'What a delightfully quirky B&B. We stayed in Rum Doodles suite, room 9 “The Summit”. It has a comfortable lounge with a spacious bedroom and a bathroom that caters for all your needs. Everywhere was clean and tidy and the staff extremely helpful, they were more than happy to assist us with all our queries. Breakfast was second to none. Not only is there a reasonable selection but everything looks and tastes delicious. Couldn’t have picked a better location for our long weekend. Have already booked our return visit.'

Rum Doodle- unique and welcoming!
5 stars 5

'As it states un the welcome pack,Rum Doodle b&b was named after a parody documenting a band of explorers and the eponymous fictional mountain. The decor has very much the theme of the book in mind, with binoculars, climbing equipment and old furniture giving a warm, inviting feel to the place. Our welcome was as warm as the surroundings, being offered sauvignon blanc on arrival, and some delicious home made cake with our tea making facilities. We stayed in the ground floor Jungle room, named after one of the characters. The room was one of 2 where breakfast was brought to your room and eaten at a small table situated by the window. There was a wide and delicious selection of breakfast on offer, and sufficient to set you nicely up for the day. We loved our stay here, and will certainly revisit Rum Doodle again in future.'

Fantastic weekend break...would definitely recommend
5 stars 5

'My partner and I stayed at Rum Doodle for a weekend break and were very impressed. First of all the photographs do not do the B&B justice...we were greeted by beautiful antique and quirky decor with a warm and friendly atmosphere. Endless books on offer to browse and a section of DVDs. Wine and nibbles were on offer from the B&B owners when we checked in which was a lovely touch. The room was great, again the decor was fabulous, and all amenities you would require were available. Breakfast was of a high standard too. Whereas the bathroom was not as modern as some other parts of the room, it was a small insignificant part of the stay. I would highly recommend Rum Doodle, and look forward to staying again!!'

Located in the midst of town, both walking distance to the railway station and to the Bowness-on-Windermere. Pity that I just stayed for two nights.

Vintage Vibes
5 stars 5

'Stayed at the Rumdoodle for two nights. It\'s hard to describe the Rumdoddle as a B&B or a hotel or a guest house. It\'s got a feel of all of those categories. The room we stayed in was The Summit. Id describe that as a suite. Lovely bed so comfy, really fancy dresser and plenty of electrical points. The living area is the same lovely comfy seating area, lots of choice for tea or coffee and plenty of reading material from the owners. The tv is almost really not needed as it is such a vintage feel to it maybe could be replaced with a gramophone?! The breakfast has a great choice and we had both salmon on eggs and pancakes (highly recommended). The owners are there if you want to ask anything but are not intrusive the way some places can be. The other staff and polite and friendly and were laughing and chatting as they went about their jobs which I thought gave the impression that they like working there which is always a good thing. The location is ideal for both Windermere and Bowness Would highly recommend the Rumdoddle and round this review off by giving it 10 out of 10.'

'Just returned from a 3 night stay in room 2 jungle. Fab location, easy walking to both Bowness and Windermere meant we could leave the car in the car park most of our stay. Room was lovely although being between the front door and the kitchen meant we did suffer some disturbances with other guests coming & going not being considerate re noise levels. We\'d certainly stay again but choose a different room. Breakfasts were delicious and plentiful. We had to have ours in our room 2 days out of 3 - not an option as too many guests staying. Would\'ve preferred to be given a choice - maybe other guests would\'ve preferred to breakfast in their rooms? Also little disappointed that the lovely piece of cake on the tea/coffee tray was only there on our arrival day and wasn\'t replenished on day 2 or 3.'

This B & B is unique and beautifully decorated so is something a little bit different from your standard hotel. The owners are lovely and more than willing to help out any way they can or advise places to see and things to do! The rooms are really welcoming and the burley room we stayed in this time has the great added features of a period style bath tub and Velux Windows in the roof which made the room feel cosy and welcoming! And the breakfast is excellent, made all the better by the use of local ingredients! Would recommend this hotel to anyone! Can\'t wait to stay again sometime :)'

5 stars 5

'As soon as I spotted Rum Doodle on-line { particularly the bit about being welcomed with home made brownies & having home made biscuits in the rooms ! } I knew it would be my kind of b&b . & . I wasn\'t wrong . Arriving late on Bonfire Night, Emma did all she could to make sure I knew where I was going & welcomed me very warmly . I had chosen to stay in Prone on the first floor . Charmingly cosy with beautifully curated furniture it was perfect just for me . In addition to the promised home baked goodies { which were lovely & made me glad I was there on my own & didn\'t have to share them . . . } there was a lovely array of teas & a cafettiere in which to make coffee, along with hot chocolate, perfect for a chilly bonfire night. Breakfast is served in the sweet dining room & has a small, but perfectly formed, menu - over the two days I sampled the scrambled eggs & the blueberry pancakes, both of which were just lovely. In the rooms there is a folder with great recommendations on local restaurants, pubs & coffee shops, plus places to shop, each with a thoughtful, and personal description of why Sean & Emma have included them on the list. As you\'d hope from a b&b the personal touches are everywhere & the whole place exudes the fondness with which Sean & Emma have built the place. I can\'t wait to return.'

Great find
5 stars 5

'Stumbled across this uniquely named B&B whilst searching on google for Windermere B&Bs. Great find - quirky vintage decor, all very considered, comfortable and well thought through. Emma and Gregor, the hosts, were very welcoming and full of advice. We had a glass of wine on arrival (after a late, long drive) and were offered an complimentary upgrade after a couple of nights because the B&B was quiet. Breakfast was amazing - the best we\'ve had at a B&B - from the full English, to pancakes, porridge, smoked haddock - all top quality ingredients put together with restaurant quality. Good value for money and a one-off experience - definitely worth looking up if you are staying in the south lakes.'

'The breakfast was the best I have experienced from a B and B. The stay was hosted by a warm hearted and a genuine, bright and breezy owner who seemed to love her job, and so, showed care and interest in the guests for giving her that joy. She very clearly took her food seriously and wanted others to experience her appreciation of the same.'

'We recently stayed at the Rum Doodle for my partners birthday. The location was great, just a short walk into town and to the lake. Extremely friendly welcoming with tea and brownies on arrival. My only criticism would be that the room was smaller than expected, but still lovely, and the mattress wasn\'t the comfiest which I did advise the lady of. Back onto positives and the breakfast was fab with a great selection. They also go to the extent of having a vast range of DVD\'s for the nights where you just want to chill out in your room and do nothing.'

The room (2)was spacious,very light and airy with maps on the walls and various trinkets depicting travel with humorous references to the Ascent of Rum Doodle... The breakfast which we had in our room was very high quality, and substantial enough to fuel us for our days walking in the fells..

The bed was extremely comfortable thanks to the mattress topper and linen. Nice little touches like home baked cakes and tea/coffee making facilities were appreciated upon our arrival. I also requested a chilled bottle of prosecco to be in our room and it was very nice too.

'The Rum Doodle is a lovely B&B. We stayed in a room downstairs next to the kitchen. The room decoration was a lovely, a little quirky with maps as wallpaper - very unique. The hostGregor and Emma were extremely welcoming and even had a glass of wine ready when we arrived. Breakfast was served in the room which was a great touch and tasted wonderfully. I would recommend anyone to stay there and would stay there again. Brilliant, thank you.'

5 stars 5

'We were made to feel welcome by Emma from the moment we arrived. Settled in with a cuppa and lovely piece of homemade cake in the wonderfully quirky dining room. She had lots of advice about where to eat (just a 10 minute stroll down to Bowness), plus there\'s a handy book in the room with restaurant recommendations. The room itself was beautiful and clean. We had the option of having breakfast in our room infront of the big bay window, which was a great touch (I think there are only certain rooms in the guesthouse that accommodate this). The breakfast was lovely, we went for the full English, but there was plenty of other options to choose from. So glad I came across Rum Doodle, won\'t stay anywhere else now when visiting this area of the Lakes!'

'We stayed at the Rum Doodle for two nights in March 2015. The minute we walked in we knew we were in for a treat. Emma was the perfect host showing us first to our room,then inviting us to homemade cake and fresh tea/coffee in the dining area...perfect. Our room although small was exquisite,very tasteful in decor with a very comfortable bed with good bed linen and pillows. The bathroom included a bath with a shower over, sink and toilet. There were complimentary toilets should you wish to use them. The towels were white and huge very fluffy and of good quality,kept on the heated towel rail that was always warm. Fresh coffee and a selection of tea and biscuits were provided daily along with fresh milk (not the horrible milk in the little cartons) Little touches that made a difference! Breakfast was excellent everything cooked to order with an excellent choice, something for everyone. We will be recommending Rum Doodle to friends and will most definitely return! Simon And Karen.'

The breakfast was amazing (defo try the pancakes) and the owners were super welcoming and helpful.

'It maybe tucked away, but this place is well worth finding! Such a beautiful house from the outside, things only get better on the inside. From the fantastic welcome from the owners, to the novel little touches that finish off each room, everything is there to impress! Despite having the smallest room in the property (Pong), we were by no means disappointed, it was tastefully decorated, emaculately clean, and again finished with some quaint little touches. The breakfast like everything in Rum Doodle, is fantastic. Whether it\'s Full English, Pancakes or a Fruit Salad, everybody is catered for and in some style. We really enjoyed our stay here, and will most definitely be returning!'

'Weekend trip - January 2015. We were greeted with a glass of wine on arrival and taken to our room by Gregor (one of the owners). He immediately made us feel welcome we felt so throughout our stay. The breakfast was excellent, with an array of hot options as well as a buffet style table for toast, juice, delicious yoghurts and fruit etc. Every detail is well thought out and provides an insight into the minds of the owners and the eclectic sources from which the place derives its character. It maintains the simplicity of a B&B while providing its guests with many of the feelings of a boutique hotel. For an inexpensive trip, it really was above and beyond what we could have expected, and additionally Gregor provided us with some fantastic suggestions for walks out around the Lakes. We would definitely visit again!'

The breakfasts were amazing and really set you up for the day.

Our room was just as expected (room6). Ultra clean,comfy and the bed was huge . Home made biscuits on the tea tray was a nice n tasty treat . Great nights sleep ( we slept with window open and could hear nothing apart from the birds the next morning ). Breakfast was lovely and you can tell quality products we\'re used- great way to start the day before we went off to explore . Owners have a wealth of information and they always seemed approachable and interested in what you said . You don\'t get this in big hotels :). My only regret is that we couldn\'t stay longer but I\'m sure we will return . Thank you Alistair & Gaz'

'Lovely stay - warm welcome with tea and cake and this level of service was evident throughout our stay, without being in any way intrusive. We booked late so had last choice of rooms, but even so were very comfortable. We'd definitely like to come back and try out some of your other rooms. I think our only criticism (and that seems like too harsh a word) would be that the bathroom in room one is a little dated, but it was kept spotlessly clean and there was plenty of hot water so not really a complaint at all! Breakfast was delicious with lots of choice; he smoked haddock was particularly noteworthy. Perfect location in the middle of Bowness and Windermere village. Only a short walk to some great restaurants for dinner but really quiet set back of the main road for a good nights sleep. Really good base for walking with easy access to all the cruisers and ferries to be able to get to all sides of the lake, but would also be ideal if you wanted a less active break. Thank you for a lovely holiday!'

'We arrived at Rum Doodle after a long day between flying from Dublin and driving from Manchester and when we got there we knew we were probably early but we were greeted by friendly staff who told us our room would be ready in about half an hour and offered us a cup it tea and some lovely cake which was just what we needed after our journey. Our room was really lovely ,very quirky, and the bed was very comfortable. Everything was spotlessly clean.The little extra touches of the bathrobes, tea, coffee and homemade biscuits were very much appreciated. The breakfasts were to die for and it was impossible to decide every day what to have as everything was so nice. We stayed for 3 nights and had our breakfast in our room at the bay window with a fabulous view.We really enjoyed our stay in the Rum Doodle and would recommend it to anyone.'

well, for us it was finally overall the best b&b in the uk”
5 stars 5

'Well, for us it was finally overall the best b&b in the uk. that said, every b&b has its individual charm and there is usually always some (minor) downside. that depends very much on the individual point of view. In this case it could be for some the location and lack of scenic view. just it is only a short stroll to either the town center or the lake (center). so never mind. In all other areas Rum Doodle gets the full score. it has all the ingredients one needs to have a perfect stay.most important: a really friendly and genteel landlady, a house that has a beautiful charm and atmosphere, lovely and beautiful interior, very individual and cosy room (we loved ours;others might find it a bit too small), a great breakfast cooked by a chef (i would not wonder if it would result in an entry for Rum Doodle in the Michelin Red Guide). In any case you will enjoy our stay. Rum Doodle b&b sets the bar very high'

Excellent Stay

'Rum Doodle was exactly what it says on the tin! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was very nicely laid out with a seating area, a DVD player was very useful and being able to have fresh milk to make tea with was a bonus! The breakfast was the highlight for us with a wonderful choice of about 5 options and the food quality and presentation was superb. The distance from the B&B to Bowness was perfect for walking which we did both in the day and again in the evening to go out for food. Emma was so welcoming and very helpful during our stay. It was very quiet at night, being off the main road, I can imagine some of the hotels on the main road would be quite noisy. Overall we were very impressed and will be recommending Rum Doodle to our family and friends and hope to stay again ourselves in the not too distant future. Thank you!'

Bright and beautifully decorated with lots of attention to detail. Four poster bed with a seating area in a large bay window. We were offered a glass of complimentary wine and bowl of crisps which was a great little touch. Only a short walk to numerous bars and restaurants so perfectly located. We had our breakfast delivered to our room in the morning and it was delicious. Couldn't fault a thing. Have already recommended the 'Rum Doodle' to friends and family.

We only had one night there, however thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We found a fantastic restaurant a short stroll away and ate what was probably the best meals for all of us during our time away.'

Fantastic hideaway in the Lake District
5 stars 5

'I had booked Rum Doodle as a splurge for my parents and myself, as a part of our trip around England. I must say, it was quite worth it and certainly did not disappoint. I stayed in Room 5 Wish, and my parents were in Room 6 Shute, and we were all more than satisfied. We were greeted on our arrival with tea and cake. The chocolate ginger cake was excellent, I must say. The rooms were as pretty and full of character as advertised on their website. The beds were comfy, the furnishings quirky. Room 6 had space enough for a table by the picture windows, where you could have breakfast brought up to you (not all rooms had this service, but if you have such a room and it's a busy time at the B&B, you might want to eat in the room as the common dining room could get congested). Best of all was the service from Emma and Gregor and their team. Despite the chill of the season, they brought great warmth and hospitality. It was their personal touch that made our stay beyond just good to truly pleasurable. If I must find something to gripe about, well the housekeepers did miss out placing towels in my parents' room. A very petty niggle, really, and was very promptly set right by the diligent house elf. Also, it rained on our last day, through no fault of Emma or Gregor's. But one might blame them for providing such a pleasant hideaway that one wouldn't really mind being stuck indoors with a book and some tea or cocoa. All in all, my parents and I were most delighted to stay and Rum Doodle, and would certainly recommend the place to anyone.'

'Staying at Rum Doodle was a wonderful experience! Having spent the previous few nights elsewhere at a rather large, cold and imposing hotel, it was very pleasant to be warmly greeted by the ever-friendly Gregor as we walked in the door and instantly made to feel at home, especially with the offer of delicious apple cake served with a fresh pot of tea. Our room, The Summit at the top of the house, was comfortable, light and airy, breakfast was delicious, and everything was done to make us feel entirely at ease. With a relatively short and pleasant walk up the hill to the centre of Windermere or down the hill into Bowness, we were perfectly located for a short stay in this beautiful part of the world. Certainly, if we visit the area again, for either a short or a long stay, Rum Doodle would be the first place we would try to book.'

'Everything is great! especially the breakfast, had THE BEST pancake in my life. The only improvement i can think of will be the shower. it's a little bit tricky to get the right temperature for me and it will be even greater if the water pressure is higher(but probably not very environmental friendly)'

'What a warm, friendly, superbly well run B&B situated within easy walking distance of both Windermere and Bowness. Emma and Gregor truly are the best of hosts; from the warm welcome to the cheery farewells, nothing was too much trouble for them throughout our stay. As soon as you arrive, you can see the love, care and attention they put into the place throughout and that’s what makes this B&B stand out. We booked the Shute room for three nights with our 2 year old daughter, a large airy room with very comfortable four poster bed and a breakfast table situated in the large bay window. We were delighted to find a selection of children’s books and a place setting with kiddie tableware. With so many places claiming to be child friendly, it was an absolute breath of fresh air to find Emma and Gregor truly were, as they welcomed our little one with open arms and ensured she felt as welcome as we certainly did. With tea and homemade cake in the afternoon and a complimentary bottle of very nice house red, we felt really spoilt! Breakfast was superb with a wide array of dishes available. My wife alternated between the banana and blueberry pancakes and the banana and almond porridge and enjoyed both equally. After tasting the full English on the first day, I stuck with that for the duration – extremely tasty and well cooked with a perfectly poached egg on each occasion! As you can pretty much guess, we had a fantastic stay at Rum Doodle and wish we’d been able to stay for longer; it really was a home from home. Thank you Emma and Gregor for making it a lovely stay!'

Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer...'

Relaxing Rum Doodle
4 stars 4

'Clean, bright, comfortable, contemporary, and stylish. Very welcoming and helpfull(the cake and coffee went down well). Breakfast worth getting up for - local produce - cooked to perfection and well presented. The king size bed in room 2 compromised the available space in the room - could have been difficult for larger or older people to manouver around the bed. Probably would have given a 5/5 instead of 4/5 had this not been the case. Despite this, we had a lovely, relaxing time and hope to return to Rum Doodle in the near future.'

We were welcomed with a glass of sauvingon blanc and a lovely chat with Emma who was able to reccomend some fantastic local restaurants. We were torn between staying here or going for a hotel instead and we were both grateful that we chose Rum Doodle- we'll most certainly be back!'

Perfect Romantic Getaway
5 stars 5

'When looking for a place to stay in Windermere my fiancé and I ended up trawling through countless cookie-cutter websites for B&Bs that seemed to advertise the destination rather than the accommodation. Then we landed on Rum Doodle. The website was professional and boasted warm and inviting photos of what seemed to be a real gem hidden away in the Bowness hills. Upon arrival we were so wonderfully pleased with, not only the decor/style of Rum Doodle, but also the genuine warmth from the owners Emma and Gregor. Their local knowledge (in particular for scenic locations that will photograph well) was second to none, and they were consistently going the extra mile (even to the point of helping switching out our flat tyre for us, and then telling us of an auto garage where we could have the flat fixed!) If we had to distil our opinion of the service we received in Rum Doodle down to just two words we would have to choose the following: Above and Beyond. They made our weekend away that bit more special. We've not a bad word to say about this B&B; professional, well thought out website, quintessentially quaint rooms, warm and wonderful service, and all this wrapped up in the beautiful scenes of the Lake District's Windermere. In just two nights Rum Doodle has found two new regulars.'

'It is hard to fault Rum Doodle. The staff are friendly and attentive, and the guesthouse very comfortably and welcoming (and arriving just after the Christmas holiday meant additional cosiness with festive decorations, homemade mince pies and mulled wine, and wonderful scented candles). The attention to detail was amazing, as well as a commitment to local producers. We didn't fail to notice the locally source chocolates and bath supplies in our room. The breakfast offering was also bespoke and ample, a great day to start the day either walking in the hills or exploring the local towns. My partner and I will definitely be returning. Graham and Emma, thank you!'

'Thought it was a lovely B&B. The room was nice and cosy but we did have a problem with the shower - it appears the drain was blocked and so the shower tray would overflow after a couple of minutes - had to bail out of the shower! We were also expecting a bottle of wine which I believe was advertised when booking - I'm not sure whether the disclaimer regarding wine only coming with full price bookings was added after I'd booked, but that's not a much of a problem. The price was fantastic though - £110! All in all a good stay.'

'Me and my hubby have just spent a lovely weekend in windermere at the rum doodle for our 10 year wedding anniversary. It took hours of looking at numerous b&bs before this one leapt off the page at us.We aren't a couple who like twee and flowers , so the photographs of the interior looked like just the place for us... We were greeted at the door by Emma and immediatley offered afternoon tea complete with a yummy offering of chocolate and ginger cake- splendid. We booked in room 2 "the jungle" which was perfect to mark our anniversary as it has lots of vintage maps on the wall and vintage travel type accessories (we went backpacking for a year on our honeymoon, so extremely apt furnishings!). We were given a complimentary bottle of pinot upon arrival for booking direct and this was just the perfect drink to relax and unwind before hitting bowness!! The experience of being able to eat our breakfast in our room was a real treat.. never have I stayed anywhere before where this has happened!! The breakfasts here are second to none and I can honestly say the salmon was undoubtedly the best I have ever had!!.We both had the cumbrian breakfast on the first day and were so full afterwards that we didn't have lunch till 3:30 and that was only because we were being greedy (there really wasn't any need for any lunch!!)A testimony to how good the breakfast is, is that me and my hubby actually got up for it!!!A first in any establishment, especially after sampling the one and only nightclub in bowness the night before!!! Rum Doodle is a really unique experience. The hosts are very friendly and knowledgable. The decor is charming and well thought out and the food is equisite This place is probably the only place in the UK where me and my hubby have felt like we have been somewhere very special; Rum Doodle has had such an effect that my hubby has purchased his first 8 vintage maps as he is apparently making us a decoupage map hallway!!!!!- it'll keep him out of mischief, so thanks for the inspiration!

Always on hand to help out and has plenty of time for each of the guests. Hospitality and friendliness is high on the list. Would not hesitate in booking again or recommending when next visiting The Lakes.'

'My boyfriend and I recently stayed at rum doodle and it was more than excellent! It is suitably located between Bowness and Windermere , shops, restaurants and lake only a short walk away! The guesthouse itself is stunning with quirky interiors and very homely! Our room was cosy and comfortable and had everything we needed and each morning we had an excellent breakfast cooked by the lovely owners! Safe to say I would highly recommend this guesthouse and would definitely visit again!'

Wonderful
5 stars 5

'This is probably the best bed and breakfast I have stayed in, the welcome was warm and friendly with tea and cake on arrival, beautiful cups and saucers by the way" our room was stunning a mix of modern with a touch of vintage and an added quirky flair with the unusually interesting wallpaper. Little touches like the books that are appropriate to the area and theme of rum doodle and the homemade heartshape biscuits were an added bonus. Our from room 6 was a view of the hills, which was a perfect setting for breakfast taken in our room. Breakfast was perfect and I shall go back purely to sample the pancakes as our two night stay was not long enough to to sample all the breakfast choices I would have liked. We loved it, thank you for creating such a lovely place!'

'My husband and I were up near the lakes for business and decided to add a few days enjoying the area. Rum Doodle was such a wonderful place to stay. Emma and Gregor are such warm people and have created an equally warm place to stay. Our room was perfect and clean and comfortable. My husband enjoyed the English b'fast (quality ingredients) and I had a delicious porridge second to none. We look forward to our next trip and will most certainly be recommending Rum doodle to friends and business colleagues.'

A Perfect Quirky Escape
5 stars 5

'Rum Doodle was an absolutely brilliant base for our short break in the Lakes. The thoughtful (and wonderfully quirky!) touches and attention to detail made it the perfect B&B - we loved the map wallpaper in our room (Jungle), the amazing selection of turn of the century Lakes travel guides, and a copy of 'The Ascent of Rum Doodle' itself. Emma and Gregor were fantastic hosts and we would definitely come back and stay again! Thank you :-)'
