We stay on 29 June When we check in we was greeted with a home-made chocolate brownie which was gorgeous and a cuppa... which was a nice Touch 😄 They couldn't do enough for you... The breakfast was amazing Can't wait to stay again... Thank you to all the staff 😁

We stayed for two nights, it was a birthday break for my Husband. Had a fab time. Great place to stay.. Each room is different with a vintage chic feel.. Lovely attention to detail, with quality products in our room.. Great location too.. Windremere & Bowness easy walking distance. Proprietor (Emma) & staff friendly & efficient. Lovely relaxing stay!

We had a splendid 3 night stay at Rum Doodle. The room we stayed in (room 6) was spot on for a mid week escape to the Lake District. Having breakfast served in the room each morning was a fantastic addition! Each morning we had a different breakfast, all of which were spot on! Really hard to find anything to... More

I came here last year with my boyfriend as a surprise for his birthday. Not only do we love the Lake District and the area around this B&B but we were more than happy with this choice of stay. The staff were wonderful and welcoming. You were not bothered unless you needed something - which is what we both like.... More

My husband and I have just spent 3 nights here, Emma and staff were so welcoming and friendly. All very relaxed. The quirky style in the B&B is just what we love and we may steal some ideas for our own house. Our bedroom was clean and cosy we loved the little touches; bath house products they were lush, the...

My partner had surprised me with a long weekend in one of my favourite locations in England! It's wonderful! It's so centred around my biggest passion... Walking, staff served breakfast in our room, I felt very special. This place is excellent!

My partner and I stayed in the Burley suite at Rum Doodle for two nights in the first week of June. The B&B is easy to find and there was off-street parking to the side of the building. The B&B is pretty much equidistant from the centre of Windermere and Bowness, and only a short distance from both (ten minutes... More

We have just returned from a last minute one night stay. We stayed in the jungle room which was very quirky and individual with a lovely 4 poster bed. We were served carrot cake and coffee on arrival which was lovely! The B&B is very unique and immaculate! The breakfast was yummy with a great choice. We would definitely stay... More

This review is for 2 stays at this fantastic B&B as we didn't get a chance to leave one after our first time stay here in Jan. We found Rum Doodle the first time through a Living Social deal, and my partner and I also took my parents as a Christmas present. It was the best possible gift we could... More

Stayed in the Jungle room 22-25th May 2015, would not stay anywhere else again!!! Beautiful rooms, wonderful hosts and the breakfast was amazing (being able to eat it in the room a lovely bonus), we loved the attention to detail and decor, a truly unique, quirky experience and a wonderful base to explore the rest of the Lake District.
