Welcoming hosts with tasty treats.

You will find the hosts at Rum Doodle to be fantastically friendly, attentive and informative, creating a relaxed atmosphere in the B&B, and giving a very warm welcome with tea and sumptuous cake, or a wine in the evening.

Quirky style, very comfortable.

Guests loved the quirky, clean and comfortable rooms, which were found to have lovely attention to detail and a nice DVD library available, while the same unique vintage style was found throughout the building.

Delicious cooked-to-order breakfasts.

You will find the breakfasts delicious, whether you opt for the cooked Cumbrian, pancakes, or another cooked-to-order choice. Guests appreciated having a chance to chat with the owners or have breakfast delivered to their room.
