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.

If you're looking for a truly special and welcoming place to stay, look no further than this charming cabin on a farm in the Lake District. The hosts went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and cared for, from picking us up when we were stranded in the snow to the delightful touches throughout the cabin (Dene). The scenery is stunning, and the amenities are top-notch. This is the kind of place that will stay in your memory for years to come. We can't recommend it highly enough!

We needed a quiet, comfortable break and High Borrans Dene gave us just that. Couldn't fault it. The bed was comfy. The bathroom superb. The kitchen well equipped and the veranda was perfect. The location meant that amenities weren't too far away, but High Borrans is definitely in the depths of the beautiful countryside. Peaceful.

Hi Helen and thank you for your kind words. We totally agree with you that High Borrans really is such a peaceful location with stunning countryside. A short drive and you are straight in to Windermere to enjoy all the local attractions. we are very happy to hear that the lodge lived up to your expectations and it gave you the respite you needed. We hope to welcome you back again in the near future.

We have just had another fantastic stay at High Borrans. This time we stayed in "Dene" which was every bit as good as our last stay in November in "Grove". This is such a peaceful retreat for adults only, located on a working farm. The lodges are extremely tastefully furnished and have everything you could possibly need for your stay, Cathy has only the guests in mind and provides a lovely home from home. There is a beautiful bathroom with a deep bath and large walk-in shower with complimentary toiletries and the most comfortable bed for a good nights sleep after walking the hills of the local areas!!! High Borrans is in a lovely countryside spot just 10 minutes away from Windermere. The sounds of the local wildlife add to the beautiful setting of the lodges. We have stayed many times in the Lakes at various types of accommodation, but High Borrans is by far our favourite. We would recommend this lovely adults retreat to anyone looking for a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We will definitely be back!!
