About & Contact

A two storey cottage with expansive sea views

Located on the naturally inspiring 500 acre, private Orroland estate, is Abbotsway Cottage. This stone built, single storey cottage is especially peaceful and private; the perfect retreat for nature lovers and adventure seekers alike.

Positioned off the main lane into Orroland estate, the lodge has its own private drive and your nearest neighbour, at Cutlar’s Lodge, is about 5 minutes’ walk away.

Well suited for multi-generational escapes, this cottage is all on one level with occasional steps. Abbotsway Cottage sleeps five people in a king-size bedroom, a single room and a twin room. There is a bathroom, with a shower over the bath, plus a second shower room.

You'll have all the space you need, with the three bedrooms located in two separate wings. Each bedroom comes with top of the range beds, so you can get some well-needed sleep after a day of exploring.

And while you’re sleeping, you can even charge your electric car as Abbotsway Cottage has its own Type 2 7KW EV Car Charger.

Fancy a games night? A private games room, complete with a pool table, table tennis table and smart TV is available for everyone to enjoy.

And if you’re in the mood for a snug movie night, you can relax in the sitting room, which features a smart TV, log burner and plenty of logs and kindling.

In the kitchen, a fresh, homemade cake will be laid out for you and you’ll have the freedom to cook up a feast in the spacious farmhouse kitchen, which includes a dishwasher.

With plenty of hot water and thermostatic control, you can enjoy a hot shower and set the heating to a comfortable temperature throughout your stay.

If you want to take the party outside, you will have access to sturdy outdoor table and chairs and a barbecue set amidst well-tended lawns and flower beds. The garden is not fully enclosed, instead there's a full enclosed courtyard with the games room off it, providing safe freedom for children and dogs.

Hike through nearby woodlands and spot local wildlife such as roe deer, red kites and red squirrels. With such an abundance of flora and fauna throughout the area, you’ll never tire of exploring. Should you not be feeling active you can spot the wildlife out of the bay window in the sitting room using the binoculars provided.

An ideal place to allow young ones to experience the true beauty of nature, they can explore, make dens, skim stones and climb trees, all within a safe environment. This is a perfect place to bring babies and children. At Abbotsway Cottage, you’ll find a cot, highchair, stair gates, fire guard, toys and books.

And for older children – well, you may struggle to get them to come back in from all the adventures the estate has to offer. Whether it’s rock pooling on the nearby shoreline, tree climbing in our beautiful grounds, or running through our wildflower meadow, they won’t be short of fun.

The shared spaces are for you to enjoy alongside the guests at Orroland’s other two holiday homes as well as the family who live there.

If mountain biking is your thing, then look no further. Southern Scotland is host to some of the best mountain biking in the UK and has plenty of trails nearby which are suitable for all ability levels. Check out the 7stanes, the world class mountain biking network, where you can enjoy some leisurely trails, or put your skills to the test with some challenging descents. The nearest biking locations are Dalbeattie (12 miles) or Mabie (22 miles), Kirroughtree (35 miles), Ae (38 miles) and Glentrool (45 miles).

And when you arrive back at the cottage, there is an outside tap which you can use to wash the bike down, before storing it under cover in your outbuilding.

Dog lovers? Orroland welcomes up to 3 dogs, so you can enjoy scenic walks with the whole family. The only issue may be persuading them back onto the lead!

Just a 20 minute walk away, you can access the private rocky seashore, with waterfalls, rockpools and expansive waters. Children and dogs can play all day without ever getting bored.

Do you have to do a bit of work while you’re away? Our super-fast fibre broadband with no limits is included in the rental cost of the property, making it easy for you to stay on top of those emails, while creating incredible memories with family and friends.

Located on its own private (and very quiet) road, Orroland estate has no public roads intersecting the private and shared spaces. Your nearest neighbour is a 5 minute walk away, so you really are in your own private paradise.

If you feel like you really want to get away from it all, take a stroll down to the sea for some quiet reflection time by the water’s edge. You can also take some time out in the pavilion next to Orroland Estate’s private loch and you'll find a comfy bench in the heart of the wildflower meadow.

Whichever type of escape you’re looking for, this stunning Scottish getaway will welcome you with a slice of homemade cake, a cosy open fire and the freedom to be yourself.

Reviews for Abbotsway Cottage at Orroland

Meet the owner

Melinda Kennedy

The Kennedy family has been at Orroland since 1973 when we arrived to find sheep grazing in the gardens and almost not a tree in sight. Over the Kennedy years, Orroland has undergone a complete transformation with a great deal of tree planting and landscaping, the digging of the loch, building of the pavilion and a continuous stream of other interesting projects and improvements which combine to create the character of this magical space. This is a three-generation enterprise (AKA passion!) and comes to you with our love.
