My partner and I stayed on a Sunday and Monday night for our anniversary having purchased the deal via Living Social. We found the place quite easily and received a warm welcome upon arrival (which was very much appreciated considering the awful weather!) We were shown to our room where Emma explained that she'd upgraded us to Room 2 (Jungle)... More

This is a great bed and breakfast run by Emma and Gregor who are fantastic hosts and seem to have time for everyone. The rooms are all individual, clean, well equipped and very comfortable. There is free WiFi and it is quite reliable. Our bathroom had a shower and bath, the latter being perfect after a long walk. There is... More

We had a lovely time here and was made very welcome even had a cuppa and cake on arrival. The hosts really go out of their way to add little touches that make all the difference. We will definitely be back!

I recently stayed here with my boyfriend for two days cycling in the Lake District. We arrived early Saturday morning and received a warm welcome and were able to leave our bags until the room was ready later but given keys so we could come back when we were ready. Room 2 is on the ground floor, of good size... More

My wife and i stayed for 2 nights in room 6 (Shute) and found it to be faultless. The decor and furnishings throughout the house were beautiful and spotlessly clean, with breakfast served in our room which was fantastic. The location cannot be faulted being 10 mins walk from either Bowness or Windermere. Gregor and Emma are perfect hosts, from... More

We had a wonderful stay here last week, the house itself its very impressive with thoughtful touches here and there, and we were welcomed very warmly by the hosts who cannot do enough for you. Our room (the summit) was to die for, everything we could have wanted/needed, again with touches like the beautiful toiletries and furnishings. Breakfast was a... More

I wanted to write a rave review of this wonderful B & B, but it's all been said already! It's a gorgeous house, and it's so nice to see the effort that has gone in to it on the inside. Each room is individually themed. I particularly loved our attic room, Burley, which had a free-standing bath in the room... More

Had a great stay at The Rum Doodle in January. A warm and friendly greeting from Gregor when my wife and I arrived. Met with a nice cup of tea and a slice each of toasted fruit loaf. Themed b&b based on a spoof book on mountaineering(?). Room was good ,very tidy, very clean and tea and coffee provided. Breakfast... More

A lovely weekend spent at Rum Doodle. The owners are very welcoming and friendly and nothing is too much. Fabulous breakfast; great choice, beautifully cooked, presented and served. Quirky furnishings and decor. Would get that one more level of rating from me if the bathroom had been a bit nicer - probably due a small refurb, but nonetheless a great... More
