Why Orroland Lodge?

Leaving the main drive you swing right onto Orroland Lodge's private drive and wind through mixed woodland, following a burbling stream with wild ferns, flowers and farm fields beyond. Here sleek cattle enjoy the succulent grass with enviable views of the sea. Rumble over your cattle grid and past the head of one of the paths leading to the shore. There's still no sign of Orroland Lodge until the road sweeps round to the left and the Lodge emerges from the sheltering trees in all its glory.

You have arrived at a holiday house that is large and impressive in appearance, offering accommodation that is very easy to live in. Listen for the ethereal sound of the sea in harmony with the birdsong; sounds that are totally unobtrusive and good for the soul.

Enjoy the spacious, elegant and comfortable accommodation in this former shooting lodge. You can relax on the sheltered, sunny terrace and feast your eyes on the views across the Solway Firth to the Cumbrian mountains. All along the front of the house the rooms have uninterrupted sea views (there's no such thing as a bad view at Orroland Lodge). You are a stone's throw from the steep wooded slope leading down to the private rocky shoreline, where you will find driftwood to collect and rock pools and caves to discover. The large flat rocks are ideal for barbecues, picnics and sunbathing.

Property details

Crunch your way across the gravel to the main door that leads into a long hall from which all the rooms are reached. Opposite you is the spacious drawing room with open fire, large bow window and verandah door leading to the garden and terrace. High ceilings and a fine chandelier made by the owner, William Kennedy complete the feeling of elegance.

To one side is the spacious kitchen and the practical spaces of the house like the pantry, larder, utility room and boot room with door to outside. Also a bathroom and a shower room, both with WC. Through the light, airy kitchen is the dining room with configurable tables enabling the space to be adapted to suit your party. There is a pool table (which can be used as a sideboard if you prefer) and a door to the garden and terrace. Larger parties will be glad to find that the room can comfortably seat 30 guests with plenty of elbow room.

To the other side of the drawing room there are three bedrooms on the ground floor. One of these is the large master bedroom with king bed (5ft) and en-suite bathroom. A shared bathroom serves the other two bedrooms, which are twins.

There are two staircases at opposite ends of the house, each leading to a pair of bedrooms with a shared shower room. Three of these rooms are twins; the fourth can be set up as twins or a super-king (6ft).

This large century-old lodge is continuously being improved, always reaching new, even higher standards of comfort and convenience. The elegant drawing room with open fire, spacious panelled dining room and well-equipped kitchen all add to Orroland Lodge’s attraction as an exceptional location for a holiday or gathering for groups of friends, special occasions, wedding receptions, family reunions and parties.

What a fabulous holiday! The house is out of this world, so well equipped it has everything you would ever need. The location and scenery are breathtaking.

OK it poured with rain all week so we couldn't do many of the things we had planned but the house made up for it, we could be together in groups or even go away and hide if we felt like being solitary. We all found our way there with no difficulty [the ASDA delivery driver didn't so Tesco might be a better idea]. The house was warm and comfortable The kitchen well equipped the chairs and sofas were comfortable the super long length baths were a delight. All in all a great place for a family holiday There were 11 of us - from Moray; Aberdeenshire; Edinburgh; Yorkshire. 8 adults and 3 children plus one dog

Had a wonderful holiday. Our second stay. Plenty space in the Lodge for our family (fourteen people, a baby and dogs) to spend time in comfort. Would go again.

Fabulously well equipt, cosy lodge, full of character, in a stunning, secluded location. Family ages ranged from 4yrs to 86yrs and lodge suited all. Pool table great success and TV never on. Very comfy beds. Such a relaxing place, quite unique. Used one of the recommended caterers, excellent . Owners were so friendly and helpful and popped down on our arrival which was a nice touch. We have already booked a stay in 2022.

Such a wonderful place to meet up with family and an absolutely perfect location to take the dogs along too. So many walks, the freedom to build rope swings and build bonfires on the beach. The owners are lovely and kept in touch with any questions we had throughout our stay and the pool table was a welcome bonus in the evenings. If I could change one thing it would be the beach hut. Boards on the front deck are a bit dangerous and an opportunity missed to put in some comfy chairs, a rug, lighting and some bunting to make this place a fantastic reading nook overlooking the sea :) But it was all lovely regardless. Thank you!

Orroland was the perfect place for a 3 generational holiday, very comfortable and spacious. We could spread out all over the house and the garden, plus the sea shore. No worries about being noisy or upsetting the neighbours. The beds were very comfortable and the 5 bath/shower rooms made all the difference, not to mention the 2 dishwashers, fridges, freezer and the ButlerÂ’s Pantry, plus the sturdy 4 oven Aga. We appreciated the ownersÂ’ willingness to accept advance deliveries and the customer service The setting and views over the Solway far exceeded our expectations. We loved the grounds, the quirky landscaping, the beach hut and the Pavilion. The youngsters hardly watched TV, preferring to play outside or on the pool table. A great time had by all.
