Around Cutlar's Lodge
The private drive winds down the hill with mown verges, woodland and farm fields. Beyond, you notice the sea with its impossibly high horizon as the view over to the Lakeland hills and the Isle of Man opens up to be nothing short of breathtaking. Past a little waterfall, then you follow the unicorn's nose and suddenly on your left here's your pretty cottage with dormer windows like friendly eyes welcoming you. Here the view opens out to reveal the wild flower meadow with its ornamental pond and a glimpse of what looks like Rapunzel's tower between trees beyond. These views are yours when you stay at Cutlar's Lodge.
This holiday cottage has great character and its own unique cosiness. Right at the heart of Orroland's landscaped grounds it is ideal for exploring Orroland itself as well as the naturally inspiring region of Dumfries and Galloway.
Cutlar's Lodge is a two storey detached stone-built cottage. It is set in its own attractive garden, which is fully enclosed providing safe freedom for children and dogs. There is sturdy garden furniture and a BBQ so you can enjoy the garden and views to the full.
The cottage accommodates 6 people in three bedrooms. Downstairs you will find a modern well-equipped kitchen with dishwasher, tall upright fridge/freezer, table & chairs and door to the garden. The kitchen leads through to the dining room, sun porch and sitting room with comfortable sofa and armchairs, open fire - with unlimited logs supplied - and TV/DVD. There is a little laundry room with a washer/dryer and sink. On the other side of the kitchen is the bathroom with shower over bath, WC and basin and adjacent twin bedroom.

“Fantastic stay at Orroland”
We had a fantastic stay at Cutlars Lodge with two young children and our dog. The cottage was extremely well equipped, the beds comfy and the house was nice and warm. The setting is spectacular, we loved climbing the little hill, visiting the loch and wondering down to the rocky sea shore. The walks suggested from the lodge were manageable for a 3 year old and had some lovely views. We look forward to returning in the near future!
“Cutlar's Lodge a beautiful place”
“Another excellent stay at cutlets lodge ”
This was our 8th time stopping at Orroland and was as lovely as ever . The grounds and cottages are spotless. Fiona and Melinda always helpful . So dog friendly and peaceful . Already booked for next year and highly recommend. Very unique having its own grounds and rocky beach . Our favourite destination in UK
We were supposed to have stayed in August 2020 but Covid restrictions put paid to that. We were very pleased that we decided to roll the booking forward to 2021, as the beautiful and peaceful location was just what we needed after a year that has been difficult for everyone. We loved the cottage, which had everything we needed although we were disappointed that there was no cake in the welcome hamper!) The location was beautiful and tranquil and we had wildlife literally on our doorstep. We made the most of the glorious weather and either went on excursions or explored the immediate area every day. The village store in nearby Auchencairn does superb takeaways if you don't want to cook. The games room is a brilliant addition to keep children amused.
