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.

We had a wonderful holiday at Orroland Lodge during late October. The location is a little remote for shops and restaurants, however that was part of the charm. Kirkcudbright was only 15 minutes drive and is a lovely busy town. Great location for Golf, fishing and general outdoor living. The property is huge and gave our party of 12 plenty of personal and communal space. The living room and Dining room are wonderful for parties and family gatherings. The grounds are fantastic, with lots of space to explore and kids to play. We would highly recommend this property and cannot wait to return.

The accommodation was perfect for our large family get together. The pool table was well used for family tournaments. The location was private and central for our trips. The house was very well equipped and the bedrooms very comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Orroland.

This was not my first visit to Orroland, so I was absolutely sure this was the best place to celebrate with friends and family - 10 humans in total and 4 dogs. Orroland is a great place to both chill out and explore the Dumfries area. The feel of the house is so homely, which creates a great atmosphere. Everyone just mucking in, creating fabulous meals in the kitchen, dining in such a lovely room, and chilling around the open fire is just perfect. If you need a bit of quiet time to yourself, that's easy, as the walls are so thick, you can soon find a quiet corner! The house is very well kitted out, from kitchen equipment to books to read. Even the first storm of the year hit us! We expected, and had a power cut, which was no problem as the generator kicked in. To watch the wild sea, and the trees bending in the wind was quite something! Orroland is truly a magical place; I know we will return in the future - yet again.

Orroland was wonderful! We found it to be a perfect place for a writers/artists retreat. The nearby abbey is lovely as well. If you go, just know that the nearby Tesco in Kirckudbright is only open until 6:00 PM on Sundays.

“For the second year running we booked all three properties at Orroland for the annual family re-union. Our gathering had diverse backgrounds and ages between 2 and 78 and yet all thoroughly enjoyed the week with the beach hut and spacious grounds providing a variety of entertainment to old and young alike. Once again the properties were clean, comfortable, comprehensively equipped, prepared to a high standard and had that "difficult to achieve" feeling that it was your family home for the duration of stay. A number of our party commented that it would be nice to have more showers available and ultra violet fly zappers would be a valuable addition to the kitchens; sadly the wi-fi was still very slow and coverage was poor. However, add the child friendly and beautiful surrounds and easy access to some of the best of Galloway and it is hardly surprising that we intended going back next year - sadly someone beat us to to our preferred dates but there is always 2020!.”
