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.
Upstairs you will find a double bedroom (5ft bed) and TV/DVD and a twin bedroom, both with wash hand basins.
The simple games room is accessed via a separate entrance and houses a pool table and table football with TV/DVD.
Cutlar's Lodge has ample off-road parking and a garage suitable for one car.
The cottage prices include bed linen and towels, electricity, heating oil and logs for the open fire. You are welcome to arrive from 4pm and we ask you to depart by 10am. A landline phone keeps you in touch with family and friends whilst away, if you choose to share the number.

“Autumn family break at Cutlar's Lodge”
A great spot and very family friendly. Fiona was super helpful and on hand for any queries (the teddies for the kids were a lovely touch). A very cosy lodge, with unlimited wood for the fire. Games room with snooker table, table football and TV under the house was great for kids - including a well stocked toy supply and board games for all the family in the lodge. Walk to the beach (a bit steep in places for awareness) was also great fun and sun was out allowing us to sit on the balcony of the beach hut to take in the view (despite being October!). It's a great spot for walking and cycling too. Near to Kirkcudbright and trips to Cream O'Galloway, Cocoa Bean Factory and the zip wire at Laggan Outoor Centre made for a great week. Many thanks. Hope to come back again soon!
“Best holiday ever!!”
We travel abroad a lot due to work and have stayed in some fantastic places. However, our stay at Orroland was absolutely amazing. The house was clean and well equipped with everything you could possibly need. We took our labradoodle to the beach at Rockcliffe, we got engaged while we were there too. We enjoyed our stay so much we have already booked to stay next year and we are thinking of Orroland as a possible wedding venue. Fiona and Bob were very helpful and when I left my jacket behind, Fiona very kindly posted it back the next day. I really cant explain it but Orroland is such a special place and I wouldnt hesitate to recommend it if you want to get away from it all . You really cant beat laying in bed and listening to owls at night.
“Cutlers lodge orroland”
We're serial returners who've previously only stayed here in the winter. Orroland is the perfect place to totally get away from it all, at any time of year. It's hard to find this level of privacy in such idyllic surroundings. We're always given a very warm and personal welcome, though never intruded on. Cutlar's Lodge itself is a lovely building, and very comfortable. We always feel thoroughly at home in it.
