Excellent service and the staff have always a smile for you. Service is first class though can get a little busy later in the day. Breakfast is awesome to say the least and a big thank you to Sandie and her staff for their welcome.

Another fab day at Capernwray. Tom finished his BSAC Ocean diver course with Harrogate BSAC. Whilst he was diving we tested the cafe and the excellent dive shop. Brilliant place and facilities for divers and open water swimmers.

Good all round dives with plenty to do and see. Excellent facilities including dive store and cafe. Just one thing the staff could smile a little more often. At times you felt you were a burden, change this and I think it would be five...More

Don't see where there should be a problem. Just did a little google and there are many taxi companies in Carnforth. Am sure the staff at Capernwray will gladly call one for you.
