We stayed with Margaret when we walked coast to coast in 2010 and for our coast to coast marriage we requested to stay here again. She gave us a warm welcome with tea and scones after we arrived soaking wet after such horrendous weather! The room was comfortable and breakfast was brilliant. Her legendary packed lunch was just that! Amazing!... More

welcome was wonderful, rooms clean and comfortable, food excellent, packed lunch well over the top. Couldn't fault the B&B. (Charger found and speedily returned... sorry Margaret, can't imagine how many times you must have done that!) Thank you.

Felt like staying at a friends home with the best of care. Margaret's attention to detail and her sense of humour were much appreciated, her cooking outstanding - the Lemon delicious waiting when we got 'home' after a dinner was soooo wonderful.I was still hoarding her lunch goodies 2 days later! As a C 2 C walker this was the... More

Stayed during my C2C. Arriving a little late late (6-45pm) we were given a very cold and poor welcome which included expressly denying us tea and cake on the basis that "it's now supper time." Why expressly tell us what you are not prepared to do? Was there any need to be so rude? The room was small in comparison... More

We are walking Coast to Coast and stayed with Margaret after a long days walk. She greeted us with tea and scones continuing to care for us like long lost relatives for our overnight stay. Delicious breakfast which included fruit salad with fresh tropical and local fruit. Finally our packed lunch was filled with home made biscuits, cake, crisp fresh... More

Whether you are walking the C2C, or in Shap for other reasons, you will be greeted by one of the most lovely hostesses you could ever find. Margaret will welcome you to Brookfield House and do everything possible to make your stay comfortable and is pleased to do whatever fits YOUR schedule rather than the other way around. The B&B...

We also loved the attention Margaret gave us, even though she had injured herself earlier in the day and could barley see out of one eye. Greeted with fantastic scones and jam with tea. Much needed after the toughest day in he Coast to coast. Excellent breakfast and packed lunch as well.

Wow - we had heard that Margaret had a reputation and by golly she deserves it. Our 6th night on our coast to coast walk and we were feeling expert at assessing each nights stop by now. How we regretted having stopped at the pub before getting to the property and receiving Margaret's offer of tea and scones. Our rooms... More

We stayed at Brookfield House while doing the Coast to Coast walk and recommend it highly. Nothing is too much trouble for Margaret and great attention to detail. A sumptuous breakfast and an equally sumptuous cut lunch. The only drawback is that it is right on the far side of Shap, a disadvantage for walkers.
