  • “Our accommodation was immaculate.”

    We arrived on

    We arrived on a cold rainy and miserable day but were welcome at the accommodation with the heating and lights on waiting for our arrival, which was lovely. The cleanliness was spot on and everything was well thought out. I would imagine it will be even better in the summer months. Thank you

This property is part of the Lake District Lodge Holidays collection.
From the moment you arrive in the Lake District there is a huge choice of activities and things to see as you take in Britain’s latest World Heritage Site – it’s the only National Park to be recognised for such status.

The property

High Borrans Dene is a beautiful one bedroom holiday lodge for two at High Borrans Farm near Windermere.

The lodge enjoys pretty south facing views from its spacious deck, somewhere to lounge with a coffee and a book, or just try out your photography skills.

Hazel is tastefully furnished with lovely fixtures and fittings, giving a modern yet cosy log cabin feel.

Dene will sleep two guests and is ideal for couples looking for a quiet retreat as this is an adults only location.

From the moment you leave the main road and head towards High Borrans you will sense the peace and tranquillity of the area.

Driving down the country lane you arrive at the traditional working farmyard and on through to the lodges.

High Borrans Farm is a 1000-acre hill farm, with a flock of some 1200 Swaledale ewes and around 25 beef suckler cows.

The land rises to 1300 feet on heather-clad fell tops and the farm is a wonderful environment for nature lovers.

The farmland is an Environmentally Sensitive Area and parts are also designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

On the nearby fells you are likely to glimpse red and roe deer, and closer to the farm, there are tawny and barn owls, and many varieties of bats living in the old barns.

For adventure lovers a number of popular mountain bike routes run through the farmyard itself.

This is a quiet farm with no onsite facilities other than laundry and e-bike hire.

Perfect for a tranquil break together in the beautiful Lake District.
