Jackdaw Quarry comprises in all about 24 acres (9.7 hectares) being a mixture of lake, car parking, woodland and open land. The property includes planning consent for 19 self-catering holiday chalets, the main dive centre building which provides a retail outlet, café and meeting space.
Part of the property benefits from planning consent (Application No. 21/00543/FUL) which granted consent for the erection of 19 selfcatering holiday chalets on the property. The chalets are to be constructed on the terrace at the northern and north eastern end of the lake which gives the majority of the chalets uninterrupted views over the surrounding countryside.
The planning consent allows for the construction of 14 three bedroom two storey chalets, 3 two bedroom two storey chalets and 2 two bedroom single storey chalets. Detailed drawings for each chalet type are available from the vendors agent.
The main building extends to about 3,944 sqft in all and provides a retail space currently used for the sale of diving equipment and associated items, a café and meeting and entertaining space. The building is set over two floors with split levels and enjoys an attractive south facing aspect overlooking the lake.
There is an additional single storey workshop building used for the servicing and maintenance of diving equipment, which extends to about 832 sqft.
The lake enjoys some of the highest quality inland bathing water in the UK with spectacular underwater visibility and provides an exceptional venue for scuba divers and wild swimmers.
The lake is formed from a flooded former quarry and is surrounded on three sides by cliffs cut from the bedrock which creates an attractive backdrop for the diving centre.
The diving centre benefits from an extensive area of hard-core surfaced parking with access direct from Capernwray Road
