Idyllic, Rural, Yet very Convenient Location.

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 large wide bi-fold doors are pulled back, the rear living space extends to the outdoors onto the spacious 25 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 65” Smart TV with Freesat DVR recorder and Blu-ray DVD player.

Fantastic value for a luxurious venue

By Teresia S on 09-Feb-2019

i would describe this as a luxury venue, and considering the price divided by the number of guests we had, it was a complete bargain. without going too much into all the facilities, it had everything we needed and more so. im sure we will be back at some point. many thanks 09/02/2019 at 3:46 PM

Peace and quiet in lovely countryside

By Patsy R on 28-Oct-2019

Wonderful accommodation and easy to find with the great instructions provided. A welcome of warmth on entering the property, out of the rain and darkness that we arrived in, much appreciated. Great couple of days walking and relaxing. Home from home, comfortable beds, amazing showers, hot tub an added bonus. If you want to get away from it all, this is the place to be. Went into Carnforth a nice small town, found everyone (strangers) so friendly and interactive. Beware, Carnforth practically closes down on a Saturday afternoon, their half day closing. Great area for walking. Didn't test out any eating places or pubs we preferred to relax in doors. Can recommend Clearwater One, well furnished, all the mod cons, kitchen well equiped. We get away to relax at least one weekend per year and I think we have found our ideal place. 10/28/2019 at 9:11 AM
