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 had a wonderful week March/April at Orroland Lodge, there were 12 of us with an age range from 25 to 90 and everyone throughly enjoyed themselves. The location set above the beach has stunning views over the Solway Firth to Cumbria not always visible while we were there. When I walked through the doors for the first time I couldn't believe how big the house was and how warm it was. The whole time we were there we were never cold, in fact we spent most of our time in tshirts whilts in the house, while the wind, rain and snow blew outside. We had lovely walks on the beach, and around the beautiful grounds. Every morning we were entertained by the red squirrels having breakfast. Our dogs loved the gardens, and the boot room was a great place to dry them off in before they came into the kitchen and snuggled in front of the Aga. All the bedrooms a very spacious as are the downstairs bathrooms. The two upstairs shower rooms are small but adequate and if you need more room the downstairs wet room is great. The sitting room is vast and many an evening was spent playing Articulate with much cheating and laughter. The kitchen is well equipped and we all took turns in cooking. To sum up the week, good food, good wine, good company, lots of laughter all set in a wonderful location in a stunning house. Thank you

Something for all; children, adults and dogs. Spacious accommodation that more than facilitated our large group with very friendly owners/keepers. We certainly benefited from some excellent weather that allowed some stunning views across the Solway. A shame the beach wasn't easier to walk, but would definitely return.

Wonderful large house for family gathering. Fantastic views and privacy. Perfect location. House full of character. Interior not as new as the photos suggest but that didn't bother us. All firewood supplied for the roaring fire. Hope to return next year.

Orroland Lodge is a magnificent house, in a wonderful setting. The facilities are excellent, everything you need is available. The AGA in the kitchen is fantastic, and was more than adequate for our Christmas meals. Obviously, visiting over the Christmas period, meant some poor weather, but we were still able to go for walks in the magnificent grounds, visit the shore line, and on very wet days, there were books and games provided to keep adults and children happy. My only very minor criticism, was the very slow wifi, and no mobile service. But the wifi did work, you just had to be patient, and it was rather nice not to have mobile phones ringing. We enjoyed our visit to Orroland Lodge, and plan to return, very soon.
