Rhododendrons, wildflowers, azaleas, hawthorns and trees in full bloom; the gardens at Orroland are immaculately kept and beautifully presented.
As you wander through the grounds, you’ll happen across a fairytale land filled with unicorns, hares, princess towers and hideaways for fairies.
There are also ponds and pavilions where you can sit and take in your surroundings, listening to the birds singing in the trees.
Orroland’s vast and varied grounds offer the perfect setting for experiencing everything nature has to offer.
Or book our local wild foods expert, grab a basket and go foraging in the grounds. Through the wildflower meadows and ancient woodlands, you’ll find wild garlic, bittercress, sea radishes, sea kale, edible flowers and elderberries.Book Your Stay
Just a stone’s throw from the wildflower meadow you’ll find a landscaped loch where a fairytale tower meets with clear waters. A pavilion sits at the water’s edge, with parking nearby, making an ideal picnic venue.
This serene parkland space changes with the seasons, with abundant colour from specimen trees and shrubs, rhododendrons, and wild flowers. Here you can potter along mown paths and read your book on a bench overlooking the landscaped pond. You may even love it as much as the roe deer do.
Foraging at Orroland would add something really extra-special and unique to your stay and we highly recommend a guided forage as part of your holiday. We asked Mark to help us enthuse you about the wild foods in Orroland’s natural store. Orroland offers an amazing range of tasty plants and fungi to both novice and improving foragers alike. Its wide diversity of habitats means there is lots to enjoy all year round. Being on the coast, the woods, hedgerows and meadows of Orroland enjoy the warming effects of the sea, allowing for more variety, longer seasons and bumper crops.
