Celebrate 25 years of Cowshed at our Houses around the world
With wellness-boosting treatments, indulgent products and spa credit when you book a bedroom, we’ve got everything you need to experience the best of Cowshed
Monday 15 May 2023 By Chloe Lawrance
2023 marks 25 years since Babington House first opened its doors in the Somerset countryside – which means we’re also celebrating 25 years of Cowshed. Born at Babington, the very first Cowshed spa was built in a renovated milking shed back in 1998. These days, Cowshed has 13 spa locations worldwide, with an extensive range of expert formulas to bring a little relaxation home, too. And right now, we’re giving members the chance to celebrate 25 years of Cowshed at our Houses, with 10% off bedroom rates and £75/ $75/ €75 per day to go towards any Cowshed spa treatments or products.
Back when that first Cowshed spa opened its doors, it was with one mission: to inject a little country calm into the busy lives of members visiting Babington House. A retreat within a retreat. At the time, spas had a reputation for being almost clinical. Soho House’s Founder, Nick Jones, knew he wanted to do things a little differently, instead creating a space that was comfortable, relaxing and warm – an extension of everything members loved about the Houses. Still to this day, step into a Cowshed spa and you’ll find an atmosphere that’s relaxed, with therapists that are knowledgeable and friendly, whether you’re in Chicago or Shoreditch.
The need-to-know treatments
Treatments in the spas have been refined and perfected over the past 25 years, with each location providing its own unique menu of permanent offerings and pop-up residencies. And there are a few that have gained almost legendary status among those in the know. The Ultimate Cowshed Manicure and Ultimate Cowshed Pedicure are more than just your average treatments – hydrating hand and foot masks, and a tension-relieving scalp and shoulder massage elevate the whole experience. Likewise, the Salt Scrub & Massage pairs our Signature Massage with a full body exfoliation for an ultra-relaxing 90 minutes.
To celebrate 25 years of Cowshed, each spa across the globe is also offering the 25 Years: Deep Tissue Massage with Hyperice. And exclusively at Babington House, members and guests can indulge in Babington’s Botanical Facial using plants sourced directly from the Walled Garden. Babington members can also book into acupuncturist Ross J Barr’s latest residency at the House. On Tuesday 23 and Wednesday 24 May, he will be on hand to deliver Five Element Acupuncture, which uses ancient techniques to relieve stress, anxiety and low energy levels.
