Brookfields enjoys a delightful setting being just over a mile from the pretty village of St. Kew with its Church and renowned village Inn. At the top of the lane leading down to Brookfields is a nine hole golf course and close by is the village of St. Kew Highway also with a popular public house and local shopping facilities. The well-known and sought after town of Wadebridge set at the lowest bridging point of the River Camel is about 3 miles to the South-West. To the North also about 3 miles away in distance is the beautiful fishing village of Port Isaac with its outstanding surrounding coastal scenery. Also nearby are the well-known coastal centres of Padstow, Rock or Polzeath. The church spire of the village of St. Endellion which is well known for its annual classical musical festival can be seen from the property. Brookfields was previously used as a high-quality country guesthouse and in view of its setting, making it easy to tour locally or throughout Cornwall and subject to any consents required, the opportunity is there if a buyer wishes to use the property again for this purpose.
