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

Very much enjoyed our stay at the apartment.

It had everything we needed, and we felt very comfortable. Location is also fantastic you can drive straight into beautiful countryside and the shops and restaurants or not to far away.

You can live like a local

  • 4 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: 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

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 4 of 5

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.

Loweswater apartment is ideally situated for the Western Fells with easy access to the three lakes that make up the Buttermere Valley. Drive from the apartment past Loweswater and Crummock and enter the Buttermere Valley from where you can carry on up the rugged Honister Pass to Honister slate mine , stop here and see the mine workings on try the Via Ferrata (if you dare)then onward through the wonderful Borrowdale Valley before spending a little time in Keswick taking in some retail therapy.

Ennerdale, the remotest of valleys ( just 15 mins away) with it's soaring peaks and rugged scenery will take you into dark and brooding world. Varied walking from gentle strolls around Loweswater to challenging high level walks in "Wild Ennerdale" are all short way from the apartment. Biking is a joy in the area, whether you like easy rides along quiet roads or challenging off road routes in Whinlatter, some of England's best off road trails. The gem town of Cockermouth is just a short drive away. With all it's independent shops and cafe culture you can enjoy a stroll around this glorious town and take in such sites as the birthplace of William Wordsworth, Cockermouth Castle,Jennings Brewery tour , the oldest building in town ,Percy Gallery, or just stroll along the river and enjoy sitting in the park.
