Excellent Stay

This was our first visit to High Borrans Spinney and I can certainly say it won’t be the last. We arrived and the lodge was beautiful, much bigger than we expected and absolutely spotless. High Borrans is the perfect location to enjoy the peace and quiet to be able to relax and unwind out in the country with only a short 5 minute drive into Bowness to enjoy everything The Lakes has to offer. We brought our Cocker Spaniel, George in our trip and he had a great time. He thoroughly enjoyed lying outside on the patio area soaking up the sun. We will definitely return to High Borrans in the near future!

Such a lovely stay.

We had a lovely stay at High Borrans, Spinney. The lodge was in a great location and was only a short distance from local amenities. The lodge was beautifully decorated and had everything we needed. It was lovely that Cathy came to check we were okay a few hours after our arrival. We will definitely be returning to High Borrans as it now holds a special place in our hearts as we got engaged during our stay. Thank you for a lovely stay!

Lovely cosy cabin break with the dog

We had a great stay in the lodge. Location is beautiful, nice and peaceful but only a short car journey away to Windermere, Ambleside etc. Cabin is great, everything you need and the bath after a long day walking was fab! Our four legged very much enjoyed his first holiday and trip to the lakes - we’ll be back.

Weekend getaway

We felt that we needed a short break where we could relax and take our dog with us. This was ideal once I found the email with instructions as my sat nav decided to pack up and there was no phone reception so google maps was out of the window. Great lodge and had a nice walk down into Staveley. Top tip. Print off the instructions which are spot on. Hope to go back soon.

Get away

We stayed for 2 nights as a little get away for our 15th wedding anniversary with our dog Betsy. Spinney is spotlessly clean, fitted out to a high standard and in a wonderful surrounding. We had a fantastically relaxing time and I can honestly say the only thing missing was some kitchen tongs (and some sunshine- but I guess that's out of anyone's control!)

I booked this as a surprise form boyfriends birthday. Safe to say him and the dog absolutely loved it. The lodge itself was perfect. So cosy and had everything you needed. Plenty of radiators throughout, so lovely and warm (which I was worried about) The whole lodge was spotless ! Was about a 15 min drive to the nearest town which was perfect. The path at the farm was a lovely little walk through the fields. Would 100% recommend and hopefully come back for longer next time.
