Babington House
Somerset

Babington House is a beautifully appointed countryside retreat with all the comforts of city life. Think country club without pretentiousness and self-assurance minus the ego; this British Georgian house will leave you feeling pampered, relaxed and rejuvenated. Nestled amongst the Somerset countryside on 18 acres of perfectly maintained land and crisp green lawns, Babington House offers guests a truly British experience. From the tennis courts, cricket pitch and croquet lawn, to the walled garden, lake and private church, a stroll through the serene estate does wonders for even the most stressed mind and soul.

The property has 33 bedrooms with the ability to house 84 guests, some with views of the grounds and lakes and others with elegant fireplaces and freestanding baths, but all with country charm and chic British interiors. There are 3 dining areas for guests to choose from offering indulging mains such as lemon sole and rib eye steak and causal all day deli food including pizzas, burgers and sandwiches. Set within the estate is a 45-seat cinema screening current films and old favourites, as well as indoor and outdoor heated pools, a library, study and Cowshed Spa, ideal for working out and winding down.

Though the house and the setting are traditional the hotel has a very hip and almost cosmopolitan vibe, a winning combination and one which makes Babington House a popular choice for a style-conscious couples and families looking for a chic countryside retreat.

So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!

Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
