank in Sherborne were a joy to deal with – organised, efficient and helpful and they put together a brochure for us in what seemed like no time at all. Our house was launched on the market and almost immediately we had several viewings booked into our diary. What really impressed us was that each of these appointments were for clients who were in a position to proceed with a purchase if they thought our property was right for them. Within three days we had been offered the full asking price by two of Knight Frank’s clients. ”
Mr & Mrs Bray, Vendor. July 2016
“ It is a pleasure working with Luke Pender-Cudlip as he is professional, knowledgeable and approachable. He is committed to achieving the best possible outcome for his clients. ”

“ I have dealt with the Knight Frank Sherborne office a number of times recently and the experience has always been the same: efficient, open minded and business like. Luke Pender Cudlip runs a good ship and enjoys my unqualified confidence. ”
Sir Robert Fry, Buyer and Vendor. November 2015
“ I have bought and sold houses in many countries (for my sins) USA, New Zealand, London and France. I can safely say that the most professional, dedicated, friendly, client focused and fun team I have ever dealt with is Sherborne Knight Frank. I could not recommend them more highly. ”
Mr T Bennett, Vendor. October 2015
“ Simon Barker is a true professional and worked beyond the call of duty to unscramble problems down the chain. His caring approach to us the Clients was exceptional. We have done business with Knight Frank Sherborne and their team before over a period of twenty years and would recommend them to all prospective clients. They are an example to all the Estate Agents in Sherborne as to how a successful World Class business is managed! ”
Mr M Place, Vendor. December 2014
“ We were very pleased with the professional and considerate way in which Knight Frank managed our recent simultaneous sale and purchase. From initial valuation and marketing, subsequent negotiations through to completions they maintained a firm grip on progress and ensured that positive momentum was maintained. The team is led by engaging and experienced partners assisted by very efficient office support and well chosen people to show houses. The successful outcome is evidence of their excellence. ”
D. Pender-Cudlip, Vendor. October 2016
“ Estate agents have a bad name, but Knight Frank in Sherborne are an entirely different story. We already had our offer accepted on the house we wanted - for sale with another agent, which Luke at Knight Frank had spotted for us – but the negotiations for our own sale were extremely protracted and painful. Luke was, over many anxious weeks, unfailingly calm, and wise beyond the call of duty, even advising us not to activate a bridging loan which could have wiped us out. It all came good in the end. The team in the office is switched–on, well-informed, and kind. ”
Mrs Glendinning, Vendor. March 2015
“ Luke was always absolutely on top of what was happening: an accurate appraisal, excellent photography & marketing, efficient showing and tracking of interest, skilful negotiation of the deal and then always involved in everything right through to exchange and beyond. And through it all he was most agreeable. His team were very pleasant and efficient, too. ”
Mr and Mrs S Mahony, Vendors. August 2014
“ Knight Frank took a great deal of time and trouble to prepare an attractive brochure for the house with some beautiful photos which attracted a steady stream of viewers. Everybody in the Sherborne office was courteous and helpful at all times. The sale was somewhat complicated and Simon in particular worked very hard to expedite matters leading, thankfully, to a successful completion. ”
Mrs S Snell, Vendor. May 2014
