Meet the Owners
This is us - Jenny and Pete Monroe who look forward to welcoming you to Water's Edge Glenarm Bed and Breakfast
Protecting our Environment
When carrying out our renovation we were anxious to explore alternative energy solutions. We have harnessed solar energy thanks to www.planet-solar.co.uk who have done an excellent job for us - even in the depths of winter we have been generating enough power to reduce our carbon footprint.
In addition, we have added a mechanical ventilation and heat recovery (MVHR) system supplied by www.beamcentralsystems.com ensuring our home is energy efficient and providing you with fresh clean air in all rooms.
Underfloor heating to all areas provides toasty warm tiles underfoot in winter. Our tiled floors throughout help keep things cooler in summer.
Move forward to 2012 and the police station closed its doors to the public. We purchased the station in 2014 and commenced the process of stripping out the interior and removing security fences in readiness for our builders to give the building a new lease of life.
Superb Sea Views
All of our bedrooms are located to the front of the house and offer our guests fantastic views out to sea
Water's Edge has two ground floor and one first floor bedroom. The property has level access and one of the ground floor bedrooms comes with a level access 'wetroom'.
A guest car park is located at the rear of our property there is ample off road parking.
We can offer covered storage for your bicycle, motorcycle, or golfing equipment in our large garage
Built in 1929, this Thomas Rippingham Neo-Georgian station house was one of over thirty similarly designed and built in the 1920's and 1930's across Northern Ireland. This photograph circa 1960 shows Glenarm station resplendent without the security fences
You can enjoy a leisurely breakfast in our dining room or alternatively in our rear courtyard or front patio
Relax and Enjoy
We offer spacious living and dining areas for you to relax and enjoy the views
Peter and Jenny Monroe wanted to live on the Antrim Coast with good access to the Glens of Antrim and Causeway Coast Road and run and a bed and breakfast so they purchased this former police station in January 2014 and have overseen a major renovation that has transformed the accommodation into a family home and bespoke bed and breakfast. 'We live right on the shore line on the famous Causeway Coastal Route and our architects www.slemishdesignstudio.co.uk have given us everything we could have asked for and you will love the bright and airy rooms, the feeling of space and beautiful views from our home'
