We stayed at the Brookfield for one night during our recent South West Coast Path walk from Hartland Quay to Croyde. We had booked a standard double en-suite room but when we arrived we were delighted to find we had been given one of the superior rooms at the same price. I think maybe Chris took pity on us as we arrived pretty wet from the rain. This was no trouble as Chris quickly took all our wet things and put them somewhere warm to dry off. Guests are able to use the conservatory as a lounge and a nice touch is that there is a fridge in it that contained fresh milk for guest use; we were also able to put the following day's lunch in it to keep fresh. The bedroom and bathroom were a delight - a real bath to soak those aching legs! The bed was really comfortable and the TV was a decent size at a proper viewing height instead of the smallest model available jammed into a corner at the ceiling you find in most other B&Bs. Breakfast was a delight with scrambled eggs and smoked salmon for both of us. A minor irritation was the Wifi. It does say on their web-site that it is a bit patchy because of the thickness of the walls, which is perfectly valid, but given the money that has clearly been invested in the property to good effect it is a shame that Chris and Julie have chosen to rely on a single router on a landing instead of installing several access points to give good coverage throughout. Nevertheless The Brookfield is a lovely place to stay and we would highly recommend it.
