Spa in a Cowshed?
In planning a recent trip to the UK, I came across a spa called The
Cowshed Spa. This I had to see. Was it in a barn? I was in for a delightful visit and a few surprises.
Cowshed Spa is actually a chain of spas. The very first spa opened at Babington House, Somerset, UK in 1998… in the old cow shed. Since then they have stayed true to their vision to offer beautiful spas. Cowshed products are organic based and designed to be effective.
In addition to Cowshed spas, they are also located in the Soho group chain in the US, the UK and Europe.
Cowshed Spa, Trebetherick, Cornwall
I visited the Cowshed Spa in the lovely San Moritz hotel in Trebetherick in
Cornwall, UK. A beautiful, coastal location, it teems with tourists during the summer. When the crowds die down, the locals book again. They have the enviable position of little to no slow season.
Cowshed calls themselves “sociable” and for good reason. Beautiful and elegant, the mood is relaxed, friendly and social. You’re invited to come with friends, have services, visit and make new friends. They’re famous for detail manicure-pedicure area invites chatting and visiting.
Purposeful with a bit of whimsey
Treatment and product names are whimsical… Udderly Delightful, Udderly
Gorgeous. But don’t let the names fool you. Each product meets a purpose. All have high levels of essential oils for therapeutic results. Botanicals come from their own gardens.
Seven different mood blends focus on client’s needs and the goal of the therapy. Tired, try Knackered Cow. Stressed – Grumpy Cow. In a well, playful mood – Horny Cow. The list goes on.
Dirty Cow, Grubby Cow or Mucky Cow wash skin clean and leave it conditioned.
The treatment menu is impressive. Face, body, hands feet, waxing and a variety of packages. Men get their own special attention treatments. The Udderly Gorgeous treatments were the most unique. Indulgent, relaxing, pampering and designed for clients that are 12 weeks pregnant or more.
They have taken every need of the pregnant client, and their safety, into consideration. Furniture, cushioning, positioning. After the first trimester, Moms-to-be may have services until the big event.
Post-delivery treatments are also available to help the new mom de-stress… and get her skin back in condition.
When you are visiting Cornwall, London, Somerset, Oxfordshire, or near a Soho property, relax and have a little fun at the Cowshed.
