About Ray Perry

Loweswater apartment was originally our holiday home in the Lakes, where we spent many enjoyable weekends before retiring to Cumbria and the Lake District. As Loweswater was our home in the Lakes, there is a feeling of a real homeliness not just a holiday rental. You will really feel at home and relaxed in this apartment. It is furnished to standards you would expect to find for yourselves, and hopefully you will appreciate the effort we have made to make Loweswater apartment a very pleasant and welcoming stay in the Lakes. The apartment is full carpeted throughout , ( kitchen floor and bathroom excepted which have tiled floors ) and is fully furnished with all those little extras to make your stay a very pleasant experience. From the moment you walk in to the apartment you will appreciate the light which floods in through the large floor to ceiling French doors.

Ray Perry purchased this Apartment in 1999

                                                          We, three adults, stayed there in June 2016 for a week. The apartment is in a quiet location, not far from a lots of hiking destinations if you have a car. Everything worked. We felt over all experience is better than if we stayed in a four stars hotel. If you don't like the feeling of you are one of many tourists, but would rather to experience how local lives, this is the place for you. If we return to the area, we would like to stay here again.

                                                          We enjoyed hosting Cindy, and are very pleased they found Loweswater meeting their 4 star expectations. We endeavour to make the apartment a real home from home, with all the comforts you would like to find. It is always rewarding to find visitors returning to the Lake District would return to the apartment.

                                                          Beautiful home in a beautiful setting

                                                          Liam E.

                                                          I had a lovely time staying here. The apartment is well equipped and comfortable. Mockerkin is very quiet, but Cockermouth is nearby with plenty of shops, while the mountains are only a couple minutes away over the hill. I stayed for four weeks and was sad to go. Ray and Margaret were wonderful hosts. They left me to my own devices but were always available to come by or offer advice whenever I needed.

                                                          Lovely countryside getaway

                                                          Well appointed, comfortable & cozy apt. in the quiet countryside on the western edge of the Lake District. Our hosts met us at the apartment to let us in, show us around & point us in the right direction for touring the area. They were very enjoyable to talk with. This is a great place to get away from the business of life & it's in a great location as a home base for all that the region has to offer. We would definitely recommend this place.
