what a lovely stopover on the C2C route. Margaret is a lovely lady we nicknamed her Mumsy Margaret and she was indeed. Lovely house spotlessly clean very comfortable and homely. The breakfast the following morning was first class even though all the guests at the tables seemed to be ordering every type of egg, Margaret was calm in control and... More

Stopping at Margarets just so good if you want spoiling, just like be a kid again at your Grandams nothing is too much trouble. The porridge soaked over night was the best ever, with any kind of fruit you wanted with it and the smoked haddock was cooked to perfection. The packed lunch, only as we expected by now

Margaret is so welcoming with delicious cakes and tea, especially after a long days walking. The house is immaculate with lovely comfortable rooms and everything you would need. Great breakfast and packed lunch. Wonderful, thank you

Brookfield Guest House is a beautifully furnished comfortable house located at the furthest end of Shap village. This was our second C2C crossing so we were aware that it would seem endless walk from Patterdale but well worth the effort. Sadly unless you eat in one of the hotels/pubs/chip shop en route to Margaret’s you will face a trek out... More

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!
