Certificate of Excellence

We only stayed for 1 night but have never stayed in a nicer hotel, it was clean comfortable and the owners were lovely, welcoming and friendly, the breakfast choice was different and lovely, the location was also good, inbetween Windermere and Bowness

Took a few weeks to book the right accommodation, and wasn't disappointed. Friendly welcome on arrival with coffee and home made cake and a chat with Gregor. Was shown to our room and was more than pleased with our choice. Clean, comfy and a good size. Our breakfast was served in our room, which I felt was a lovey personal touch. I would highly recommend a stay if in the Lake District.

Room Tip: Room No 6 (Shute), first floor and the front of the house and had great views.

We're so glad you enjoyed Rum Doodle's Room 6. Some of our guests staying in that room spotted wild deer running through gardens on the opposite hillside the other morning - womderful! Many thanks for the recommendation!

We discovered Rum Doodle after many hours of searching the web for somewhere special to stay for a family holiday. Eight of us were coming over from Spain and would be spending 4 nights in the Lakes. Our room requirements (5 rooms) and age spread (26-61 years, couples, singles..) made it a difficult search.When we found the Rum Doodle site we were charmed by the hotel and immediately phoned for a booking. Our 5 room requirement prooved a Little difficult but the owners were very helpful and with a bit of room juggling we managed to fit in.
The website was only a hint of the unique and wonderful atmospere that we discovered on our arrival. Even more important was the comfort and the 4 marvellous breakfasts. Even the younger generation made sure not to miss out on these and spanish continental breakfast habbits were forgotten!!
Needless to say the owners were charming and attentive at all times and made our stay a real pleasure.
I couldn´t imagine a more satisfying place to stay and my personal opinión is only one of eight!! Everyone was delighted with the Rum Doodle and had a FANTASTIC time.

Having lived in Spain for a short while your family's visit brought warm memories streaming back to us of wonderful Iberian days - and nights. It was a pure delight to have you all stay with us and we are so grateful you liked Rum Doodle and had such a wonderful time here in the Lake District. With all our best wishes, Emma & Gregor.

We stayed here for our honeymoon in the summit room, Greeted with a lovely bit of chocolate cake and coffee. And looked after brilliantly for the rest of our stay, room was amazing, it felt like we had our own little apartment in the lakes, Ideal when the heavens opened and we cosied up with our champagne. Breakfast was beautiful, My wife was especially impressed with the smoked haddock and eggs, Can't fault it really, Even though we're not well off, we thought the price was amazing for what you get. Thank you very much for making our honeymoon unforgettable, We will be visiting every year for our anniversary, that's a promise.

Very friendly and helpful with a great welcome. We were offered little extras such as carrot cake and coffee on arrival. We stayed in 'The Summit' which was lovely and spacious with quality fixtures and fittings. Nice touches like home from home such as books and wine glasses etc.
Really friendly couple and staff. Breakfasts were excellent. Everything about our stay was positive and we would definitely stay again. Made my 40th birthday very special. Thank you x

Me and my boyfriend loved it here. The B&B is in a perfect location. On arrival we were met by the owner Gregor who offered us a choice of drink and also homemade cake which was lovely. The B&B itself is lovely and cosy. The room was designed brilliantly and was nice and warm on a wintery weekend. We really did not want to leave. The breakfast was unreal lots of choice and to top it off we could eat it in our room looking out on a wonderful view. Thank you we will return in the future

Just returned home from lovely wknd at the rum doodle.
This was booked as a surprise by my boyfriend and we had the Summit room which was amazing I loved our own living room and the bed was extremely comfy.
Breakfast was amazing and I will be recommending the rum doodle to friends and family infact people are already asking about the place from seeing our Facebook photos and commenting how gorgeous the place is. Parking is great too and plenty of room.
Loved the DVD selection which we took advantage of.
