Boasting amazing views of the Yorkshire Dales, the Lakeland Fells and the spectacular sunsets over Morecambe Bay, Jackdaw Quarry Lodge is one of a handful of stunning eco lodges set on a hillside above the clear, blue water of Jackdaw Quarry, near Carnforth, Lancashire. Jackdaw Quarry is also home to the UK's premier scuba diving centre and PADI dive school. Guests have the opportunity, should they so wish, to sample scuba diving for the first time or further develop their existing skills (visit the Dive Site for more details). Scuba diving aside, there is so much to enjoy at Jackdaw Quarry 'above the water'! The local area is perfect for cycling and there are many delightful walks available from the door. Jackdaw Quarry's excellent location means easy access to the Lakes and Dales (e.g. Windermere is just 30 minutes drive away).
The accommodation at Jackdaw Quarry Lodges is simply stunning. Built to the highest standards, the property is clad in local stone and features a turf roof sown with wild flowers! Stylish and contemporary, the interior has been well thought out and beautifully dressed. Equally impressive are the list of standard features, which include discreet lighting, under floor heating throughout, a central vacuum system and satellite TV and DVD players in every bedroom! Each lodge has three good bedrooms, with one on ground floor level for ease of access, if required. The property has two glass fronted and covered balconies looking over the water, with a gas barbecue provided on the main balcony. Guests can enjoy an al fresco BBQ meal on the deck whilst gazing down on the divers below!
The lodge has it all beautifully furnished rooms well equipped kitchen and views that take your breath away.We had a great time and covered a few miles with the lovely canal walks. The only thing wrong with our stay has to be only booking the lodge for 4 night wished it had been longer. So I have sorted that problem will be returning in December for 7 nights.
The lodge was immaculate and the owners where extremely helpful and more than happy to assist if required.
Not your average eco lodge that abound in this area. Wow! This was a luxurious, spacious warm home that catered for a four generation family get together perfectly. Unexpected mobility aids for Great Grandad, play station and games for kids, huge Smart TV with BT sports for 'big kids'. Large very comfortable beds - all 3 bedrooms with own TV and luxury bathroom. Too tempting to have a long shower! Picnic rug, flask & cold box - Graeme & Allison's attention to detail meant we wanted for nothing & so appreciated their generous welcome pack, bathroom luxuries & stock of basics. This was a world away from the hustle & bustle of life with magnificent views, serenity yet so convenient for day trips out to the Lakes, Yorkshire, Arnside, Trough of Bowland - all in their autumn splendour. Great walks, geo caching, cafes &pubs all nearby plus village shop. Watching the divers from our own balcony or the terrace of the Dive Centre café was an added interest. Lakeland, Hayes Ambleside, Barton Grange easy accessible for the shoppers/gardeners - lovely Christmas displays. Friendly, attentive customer service - a hidden gem waiting to be found.
We just had a super weekend at Jackdaw Quarry Heights. The owners had thought of everything. The place was immaculate when we arrived- really felt spoilt waking up to such amazing views.
The location could not be better some lovely walks near by, can highly recommend Catch 23 for afternoon tea- they really looked after us. And ate at both the local pubs both very good value. We will certainly be returning.
My husband and I (and our dog) have just spent a week at this lodge with his parents and it was absolutely wonderful. With the amazing views, fantastic facilities & décor, and the lovely local area, I don't think anything could have made this week more enjoyable and relaxing.
The lodge is beautifully furnished and has all the amenities you could wish for, but what made it extra special for us was the added touches that were provided, like the Welcome Pack, the DVDs/books/games, and the dog/child friendly additions. It's clear that no expense or effort has been spared by the owners to make sure the lodge provides a luxurious and relaxing break.
We spent many relaxing hours sitting on the deck & balcony watching the local wildlife and the diving school in the quarry, even enjoying a BBQ or two. Before we went we were concerned about how noisy the quarry would be but I can honestly say that our concerns were totally unfounded as it was so quiet and peaceful.
The place is ideally situated for anyone who likes walking or diving but if, like us, you just want somewhere to relax and unwind I couldn't think of a better place.
