    Many thanks - glad you loved Rum Doodle! It is possible to stand up in the attic rooms! However, if you are over 6ft tall the ground and first floor rooms might be more comfortable.

    Hi! We have three people travel together, and are very looking forward to stay in your b&b! But the room policy we found online says that we cannot add beds to the room, so if we are going to stay here, can we book one suite(one of us can sleep on the coach if there is one), or do we need to book two rooms instead? Also, do you have website so that we can book online?
