With amazing views of Ingleborough/Yorkshire Dales, the Lakeland Fells, Morecambe Bay and spectacular sunsets over Arnside Knott, this impressive detached, ground floor and lower level property, nestles into the bed rock above the clear blue water of Jackdaw Quarry, which takes its name from the Jackdaws that roost there.

The superb, large open-plan living area is most definitely the heart of this wonderful home, from where you are immediately drawn to the spectacular views beyond and when the bi-fold doors are pulled back, the living space extends to the outdoors onto the spacious 20 m² decked verandah, making you feel part of this truly unique location. Apart from the stunning views, the living area offers plenty of comfortable seating from which to enjoy entertainment provided by a 47” Smart 3D TV with Freesat, 3D Blu-ray DVD player and Wii games console.

A stunning lodge and most relaxing holiday in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful lodge and setting. We wanted to get away and relax and couldn`t wish for anything better.

The lodge itself was stunning, well furnished and very comfortable. A balcony from the lounge area overlooking Jackdaw Quarry, with further baconies below from the bedrooms and a bottom terrace with a hot tub overlooking the Quarry. Watching the scuba diving was enjoyable and there is plenty locally in terms of shopping, restaurants or a drive out into the Lakes.

On a practical note, all the kitchen basics in terms of salt, pepper and other condiments are provided as is toilet roll, kitchen towels, dishwasher tablets etc. We took far too much with us.

Highly recommended and will definitely visit again.

One Clearwater

  • 5 of 5

The house was immaculate with a great view over the quarry.

High standard of comfort and a warm homely feel.

Had everything you would need for a fabulous stay.

The weather was rotten so we didn't really explore the area but the local shops for supplies are only a five minute drive away.

Carol and David were wonderful hosts.

The perfect week ......

  • 5 of 5

How lucky were we, my husband, mother and myself enjoyed a week in this superb property in a fabulous location with fantastic weather.

The reality was better than the description on this property, you cannot write enough about it, truly amazing! The beds very very comfy, everywhere extremely clean and well maintained, We spoke with David, the owner, who gave us great advice on local goings on and eateries in the area.

We wanted for nothing, wifi, films , BBQ and having breakfast on the balcony in the sun was such a delight.

Even Mother was persuaded to go in the hot tub with a glass (plastic) of champagne!!

We would highly recommend a stay at this property, indeed we will be back in a couple of months.
