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!
