Spent a lovely night at this very friendly family run place. In a wonderful location for Bow ness and Windermere. Very comfortable bed and an amazing breakfast. You can a great cup of tea with fresh milk from the kitchen fridge. It deserves all the great reviews.

After looking in trip advisor and reading the reviews I decided to book this B&B as a special treat for my wife and I. We were dropping our daughter off at uni for her first year, on the Saturday and staying near by at Morecambe on the Saturday evening and planned to have lunch with our daughter on Sunday and...

It's a sad fact with Trip Advisor that people can leave a damaging review without having stayed with us. Yes you booked relatively late, as increasing numbers of people do nowadays. This also means that often we can resell rooms at the last minute, so avoiding any charges. On this occasion we were unable to do that and so as...

Visited Rum Doodle for our first wedding anniversary, beautiful b&b, decor is so wonderfully quirky! Owner Gregor was extremely welcoming, homemade cake and tea on arrival! We immediately felt relaxed and nothing seemed like too much trouble. Stayed in room 7, bed/pillows/duvet was so comfortable, amazing nights sleep! Lovely touches such as homemade flapjack and quality tea/coffee in the rooms...

My sister and I stayed here for two nights. It's a very quiet neighborhood, but easy to walk the town. Our breakfast was excellent and our host was extremely helpful with advice to see the local sights! A lovely place to stay!

We loved this place as well as the owners. They were very helpful and accommodating. It has a very homely feel and the way it has been set up, a home away from home. Rooms were quite compact but had all the amenities. Breakfast was very tasty and typical bed and breakfast where everyone dined together. Lovely atmosphere.

Stayed at rum doodle last year and didn't even look at any where else to stay this year. Once again we had a great stay and a lovely breakfast every morning. Emma and Gregor and the team run a excellent b&b. It's a short walk to the high st and the lake which is ideal.

First visit to the Lake District and chose to stay at Rum Doodle B&B. What a great choice! Nice accommodation with the bonus of a bath with shower over. A soak in the bath, after a hard day walking was a must to soothe our sore muscles. Eating breakfast in our bedroom (Jungle) was unusual but in no way a...
