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.

We have had a lovely restful week in an extremely comfortable cottage. Miles (the Spaniel) thought he’d come to dog heaven and became very over- excited by all the new smells! We all really enjoyed the walks down to and around the beach – relaxing for us and lots of sniffing around for Miles. If, like us, you have a lively , energetic dog I’d recommend the walk up Screel Hill. There has been a lot of wood harvesting recently so it is perhaps not looking its best, but the views were fantastic. Barhill Woods , just outside Kirkcudbright was also a good place for Miles to run around off his lead.

We came to Orroland knowing very little about it and in search of a week's pure rest and relaxation. It delivered on every point and exceeded our hopes. Cutlar's Lodge is one of the most comfortable holiday cottages we have ever stayed in (and we have tried many in all corners of the country). It is also full of character, from original fixtures such as the sitting room fireplace to the fittings such as full length curtains to keep out the cold. What we particularly enjoyed about it was that, while it's of a high standard, it is not crammed to the gunnels with either designer or Ikea gadgets and furniture. It is a homey place, somewhere in which to settle in, slow right down, and simply enjoy for what it is.

A fabulous cottage in beautiful grounds. Warm and comfortable. A warm welcome with thoughtful xmas goodies. Home made mince pies, seasonal hamper of jam, pickle, cheese, chocolates and wine. Decorated xmas tree and floral arrangement . Owners thought of everything. A very nice walk to the shore and lake. Would like to return in the summer.

We had a wonderful stay, all the special touches were really appreciated, especially the toy box! My only tiny complaint is that it was very cold in the upstairs twin room, only 13 degrees overnight. The owners and housekeeper were very friendly and helpful. Our dog and and toddler loved all the open space and the walk to the beach. The bathroom and kitchen were spotless and very well equipped. Having unlimited logs for the fire was great as it was lit for most of our stay! Kirkcudbright had everything we needed. We would love to come back in the summer!
