About Us

Our estate agent, Matthews Benjamin, was established in Windermere in 1993 by the late David Benjamin and Peter Matthews, both local property experts. We specialise in house sales across Windermere, Ambleside and Lancaster.

Matthews Benjamin has since earned an excellent reputation based on trust, expertise, and care. This has been developed from a family business run by only local people with extensive knowledge and love of the local area.

Growing & Developing

In 2006, Andrew Kneale joined the company as a partner with David Benjamin, bringing with him a wealth of experience and the expansion into setting up the Fine & Country network. Fine & Country is for prestigious properties across the South Lakes and North Lancashire.

Today, we have proudly established a stronghold of offices spread across the Lake District and North Lancashire. We offer quality services for both residential and commercial sales and lettings. Furthermore, our dual branding of Matthews Benjamin and Fine & Country has allowed us to create a specialist synergy between all levels of the market. We are proud of our unrivaled reputation.
