Three properties set in the heart of Orroland Estate, which enjoys panoramic views over the Isle of Man and the Cumberland hills. Each is set in its own landscaped grounds around a 5-minute walk from any other property. They share a wild flower meadow and private loch and a choice of paths wind down to the rocky sea shore with rock pools to explore and waterfalls to discover. Open fires are a treat after a day of exploration. Children and dogs are welcome. Large parties can accommodate 14 people in Orroland Lodge and many of our guests are couples who enjoy plenty of space and a special price for 2 in the two cottages. A holiday at Orroland is good for the soul, peaceful and private with a touch of Famous Five adventure!
Just returned from a week away in Abbotsway Cottage, one of the three properties at Orroland. Cottage was wonderful - Fiona gave us a warm welcome (and a lovely cake) and the property was clean and modern, whilst retaining character. The location was so peaceful. Pheasants, bunnies and a variety of birds were seen just outside the property, together with a field full of cows just across the path. Quite amusing to see them all staring at you together! Cottage itself was warm and cosy, with a secure courtyard, so we knew our dog was safe, and a private games room with pool table and table tennis...more
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.
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.
