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.

Unusual cottage, full of character but with all basic mod cons. A beautiful setting.

  • 4 of 5

3 nights for 3 schoolfriends meeting for a reunion. We soon felt at home & had a lovely time, catching up as well as gently exploring the locality.

The cottage is old but modernised enough for our needs. It has clearly been a home.

We were welcomed with homemade apple & pear juice & jam. We were left to get on with our break, knowing the owner was nearby in case of emergencies.

We had some trouble with WiFi but didn't bother to pursue this as none of us are addicts.

Evenings in the cosy lounge were great & we used the woodburner on the last evening when it got a little cooler. There is TV but we didn't use it much.

A written sheet with some basic information would have been helpful. Carol, the owner, met us & ran through some information but it would have been useful to have it written down e.g. directions to the lake, instructions on heating, how to use the WiFi, what to do on leaving the property, but generally this was a great place to stay.

Peaceful surroundings and a clean and comfortable cottage

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time during our stay of a week. There was plenty of space for the 5 of us and the cottage was clean and comfortable.

It was good having two bathrooms, a good sized dining area and lounge. It was an easy location for exploring. We enjoyed Tenbury Wells, Ludlow, the Severn Valley railway and West Midlands safari park.

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.
