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.

Orroland was the perfect location for our wedding set on private grounds with an enchanting old styled house with large rooms and ample bathrooms to meet the needs of our large families. We had the perfect small informal wedding there. We where made very welcome by Alice and the fact that our dogs where welcome too was perfect. I highly recommend Orroland for large families wanting to spend time together with or without an occasion to celebrate. We also hired Cutlar Lodge which was also well equipped, more modern and perfect for smaller groups.

This was a family holiday catering for 10 adults and four children aged 2yrs to 10 yrs. The house met our needs and beyond with large comfortable public rooms, many bedrooms, generous kitchen and amazing dining space. All services were clearly explained and when the washing machine died a new one was supplied the following morning. We were met shortly after arrival and again before we left. The house was well heated and set in gloriously beautiful grounds with a cliff top location and access to the rocky shore. I found some of the lounge chairs too low and a bit worn but all else was fine.

As usual we all had a fantastic time! It is a great place for all three generations of our family to relax and have fun. The beach house , the loch and grounds. The rocky beach for crabbing and the pool table for our annual tournament, together with 'archery', cricket or rounders, badminton and board games, quizzes and cards. A great place to make your own entertainment. Oh! and we also have a few fitness fanatics who run and/or skip and do the 'insanity' fitness programmes. Everyone doing their own thing but coming together for lunch and the evening meal. Val from Leicester

We always find it difficult to find somewhere suitable for our annual family holiday with 7 adults, 5 children and a dog, and we were very pleased to discover Orroland, which ticked just about all the boxes - plenty of space, the right number of rooms, very well equipped and a location and sea views to kill for. The beach hut was a great bonus and the ideal location for the eldest granddaughter's 11th birthday BBQ. The grounds around the house were perfect for exploring and games of cricket, and we were all delighted to see the red squirrels feeding; I just wish they had appeared more often! We found plenty to suit everybody in the surrounding area, ranging from water skiing to the daily red kite feeding at Bellymack farm (don't miss it!) to visiting ruined abbeys and castles to lazy days on nearby sandy beaches. The only criticisms would be of the often unusably slow Internet connection and that the decoration in some parts of the house is looking a bit tired. However, these are far outweighed by the pluses and the support that the Kennedy family provided and we would be happy to stay there again.
