High Borrans Lodges are located on a 1000 acre working Lakeland Farm in the fells between the Troutbeck and Kentmere Valleys. The popular Central Lakes villages of Windermere, Bowness & Ambleside and the main local attractions are within easy reach. The nearest shops and supermarket are a short 10 minute drive away in Windermere (3 miles). The nearest pubs are in the nearby villages of Ings or Troutbeck.

The small development of just 7, well positioned and spaced apart lodges and a Shepherd’s Hut take advantage of the peace, tranquillity and lovely views which surround the area. The accommodations are adjacent to a bridle path from where guests can set off on foot or bike to explore the surrounding scenery.

The area is a nature lover’s paradise and High Borrans perfectly combines the peace and tranquillity of the countryside whilst maintaining easy access to local lakes attractions and amenities.

This is our 4th time staying here and once again it was another perfect break. The lodge is like our second home, the walks are fantastic for our dog and the peace and tranquilty is just what we needed. Cannot fault this lodge at all and will be returning again next year.

Thank you for your excellent review and ratings, Kay. We are so pleased to hear you had another perfect break here. High Borrans is a fantastic location and with having direct access to walks from the lodge is ideal when bringing a dog. We are delighted that you keep returning and have such a good time and we look forward to you coming again next year.
