Wellness Escapes: 24 hours Celebrating 25 Years of Babington House and the original home of the Cowshed Spa


In 1998 Babington House, the original home-away-from-home space for members of London’s Soho House club opened its doors. Only the second Soho House property, it gave members a chance to relax in beautiful surroundings whilst soaking up the Somerset country air. Karen Williams visits Babington House for 24 hours for their 25 year celebrations wellness retreat with Cowshed.

Who is it for?

To mark 25 years, Cowshed have launched the Babington Botanical Facial using Cowshed products and botanicals sourced directly from the Walled Garden at Babington House. The great thing is anyone can book in – as long as you’re a member! If you’ve not managed to bag that super desirable membership yet though, you can still indulge in a slice of the pamper action at home. The Babington House Hamper is now available online at Cowshed and is coming to Marks and Spencer this summer and I am here for it.

The setting 

The 33 bedrooms set across the Main House, Coach House, Stable Block and Walled Garden, as well as the two-bedroom cabin by the lake, are decorated in a modern take on classic Georgian interiors. All the rooms are a blue or green tone with a variety of textures with a nod to the countryside. My breathtaking room had all the charm I expected. Sprawling across three levels, the four poster bed sitting on the mezzanine floor, a free standing metal bath, an old fashioned rustic wooden toilet and fabulous floor-to-ceiling windows with a sensational view of wild flowers and sky. The room was loaded up with Soho House’s new skin care range Soho Skin plus  a full range of Cowshed favourites named to reflect a range of moods like Relax, Awake, Refresh and Active. All contributing to that at-home spa experience. I was delighted to see some great books and magazines set out plus my favourite Grind Coffee pods.
