Why Abbotsway Cottage?

The first thing you'll notice about Abbotsway is the space (or maybe the home-made cake on the kitchen table). With roomy accommodation all on one level and in two separate wings there is plenty of scope for teenagers to escape from their parents and vice versa. Here you can always find a place to relax and enjoy your surroundings.

Abbotsway Cottage is located up its own drive off the main Orroland drive and is set in its own grounds at the head of an unspoiled wooded valley. Your only neighbours are cattle and sheep enjoying the grazing in the fields opposite the cottage so you have the freedom to be yourselves without being overlooked or worrying about disturbing other people. There is always an excellent chance of seeing a wide range of wildlife and birds. The seashore is a lovely walk away - about 20 minutes - and you can drive part of the way.

This holiday cottage is particularly peaceful and private with an excellent games room making it a popular choice with families.

Cottage details

Abbotsway Cottage is a single storey stone-built cottage with its own out-buildings set around a fully enclosed courtyard which provides safe freedom for dogs and children. It's attractive garden has flower beds and lawns looking out over grass fields to woodland beyond. There is sturdy garden furniture and a BBQ.

You enter the cottage from the courtyard. A practical utility room serves as a laundry, dog room and cloakroom. Through here is the modern farmhouse-style kitchen with a table seating 8, generous food storage and, of course, a dishwasher. Next door is the spacious sitting room, with a large bay window ideal for watching wildlife and a wood burning stove for which we supply you with unlimited logs.

The bedrooms and bathrooms are in two separate wings, making the cottage particularly well suited to families holidaying with grandparents and children or where there are two couples holidaying together. On one side is a double bedroom (5ft bed) and single bedroom with bathroom next door. On the other side is a twin bedroom with two single beds, with shower room adjacent.

The games room is accessed via a separate entrance in the courtyard, with a pool table and table tennis providing hours of entertainment for all ages.

General information

The cottage prices include bed linen and towels, electricity, heating oil and logs for the wood burner. You are welcome to arrive from 4pm and we ask you to depart by 10am. Guests staying for two weeks receive a housekeeping visit mid-stay along with fresh bed linen and towels.

* We are fortunate to enjoy super-fast fibre to the premises broadband at Orroland with no restrictions on usage.

we enjoyed our stay in a lovely location in a very well equipped cottage. The wood burner was a added bonus as after a nice day sight seeing it was nice to put our feet up in front of a warm crackling fire and read a book or watch television. Our hosts thought of every thing and we received a warm welcome on arrival. I would definitely recommend it to others

Fantastic cottage with great facilities. Fiona was a perfect host and gave us plenty of information. Would definitely go back and stay again. One thing to be aware of. Small track to access the cottage off the main lane is a little bit tricky if your car sits lower to the ground.

The cottage is extremely comfortable and in a gorgeous position. Loved walking to the beach and spotting red squirrels and grouse from the sitting room. This was our second visit - highly recommend!

This was our second trip to Abbotsway cottage and didn't disappoint. This is the only place we've ever stayed, where it was so good, a second trip was a must. Orroland is a great place for walks, for scenery, for getting away from it all and for walking our dog, Indy. The place had been thoroughly cleaned and was Covid Secure - so there was nothing to worry about there, and we really enjoyed our week in this lovely part of Scotland. Am sure we'll be back again.

This was out second stay at Orroland and we were the first people to stay at Abbotsway Cottage since some of the COVID-19 restrictions were eased. The property was scrupulously clean and there were measures in place to reduce the risk to us and the support team as far as possible. A couple of slight technical glitches were addresses quickly and rectified. The cottage itself is spacious, comfortable and well equipped. The grounds are fabulous and there is plenty to explore. The games room was well used on the days when the weather was less than kind. This part of Scotland is quiet and offers a low key and relaxing break from the daily routine.
