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.

“A wonderful late season break.”
We both thoroughly enjoyed our short 4 night break at Orroland as did Dylan our Yorkie. The cottage was lovely and had everything we could need, including a splendid cake from Fiona! Fiona was happy to welcome us despite our late arrival and point out the walks available in the lovely grounds and gave a useful insight in to the local area. Being able to walk right down to the beach is a great bonus. The holiday passed all too quickly but we hope to return before too long. Many thanks.
“Fabulous property in a stunning location”
“A fabulous retreat!”
“Orroland Cutlars Lodge”
Our family of 5, including 3 teens (plus dog) stayed in August. We really enjoyed our stay and made great use of the pool table. Orroland is lovely and we enjoyed our walks down to the pebbly beach with loads of interesting things on the strandline and in the rock pools. Delicious cake on arrival, thanks Fiona! The only minor thing, which we knew beforehand, is that you do need to use the car to go anywhere - except for an Abbey and café (which was excellent), about 1/2hrs walk away. All in all though we had a great time and would stay again if in the area.
“My summer in Scotland”
Six of us had the most wonderful time at Cutlar's Lodge for 11 days! Most evenings we had a cozy fire going reading, talking or watching a movie! And the days were idllyic driving to various beaches, getting our feet wet, even swimming one day, and visiting quaint villages, talking to natives, hiking! And just walking around Orrolands' gardens was a treat! So we are very thankful to the Kennedys for providing such a beautiful place for us! Judy
