Why Abbotsway Cottage?

The first thing you'll notice about Abbotsway is the space (or maybe the home-made cake on the kitchen table). With roomy accommodation all on one level and in two separate wings there is plenty of scope for teenagers to escape from their parents and vice versa. Here you can always find a place to relax and enjoy your surroundings.

Abbotsway Cottage is located up its own drive off the main Orroland drive and is set in its own grounds at the head of an unspoiled wooded valley. Your only neighbours are cattle and sheep enjoying the grazing in the fields opposite the cottage so you have the freedom to be yourselves without being overlooked or worrying about disturbing other people. There is always an excellent chance of seeing a wide range of wildlife and birds. The seashore is a lovely walk away - about 20 minutes - and you can drive part of the way.

This holiday cottage is particularly peaceful and private with an excellent games room making it a popular choice with families.

Cottage details

Abbotsway Cottage is a single storey stone-built cottage with its own out-buildings set around a fully enclosed courtyard which provides safe freedom for dogs and children. It's attractive garden has flower beds and lawns looking out over grass fields to woodland beyond. There is sturdy garden furniture and a BBQ.

You enter the cottage from the courtyard. A practical utility room serves as a laundry, dog room and cloakroom. Through here is the modern farmhouse-style kitchen with a table seating 8, generous food storage and, of course, a dishwasher. Next door is the spacious sitting room, with a large bay window ideal for watching wildlife and a wood burning stove for which we supply you with unlimited logs.

The bedrooms and bathrooms are in two separate wings, making the cottage particularly well suited to families holidaying with grandparents and children or where there are two couples holidaying together. On one side is a double bedroom (5ft bed) and single bedroom with bathroom next door. On the other side is the family room sleeping four in twin beds and bunks, with shower room adjacent.

The games room is accessed via a separate entrance in the courtyard, with a pool table and table tennis providing hours of entertainment for all ages.

General information

The cottage prices include bed linen and towels, electricity, heating oil and logs for the wood burner. You are welcome to arrive from 4pm and we ask you to depart by 10am. Guests staying for two weeks receive a housekeeping visit mid-stay along with fresh bed linen and towels.

My family and I stayed at Abbotsway Cottage in November 2014 for my mother's and husband's birthdays. The cottage was in a glorious setting and was so cosy, peaceful and private. Everything was spotless and we had all the kitchen facilities we needed to make a lovely meal. We were even greeted with a delicious cake and coffee on arrival. We hope to return again soon, and would definitely recommend Orroland and especially Abbotsway Cottage to families and those wanting a stylish retreat.

Orroland Estate is beautiful with lots of walks and use of the Pavilion on the loch and the Beach Hut. A very romantic place to be. The cottage was well equipped, comfortable and warm. The Games Room was an added bonus for teenagers in the party. Only short 10 min drive into Kirkcudbright meant you were still within reasonable distance for local amenities. Would recommend this holiday to folk who enjoy having freedom and space in a countryside setting.

Abbotsway Cottage is a place to recharge your batteries. Location is fantastic as you can find so much to do on your door step or just wonder the grounds. Wildlife in abundance, dolphins, deer, hares bats and owls. For star gazers the light free nights are fab. The cottage is a home from home. A comfortable lounge with a wonderful log fire to dream away the evenings. A great house keeping team if required. This is our third trip and not our last.

Beautiful place, extremely peaceful. Fiona & Rob couldn't have done more for us. I have never been anywhere in the world where all the people in the surrounding area were so pleasant. Walking around the private estate with our dogs was amazing, with memories we will never forget.
