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.

* We are fortunate to enjoy super-fast fibre to the premises broadband at Orroland with no restrictions on usage.
Wonderful relaxing week where we could really relax and get away from it all. You can almost forget Covid...although cleaning to extremely high standard and no concerns from this side of thing. Got lost on way to beach on first day but ended up seeing deer and red squirrels so it was still worthwhile! Shame the boat wasnt on the lake as we would have enjoyed this. Would definitely recommend if you need a break from everything. Lots of wildlife. Amazing views of stars if its not cloudy!
“5 Day Stay”
“Another superb stay at Cutler's Lodge at Orroland Holiday Cottages”
Another amazing stay at Cutler's Lodge and even more needed in this pandemic. Cottage and grounds were spotless as always and Fiona made us feel very welcome. Our favorite place to go with our two little Westies. Highly recommend to anyone. This place is so unique, so quiet, so beautiful in every way. We go most years now. Lovely beach walks and forest walks nearby as well.
“8 days at orroland”
“Comfortable accommodation in a stunning & beautifully quiet location, with amazing customer service.”
We have just thoroughly enjoyed a week in Cutlar's Lodge. The house was perfect for us and the location is stunning. We couldn't believe the beautiful grounds right on our doorstep and made very good use of them. Lots of walks down to the beach, making fires and toasting marshmallows in The Pavilion, and so many trips to the top of the snail mound. The gardens are gorgeous - the perfect place to relax without any social distancing worries. Fiona was so welcoming and helpful- a huge thanks to her for helping to make our stay such a success. We hope to return !
