Around Cutlar's Lodge
The private drive winds down the hill with mown verges, woodland and farm fields. Beyond, you notice the sea with its impossibly high horizon as the view over to the Lakeland hills and the Isle of Man opens up to be nothing short of breathtaking. Past a little waterfall, then you follow the unicorn's nose and suddenly on your left here's your pretty cottage with dormer windows like friendly eyes welcoming you. Here the view opens out to reveal the wild flower meadow with its ornamental pond and a glimpse of what looks like Rapunzel's tower between trees beyond. These views are yours when you stay at Cutlar's Lodge.
This holiday cottage has great character and its own unique cosiness. Right at the heart of Orroland's landscaped grounds it is ideal for exploring Orroland itself as well as the naturally inspiring region of Dumfries and Galloway.
Cutlar's Lodge is a two storey detached stone-built cottage. It is set in its own attractive garden, which is fully enclosed providing safe freedom for children and dogs. There is sturdy garden furniture and a BBQ so you can enjoy the garden and views to the full.
The cottage accommodates 6 people in three bedrooms. Downstairs you will find a modern well-equipped kitchen with dishwasher, tall upright fridge/freezer, table & chairs and door to the garden. The kitchen leads through to the dining room, sun porch and sitting room with comfortable sofa and armchairs, open fire - with unlimited logs supplied - and TV/DVD. There is a little laundry room with a washer/dryer and sink. On the other side of the kitchen is the bathroom with shower over bath, WC and basin and adjacent twin bedroom.
Upstairs you will find a double bedroom (5ft bed) and a twin bedroom, both with wash hand basins.
The simple games room is accessed via a separate entrance and houses a pool table and table tennis with TV/DVD.
Cutlar's Lodge has ample off-road parking and a garage suitable for one car.
The cottage prices include bed linen and towels, electricity, heating oil and logs for the open fire. You are welcome to arrive from 4pm and we ask you to depart by 10am. A landline phone keeps you in touch with family and friends whilst away, if you choose to share the number.
“Great to return to Orroland after 10 years for a birthday celebration with frends and family”
A terrific location and especially enjoyable if you have dogs that love to run around. Beautiful cottage, well appointed and very helpful and friendly folks on hand to answer any questions and assist as required. Really pleased that we decided to return after so long and plan to go back again sooner next time. If really looking to provide constructive feedback, we may suggest an outside tap and hose which we would have welcomed to clean the mucky paws of our dogs, and only having one toilet/bath/shower can be a challenge if there is a full house, but we managed perfectly well. Great place, highly recommended!
“A very Happy Holiday”
Thoroughly enjoyed our weeks stay at Cutlers Lodge in Feb 2017 What a wonderful setting and a lovely homely cottage with everything you could want, could not have asked for more ( ok mid teen temps and solid sunshine would have been v nice...but hardly going to happen). Made to feel very welcome and a lovely cake from Fiona was very much enjoyed. We found Cutlers lodge to be very comfortable and what fantastic views to wake up to every day, along with wonderful walks and great photo opportunities. We will certainly be booking again and very much looking forward to another stay with you, thanks guys.
“Cutlar's Lodge, a warm and inviting cottage in a stunning grounds”
We came across Orroland Holiday Cottages while searching for a dog friendly property with an enclosed, secure garden in a quiet location. We could not have been more pleased with what we found. The property was warm and inviting, with an open fire and unlimited logs. In a very secure and spacious garden for the dogs to run around. The kitchen was extremely well equipped, with everything you would ever need. The grounds were stunning. We hope to come back in each season to see the change in colours. We enjoyed exploring the area, visiting the many beaches, historical sites and forests. We would thoroughly recommend these cottages and the surrounding areas. Thank you to Melinda, Fiona and the rest of the Orroland Team for such a warm welcome.
“Another wonderful stay ”
“A perfect getaway ”
We hired out the property for family to stay in for the week of our wedding at Orroland Lodge, however we have stayed at the property ourselves a number of times. Its perfect for couples of small families, and worked particularly well for the family who used it which included my elderly grandmother who could sleep downstairs, with the bathroom on ground level she didn't have to navigate the staircase at all. Its a fantastic place for those who enjoy nature and walking, or those who just want to sit outside/in front of the fire with a good book. Cutlars has fantastic views. Our family had stayed at Cutlars some time ago, and were extremely impressed with how it had been updated and modernised inside. Everyone loved the cake and found it perfectly clean.
