We booked Rum Doodle because we loved the quirkiness of the rooms! Originally we booked the Prone room, but I secretly changed our room to the Burley room as a surprise for my boyfriend. The room was absolutely amazing! The B&B is also really close to a variety of pubs and restaurants which were all in walking distance. We could... More

Very brief but very lovely stay. This place is an absolute gem. Delicious homemade brownies and coffee on arrival and amazing breakfast. You really need to check this place out. Highest recommendation.

Just arrived home from rum doodle, it is the best b&b experience we have had. It's quirky and lovey and quiet, also it is only 15 minutes into bowness and 10 minutes to windermere will definitely return and recommend

Emma was a lovely host and went out of her way to be welcoming with home baked goodies in the room and a welcome brownie and tea/coffee on... More

Rum doodle was fantastic, probably the best bed and breakfast we have ever stayed in. The rooms had so much character, they were clean, warm and really Cosy, felt very much at home. The owners were super accommodating and informative. The personalised touch didn't go unnoticed with the hand written info pack. The breakfast was sensational, the blueberry pancakes were... More

Great vintage style room, amazing breakfast, lovely homemade cake and tea on arrival. Got much better deal when we booked direct and there's better cancellation policy through owner's own website, if you need flexibility.

Stayed here in January 2015 (though Living Social). Excellent service, location, amenities, and the rest. We hold very fond memories of this place. Hence why we have booked again for April 2016. We booked for your pre-honeymoon stay after the wedding and before the honeymoon aboard. You are doing an excellent job and will be visiting time and time again.
