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 the family room sleeping three people in 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.

Great cottage, very well equipped etc. The beauty is the location. Such peace and tranquilly, with a gorgeous walk down to a deserted sea shore. Fauna and flora in abundance. A restorative experience.

Beautiful cottage and location, abbotsford had ample room and was gorgeous inside especially the window seat in the living room where we could see wildlife including deer. We loved the gardens and the large courtyard at the back was fab for sun bathing and it meant the dog was secure too. Inside the cottage was so comfortable and clean - we have booked numerous holiday cottages over the years but this is undoubtedly one of our favourites, highly recommended.

The cottages and also the estate are beautiful! The cottage is very cosy and nicely decorated. The garden is very wel maintained and full of flowers. It is als very peacefull and quiet. The Orroland estate is very beautiful, with sculpturen, flowers, ponds and a garden and gardenhouse at the beach. The owners and staf are real friendly and welcoming. There is a lot of wildlife as well, we saw a fox, deer, rabbits and pheasants.

We thought this a very comfortable, tastefully furnished and well equipped cottage in a very peaceful location. It was great to have the freedom to explore the beautiful grounds of the estate-this made for lovely evening walks after days out.

We spent a wonderful 2 weeks in Abbotsway Cottage. The house is comfortable, well equipped and spacious. The property has a lovely beachfront with a summer house, and lots of flowers and animal life, including deer. It’s an easy drive to coastal walks, castles and towns.
