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.

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?

Anniversary stay

Myself and my wife decided to stay here for our wedding anniversary and as soon as we arrived we loved it. If you want peace and tranquility there really is nowhere better. The hut is amazing inside and out.

Lovely little shepherds hut

We had a lovely few days staying in the shepherds hut while we explored the Lake District. This was our first time visiting the lakes and we couldn’t have picked a better place to stay. The location was so close to Windermere and Bowness but far enough away that it was ‘off the beaten track’ and so peaceful. The shepherds hut itself was clean, cosy and comfortable and the perfect size for just the two of us. We would definitely stay again.

The perfect getaway

This was the perfect place for our getaway, had a 3 night stay, which we really enjoyed, a lovely cosy hut, in spotless condition, and fully equipped, would certainly recommend, looking forward to our next visit.

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.
