About Dr C. Field

I am a widow farming 120 acres, mainly grass, keeping sheep, some of them rare breeds such as Cotswolds and Shropshires plus pedigree Aberdeen Angus cattle. The farm also produces high quality apple juice,honey ,jams and free range eggs.My daughter is a vet and also lives on the farm,we are both keen gardeners when time permits.The farmhouse where we live is only a few hundred yards from the Bath house so we are usually on hand to sort out any questions.I married into farming, my father was a garage owner in a local village, my parents in law purchased the farm during the war, when my husband was farming it we produced thatching straw and many other unusual crops

Dr C. Field purchased this cottage in 1943

Why Dr C. Field chose Malvern Hills

The Bath House is a cottage on our farm in a very peaceful setting yet only two miles from the shops and facilities of Tenbury.It was extensively renovated in the late 1970's for my husbands own use and when we married the fitted kitchen was added as a wedding present from his mother.The large conservatory was built during the twenty years my mother lived there.Much of her antique furniture is still in the cottage along with many of her beautiful watercolours.This cottage has the feel of permanence, of a home,timeless and a part of the landscape yet with TV,Broadband,DVD,washing machine,fridge,freezer,and microwave.

What makes this cottage unique

What more can I say, I have many happy memories of early married life there. Of watching weasels play on the wall,of seeing a Roe deer on the lawn and of my daughter as a baby. I decided I could not bring myself to take long term lets but would much prefer to share the delights of the Bath House with as many people as possible I have added Carp fishing to add to peoples enjoyment of the secluded lake and just hope my guests love what we have here as much as we do.

A cottage in the country!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this pretty cottage situated just outside Tenby Wells. The owner was very helpful and had kindly put bottles of her own traditionally-made pear and apple juice into the fridge which were welcome! The lake was two minutes walk from the cottage and was good for fishing as well as being scenic and full of wild life. This was a perfect spot to relax and only ten minutes away from shops and good restaurants.

Comfortable cottage set in farmland teeming with wildlife.

  • 4 of 5

The cottage itself was lovely and the four of us enjoyed our stay but there was one issue

Being a party of motorcyclists we were not overjoyed to see a large muddy puddle across the rough track access to the property.

Unfortunately one member of our group lost control of their machine at slow speed and came off while trying to get through the area in question, one evening after a day out sightseeing. We are mature adults with many years of motorcycle riding experience behind us!

Perhaps some improvements could be made to that aspect : hard-core infilling for example!

Directions to the property could be a bit clearer too!

Owner's Response: We are sorry to learn of the problems our last guests had with the drive, we know it needs re-stoning but have been waiting for the highways department to mend their drain which is causing run off down the drive. In the meantime we will stone the area in question to eliminate the puddle.

A great place to escape to the country

  • 4 of 5

This was the second time we've stayed at the cottage, and our holiday was even more successful than the first. We stayed with our two sons, eight and four, and thoroughly enjoyed the chance to spend a week as a family in a wonderful rual setting, away from the city, waking up with sheep out the window. The boys enjoyed kicking a ball around in the garden or one of the neighbouring fields; and feeding the farmer's lambs. We also went on some long, circular walks from the cottage, starting at the stile at the end of the garden. And enjoyed the wood burner in the evening.

What a lovely time we had

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was as stated as just outside Tenbury Wells, but not too far away that you felt too remote.

It was clean and tidy and the owner lit the fire and put a Christmas tree up for us before we arrived :-)

Lots of nice pubs and shops in Tenbury. I would recommend Ludlow not far away but beautiful.

The cottage was large and roomy we had 11 people stay over the course of the week. Not all at the same time! It slept 6 more than comfortably.

The owner was lovely and made sure we had enough wood for the wood burner and checked we had everything we needed.

Would definitely recommend it and go back again.
