Well presented and equipped lodge in a peaceful location of the lake district

The lodge at High Borrans, Dene, met all expectations and more. The lodge itself had been cleaned to a high spec, and it contained all of the equipment you could need on a lake district holiday (inluding a very warm hallway cupboard to dry boots and clothing after a long walk). The bathroom was particularly impressive, with a large walk in rainfall shower and deep free standing bath. The main room contained an electric fire, and the heating was extremely efficient, great for our stay in October. The location suited us perfectly, with only a few lodges nearby in a very peaceful spot of the lakes. It was great to hear the birds singing on a morning without any other noise! The tight country lanes to access the lodge added to the charm for us, although some may find it difficult if they don't enjoy driving on farm-type tracks (only for a short portion of the journey). Overall, i was very pleased with our stay and wanted to stay for longer.

The second time we'd stayed at High Borrans. They are still lovely places to stay although access to the lodges is getting more difficult with rough roads and paths for a small sports car. Also, the wifi signal can be patchy or even non-existent at times although the owner will offer you an alternative wifi login if it's available. We'd possibly stay again although I'd have to factor in the everything first.

Thank you for your review, Stuart. We were pleased to hear you had another enjoyable stay at High Borrans Farm. With one of 7 lodges to choose from, Dene is beautifully presented and super cosy in a peaceful and rural location. A wonderful place to stay. With that said, we are sorry to hear you had a little difficulty with the track leading to the lodge. Your comments have been brought to the attention of the lodge owners who are now looking into the matter. Thank you for letting us know of your experience and we do hope you will return for another stay soon.

Wooden cabin break

The cabin was in exceptionally good order - almost as if it was brand new. Everything was in tip-top condition. We'd certainly return given the chance.

Thank you for your excellent review Agata, we are so pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay in High Borrans, Dene. Located only 10 minutes from Windermere and Bowness, High Borrans Dene is the perfect tranquil retreat for couples. Close enough to enjoy all the local attractions but far enough away for pure peace and quiet in this stylishly decorated one-bedroom lodge. We hope to welcome you back in the future for another wonderful stay.

Peaceful location ,friendly owners. Very clean lodge with everything you need

Enjoyable stay at High Borrans lodge, ideal for us to explore the lake district for the first time. Great location being only 10 minutes drive away from lake windermere which had shops and plenty of places to eat. Lovely and peaceful at the lodge just the sound of the birds and farm animals. The lodge was very clean and has everything you need . Nice to have a visit from the owner to introduce herself when we arrived and often had a chat about our day.

Quiet, comfortable stay.

Comfortable lodge, far enough away from the neighbours. Lovely position in the countryside where you can sit on the veranda and listen to the bird song. However, it doesn't take long to get to either Troutbeck or Windermere. The lodge is well-equipped. We were pleasantly surprised to find a pizza cutter! It is also very comfortable and warm. There is a hall with enough space to hang wet clothes and 2 radiators to dry them. There are blankets which come in useful on cooler evenings. The bath was appreciated after days out mountain biking.
