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. The... More

Just returned yesterday from another wonderful stay at Rum Doodle B+B for a couple of nights. We stayed in room 6 again which is our favourite. Emma and Gregory are still lovely owners and will make your stay special and make you feel very welcome. My husband and I love taking time for ourselves and look forward to coming back... More

I booked a Groupon stay for my partner and I as a Christmas present. It was very reasonably priced, and as we had never been to The Lakes before, but were keen to do a bit of walking it seemed like a good place to start. Rum Doodle is a wonderful and charming bed and breakfast, but I don't think... More

We have just returned from two nights in the brilliantly quirky Rumdoodle. We were warmly welcomed with wine & shown to our beautifully detailed, spotlessly clean rooms. Gregor & Emma are fantastic hosts who go out of their way to make you feel at home. The breakfasts are to die for, two were simply not enough. A return to sample... More

What a lovely B&B with a difference !! From the warm welcome by Gregor (a glass of wine and nibbles thrown in too!), to the warm farewell from Emma, we had a lovely 2 night stay in The Jungle Room. The room has a nice four-post bed, a table and chairs and decor with a difference. Breakfast was delivered to... More

We had a two night stay at Rum Doodle and stayed in The Summit (room 9). This place is perfect. The booking was easy and when we arrived we were warmly greeted, shown to our room and offered fresh coffee and cake. Our room was spotlessly clean and looked lovely with rose petals and chocolates on the bed, and a... More

This is a wonderful bed and breakfast with tastefully designed rooms and welcoming staff. However, the highlight of the stay for myself and my husband was the excellent breakfast. On the first day we chose smoked haddock and poached egg. The naturally smoked haddock and light poached egg were such a treat that we ordered it again the next day.... More

Booked into Rum Doodle during a recent business trip to The Lake District on the recommendation of a good friend and was not disappointed Emma somehow balances her busy family life with running a charming B&B and she is a delightful person. Sorted a dinner reservation at a fantastic local restaurant Hooked for me and served an excellent breakfast the... More
