Hosts were very helpful and accommodated our request for an earlier breakfast time with a smile. Bedrooms are quirky and beds really comfortable. En-suites are spotless. The breakfasts are amazing! Lots to eat from continental to...

We have just stayed two nights in The Summit room. It was perfect in every-way with its own little TV room great with a 3 year old as meant we could hide away when she was in bed. Emma is the perfect host and her breakfasts are amazing especially the pancakes. I couldn't recommend this B&B enough and hopefully we...

The room (7) was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The breakfast was excellent and the service fantastic.This was our first visit to the lakes and we couldn't have picked a better location.

Glad you enjoyed your stay at Rum Doodle. The attic has opening Velux windows, sorry you'd didn't realise how they worked, we should have explained. We serve tea and cake in the dining room, so were waiting for you to come down! Apologies for any misunderstanding, we thought you'd changed you mind and didn't want to disturb you. Our rooms...

An absolute gem of a B&B. We chose Rum Doodle as it appeared to have a quirky and unique feel and we were not disappointed! The owners are lovely and very accommodating yet there is a sense of privacy, we could not hear the other guests from our room (room 5 - wish). The rooms are immaculate and all amazingly...
