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 chose this cottage very carefully as we needed to be close to Dumfries over Christmas, have internet access, and bring our dog with us Lovely to be greeted on arrival with home-made mince pies and wine, and to find the house tastefully decorated for Christmas. We added some of our own lights and trimmings, and the cottage quickly became a true 'home from home' -- warm and beautifully furnished throughout. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare a full Christmas dinner, and we enjoyed the log fire in the sitting room (logs provided). The bathroom is very well fitted out, but note that it is downstairs and so not so convenient for the upstairs bedrooms. The games room was fun but the presence of both a pool table and table-tennis table made it impossible to play either seriously, so might be better to stick to one (we vote for the pool table!). The proximity of the sea (Solway Firth) via a short walk through the estate to a rocky beach was a real bonus. Our dog had as happy a holiday as we did! If you are looking for a cottage that is totally private, surrounded by countryside full of wildlife, with walks from the doorstep, this is for you.

We had a great time at Orroland. We found lots of nice walks around the area and found the cottage to be very homely. It was great that the dogs were allowed at the cottage. Fiona made us feel incredibly welcome.

We live in a very tranquil location ourselves, so staying in Cutlar’s Lodge was like home from home. We felt very welcome and spoiled right from the start, especially finding the delicious lemon drizzle cake and the freshly ground coffee left out for us! We felt truly pampered, and felt as though every possible effort had been made to make sure we enjoyed our stay. The cottage is so much more spacious than we realised, and the grounds have been a joy, even at this time of year. We have resolved to return in the spring to see the Rhododendrons and perhaps the summer too! Thank you so much for making us feel so welcome.

Super short stay with a well organised and equipped cottage. Breathtaking grounds with plenty of walking to do in the area. Enjoyed our row on the lake in the private rowing boat and the meander down to the sea shore especially. The cake on arrival was a nice touch. Very quiet area so great to 'get away from it all'.

Booked Cutlar’s Lodge at the last minute and we are so glad we did. It is the nicest place we have EVER stayed! We have seen the red deer, rabbits, red squirrels, buzzards and lots more. The peace and quiet was just what we needed. From the minute we woke up until we went to sleep it was so tranquil. The walks, the loch, the crackling fire, the evening sky – the delicious cake on arrival – we can’t thank you enough. The dogs have loved it too. Our only regret – we didn’t book long enough!
