    “We loved the shepherd's hut from start to finish.”

    It was very peaceful up there and the views were to die for.

    It was very peaceful up there and the views were to die for. The hut itself was amazing so much comfort in a sml space. I would recommend this to any couple who want time to themselves and rest

The property

Welcome to High Borrans Percy - The little Shepherd's Hut High Borrans Percy is a perfectly formed Shepherd's Hut located at High Borrans Farm which is owned and managed by the Hodgson family. The farm is set in a peaceful rural location and yet only a 10 minute drive from the centre of Windermere with its shops, cafes and restaurants. The Shepherd's Hut is named after local gentleman farmer and shepherd, Percy Warrener. His legacy of encouraging the latest generation of the Hodgson Family to continue with traditional sheep farming methods, is a fitting reminder of how farming has shaped the Lake District through the years. Local craftsmen at the Cumbrian Shepherd's Hut Company constructed the hut. It is beautifully designed to maximise the space. Despite being compact, it has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The Shepherd's Hut will sleep 2 guests - perfect for couples wanting a romantic getaway. Sorry we are unable to accepts dogs at the Shepherd's Hut.
