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.

Our long weekend at the Gamekeepers Cottage

  • 5 of 5

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.

An enjoyable break in a cosy character cottage

  • 4 of 5

Despite the weather turning much colder, we were warm and cosy in the cottage with a very easy to use wood burning stove. The situation was lovely and the facilities in the cottage were good. All in all, it represented excellent value for money and I would recommend it to anyone.

Brilliant place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic place to stay. The welcome was warm and we had everything we needed. The extraordinary dining room table was great for board games as well as meals. The evening was made all the more enjoyable by lighting the fire and relaxing with a glass of something red! Plenty of bird life to observe and a wonderful peaceful atmosphere. We motorcycled into Wales and walked from the cottage. There was plenty of hot water available for baths on our return. We came at the right time for apple pressing and bottling of resulting apple juice... which tasted fantastic! Dr Field was a good host and very hospitable. Thank you for a wonderful week. We highly recommend The Game keepers Lodge for a visit.

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.
