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 Shepherd’s 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.

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!

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 .

Thank you for your very kind review Helen, we are so pleased your enjoyed your stay. We have passed on your comments to the owner for their reference, thank you and please accept our apologise for any inconvenience caused. This beautifully presented shepherds hut is truly a wonderful place to stay and it is designed perfectly to give guests the ultimate relaxing break. We are delighted you are looking to return and we look forward to welcoming you back.

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...
