Located on the peaceful, 500 acre, private Orroland estate, Cutlar’s Lodge is a traditional stone built, spacious, two-storey, detached cottage. Its nearest neighbouring property is about 5 minutes’ walk away.
Step inside and you will find a fresh, home-made cake waiting for you on the kitchen table.
The kitchen itself is well equipped with everything you could need for your stay, including an induction hob, microwave, oven, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer.
A separate dining room offers you the space to relax over dinner, with seating for six.
Whilst the sitting room offers a cosy welcome, with its roaring cast iron open fire and plentiful log supply.
A sun porch is the perfect location for a morning coffee, with views out across the wildflower meadow and fields, right down to the sea.
Head upstairs to the first floor and you will find a twin room and a king size bedroom, both with a hand basin.
Multigenerational breaks are well catered for at Cutlar’s Lodge, with a downstairs bedroom, located right next to the shared bathroom, which features a bath with a shower over.
A comfortable night's sleep is assured in our top of the range beds. Bedding, pure cotton linen, big fluffy towels, shampoo and a hairdryer are all provided.
There is always plenty of hot water on hand and if there is a chill in the air, we will already have put the heating on, in anticipation of your arrival. You have thermostatic control throughout your stay.
Your own private games room can be found in the basement of Cutlar’s Lodge. Here you will find table football, alongside a pool table.
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.
Step outside of the cottage into your own private and enclosed garden, complete with a barbecue (and charcoal) and garden furniture.
You are just a stone's throw from the wild flower meadow and private loch, complete with its own pavilion.
The seashore is a 15 minute walk from the house, where you will find plentiful rock pools to explore, waterfalls and large flat rocks (perfect for a picnic).
Babies and children are warmly welcomed at Cutlar’s Lodge. For the little ones, we provide a cot and high chair (please bring your own cot bedding) as well as stair gates, fire guard, cutlery and crockery. You will even find some toys, games and books.
Older children will love the freedom to get out and explore the estate.
A dog walker’s paradise, Cutlar’s Lodge welcomes up to three dogs at £25 each. As dog owners ourselves, we know first-hand the importance of being able to holiday with the whole family – four legged friends included!
And with abundant private trails for you and your dogs to explore, there is so much space right on your doorstep.
Electric car owners will be reassured to find that Cutlar’s Lodge offers its own Type 2 7KW EV Car Charger, meaning you can head out for the day, safe in the knowledge that you have a full battery, which you can recharge as soon as you arrive home. There is no additional charge.
The wildflower meadow, loch with pavilion, walks and access to the sea shore are shared spaces for guests of three holiday homes and our own family, resident at Orroland.
Orroland estate has its own private (and very quiet) road. There are no public roads intersecting the private and shared spaces.
If you prefer a little more solitude, why not head down to our shared wooden beach hut overlooking the sea, for some quiet reflection by the water’s edge?
Perfect for children and small babies, Orroland is one of those rare and magical holiday locations where the kids really can safely ride their bikes all day, climb trees, make dens or look for tadpoles in their own loch. Only coming back in for dinner and bed.
A nature lover’s dream, Orroland is home to roe deer, red kites and red squirrels. The site is brimming with flora and fauna, offering year round interest for all nature lovers.
