Extremely comfortable, warm, clean - Margaret is exceptionally hospitable - above and beyond any expectations. Delicious breakfast, beautifully presented in homely surroundings, perfect packed lunch for c2cers - lots of homemade cake to keep you going and afternoon tea with homemade scones on returning from a long days walk. Every detail was considered, Margaret is the perfect host who even... More

Margaret welcomed us into this delightful BnB with a spectacular afternoon tea. My sodden boots disappeared and reappeared dry the next morning (Margaret blamed the fairies)! The bed was very comfortable, the room immaculately clean, the bathroom full of fluffy towels for weary walkers and the WiFi signal was strong. Breakfast in the morning was set up fit for royalty....

My sister and I spent 1 night here on our C2C walk traveling East. When you need TLC, comfort and encouragement, this is the place to stay. Margaret treated us and everyone else like family. The food was delicious and she packed us off with home made treats in our pre-ordered lunch which lasted all day. For non-C2C visitors, the... More

After a very long day (including a 1.5 hour detour up High Street) we were glad to reach our destination for the evening. The reception we received was very warm and caring, and the owner didn't even comment on the smell emanating from our boots. The room (which was at the front of the house) was very comfortable with an... More

In my opinion this is probably the best guest house in Cumbria ,I stayed one night in October and was so pleased I picked Brookfield House. I was the only guest and was upgraded to a double en-suit room for the same price. The room was spotlessly clean, as was the shower/bathroom, plenty of tea/coffee biscuits, flat screen TV and...

The warm welcome, pristine bathroom, lovely room with extremely comfortable beds, delicious breakfast, outstanding packed lunch, personal touch, great wifi, and Margaret herself combined to make our regrettably short stay here a delight. We hope to return soon!

Margaret, you are the best B and B owner I have met as well as a nice, caring and kind person. We arrived in Shap tired (plus it was around 7 pm) but it is worth the walk along the main road to Brookfield House. Margaret's welcome was so warm and she genuinely cares about her guests. She even washed... More

Here we are again! We have stayed here so often we can't count and there is a reason for this. Margaret could and should write the book on what it takes to be a great hostess. She simply can't be beat! Such a wonderful, kind, caring and perfect hostess. Nothing is too much trouble for Margaret and she is genuinely... More

We stopped here on our C2C walk. It is a long way down the Shap road but it is well worth the extra distance on tired feet. This B&B is owned by the lovely Margaret. She is just the nicest person you could wish to meet. This was the best hospitality and she genuinely wants you to care for you.... More

Stayed at this B and B while walking the coast to coast and the landlady could not do enough for us. Not only did she dry our boots but she washed our wet and muddy trousers, waterproofs and socks. We really felt she cared about us. Comfortable room and nice views. Packed lunches were the best of the fortnight with... More
