Rum Doodle Bed and Breakfast is so thoughtfully designed and run with such wonderful care and professionalism. This is further captured in the personal, caring touches made by the owners Emma and Gregor. Emma's warm welcome was so lovely as was her demeanor throughout our stay.The room (The Summit) is so lovely and light, with a stunning view. The house... More

We stayed here recently for a weekend in the Lakes. Had an amazing welcome in the morning from Emma with a great cuppa and luckily an early checkin to The Summit room. The room was superb, light bright and amazing views even from the shower. Wonderful breakfast options each day. I would suggest this is the place to stay in... More

We had booked room 6 which is a little more expensive but is a spacious room with four poster bed and a table... More

If you like souless, corporate hotels then this is not the place for you stay. If you enjoy being a person and not a number and like the personal touch then you can't go wrong with the Rum Doodle. We received a text the day before asking for an approximate arrival time and assuring us that we could drop off... More

Blimey - I guess you don't like cats very much! It's a shame that both Emma and myself (the guy, BTW Gregor is my name) felt we really put ourselves out to make you and your family feel welcome over the weekend that you stayed with us at Rum Doodle. We even bit our tongues over your seemingly incessant smoking... More

We stayed at Rum Doodle a couple of days after our wedding for 3 nights. It was our third trip to the Lakes and we wanted something a little bit more special than your average B&B, with great reviews and decent location (walking distance to both Windermere and Bowness) we booked up. We were still exhausted from the wedding and... More
