Cutlar's Lodge is set in its own landscaped grounds in the heart of Orroland Estate which enjoys panoramic views over the Isle of Man and the Cumberland hills. It's nearest neighbouring property is about 3 minutes walk away. Cutlar's is just a stone's throw from the wild flower meadow and private loch with pavilion.
Many of our guests are couples who enjoy plenty of space and a special price for 2.
Cutlar's Lodge has 3 bedrooms, accommodating up to 6 people (1 double, 2 twins), within its unique and comfortable walls. A comfortable night's sleep is assured in top of the range Hypnos beds. There is a downstairs bedroom, next to the shared bathroom.
An open fire gives life to the sitting room with a kitchen modern yet in keeping with the traditional feel of the cottage. The kitchen window looks out over the wild flower meadow and a dishwasher ensures you will only spend a pleasant amount of time in this spot.
A separate dining room gives a feeling of space.
From the sun porch you'll be able to relax and enjoy views out over the Solway Firth down to the Lake District and Isle of Man. You are a stone's throw from the private loch with its quirky pavilion and it is about 15-minutes walk to the rocky seashore with expansive waters warmed by the Gulf Stream. There are rock pools to explore, waterfalls to discover and large flat rocks which make an excellent base for a picnic.
The cottage is set in its own fully enclosed garden with a barbecue and garden furniture. Do you have children? A simple games room with table tennis, pool table and TV/DVD, in addition to the enchanting grounds, awaits them.
We had a lovely, relaxed family holiday here. The cottage was lovely and clean on our arrival with tea and coffee supplied along with a freshly baked cake. The location is beautiful and very peaceful with a lovely walk to the sea where the kids can spend hours searching for shells and playing on the rocks.
A terrific location and especially enjoyable if you have dogs that love to run around. Beautiful cottage, well appointed and very helpful and friendly folks on hand to answer any questions and assist as required. Really pleased that we decided to return after so long and plan to go back again sooner next time.
If really looking to provide constructive feedback, we may suggest an outside tap and hose which we would have welcomed to clean the mucky paws of our dogs, and only having one toilet/bath/shower can be a challenge if there is a full house, but we managed perfectly well.
Great place, highly recommended!
Thoroughly enjoyed our weeks stay at Cutlers Lodge in Feb 2017
What a wonderful setting and a lovely homely cottage with everything you could want, could not have asked for more ( ok mid teen temps and solid sunshine would have been v nice...but hardly going to happen).
Made to feel very welcome and a lovely cake from Fiona was very much enjoyed.
We found Cutlers lodge to be very comfortable and what fantastic views to wake up to every day, along with wonderful walks and great photo opportunities.
We will certainly be booking again and very much looking forward to another stay with you, thanks guys.
We came across Orroland Holiday Cottages while searching for a dog friendly property with an enclosed, secure garden in a quiet location. We could not have been more pleased with what we found.
The property was warm and inviting, with an open fire and unlimited logs. In a very secure and spacious garden for the dogs to run around. The kitchen was extremely well equipped, with everything you would ever need.
The grounds were stunning. We hope to come back in each season to see the change in colours.
We enjoyed exploring the area, visiting the many beaches, historical sites and forests.
We would thoroughly recommend these cottages and the surrounding areas.
Thank you to Melinda, Fiona and the rest of the Orroland Team for such a warm welcome.
This is our third time at Cutlars Lodge and it never disappoints, just keeps getting better. The cottage is equipped with everything you need and attention to detail and cleanliness is second to none. It's a truly beautiful place and one you will want to return to.
We hired out the property for family to stay in for the week of our wedding at Orroland Lodge, however we have stayed at the property ourselves a number of times. Its perfect for couples of small families, and worked particularly well for the family who used it which included my elderly grandmother who could sleep downstairs, with the bathroom on ground level she didn't have to navigate the staircase at all. Its a fantastic place for those who enjoy nature and walking, or those who just want to sit outside/in front of the fire with a good book. Cutlars has fantastic views. Our family had stayed at Cutlars some time ago, and were extremely impressed with how it had been updated and modernised inside. Everyone loved the cake and found it perfectly clean.
Cutlar's Lodge is located a mile off the A711 between the villages of Auchencairn and Dundrennan.

About the Dumfries and Galloway region
Dumfries and Galloway is like a miniature version of Scotland, condensed down into one region. Not just a great range of activities (should you wish to be active) but lots of Scotland's best features in one place. A place where naturally beautiful countryside meets the sea, with truly scrumptious locally produced food and drink too.
Dumfries and Galloway is home to a stunning 200-miles stretch of coastline, representing the seaside in all its forms; with endless sandy beaches at Port Logan and Sandyhills, leisure-craft on the 'Solway Riviera' at Kippford and fishing boats unloading their catch of scallops in the busy harbour of Kirkcudbright. It's beautiful too – the breath-taking sunset over the Irish Sea seen from the safe haven of Portpatrick harbour epitomises the special atmosphere where this region touches the sea.
It's a common misconception that you have to head for the Highlands to find great Scottish hills, but here you won't be disappointed. Dumfries and Galloway hosts some of the country's very best for walkers of all abilities; from tackling the 212-mile Southern Upland Way or challenging ranges like the 'Awful Hand' to following in the footsteps of ancient cattle rustlers in the Devil's Beef Tub there's plenty to savour. With the birthplace of Christianity, ancient buildings like Caerlaverock Castle and the first home of the Scotsman who founded the American Navy, the south-west is also steeped in history. Dumfries is the heart of Robert Burns' country and Scotland's National Museum of Costume is housed in Shambellie House at nearby New Abbey. The village is also where Sweetheart Abbey stands – home to one of the most romantic stories of them all.
The region also hosts five of the 7Stanes mountain bike trails and 30 golf courses, both links and inland.
Dumfries and Galloway is also becoming very popular for foodies –with Savour the Flavours running two very successful food festivals at either end of the summer season in May and September. You can explore the local countryside, meet local artisan producers of all types of food and drinks and even learn to forage. That countryside is also home to fantastic wildlife – including the Galloway Wild Goat Park, RSPB reserves at Mersehead and Mull of Galloway and a chance to see Red Kites in the wild.
The nearest town to Orroland is Kirkcudbright – the Royal Burgh is Scotland's Artists' Town and comes alive in the summer with a tremendous programme of entertainment including a Jazz Festival, open-air Scottish Nights and a floodlit Tattoo (complete with massed pipe bands) in front of MacLellan's Castle.
As well as a haven for art and craft lovers, Kirkcudbright is also a place for family fun, with an indoor swimming pool run brilliantly by volunteers from the local community. At the Cocoa Bean chocolate factory kids can make chocolate creations in an interactive workshop and explore indoor and outdoor play areas.
