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 has 3 bedrooms with six foot super-king beds (2 can be divided into twins), 2 bathrooms, patio garden and balconies, reclining garden chairs, smart TV and DVD service, Bluetooth speaker for iPod/iPad/Android devices, electric fireplace and underfloor heating, electric fans in each bedroom, a BBQ and PlayStation 4.
