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

Had a wonderful stay at Rum Doodle, the hosts Emma and Gregor are both extremely friendly and welcoming and the B&B itself is both quirky and charming in its decor. We stayed in Room 6 which was lovely and with a nice big comfy bed. The breakfasts are great and the nice thing about our room was you can take... More

Just returned home from a wonderful stay at Rum Doodle B&B. I was a little worried at the themed concept but it was so well done! its not overwhelming but well carried throughout the rooms. We stayed in the Burley which was excellent with the roll top bath in the bedroom. Bed, pillows and duvet were the most comfortable I... More

We're delighted you loved the whole Rum Doodle thing! We think of it more as an inspiration than a theme and we're so pleased when well-travelled guests, like yourselves, enjoy the unique character of our place. More

The room & hotel were clean and quirky. Beds comfortable & facilities very good. The fresh milk and coffee cafetiere in the bedrooms was a nice touch. The owner was very helpful & friendly. The breakfasts were excellent, varied and cooked fresh by their own chef. We would recommend this establishment.

We stayed in the Summit room, well it was a suite really, bedroom, sitting room and bathroom plus a little hallway complete with coat hooks and boot tray. There are treats to choose from too, we chose a bottle of reasonably priced Rum Doodle Prosecco to have in our room on arrival Our hosts thoughtfully took the time to email... More

My partner and I wanted a last minute escape to the lakes and after searching online we stumbled across Rum Doodle. After a quick look through all the pictures and reading all the wonderful reviews we booked the last available room for 2 a night stay. What a stay we had! Not only is it in a perfect location and...

Thanks for all that feedback. The room you booked does have our largest super-kingsize bed and the ceiling height is 8ft - but sorry if you tall partner still felt cramped. We don't offer an evening meal as there's such a great choice just minutes walk from the front door of Rum Doodle. More

Genuinely can't get over the slightly negative reviews left; seemingly from people on a deal who should be grateful for what they get here at Rum Doodle. Appreciate that's not what my review should be about but can't help but comment after just reading others reviews! Anyway.. We've just returned from an absolutely delightful two night stay at Rum Doodle... More

We had a fantastic 2 nights stay at The Rum Doodle, Our Son was at scout camp just a few miles away for the weekend so my husband & I decided we would a few days in the lakes as well. The hostess could not have been more welcoming. Our Son was not at camp until 7pm however we arrived... More
