Percy – A Luxury Shepherd’s Hut

The gorgeous Shepherd’s Hut at High Borrans is named after a local Gentleman Farmer & 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.

This beautifully constructed, compact and yet fully equipped Shepherd’s Hut is absolutely perfect for couples wanting a romantic getaway.  It is made by local craftsmen, Cumbrian Shepherds Hut Company at nearby Staveley.  Perfect if you love the countryside and nature but also want home comforts. The location gives you complete peace and tranquility.

Wife’s birthday

It was perfect, needed another night. Hut was like a tarsus had to go back outside to check where we were. The wife loved it in the country and a stones throw from Windermere. So much to do in so little time. We will be making a return but we will bring our bikes as we had little time to visit the area we were in. Thankyou

Great five night Summer stay

Really enjoyed our stay. The bed was really comfy and a great size. Plenty of space under the bed to store belongings. The kitchen was good and we cooked meals every evening. The fridge was just the right size for the five nights and there is a supermarket about 20 minutes drive away. The bathroom was great and the shower was spacious considering that the hut itself is limited by its size.

Short beak in Lakes

Very comfortable. Everything one could need on a holiday. A good base for exploring the Lakes. Good places to eat out close by.

Thank you for leaving such great comments, Geoff. We agree, 'Percy' is very comfortable, and beautifully designed to maximise the space perfectly. A fantastic place to stay.

A short retreat

I was going to use the Sheperds Hut as a base to do some walking around the lakes. Unfortunately by the time I got there I was unwell so I spent all my time in the hut and to say I really enjoyed it is an understatement. It’s the perfect little getaway if you need some solitude. I Netflix and chilled. Great small break and I’ll be back.

Quality 3 Nights

Everything about the hut was perfect for a couple. I downloaded the Lakside Taxis app before I went, £7.50 into Windermere every night so that we could both drink. We will definitely be booking again!

A great getaway

An amazing short break away, the Shepard’s hut we stayed in was cosy, well equipped, warm and so peaceful. We slept fantastic and woke up feeling refreshed. The surrounding area is great for walking and exploring but not really walking distance from the lakes. This wasn’t an issue as we were able to drive to the towns nearby. The only downfall was that the closest pub was a 45 minute walk away but if you like to walk like us then it’s not really a problem!

Perfect escape!

We absolutely loved the Shepherd's hut! We found the clever use of space and modern luxuries and conveniences offered to be perfect for our needs. It really was the perfect escape from city life! The location was peaceful and quiet and the hut was as advertised in the photos - immaculate and beautiful! We loved the little "sheepy" accessories! We hope to return when its milder so we can also sit outside and enjoy the peaceful surroundings but also loved how cozy, warm and comfortable we were when it was cold, wet and windy outdoors! The owners should be incredibly proud of what they have achieved with the Shephard's Hut!
