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.

Had a lovely stay at this well maintained and clean cottage, excellent facilities, beautifully furnished and In a lovely quiet peaceful and secluded setting. Pleasant walks down to the beach and round the Loch. It was an excellent choice to stay with our dogs as there was a practical utility room and outdoor kennel, plus a properly enclosed courtyard which made cleaning and drying easy. There was a delicious homemade cake and tea was set out for our arrival, Melinda was very welcoming and gave excellent advice about local eateries, shopping and walks.The area has some unspoilt towns with good shopping choices, and so many walks that it was difficult to choose which to do first. Thank you for our great holiday, we would love to return sometime.

Looked forward to our return visit to Abbotsway and it didn't disappoint, we arrived on Saturday to a well prepared home, everything you would expect to have at home is there ready to use, the cake which didn't last the night I might add was mm. The log fire is so warm the the back door had to be left open which our Irish and Welsh terriers loved. The weather was mostly good considering it was late February and the walks with the dogs on the estate and beach were brilliant. The new bathroom at the top of the house has been finished to a high standard and with the addition of new beds make this the ideal comfortable holiday home either in summer or winter. Can't wait to visit again

Thank you once again for a fantastic holiday in Orroland. The cottage as ever is wonderful. Love the new bathroom and had wonderful restful sleeps in the new beds. We can highly recommend Griersons the butchers in Castle Douglas. It was lovely to see you again Melinda. See you next year for visit No. 9. Everyone wants to come back including all our teenagers! Thank you

Thank you so much for a fantastic stay at Abbotsway Cottage. We have been to many cottages, but this cottage has been by far the best. We both have very busy jobs and looked forward to some peace & quiet and that is exactly what we got. The games room was enjoyed by my son and the rest of the family (was nice to get some quality family time). The dogs also had a great time at the beach and back at the cottage where it was safe for them to roam around the courtyard. We have to give this cottage a 10/10, so much so we have booked again for the summer. Thank you again for a lovely break and a very welcoming arrival. See you in June 2015!

We stayed here in January and so didn't expect good weather but we got snow, frosty mornings, sunny days and clear nights which made our stay at Orroland even more special as I expect they don't get snow too often on the coast here! The cottage is well equipped, comfortable, warm and tastefully decorated. Miranda allowed us to bring four dogs and she was also flexible with our start day which meant we could stay for the week, she even kindly told us that as there was no booking after us, there was no rush for us to leave on our departure day. The estate is beautiful and we enjoyed sundowners both in the summerhouse and the beach hut! We enjoyed the privacy of no near neighbours at Abbotsway and the courtyard which was great for the dogs first thing in the morning and last thing at night in the dark as it is secure. The housekeeper was very friendly leaving us a delicious home baked cake upon arrival and she was always at hand but only if we needed her. We would love to return in spring to see the estate blooming. Thanks to all
