Babington House is a Georgian manor house set in 18 acres of grounds, deep in the Somerset countryside. A place to relax and be pampered, it's home to a Victorian walled garden, indoor-outdoor pool, gym, tennis courts, croquet lawn, Grade 1-listed chapel and the original Cowshed spa. Babington has 33 bedrooms which are spread across the Main House, Coach House, Walled Garden and Stable Block. Traditional English chintzes and soft, light colours combine with signature Soho House design touches like our famous freestanding baths in bedrooms, while open fireplaces and rich textiles complete the cosy feel.

 

 

Our signature white bedlinen is put to good use in Babington’s sumptuous bedrooms, where woven blankets and cushions in pastel tones add texture and warmth. Pillows are piled high on beds that boast the most comfortable mattresses you’ll ever sleep on. They are made in England by family firm Hypnos, who hold the Royal Warrant for supplying the Royal family with mattresses.

 

 

 

A cow shed might be an unlikely place to discover a range of award-winning bath, body and skincare products but that's exactly where ours was born - in the grounds of Babington House in 1998. A range of natural bath, body and skincare products was developed to be used in the spa treatments and for guests in the bedrooms, using ingredients that were inspired by Babington's Victorian walled garden.

 

 

Made in England, Cowshed’s products for bath, body and home harness the therapeutic properties of pure essential oils and the very best organic plant extracts to enhance your mood and deliver tangible benefits. Instead of a one-size-fits-all approach, Cowshed's ‘moods’ let you choose the perfect product for however you’re feeling. For example, if you’re burnt out and struggling to focus, the calming Lavender and uplifting Eucalyptus in our best-selling Knackered Cow range can help you unwind. Or if you’re stressed, try the ever-popular Grumpy Cow collection, which uses Bitter Orange and Grapefruit extracts to banish a bad mood, while doing lovely things to your skin and hair.

 

 


With 18 idyllic acres to explore, Babington’s grounds boast plenty of prime picnic spots – and then there’s the pool of course. Our Cabana range of unbreakable glassware is a staple of our outdoor spaces and has the weighty look and feel of real glass, making it perfect for pool parties and picnics.
