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 Tenbury Wells
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.

Wonderful cosy Christmas in lovely Tenbury
On arrival we found Dr Field and her daughter had provided a bottle of their delicious apple juice and some really tasty homemade tomato chutney, it was much appreciated!
I was very worried that my daughter and granddaughters coming from Australia to spend Xmas would not be warm enough but the cottage was very cosy. Because of my concerns the owner kindly provided 2 extra heaters but we only used them once when we were too lazy to light the wood burner. Although some of the furnishings are a bit worn, the beds were very comfy, the cooker coped well for the Xmas dinner (not always the case when away from home) the phone signal is poor but if you link your phone to the Wi-fi signal this solves the problem for the most part. The cottage is very reasonably priced especially at this time of year and my granddaughters loved it, it didn’t provide the snow they wanted, but they were amazed by a beautiful frosty morning.
Tenbury is a lovely town, we all enjoyed the panto at the Regal, the volunteer staff were so friendly, the Spotty Dog for hot chocolate and we particularly liked the Rose & Crown for its cosy atmosphere and good food. My daughter was keen to have a decent curry before returning to Oz and the Bahar restaurant provided this to her satisfaction indeed one of our visitors said their biryani was the best he had ever tasted. For such a small town Tenbury has so many good places to eat. Further afield we went on the Santa Special at the Severn Valley Railway and to the cloisters at Worcester Cathedral to see the 100 decorated Xmas trees, both really magical.
A lovely time was had by all!
great family house
For our 35th wedding anniversary we stayed at Gamekeepers cottage. Six grown ups had enough space to enjoy ourselves. A great garden ( also for kids) , a lovely woodburner for a chilly evening. Lovely towns and villages in the surrounding area. We saw the bright stars and even the milky way. Not light pollution! And the only sound were the sheep and at night an owl. We had 3 lovely weeks.
Very comfortable cottage in peaceful surroundings.
Our family group (ages from 4 to 92) enjoyed our weekend at the cottage and would love to return for a longer stay.
The house was perfect for our needs. We had a peaceful and relaxing stay. The wood burning stuff made the living room a cosy place to be and we even caught a couple of carp from the lake.
Our long weekend at the Gamekeepers Cottage
We really enjoyed our stay at the gamekeepers cottage, it is very cosy with loads of character, it was quite cold while we were there, so the log burning stove was great and Carol the owner kept us supplied with bags of logs. The beds were very comfortable.There are loads of interesting places to visit in the area. If you are looking for a quiet and peaceful retreat with lovely scenery then this cottage is just for you. M&D Staffs.
Comfortable, welcoming, attractive surroundings. We might book again for a summer visit when there isn't any snow!
Safari park, various open farms,gourmet restaurants in Ludlow,wonderful local scenery and a wealth of on farm wildlife.
