NileGuide Expert tip:
If you can't afford to stay here drop in for lunch or afternoon tea.
For the ultimate in indulgence and relaxation while visiting Bath, check into Babington House. Babington is a private members' club with a countrywide reputation for relaxing stays, and the country mouse sister to sleek London media hangout, Soho House.
The entire house is furnished sumptuously, from the walled garden rooms to the rooms in the attic of the main house, and the log room, orangery, library and poolroom.
Send the kids off to the crèche or book a babysitter, so that you can indulge in the Cowshed Spa safe in the knowledge that the kids are having a great time too. The pampering continues when you get back to your room, because it is stocked with all the Cowshed products you could ever wish for.
Wear whatever you want, enjoy a delicious meal, kick back with a book in the library, or catch a movie in the 45-seat cinema. Whether you stay here for a night or a month you will leave feeling thoroughly rejuvenated.
