we stayed two nights at the Babington House. We stayed at the small room.
The room's name is small but it's not at all. It has two floors and very cosy and cool.
the pool, the bar, the restaurant, stuff, transport to the station, neighborhood, staff.....all perfect, hope we go and again :)

Hospitality absolutely nailed!
Nothing is to much effort for the staff and they have though of everything. We where feeling a bit worse for wares after our wedding the day before and this was the perfect place to wind down.

We have just returned from a 1 night stay at BH. I don't want to go on about the gorgeous room (coach house big), fabulous ambience, relaxing spa, good food, amazing service, friendly staff, lovely reception rooms...... If you are considering it for even one minute - book it. Everyone needs to stay at Babington once (or twice, or three times......)

Returned to Babington in September again to celebrate our second wedding anniversary - having married there in 2010. Words don't do this place justice - its quite simply the most amazing place in the UK . Laid back luxury at its best, delicious food, gorgeous decor, fixtures and fittings, the coolest staff you will meet anywhere in the world, not to mention the best cocktails and a spa you wished you lived 5 minutes down the road from! We love everything about this place and look forward to sleeping our way through every room in the house over the next 30 years of married life!

Room Tip: The playroom (bedroom) defies belief - book it it's worth every penny!

Went here for our 10th wedding anniversary and we weren't disappointed. From the moment we arrived the staff were brilliant, nothing was too much trouble. We had some treatments in the Cowshed - you need to book ahead. The afternoon tea was highly recommended by the staff and rightly so! We stayed in one of the stable block rooms which was lovely. There were more children there than we'd expected, but it was really relaxing and the only noise was provided by the dawn chorus. The heated outdoor pool was wonderful, and the huge sunbeds surrounding it were lovely. There's lots to do here, or you can just relax and enjoy the pampering. Looking forward to a return trip already!

Room Tip: Rooms in the stable block seemed to be quieter than in the main house.

What a wonderful hidden gem with its own chapel on site, they had candles everywhere giving a very romantic feel. we had a room in the stable block which was gorgeous with a huge bathroom and fab cow shed toiletries we loved. The bed was huge and so comfortable. The food was amazing I would certainly recommend this for a relaxing get away and wedding venue.

Room Tip: Stable block rooms were huge

Our second visit as a family to Babington. We booked last minute, always a risk, but landed a room in the stable block. Babington is one of those places that makes you feel relaxed within moment of your arrival. There is an understated style and a mood of indulgence in everything. Hire bikes, swim in the pool, borrow a tennis racket, luxuriate with a classy treatment, walk through woodland or just read on a lounger and watch the ducks on the lake. We did all these things. It is easy to pass away time and escape the pressures of working life.
The main rooms in the stable block are very generous and smartly decorated. the rain forest shower is undoubteldy extravagant on water but , God, it's good. There is a criticism... The kids bunk room is fine for small children but really a bit bland and unspecial for older children. Our 12 year old daughter was less than impressed on this visit. Perhaps something could be done to install more grown-up bedding, bedside table, lamp etc ... when an older child is coming to stay.
The restaurant is stylish and the food very good. You really taste the locally sourced ingredients. Again - you feel you are somewhere distinctive and special.
Advice - if we were going again, we would ask whether there was a wedding booked during our stay. The wedding party during our last visit seemed (perhaps understandably) to think the entire venue was theirs and the staff certainly seemed to be spending more time attending to wedding guests than other guests. We felt somewhat squeezed out.
A niggle - breakfast took forever to be served. Perhaps a criss on that weekend, but some guest left rather than wait, so long was the delay.
