OUR HOUSES ARE PRIVATE PLACES
Our members’ privacy is very important, so please don’t bother anyone you don’t know. Posting about fellow members on social media is not allowed either.
KEEP IT CASUAL
We’re a private members’ club for people working in the creative industries and we have a relaxed dress code. Please make sure your guests know this too.
LOOK AFTER YOUR MEMBERSHIP CARD
Your card is your responsibility and should only be used by you; it cannot be transferred or borrowed by anyone else. If you lose it, please let us know.
PHONES AND LAPTOPS
Communal spaces in the House are phone call-free areas, so please keep your devices on silent. If you need to take or make a call, please do it quietly in the reception area or outside bar terrace. We kindly ask you to put your laptops away after 7pm everywhere except the Library and Study.
GUESTS ARE WELCOME
Babington House members can sign in up to three guests at a time. If you would like an extended guest list, we will always try to accommodate where possible. We advise you call ahead to be on the safe side. Remember, you are responsible for your guests’ behaviour, so please keep an eye on them and make sure they call it a night when you do.
GUESTS AT THE POOL
The pool at Babington House is reserved for our members and bedroom guests. Children must either be members or bedroom guests to swim. Child members and child bedroom guests may swim between 9.30am-11.30am and 3.30pm-6pm Monday to Friday, excluding bank holidays. Children who are bedroom guests may additionally swim between 9.30am-11.30am and 3.30pm-6pm on Saturdays, Sundays and bank holidays.
FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED
There’s generally no need to book, but if you’re planning ahead we do take reservations in The Orangery, Deli Bar and Log Room. If you would like to eat with more than three guests, please make a booking in advance for a larger table.
Babington House is a club for adults, but we are child-friendly. Children are welcome throughout the House at most times, though we do request that the restaurant areas are for over 10s only after 7pm; that children do not eat in the Bar at any time; and that the Bar is adults only after 7pm.
Teeny House and The Loft are members-only spaces. Child members over one can visit Teeny House for a maximum of one hour a day, and must be signed in and out by an adult. Child bedroom guests can be left for a maximum of two hours, twice a day. The Loft is for children over eight. Access to Teeny House and The Loft are on a first come, first served basis.
Dogs are welcome in the gardens and in the Library at Babington House, but please keep them on a lead. Please do not leave pets in your car. Assistance dogs are, of course, welcome everywhere.
Please note that our gym, steam room and sauna are only for members and bedroom guests only. Members must be over 16 to use the gym. House Gym is open 7am-10pm seven days a week.
