  • Giving back with the Woodland Trust


    Since opening our first spa at Babington House in Somerset in 1998, our guiding principle has been to take as much care of the earth as we do of people. We've always used wildcrafted ingredients and our recent refresh saw the introduction of packaging made from recycled coffee cups and carbon-neutral bioplastic. But we know we can do more.

    From the heart and soil of Somerset, our values have always been rooted in honest, natural therapies and ingredients.  This Christmas, we are looking to give back to our British woodlands by partnering with the Woodland Trust. Trees clean the air and lock up carbon emissions, support biodiversity by providing habitats for wildlife and they’re good for our wellbeing too. Partnering with the Woodland Trust aligns with our history, values and commitment to sustainability.

    If you're planning a trip to Amsterdam, make sure you punctuate cycling tours and walks along the Singel canal with a visit to our Cowshed spa. Located on the ground floor of Soho House Amsterdam, the spa offers indulgent treatments in the comfort of private rooms or you can sink into one of our mani-pedi chairs for a touch-up.

    We spoke to Spa Supervisor Claudia about how our Amsterdam spa sets itself apart:

    ‘I’ve been with Cowshed Amsterdam from the very beginning. Before that I spent several years working as a beautician. In 2008, I finished my studies and decided I wanted a new challenge. I worked and lived in Curacao, a Caribbean island, for six months to try something new and gain experience. Since then, I’ve worked for various hotels, salons and spas.

    All of our treatments get a lot of love but our most popular is definitely the Deep Tissue massage. Our manicures and pedicures are close runner ups. As for our products, the Deodorant Spray is always a favourite, as well as our Stretch Mark Balm and the Relax Bath and Shower Gel with eucalyptus and lavender.

Designed to save you both time and money, both also make excellent gifts that can be enjoyed well into the new year. Here's everything you need to know about our two new spa packages.
