I booked the Rum Doodle for my boyfriend's birthday canoeing trip to Windermere. I found it through the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor, and I was NOT disappointed! After a long drive we were welcomed by a cup of tea and a delicious slice of homemade carrot cake from Emma, then shown to our room. We stayed in the attic suite, room 9 (the Summit), which was beautifully decorated and very homely. We loved the separate lounge area in our suite, which was really cosy and nice to relax in at the end of a long day of walking. The breakfast in the morning was incredible (we both had the full, cooked breakfast) and really set us up nicely for the long day ahead. You could really tell that no expense was spared when it came to the ingredients used, and it was delicious! Location wise, the B&B was only a short walk to Bowness and the lake itself- which was perfect to go for our evening meal since we didn't want to take our car. In the hotel room there was a black book full of recommendations for things to do, including restaurants and activities. Each of the restaurants in the book were tried and tested by Emma & Gregor themselves, so you can be sure that where you are going will be good! We chose an Indian restaurant in Bowness, and were not disappointed. They even go as far as to print off the local cinema listings and place them in the book, should you need them, which shows a real attention to detail!
I would definitely recommend this place to anyone, and everyone! It really made our trip extra special, my only regret being that we only stayed one night! Cannot wait to go back.
