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 had an amazing time in Orroland. We loved being out in the country with so much space to wander in. We loved being near the sea and having the freedom to explore the estate. The cottage was brilliant with everything we needed and we enjoyed the log fires in the evening. Our 2 year old grandson loved all the toys provided and the garden was safe for him and our new puppy. We walked and walked, even in the rain ,until the puppy was exhausted and so were we, but in a good way. The local pub did good food and we had a great time visiting Maebey Farm Park and Threve castle. I am sure we will be back - thank you

After a short trip in the car I arrived with my dog to see what I expected. A lovely house in a lovely location. I had walked the roads surrounding it on google maps, I had looked at the satellite images, I had looked at every photo on the Orroland web site. And now I was here! The hour long circular walk that is mentioned in the house folder is great as it's a quiet road. The walk down to the shore is also good although I did feel a bit isolated as a woman on her own as it's quite enclosed in the trees but that's just me. Great rock pools to explore and I'm sure if my dog hadn't jumped in them first I might have spotted something! The house itself is well equipped and very comfortable. The lemon drizzle cake was much appreciated and I didn't have to share lol. My husband asked if I brought a piece home for him - sorry : ) . Fiona I would love the recipe! I only had one slight hiccup and that was when a white terrier type dog jumped over the wall and nipped my dog but that could happen anywhere. I am looking forward to a return visit soon with my husband. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Cutlar's Lodge and would recommend it to anyone. Suggestion - a tea tray would be useful unless I didn't find it, sitting in the garden was bliss in the sunshine with a pot of tea and a book, will bring my sun lounger next time!

Cutler's Lodge is a beautiful cottage in a peaceful setting. It has every home comfort and is spotlessly clean. It is well equipped for a self catering holiday having all the usual pots, pans etc, The double bed was extremely comfy with quality bedding, ideal fir a good nights sleep! The cottage is set in an amazing spot with lots of space around the property as well as a huge garden. Perfect for a get away from it all holiday. Perfect space for our dog who loved the many walks in the area. Would definitely go back!

I have marked the comfort as ok - this is only due to the lack of seating for 6 people. The lounge area could only accommodate up to 5 on the sofa and chairs, luckily one of our party was unable to come at the last moment but if she came one person would have to sit on the floor. Also, the amount of towels supplied (I know we could have requested more) there were no individual handtowels which would have been much more hygienic and could also be used to dry ones hair. Other than these couple of issues, our stay was lovely, great personal touches such as having a dog lead to use in case we forgot ours and a little bowl of doggy treats plus the coffee and cake on arrival - very nice. Would recommend to parties of 5 and under but not 6
