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.

“ Idyllic location.”
Cutlers lodge is situated in an idyllic location and is kept to a very high standard in both facilities and cleanliness. It should be noted though there is no W/C upstairs in this property and the kitchen is lacking work surface for the capacity of this property. Thank you Fiona for the lovely Lemon drizzle cake and leaving tea and milk, much appreciated after a long drive. Having stayed at both Abbotsway cottage and Cutlers Lodge I would recommend Abbotsway in favour of Cutlers. Although Cutlers Lodge on first impressions is in a better position, because it is next to the formal gardens we were disturbed by the grass cutting for a couple of days (there is a lot of grass to cut and ride on mowers are not the quietist of machines!). The road next to Cutlers lodge would appear to be safe but unfortunately at times this was not so. Possibly guests using Orroland Lodge do not expect anybody else to be in the vicinity and a few (not all) would drive at a speed not conducive to the safety of pedestrians or dogs off the lead! The owners of Orroland estate cannot be blamed for the conduct of others but possibly a couple of speed bumps may slow the errant guest down! Would I recommend this property,? a definite yes even with the observations above.
“Another superb stay at Cutler's Lodge at Orroland Holiday Cottages”
We love coming to Orroland and this was our 5th stay , third time in Cultler's Lodge. The weather was glorious all week. The cottage was cosy, clean, had everything we needed and the grounds were superb and stunning as always. Our two westies love exploring the grounds and it can easily take up a few days just doing that. Fiona looked after us so well as always, hubby loved the lemon drizzle cake and knowing she is at hand if we need anything is always an added bonus. The cottage and grounds are so peaceful and there are many beautiful places to visit nearby too as well, lots of castles, sandy beaches, gift shops and cafe's and a lot of the places are dog friendly. Would highly recommend this lovely cottage to stay (and the other cottages there too). It is very unique as you feel you are there on the grounds on your own as it's that big you rarely see the other people staying but do know someone is at hand if you need them. Not stayed anywhere else as nice and look forward to going back again next year.
