Excellent facilities

Very nice clean cabin far enough away to be quiet but close enough to everything so that you didn’t feel isolated. Lots of mod cons. Would be good for short or long stays.

Relaxing Stay

4 nights: The cottage was spotlessly clean and very comfortable, apart from the bed which we adapted with blankets etc in order to be able to sleep on the mattress. We also put 'padding' at the bottom of the bed over the wooden base legs to prevent smashing our legs. There were only 5 coat hangers which was totally insufficient and we could not unpack most of our suitcase. We would have liked bigger bath towels, face cloths and a few more items of cutlery, especially as we were doing all our own cooking. We were a little surprised that there was not a 'starter' pack of the basic necessities such as we find in Australia and which saves the holidaymaker having to go immediately to the shops for items such as milk, bread, cereals. The shower was excellent and the rest of the bathroom, no expense spared. Notwithstanding the minor irritations, we had a lovely, relaxing stay; very peaceful, warm and the free laundry facility was extremely helpful and appreciated having travelled so far. We were not far from Lake Windermere which was our main reason for visiting the area and the excellent shopping facilities at Kendal. Would highly recommend this venue for anyone who wants to unwind and just forget the hurly burly of city life.

For those looking to escape the hustle and bustle, the most perfect place to be. Noting the mattress was not to your liking, we are sorry.

A springtime hideaway

We have recently arrived home from spending a week at this wonderful location and missing it already. We wanted to spend some down time together away from the hustle and bustle of every day life and enjoy the peace and quiet. We certainly had oodles of that at High Borrans and with the added pleasure of spending our time in an extremely comfortable lodge type accommodation. High Borrans "Holt" was one of just seven lodges plus one shepherds hut which was located on a well kept site which is part of a working farm high in the hills. Location wise this is not for holiday makers who want regular evening entertainment and is certainly not suitable for children hence the owners decision to make the accommodation available for couples only. For us it was a little piece of heaven - quiet with just the wonderful bird chorus and the occasional sounds of farm animals. Myself and my husband are admittedly getting on in years and the farm was located in such a position that we could easily access the many pathways and walks beyond the farm following well signposted bridleways and with the amazing weather that we had during our stay we indulged in much needed exercise in beautiful surroundings. The accommodation was cosy and beautifully furnished kept to a high standard with a lovely wrap around verandah that you could use to sit and watch the sun go down. We loved this place and would recommend it to anyone wanting that peaceful getaway holiday
