Me and my boyfriend stayed for two nights at the start of December and had a wonderful time. We stayed in 'The Summit' room which was lovely, the bed was so comfy we really struggled to get up in the mornings! The breakfast was also a highlight, I definitely recommend the Cumbrian breakfast, it was so good we both had... More

Stayed two nights at the Rum Doodle with my partner on our first trip to the lakes.Booked room 9, named "The summit" which proved to be an excellent choice. Although we arrived late at night, the welcome by Gregor was so warm, no sooner had we forgotten the long trip, although the complimentary glass of wine might have had something... More

We stayed here in early December after a last minute plan to seek some forced relaxation in The Lakes. We rarely stay in B&Bs, favouring hotels, but we decided to throw caution to the wind. On arrival we were greeted by Gregor, who was very friendly and welcoming. He showed us to our room and then served tea and homemade... More

Thanks so much for that lovely recommendation of Rum Doodle. As you were in our smallest room the shower room is quite compact, our larger rooms do have more space if you need it next time round. Look forwards to having you back! More

Stayed at the end of November. The welcome from the owner was excellent. Glass of wine offered after a long journey. Excellent customer service. Couldn't complain about the owners at any point. The four poster room was very nice with lots of quirky little features and additions. Loved the table and chairs by the window and breakfast served in the... More

I stayed here for 3 nights last week with my boyfriend and it was amazing! We were welcomed by Emma and were instantly taken up to our room (room 9) which I would definitely recommend to anyone! It was like having our own little apartment. All the rooms were a good size and well organised although being in the attic... More

Great little hotel! Has it's own little car park, when we got there we was greeted by the owners and got taken to our room where we was offered a glass of wine as we arrived at tea time, the room (room 6) was gorgeous, the pictures don't do it justice at all! Big four poster bed which was so... More

Myself & my boyfriend (at the time) stayed here at the weekend. We'd booked for his birthday having never been to the Lakes before. Everything was perfect from start to finish, from Gregor's welcome & knowledge to the red velvet cake & homemade cookies. The breakfast was incredible & the room (room 2, Jungle) was inspired. Needless to say, we... More

I decided to write this review based on a recent to this wonderful b&b. One member of our party has a serious illness and Emma & Gregor couldn't do enough to help. Everything about Rum Doodle is wonderful, from the location down to the breakfast. As for breakfast the potato cake on the full Cumbrian breakfast is to die for,... More

Just what we needed to get away from the hustle and bustle of home. We didnt know what to expect but from the greeting when we arrived to the thankyou when we left we were not disappointed. The room was lovely with a decorated theme and the breakfast was amazing. You have to try the smoked haddock and scrambled eggs,... More

We have just returned from a 2 night break here and thoroughly enjoyed it. Lovely place! The rooms are fab, so original, with lots of vintage features. The breakfasts were great & I especially enjoyed the pancakes. The owners & their staff are very friendly & helpful. We will be returning for sure! :-)
