Enjoy the spacious, elegant and comfortable accommodation in this former shooting lodge. Relax on the sheltered, sunny terrace and feast your eyes on the views across the Solway Firth to the Cumbrian mountains. 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.
This large century-old lodge is a comfortable, practical choice for parties of up to 14 people:
7 bedrooms: 5 twins and 2 doubles with en-suites. One can be adapted into a sixth twin room.
Total of 3 bathrooms and 3 shower rooms.

All the cooking and serving equipment needed for a party of 30 guests is provided. There is a separate bar with drinks fridge and a practical pantry for food storage with American-style fridge/freezer.
The large drawing room has an atmospheric open fire and the space for 14 to comfortably enjoy it.
A pool table provides good indoor sport.
The estate features the very best of its surroundings and includes a private loch with picnic pavilion, a private rocky shoreline with summerhouse for parties, unique landscaped gardens, grand wooded walks and unspoilt grassy fields.
Enjoy the blissful peace and quiet, panoramic sea views and the company of the local wildlife. The house is down its own half-mile long drive so has no immediate neighbours.
With the amount of space on offer and the attention to detail on all the practicalities, Orroland Lodge is an ideal choice for groups of families holidaying together, wedding receptions, family reunions and celebrations.
Orroland estate has two other cottages sleeping 6 and 7 people which can also be rented. The nearest to Orroland Lodge is around 10-mins walk.
We hired our Orroland Lodge and the cottages for a week to take our whole family away for our wedding. We know Orroland very well but had never stayed at the lodge. Alice and Melinda were a huge help in enabling us to make our dream wedding using the lodge. The lodge made a great place to stay with our family and has beautiful views, everyone had enough space and privacy and there was plenty of places to explore and get away from the wedding pressures! Unfortunately the rain poured on the day of our lovely summer wedding, but the location was so beautiful it didn't matter. Everyone experienced the magic we loved about Orroland and it was everything we wanted (except dry!). The day after our wedding we watched porpoises on the beach with our family and friends.
Orroland was the perfect location for our wedding set on private grounds with an enchanting old styled house with large rooms and ample bathrooms to meet the needs of our large families. We had the perfect small informal wedding there. We where made very welcome by Alice and the fact that our dogs where welcome too was perfect. I highly recommend Orroland for large families wanting to spend time together with or without an occasion to celebrate. We also hired Cutlar Lodge which was also well equipped, more modern and perfect for smaller groups.
This was a family holiday catering for 10 adults and four children aged 2yrs to 10 yrs. The house met our needs and beyond with large comfortable public rooms, many bedrooms, generous kitchen and amazing dining space. All services were clearly explained and when the washing machine died a new one was supplied the following morning. We were met shortly after arrival and again before we left. The house was well heated and set in gloriously beautiful grounds with a cliff top location and access to the rocky shore.
I found some of the lounge chairs too low and a bit worn but all else was fine.
We stayed with 14 Members of our Family and two dogs. children aged from 8-18 and without exception everyone loved Orroland Lodge. there was so much for the kids to do in a safe environment by themselves they really had a fantastic time. Woods, Waterfalls, a Pond a beach kids heaven. the Lodge has a homely feel whilst allowing everyone their space. We also had the luxury of very warm sunny days ,I will definitely be returning for another holiday.
As usual we all had a fantastic time! It is a great place for all three generations of our family to relax and have fun. The beach house , the loch and grounds. The rocky beach for crabbing and the pool table for our annual tournament, together with 'archery', cricket or rounders, badminton and board games, quizzes and cards. A great place to make your own entertainment. Oh! and we also have a few fitness fanatics who run and/or skip and do the 'insanity' fitness programmes. Everyone doing their own thing but coming together for lunch and the evening meal.

We always find it difficult to find somewhere suitable for our annual family holiday with 7 adults, 5 children and a dog, and we were very pleased to discover Orroland, which ticked just about all the boxes - plenty of space, the right number of rooms, very well equipped and a location and sea views to kill for. The beach hut was a great bonus and the ideal location for the eldest granddaughter's 11th birthday BBQ.
The grounds around the house were perfect for exploring and games of cricket, and we were all delighted to see the red squirrels feeding; I just wish they had appeared more often! We found plenty to suit everybody in the surrounding area, ranging from water skiing to the daily red kite feeding at Bellymack farm (don't miss it!) to visiting ruined abbeys and castles to lazy days on nearby sandy beaches.
The only criticisms would be of the often unusably slow Internet connection and that the decoration in some parts of the house is looking a bit tired. However, these are far outweighed by the pluses and the support that the Kennedy family provided and we would be happy to stay there again.
