Due to the age of Glenmore, the cottage is full of character and quirky features.

There is a double sofa bed in the second living room on the ground floor for those who find the stairs too steep or the bedroom ceilings too low.
If you're looking to stay in a cottage that's full of charm and character then youo can't go far wrong at Glenmore. Dating back to 1613 and thought to be the first house built in Mawbray, Glenmore has walls built from cobbles and stones, and amazing original beams. Part of the charm of the cottage is that the ceilings and walls aren't all straight, some of the ceilings and doorways are lower than usual and the stairs up to the first floor are steep. Any tall members of the party will need to watch their head, especially in the bedrooms with their low beams.
Head though the door and you're into the inviting entrance hall. On your left you'll find the fabulous family bathroom, recently renovated but still within keeping of the cottage's period style. As well as the WC and wasbasin, there's a separate shower cubicle and feature free-standing bath. Reinvigorate tired muscles in the shower or indulge in a long soak in the bath, all tastes are catered for here. As a real treat, the owners have thoughfully provided individual start packs of complimentary toiletries. Across the hallway from the bathroom is the kitchen, well equipped with all the modern conveniences and comforts you'll need for a self catering holiday. There's a range-style cooked that the chefs in the group are sure to love! In the kitchen you'll also find a fridge-freezer, handy microwave, useful dishwasher - no need to fight over who has to do the washing up here! - and a useful washing machine.
Continue through into the main living room. Your eye will be immediately drawn the to the multi-fuel stove, sitting proudly in the cottage's original fireplace - just perfect for cosy evenings in. By one of the windows is the dining table and 4 chairs, ideal for sociable mealtimes. For entertainments there's a Freeview TV. Glenmore is deceptively spacious and a second living room can be found by the front door. It's a bright, peaceful room to escape to with a good book. This living room does contain a double sofa bed for those who'd prefer to sleep on the ground floor if they find the stairs too steep.
Onwards and upwards to the first floor (please be aware that the stairs in the cottage are steep due to the age of the property, there is a bannister on one side of the stairs) and the 2 unique bedrooms. The doorways into the bedrooms are lower than usual so please be careful to mind your heads as you head inside. The double bedroom has amazing feature beams, alomst reminscent of being on a ship - apt for a cottage so close to the coast! There's a built-in cupboard and chest of drawers for storage, as well as a cute dressing table. The twin room is just as characterful with its own original beams, again there's a handy wardrobe and chest of drawers for storage.
As well as parking for 2 cars on the driveway, outside Glenmore has a pleasant garden. With lawn areas, pretty apple trees and outdoor seating, it's a lovely spot for al fresco dining. The Solway Coast is renowned for its magnificent sunsets and clear skies, so why not make a hot chococlate and enjoy an evening sitting out under the stars? Guests at Glenmore will also have access to the owner's garage where you can store bikes, canoes and other outdoor equipments, should wish to explore with pedal - or paddle! - power. One lucky dog is also welcome at Glenmore; a doggy welcome pack including useful dog towels is even provided (these will be kept in the outside cupboard) and there's a tap outside for washing off muddy paws before going inside where your dog will undoubtedly curl up in front of the wood burner.
