High Borrans Percy is our unique shepherd’s hut named after a local gentleman farmer and shepherd who was a close friend of the family. Jonathan was inspired by him to keep the family business alive by continuing to farm traditionally in the Lake District. The shepherds hut is a small but perfectly formed, quirky slice of comfort. Perfect for those wanting a more unusual and quirky stay without having to compromise on comfort. With built in underfloor heating, a fully equipped kitchen, shower room and even an electric stove, the hut perfectly summarizes the term compact coziness. The hut was locally handcrafted by The Cumbrian Shepherds Hut Company.
