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.

Maw, Paw and three daughters with partners, children and dogs enjoyed a superb week at Orroland to celebrate our 40th Anniversary. The 'house' has everything one needs to cook, eat, wine, dine, entertain and simply enjoy and is very safe for the kids to roam freely outside. To sit out in the afternoon and evening looking over the water just chilling was a delight while our 'campfires' on the beach were certainly a different sort of family get together. The bedrooms are such that you do not feel that you are living on top of each other and everyone enjoyed their 'own space'. It would be our intention to return at some time in the future. Thankyou.

We stayed as a family of 10 people, 2 dogs and a baby of 10 months. Beautiful, spacious house which meant we were not on top of each other. Peaceful atmosphere in the house which meant everyone slept well. The gardens and surroundings were lovely with outdoor tables and chairs and a lovely sea view. There was a walk down to the stony beach where there was a nice beach hut and a a beautifully landscaped fernery and garden with the most beautiful flowers. This was truly a labour of love. It was so peaceful to sit on the veranda of the beach house or the rocks and listen to the birds and the waves. I could have spent most of my time there. There was also a lake and a boating house which had a barbecue, tables and chairs and patio heaters. A boat was also provided. The landscaping around the lake was beautiful. Overall everything was perfect, except the weather but we are used to that and the little town of Kirkcudbright was near, also an adventure park for the younger members of our party.

We had a wonderful stay here with family and friends for our wedding. It's a special place with lots of opportunities to relax and spend quality time with your guests. We all loved it and hope to return sometime. The owners were extremely helpful and did everything they could to make our stay exactly what we were looking for. The only problem we experienced was with the WiFi but I understand that that is being addressed.

Orroland Lodge was brilliant for my group of friends as it is spacious, comfortable, and well equipped with plenty of chairs, china, cutlery, etc. The views from the back rooms across the Solway Firth are spectacular, and the Cumbrian mountains can be seen in the distance. The fact that there are plenty of twin rooms makes Orroland Lodge almost unique as it is hard to find properties with beds preferred by my group anywhere. There are plenty of toilets which is important, and also plenty of bathroom/shower rooms so there hasn't been any queuing up at all. We made good use of the American style fridge/freezer and extra fridge, as well as the Aga in the kitchen. The coastline in Dumfries and Galloway is great for walking, and as there is plenty to see in different places. Thank you
