Hotel Review

“Down a tree lined avenue in an ancient landscape lies the beautiful honey coloured Georgian house that is Babington. Created over twenty years ago, Babington was the first country house hotel opened by the Soho House group and the first of its kind, a country house hotel with a difference. The thirty three rooms are individually designed varying from those with antique four poster beds, free standing roll top baths and open fires to more contemporary rooms found in the Coach House and Stable Block. The attention to detail is notable. Crystal glasses on a silver tray with a range of ready made cocktails, mixers and fresh citrus fruits. Enormous beds, gorgeous linens, fluffy grey robes, power showers, Cowshed toiletries galore, tea and coffee of every description, homemade biscuits...Staying at Babington is rather like visiting an old friend. The staff are relaxed yet efficient; stuffy has no place here. The William Morris wallpapered bar is always buzzing and creates the most fab cocktails. The elegant Orangery serves delicious breakfasts where you can find everything from the best granola ever, to rhubarb and pistachio porridge and kippers. The dinner menu is unassuming with a modern, playful touch. Not to mention afternoon tea - scrumptious! And after all this eating and drinking, there's plenty of activities on offer: the grounds are beautifully laid out with walks around the lake, there are two pools (one indoor), steam and sauna rooms, tennis courts, gym, bicycles and even a cricket pitch. For those in search of some pampering the Cowshed Spa offers a huge range of treatments and looks out onto a gorgeous walled kitchen garden where much of the produce used in the hotel is grown. Little ones are not forgotten either with the Teeny House, a staffed play house for under 8s and the Loft, for older children. If you haven’t got to that stage yet you can even get married here in the wonderful grade 1 listed Church of St. Margaret. Don’t think about it, just do it!”
