Direct balcony views over the quarry lake which is home to Capernwray scuba diving centre. The setting is described poetically by one guest as: "Jackdaws flying past all day long, sparrowhawks feeding their young on the quarry face opposite, the occasional fox strolling along the quarry top at dusk, shoals of trout swimming past (throw in a few pieces of bread and see the water boil with fish) .....Lovely bedrooms and bathrooms, lakeside balconies (perfect for outdoor breakfasts, barbecues or an early evening drink)".

Jackdaw Quarry Lodge is spread over two floor with 2 bedroooms on the ground floor and one on the top floor. The bedrooms come with six foot super-king beds (2 can be divided into twins) and there are 2 bathrooms - both with showers and one with a bathtub.
