Just back from a weekend stay at Rum Doodle and it was worth every pennny. We arrived after 6pm and Emma showed us straight to our room and brought us a welcome glass of wine. We were in room 8, the attic room, and it was surprisingly spacious and so comfortable. Loved the roll top bath in the room and... More

The rum doodle B&B was a fabulous place to stay, the house is beautiful with quirky decor which we loved. The owners Emma and Gregor are really lovely people, made us feel at home and Emma greeted us with tea/coffee and delicious carrot cake on arrival. The 'binder' room we stayed in has the option to be a twin or... More

We have stayed in many B&B's in the Lakes and the Rum Doodle is by far the best. It is beautifully decorated with many unique little touches, our room was honestly described as a small double and it was just that. However the bed was extremely comfortable with lovely soft linen. We had everything we needed to make our stay... More

A really nice place to stay, great location - slap bang in between Bo'ness and Windermere. The B&B itself has some great features and very individual decor. Breakfast is excellent and the staff are friendly. I really liked the welcome drink on arrival - nice touch! We were slightly disappointed not to have stayed in one of the refurbished rooms,...

It was just amazing!! We stayed in the attic room, which was gorgeous. We stayed for one night and wished we could have stayed for longer. Everything was perfect. The breakfast was delicious! If we ever end up in the Lake District we will definitely return:)

Any hotel that welcomes you with a glass of wine and homemade cake on arrival, can do no wrong in our books! We had such a lovely memorable stay and were so well looked after from the moment to we arrivied until we checked out. The decor was beautiful, the hotel had so much character and all the little extras... More

My girlfriend and I visited here for our anniversary. The staff were extremely welcoming, offering us hot drinks and homemade cakes on arrival. The room was spacious and clean and had everything we needed. The bed was comfortable and breakfast was served in our room at a time of our choosing. I would highly recommend this B&B and would return... More

Fantastic little B &B. Great communication with Emma beforehand to arrange flowers and Prosecco for our arrival. A quirky place that we just loved. Lovely breakfast and great hosts. I have a feeling that we will be back. If you want something a little bit different with that personal touch this is the place for you

Well what can I say, I had a wonderful Birthday surprise booked for me at Rum Doodle. Our arrival was considerably delayed due to a last minute job interview (in which I got the job!!!) and we didn't reach the front door until 7:10pm, far later than the original 2pm arrval we had planned however it was still as lovely....
