Why Orroland Lodge?

Leaving the main drive you swing right onto Orroland Lodge's private drive and wind through mixed woodland, following a burbling stream with wild ferns, flowers and farm fields beyond. Here sleek cattle enjoy the succulent grass with enviable views of the sea. Rumble over your cattle grid and past the head of one of the paths leading to the shore. There's still no sign of Orroland Lodge until the road sweeps round to the left and the Lodge emerges from the sheltering trees in all its glory.

You have arrived at a holiday house that is large and impressive in appearance, offering accommodation that is very easy to live in. Listen for the ethereal sound of the sea in harmony with the birdsong; sounds that are totally unobtrusive and good for the soul.

Enjoy the spacious, elegant and comfortable accommodation in this former shooting lodge. You can relax on the sheltered, sunny terrace and feast your eyes on the views across the Solway Firth to the Cumbrian mountains. All along the front of the house the rooms have uninterrupted sea views (there's no such thing as a bad view at Orroland Lodge). You are a stone's throw from the steep wooded slope leading down to the private rocky shoreline, where you will find driftwood to collect and rock pools and caves to discover. The large flat rocks are ideal for barbecues, picnics and sunbathing.

Property details

Crunch your way across the gravel to the main door that leads into a long hall from which all the rooms are reached. Opposite you is the spacious drawing room with open fire, large bow window and verandah door leading to the garden and terrace. High ceilings and a fine chandelier made by the owner, William Kennedy complete the feeling of elegance.

To one side is the spacious kitchen and the practical spaces of the house like the pantry, larder, utility room and boot room with door to outside. Also a bathroom and a shower room, both with WC. Through the light, airy kitchen is the dining room with configurable tables enabling the space to be adapted to suit your party. There is a pool table (which can be used as a sideboard if you prefer) and a door to the garden and terrace. Larger parties will be glad to find that the room can comfortably seat 30 guests with plenty of elbow room.

To the other side of the drawing room there are three bedrooms on the ground floor. One of these is the large master bedroom with king bed (5ft) and en-suite bathroom. A shared bathroom serves the other two bedrooms, which are twins.

There are two staircases at opposite ends of the house, each leading to a pair of bedrooms with a shared shower room. Three of these rooms are twins; the fourth can be set up as twins or a super-king (6ft).

This large century-old lodge is continuously being improved, always reaching new, even higher standards of comfort and convenience. The elegant drawing room with open fire, spacious panelled dining room and well-equipped kitchen all add to Orroland Lodge’s attraction as an exceptional location for a holiday or gathering for groups of friends, special occasions, wedding receptions, family reunions and parties.

What a fabulous holiday! The house is out of this world, so well equipped it has everything you would ever need. The location and scenery are breathtaking.

The place was perfect for relaxing with our group. People could walk around the grounds or chill in one of the many rooms. Well organised cupboards. Grwat space & bathroom/bed numbers. Only thing is maybe saying its charcoal bbq so people bring coal.

We arrived at Orroland on a Saturday evening and stayed for a week. We loved every moment from then on. We walked on the seashore, we relaxed at the summer house, we had champagne and rowing boat races at the lake house. We cooked wonderful meals in the very well equipped kitchen. We slept soundly in the very comfortable bedrooms and in the silence that surrounded us. Our dogs had the freedom to run and play with no danger of traffic. There were 12 of us having a large family get together and it was the perfect place. We can't wait to go back. We were blessed with the weather but most of all we were blessed with the wonderful Orroland Lodge.

This year was our 10th year at Orroland Lodge, this year we also had friends staying at Cutlar's Lodge (18 of us all together). We had a fantastic time as usual, the grandchildren were 5 years old when we first came - now at almost 16 they are still keen to come with us all next year. Each year something new and special has been added, the beach house, the new patio, new kitchen, the 'Hares' etc. There is always something for everyone to do, whether it is crabbing on the beach, taking the kayak out, a pool tournament, cricket and rounders or 'bows and arrows' ( you can't call it archery), or photographing the wildlife or running early in the morning !! There is also the shopping contingent ( the same two each year) who have sampled all the cafes and coffee shops in Kirkudbright and Castle Douglas. We have a thoroughly relaxing holiday in a beautiful setting and everyone looks forward to the following year. Highly recommended.

We have visited this property a number of times and each time found it to be beautifully clean, well presented and providing all the features we required for a peaceful retreat, shielded from all the pressures surrounding more populated areas. The extensive gardens, which included wild flower meadows were particularly noteworthy this year. The addition of a new garden balcony overlooking the bay and with table and chairs was a particulare delight for breakfast meals and evening drinks. The property and large grounds are superb for those that would enjoy walking and the surrounding area is very well placed for bicycle, dog walking and fishing acivities. The propoerty and grounds are a credit to the careful thought and detailed work invested by the owners over many decades.
