I have always been reluctant to stay in b&b's as the quality varies so much but rum doodle came recommended so we thought we'd give it a go! We weren't disappointed, the staff are exceptional (Donna was wonderful and nothing was too much trouble), the room was decorated well with attention to detail and the breakfast was lush! The only...

On a damp and dreary day we were delighted to receive a perfect welcome from Emma along with delicious slice of raspberry frangipane and pot of tea. Emma was the perfect host with a well thought out plan for anyone wanting to know more about the local area, including their favorite places to eat which gave a real sense of... More

From being greeted at the door by Donna on arrival to leaving at the end of our stay, the heart warming hospitality at the Rum Doodle from Emma, Grego and the team was second to none. Fresh Flowers and a bottle of Rum Doodle Procecco were in our room as I had pre requested. We chose to stay at the... More

We were greeted by a friendly owner and shown to our room, A really nice touch and well timed as had been driving a lot was a complimentary glass of red wine. The room we stayed in was in the attic and had a lovely bath in the corner of the room. The room was comfortable and clean and quirky.... More

Stayed at the Rum Doodle on 19th July for two nights for our 30th Anniversary. Nice welcome along with a delicious chocolate brownie and coffee. Good choice at breakfast recommend the pancakes. Lovely quaint accomodation, very central to Windermere and Bowness. Took an open top bus tour around Windermere, Bowness, Coniston, Grasmere. Had two lovely meals at Francines in Winderemere...

We spent 4 nights here, 3 in room 9 (the summit) and an extra night in room 6. The whole B&B is a delight to stay in. It has had so much thought put into the rooms and decor - do take time to look and take it all in. It's so much nicer to stay in than your average... More

We stayed at Rum Doodle July 2015 and are very impressed, not only by the excellent rooms and decor but by the owners and their staff. A friendly place (but it's genuine) and altogether the atmosphere is one of ease and restfulness. Perfectly situated a few minutes from Bowness and Windermere, with quick access to the main routes to drive... More

Very enjoyable stay, and would recommend. (we stayed in room 8, "Burley") Pros: The B&B is nicely decorated, in a quirky style. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was good, and had a decent variety of choices. The location is a short walk from both Windemere and Bowness shops/restaurants, and the welcome pack had several suggestions... More

Absolutely lovely b@b, very nice staff, clean and good breakfast. Near town of Windermere, rooms are quite quaint, peaceful and near town centre, would definitely go back. Plenty of shops, restaurants and Great Lakes
