Capernwray up for sale


Fancy owning your very own inland dive site? One of the most-popular venues in the country – Capernwray, at Jackdaw Quarry near Lancaster – is up for sale for a cool £3m.

The sale comprises approximately 24 acres, and includes the lake itself, the extensive car park, the main dive centre building and the secondary toilet block / workshop facility, as well as woodland and open land.

Part of the land on offer benefits from planning consent for the erection of 19 self-catering holiday chalets (14 three-bedroom, two-storey, three two-bedroom, two-storey, and two two-bedroom single-storey) on the property, most of which would enjoy uninterrupted views over the surrounding countryside.

If you budget won't stretch to the full deal, you can opt for just the Capernwray dive centre side of things, including the lake, the two buildings and the car park, for £1.2m, or just the 6.43 acres of land with planning consent for the self-catering holiday chalets, for £1.8m.
