Babington House

Babington HouseI’m not sure where to begin, or how to do proper justice in describing just how much I love the English country-side hotel, Babington House. It’s truly one of those places you really must see for yourself. Of course, you can see photos on-line, and you may already be familiar with the style and chic of the sister hotels (of the Soho House family), but nothing will prepare you for how wonderful your time will be at the beautiful Babington House. It’s almost too good to be true.

Babington House is a private members club and hotel/spa set on 18 beautiful acres in Sommerset, England (about 2 1/2 hours outside London). It is also the home of the well-known Cowshed spa and famous range of Cowshed products.

It is posh without being stuffy, it is convenient without loosing its cool, and it is totally kid-friendly without being obnoxious or patronizing. We always spend a long weekend at Babington House every year in June, and it is without a doubt my most treasured weekend of the year. (more…)
