About us

Cowshed started with a simple mission: to inject a little country calm into people's busy lives. Today our spas and treatment-led natural therapies are famous worldwide for their originality, character and uncompromising attitude to quality.

Where it all began

An old cowshed might seem an unlikely place for a spa and range of natural products to be born, but that's exactly what happened with us. Soho House founder Nick Jones created the original Cowshed spa at Babington House as a retreat within a retreat, extending the hospitality of the House into wellness and wellbeing for guests.

Perfumer Richard Howard developed products specifically for the spa and House using ingredients from the Victorian walled garden in the grounds. Their expert formulations and ecological and therapeutic values meant guests wanted to use them at home too, so we made that happen.

An International Community

Since opening that first spa back in 1998, our community has continued to grow. We now have spas across London and in Soho House locations everywhere from Berlin to Miami, London to New York – and most recently, Soho House Amsterdam – all with the relaxed, sociable atmosphere that’s so special to Cowshed.
