Brookfield occupies a superb trading location on the eastern outskirts of Keswick, within an easy and convenient walking distance of the town centre. Traditionally built in the classic Lakeland- style with stone walls and under a pitched slate roof, the property was built at the turn of the 19th Century and ideally lent itself to becoming a guest house to service the steadily increasing tourism industry. The present owner chooses to trade only four en suite bedrooms, using the remaining three as owner's accommodation but this could readily be altered should a purchaser desire. Brookfield also benefits from a delightful, landscaped garden to the rear.


The town of Keswick is often referred to as ''The Queen of The Lakes'' and enjoys an idyllic location between Derwentwater and Bassenthwaite Lake and benefits from a back- drop of picturesque Lakeland fells as well as being in the jaws of Borrowdale, considered to be England's most beautiful valley. Close by to Brookfield is Castlerigg Stone Circle which significantly pre-dates Stonehenge, while further afield are the oft-forgotten lakes of Loweswater, Buttermere and Crummock while Thirlmere, in its glorious, wooded valley, lies to the south. This all makes Keswick an enormously popular destination and helps brings tourists and particularly walkers to the area throughout an ever-increasing tourist season, which is also enhanced by the considerable number of festivals and conventions which Keswick is well known for.
