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 Shepherds 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.

Please note: Strictly no children or infants are permitted at High Borrans.

Perfect long weekend

My partner and I had a lovely long weekend at High Borrans in September. The Shepherds hut is absolutely gorgeous, with lots of lovely personal touches and the setting/views are amazing. The location is great, we walked into Windermere a few times and tried out some of the beautiful walks that you can go on straight from the hut's front door! We would definitely return and have recommended to all our friends since we got back!

Our first visit to a Shepherds Hut, definitely not out last

We were testing the hut as we are about to get the same model ourselves. It was beautiful and luxurious. Well equipped for two people, apart from the ever so tiny frying pan. The heated towel rail wouldn’t come on, although the precious guest had remarked how hot it was. Also no mention of whether you could or couldn’t bbq, and I couldn’t see one provided. Had the weather been better we would have wanted one. Small gripes because the whole experience was lovely and restful .

The perfect spot for a romantic rustic weekend

Our 3 nights in the Shepherd's Hut at High Borrans was exactly what we were looking for on our Easter weekend getaway. The location was perfect for us: up in the hills, away from the hustle and bustle of the lakeside towns, but still within 10-20 mins drive of loads of stuff. The hut itself is beautifully done and very welcoming, with all of the conveniences that you need. Our only sadness was that we didn't get to stay for longer...

Beautiful hide away for a relaxing break!

The Shepard’s hut is the most beautiful use of space! We absolutely loved our stay - never felt more relaxed in the atmosphere! It’s placed in a perfect location that’s not too far away from all things needed - but still feels secluded. The spa and gym was brilliant & to get this free was fab! Would 100% return and recommend!

Shepherd's Hut Stay

We were blessed with great weather for our stay, which made it even more enjoyable. The hut was extremely clean and tidy and everything we needed was there. We would certainly recommend the Shepherd's Hut to stay in if you want to go somewhere secluded and quiet.

A Perfect Getaway

We had the most peaceful and calming stay. Everything was so chill and the place is beautiful. The decor of the shepherds hut itself is so clean and charming. It was the perfect few days away. The views are totally amazing. Great location, not far from the town with plenty of places to eat and explore. Close to many glorious walks and a short drive away from Ambleside and Kendall. If you want a romantic getaway for two we would highly recommend this fantastic place.

Last year we stayed near Hawkshead and in the lodge there were details/maps of walks in the local vicinity. Can I suggest that details/maps of walks around/near the farm are included in the file in the shepherds hut?
