Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Kirkcudbright - Cutlar's Lodge

Cutlar's Lodge - sleeps 6 guests in 3 bedrooms

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.

A wonderful late season break.

  • 5 of 5

We both thoroughly enjoyed our short 4 night break at Orroland as did Dylan our Yorkie.

The cottage was lovely and had everything we could need, including a splendid cake from Fiona!

Fiona was happy to welcome us despite our late arrival and point out the walks available in the lovely grounds and gave a useful insight in to the local area.

Being able to walk right down to the beach is a great bonus.

The holiday passed all too quickly but we hope to return before too long.

Many thanks.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review. So pleased you enjoyed the cake. It was a pleasure to welcome you and have a lovely chat about the local area and also to learn about the area where you live too, very interesting. I’m sure Dylan slept well after your walks to the shore; in front of the lovely log fire no doubt! Fiona and Bob

Fabulous property in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding property with unique features in the surroundings.

Lovely walks from the door and totally dog friendly with a properly secured spacious garden.

History of the area, estate and property make it even more interesting.

A walk down to the beach is a must, so peaceful and relaxing.

Owner's Response: Chris, thank you for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed the quirky landscaping features just a stone's throw from the door and that you appreciated the potted history of Orroland that we share in the cottage. We are careful to provide a genuinely secure garden to provide safe freedom for dogs. It's lovely that you made the most of the walks at Orroland, including to the characterful shore 15 minutes walk away.

Orroland Cutlars Lodge

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5, including 3 teens (plus dog) stayed in August. We really enjoyed our stay and made great use of the pool table. Orroland is lovely and we enjoyed our walks down to the pebbly beach with loads of interesting things on the strandline and in the rock pools. Delicious cake on arrival, thanks Fiona! The only minor thing, which we knew beforehand, is that you do need to use the car to go anywhere - except for an Abbey and café (which was excellent), about 1/2hrs walk away. All in all though we had a great time and would stay again if in the area.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. With three teens to entertain I’m sure a pool tournament was great fun for you all. Rock pooling is always an adventure on our shore for all members of the family. Glad you enjoyed the sticky golden syrup cake when you arrived. Fiona and Bob

My summer in Scotland

  • 5 of 5

Six of us had the most wonderful time at Cutlar's Lodge for 11 days! Most evenings we had a cozy fire going reading, talking or watching a movie! And the days were idllyic driving to various beaches, getting our feet wet, even swimming one day, and visiting quaint villages, talking to natives, hiking! And just walking around Orrolands' gardens was a treat! So we are very thankful to the Kennedys for providing such a beautiful place for us! Judy

A delightful well maintained cottage in peaceful and tranquil surroundings with lots to see and do for the whole family and dogs.

We spent a week in Cutlers' lodge and although weather wasn't too good we still really enjoyed our stay as the cottage and surrounding area provided free entertainment, wonderful !!

Owner's Response: What a great adventure for all ages; exploring all of Orroland and picnicing in the beach hut on the shore. We're glad the younger members of your party enjoyed the toy cupboard in the cottage to the full; a well stocked toy cupboard = happy children = relaxed adults! Your comments in the visitor book are very useful for future guests. Best wishes Fiona and Bob

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.

Kirkcudbright

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.
