  • "We have been on many lodge holidays with you including Sykes Cottages, mostly to either Limefitt or White Cross."

    This time we decided to look further a field, for a change more than anything else. We found High Borrans on your site and were drawn to Spinny Lodge, as it looked fantastic and also allowed dogs. The website overview, on both this location and the lodge, did not do either justice. The lodge was located on a working farm and it was fantastic to be surrounded by sheep and new born lambs. The owner of the lodge, Cathy, came and welcomed us and after letting her know it was our wedding anniversary and that my wife has always wanted to bottle feed a new born lamb, she made this happen. We cannot thank Cathy enough for this, as she went out of her way to accommodate. Spinny lodge was like home from home, it is definitely one of the cleanest lodges we have ever stayed in and it had all the creature comforts. Broadband was excellent, cleanliness was fantastic, the entire lodge had all expected facilities. We would highly recommend High Borrans to anyone wanting to be in a tranquil location, with fantastic views and within easy access of all Lake District locations. Thorough enjoyed the week and will definitely be booking this location again, thank you Cathy. Regards, Steve and Mhairi Rea from Wakefield.

  • "The lodge was spotlessly clean and finished to a high standard with everything you could possibly need."

    Lovely peaceful place but only a few miles out of Windermere. We had our two dogs with us and just behind the lodge was a public bridleway on to a lovely area to walk, very quiet not a busy tourist walking area, so the dogs especially loved it. The birds singing was the only noise to be heard and it was lovely. We were very comfortable in this lodge in this lovely area and will be back for another chilled relaxed break at some point in the future. Highly recommended.

    The Spinney lodge was lovely to come back to after a long day of hiking. It had everything we needed, and the fire gave the cabin a warm and cosy vibe in the evenings. It was lovely opening the curtains in the morning to see pheasants and other wildlife just outside. We’re looking forward to our next visit!

    The location is great, close enough to key spots to venture out but nice to feel like you are out of the way in the countryside. Lovely and quiet. The kitchen was fully equipped and the lodge was very warm and cosy. We loved our stay and will definitely return! As dog owners, we were thrilled to find such a lovely spot with dog-friendly cabins available and a nice walk directly from the site. There is even an outdoor hose to clean the dogs off after a long walk and dog towels available for use. Great touch! The host Cathy is very friendly and accommodating. Cathy introduced herself to let us know how to contact her if needed and left us to enjoy our stay. Looking forward to our next trip!

    Thank you for your kind words, Miss Johnson. High Borrans, Spinney is a stunning lodge and the location is simply fantastic. A great place to stay. We look forward to welcoming you again in the near future. Property Owner

    We stayed in Dell and our daughter stayed in Spinney. The owner, Cathy, went out of her way to make our stay one to remember. Cathy went above and beyond what was expected and we thank her for all her help. The lodge was immaculately clean and presented beautifully. Lovely walks just behind the lodges with stunning views. Very well equipped laundry room too. The only bad thing about this holiday was having to leave. Thanks Cathy.

Everything was spotless and we didnt need to bring anything, all tea/coffee ect was provided! All the utensils including a pizza cutter. It's the perfect base for a trip to the lakes, we enjoyed being able to sign into our netflix at the evenings and catch up on some series! Another perfect stay at high borrans!

  • "We had a lovely stay in the lakes."

    The lodge was exceptionally clean on arrival. It's lovely how you have thought of dogs by adding the hose pipe and dog towel facilities. The bathroom is lovely and the bed is so comfortable. The lodge was very well equipped, however might I suggest that you add a pizza cutter to the kitchen and conditioner in the bathroom. I decided to have a bath on the last night of our stay, however the water was cloudy and had a pale green colour to it. It did not smell, so I decided to get into the bath as I wanted to use it, however I felt I needed to shower afterwards due to the green colour of the water. I am not one to complain, especially when everything else in the lodge was so lovely. Thank you for our stay, our dog also had the best time and we would love to come back.

    Thank you for the review. We are so pleased to hear you had a lovely stay. This is a delightful lodge that’s beautifully presented for guests to simply relax and unwind. That said we are sorry to hear you had an issue with the water. We have advised the owners and we are sure any issue will have been quickly addressed. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused. We have also passed on your suggestion for a pizza cutter. High Borrans, Spinney is a great place to stay and perfect too for our four legged friends. We hope to welcome the three of you again soon. Property Owner

  • "The lodge is very well designed and comfortable all around with a nice comfortable bed, lovely bathroom and well equipped kitchen."

    We had a wonderful stay enjoying the country atmosphere provided by the location and the general feel of the lodge. In the evenings we enjoyed relaxing in the living room; the television was slightly small but did the job just fine. The property was very clean and cared for. There are only a few very mild criticisms / comments to bear in mind: - the bedroom window either did not open or was very stiff (we couldn’t manage to get it open) - there is only one oven tray which may be a pain for some if cooking a larger meal (otherwise very well equipped) - the plugs in the bedroom are fixed to the wall by nails that mean you can’t plug in certain shaped plugs. This was slightly annoying as it meant I could only use one of the sockets. - no conditioner provided (very minor point) Otherwise we were very happy with our stay and enjoyed the experience:

    The location was okay near enough to Windermere which is what we wanted!

    Miss Bethan McdonaldJun 2017

  • "Having stayed at the lodge quite a few times, I am delighted to say that it is a wonderful spot for a relaxing, get-away-from-it-all break at any time of year, The Spinney at High Borrans has all one could ask for and never disappoints."

    . However, since changing letting agents last year, the lodge has become quite pricey for a holiday for two which may prompt some (your reviewer included) to not make The Spinney their first choice - a shame as it really is an ideal property for anyone seeking comfort and seclusion. What did you enjoy most about your stay? The peace and quiet (excepting the natural noises of countryside and farm) What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? I would recommend a stroll up to Orrest Head for the wonderful panorama revealed there. This walk can be done from High Borrans although this does necessitate a little walking on quiet roads as well as field and low fellside.

The property

High Borrans Spinney is a modern 1 bedroom holiday lodge at High Borrans Farm near Windermere.

Tucked away from the farmyard, the lodge offers a stylish and welcoming retreat, with modern décor but a cosy log cabin feel – the perfect place in which to relax and unwind.

The lodge sleeps 2 and is perfect for couples and welcomes two dogs.

With an open plan kitchen, living and dining area, and patio doors leading out the spacious decking and outdoor furniture, you’ll be enjoying the views and fresh air with your morning breakfast or evening glass of something chilled.

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.

As this is a working farm please keep your dog under close control.

A tranquil break from the modern world, but with the bustle of Windermere a short drive away.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.
