    Bed was the best we had slept in when staying away. Beautiful area and very peaceful.

  • "Great accommodation."

    The only few points I would say are it would be great to have more than four mugs and tea spoons so that washing up does not have to happen so often when wanting a cup of tea or coffee. Also there was a very loud dripping outside the bedroom whenever there was any rain (saldy in the lake district this happened frequently. This kept my wife and I awake a lot. It might be a gutter leak so could be an easy fix. Other than these we would definitely come back.

    Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay in the Lakes. Unfortunately there is a lot of rain in the Lake District and I apologies if this affected your stay and will pass this maintenance issue on to the owner. We look forward to you returning in the future. Property Owner

  • "The Grove lodge was comfortable and extremely clean with all the amenities you need, plus a fully equipped kitchen."

    We tried out some of the walks from High Borrans and also walked from Ambleside which is a 10-15 minute drive away. Overall, a great weekend getaway and would definitely recommend!

    Check out the microbrewery pub in Ings, so good we went twice in a row!

  • "Everything was absolutely amazing!"

    The lodge was beautifully furnished with everything that is needed for a comfortable stay. The bathroom is by far the best feature, with a huge bath and shower. The lodge isn’t too far from Kendal and other towns where food and leisure activities are available. However, please note that the lodge gets extremely hot when the sun is out!

  • "We had an amazing time in the Lake District and loved our stay at High Borrans."

    We would highly recommend it. The lodge was well equipped and spotlessly clean. It is in a perfect location and a short drive into Windermere. My only suggestion on improvement is to add a curtain or black out curtain in the bedroom as it is pretty much daylight from 5am with light coming through the Venetian blinds and as it was our first lie in’s without children in over a year I would have loved a longer sleep. :) Only minor gripe was lack of internet as the WiFi was down completely during the last day and night of our stay. We would definitely recommend and re visit High Borrans if visiting this area again.

  • "We stayed for two nights and it was amazing."

    The location is perfect, quiet and remote but close enough to shops and restaurants. The lodge its self was just fab too. Comfortable and clean and very smart. Would definitely stay again. What did you enjoy most about your stay? The location and property were fantastic. What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? Walk from High Borrans

    Mr Oliver LaceyOct 2020

  • "The lodge was spotlessly clean and finished to a very high standard."

    The location was perfect for us because we needed to relax and recharge after working non stop through this awful pandemic. It was lovely and peaceful but still only 10 minutes from Windermere. This holiday exceeded our expectations. What did you enjoy most about your stay? Peaceful setting and the stunning lodge. What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? We love Coniston Waters and would definitely recommend eating at The Bluebird Cafe on the lake.

  • "My partner and I had a really lovely time at High Borrans Grove, the farm is nicely tucked away and in a picturesque location."

    The lodge was immaculate and decorated beautifully. The location was perfect too, it is 10-15 mins drive away from Windemere and very close to Ambleside and Grasmere. We also hired the electric bikes, I would highly recommend spending a day on the bikes exploring the beautiful surrounding areas. Overall, I would highly recommend one of the lodges at High Borrans and hope to return one day. My only (tiny) negative point was that the TV remote didn't work very well but we managed! 10/10. What did you enjoy most about your stay? The beautiful lodge and the surrounding areas. What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests?

The property

High Borrans Grove is a modern and stylish one bedroom holiday lodge at High Borrans Farm near Windermere, with wonderful south facing views of the surrounding fields.

Beautifully furnished, the lodge has a traditional log cabin feel, with large outside decking and furniture for enjoying an al freso meal, or morning coffee and listening to the sheep baaing in the fields and the birdsong.

It’s the perfect place in which to relax and unwind.

Sleeping two guests in comfort and style, High Borrans Grove is an idyllic retreat for just the two of you.

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.

A perfect location to truly relax and unwind.
