Set in the idyllic Somerset countryside, the Georgian manor opened in 1998 as the first home away from home retreat; something our members love to this day
Our version of rural style honours the tradition of low-key elegance that the House's strong architecture demands, while also updating the notion of what an English country house can be. We first put a bath in Room 5 at Babington House and it's become something of a necessity for our members ever since. Comfort and warmth are also important; soft blankets are layered with big squishy cushions, and there are rugs under sofas and beds, inviting members to relax and unwind.
Natural surfaces and painted wood are softened with more traditional fabrics like linen, cotton, hemp and velvet, as well as delicate prints across wallpaper. We use the Walled Garden and surrounding countryside as colour inspiration, so there are lots of greys, greens, buttermilk cream and sage hues.
Traditional hand-painted wallpapers, oak four-poster beds, velvet sofas and antique furniture are found throughout our country House
Our Walled Garden was the birthplace of Cowshed, the inspiration and testing ground for our beauty and spa products made from botanicals. Today, the Babington Cowshed spa looks out over the tranquil space where you can indulge in a range of natural therapies.
