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.
Burgess, McCann and Allison families

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.

We arrived at Orroland lodge to find a lovely homemade cake waiting for us. The lodge itself is absolutely gorgeous with stunning chandeliers. The views over the Solway are spectacular, so much so this was where we chose to have our wedding ceremony and wedding reception here. It was a fantastic location for our small wedding. We had a perfect day. Thereafter we enjoyed a trip down to the beach hut on the shore line and enjoyed a walk up to the pavilion and summer meadow. Everyone commented that Orroland was such a fantastic location. The lodge itself is very spacious and provides excellent accommodation including large bath tubs and luxury Egyptian Cotton towels. We loved sitting out having breakfast on the patio overlooking the sea. It's simply an amazing place and we absolutely loved our time here and were very sad to leave.

We enjoyed our family weekend at Orroland Lodge very much. We found that the large kitchen, dining and drawing rooms provided the perfect spaces for the family gathering and for the larger buffet lunch and party (30 people) on Saturday. Many of the guests were local people but were unaware of the Orroland Estate and were very impressed with the Lodge and its setting. My family particularly enjoyed sitting out on the patio on sunny evenings and we had a very enjoyable barbecue on Sunday, when some of the men were also able to try their hand at fly fishing. My husband had some success, catching two fish of two and a half pounds each. We enjoyed walking down to the beach and around the gardens and grounds and were very impressed with all the improvements that the Kennedy family have made to the estate in recent years. A couple of the showers are a little dated and difficult to use, but I believe that there are plans for further refurbishment in those areas. Aside from that, the accommodation was very comfortable, practical, well equipped and clean. I was also impressed with the speed with which the Kennedy family responded to my queries in the lead up to our stay. Thanks again for providing such a lovely setting for our birthday celebrations.

My wife and I regularly enjoy holidays with large groups of family or friends and have visited many of Scotland's large holiday homes. It can be difficult finding a place that 'ticks all the boxes' for everyone. Orroland delivered in all areas of expectation- comfort, quality, location, facilities.... Our stay in Orroland Lodge was perfect. The lodge overlooks the sea with a patio and viewpoint leading directly from the lounge - delightful spot to sit and have morning coffee - is surrounded in a wealth of wooded and landscaped gardens abundant with bluebells and wild garlic (we visited in early May) and a delight for the bird watchers in our group. We were a group of artists, so found the use of the pavilion as a studio with it's large log fire a real boon if the weather turned on us! There is also access down a winding path to the rocky beach - another stimulating space to enjoy. The house is very comfortable with flexible accommodation and a well appointed kitchen - the Aga providing a constant homely warm welcome. The large dining room and lounge easily accommodated our group of 12 people. We are hoping to organise another painting holiday soon and can envisage a long relationship with this little bit of paradise.

The Orroland Lodge I would recommend to anyone, young or old. Arrival in the sun to well-manicured drives and gardens was a joy. The staff were so helpful and friendly, nothing a problem.The lodge is well-equipped and comfortable. Great!
