We got a great deal for this B&B on livingsocial.co.uk and weren't disappointed! Prosecco, chocolates, rose petals on the bed and two tickets for the Lake Windermere cruise all included in the deal price. We stayed in Room 4, Prone, which was nice and cosy (if not a little smaller than what the photos suggest) but it still had room... More

Lovely welcome. Owners were away but the lady (forgotten name) was brilliant. Very pleasant manner and really made our stay. Room small but very clean four poster bed (a bit too large for room) but we both had a fantastic nights sleep. Breakfast was delicious and very filling. We did the living social deal and cannot complain about value for... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here in March and we were both very pleased. Emma and Greg couldn't have been more helpful, including making space in their shed for our bikes. They offered very good advice on restaurants and places to visit in the local area. Our room was cosy and we loved the way it was decorated. The bathroom... More

This b&b was very nice so can't complain but a little disappointed with a few small things. We paid full price so didn't get the good deals that people rave about in the previous reviews. On arrival no cream tea as some received. The room (summit) was very nice, tely didn't work on the first night but my hubby spent... More

We were going to stay at the Rum Doodle for two nights but found we had an extra night available, so we phoned at 11:00 am and spoke to the manager Beth. She went out of her way to fit us in for the extra night and we arrived at 12:30 pm to a very warm welcome and tea &... More

Just left Rum Doodle and Emma and the staff could not have been more accommodating. Lovely room with all the extras as promised. What made the stay different was the attention to detail with the decor and breakfast was outstanding on both mornings. Well delivered and so much choice. Perfect location for our stay and we'll be back. Thank you

Myself and my husband have just returned from a 2 night stay at the Rum Doodle b&b. We have have the most fantastic time. We got a deal through living social but chose to upgrade our room.

Rum Doodle is possibly one of the most individual bed and breakfasts I have stayed at. My partner and myself decided to go up to the Lakes to see family last min. and I wanted to stay within Windermere and stay someone a bit different- avoiding the mainstream hotels. When we arrived at Rum Doodles we were greeted and shown... More

Third time at Rum Doodle and this time we took our adult son. Gregor and Emma and staff excelled again on our short 2night stop. Rooms all marvellous and in keeping with the book theme. Breakfast varied and to die for. Its halfway between Windermere and Bowness so is a great point to go in whatever direction you like. If... More
