Which Cow are You?!

Cowshed is a luxurious  range of bath, body and skincare products which are true to their British Heritage. If you are looking for honest and natural products which do as they say on the label, smell divine and make you feel amazing then this is the range for you. As Nicola Moulton, Beauty Director of Vogue UK says:  “Cowshed is such a quintessentially British brand; it’s cool and laid back, doesn’t take itself too seriously, but beneath it all there’s the most amazingly effective treatments and products. I can see it becoming our biggest beauty export!”

 Horny Cow


Cowshed is part of the Soho House Group which was founded in 1995 by Nick Jones. Soho House started as a private members’ club in central London, and now boasts Clubs all over the world including, Berlin, Miami, New York and of course its flagship Spa, Babbington House in Somerset. Babbington House was purchased in 1998 and has become a luxury spa hotel and club. It was here that Cowshed was born. The idea to create the Cowshed range came about when sourcing natural products to use in the hotel.  To this day, there continues to be a little bit of Babbington in every single bottle in the form of a special herbal infusion sourced from the walled garden.

The Cowshed Philosophy – only 100% pure premium essential oils used, made from sustainable sources, no nasty preservatives or synthetics, suitable for vegetarians and Made in England.

Long Weekends

Easter and Spring is usually a time of such optimism – with bright new colours, better weather, and day trips out. However this year we may just have to wait a little longer for that spring like feel! With snow on the ground and freezing temperatures, most Easter Egg hunts will probably be held inside this year! Regardless of the weather, we  have a long weekend rapidly approaching (hurray), and for many it is the first break since Christmas. In today’s post, we thought we’d speak to Loveone’s owner Cathy and see what the long break holds for her.



Thoughts from Cathy:

In our house Easter is usually a time for spring cleaning. It’s a time for shaking off the winter by putting away the woolies and boots and mentally preparing for warmer times!

I’ll be thinking about the garden and pouring over aspirational magazines to create the dream outdoor space. I do it every year, although in reality my ideas don’t get much further than the sofa!




The house starts to smell different. The winter candles of amber and ginger that are almost finished will be replaced by the lighter scents of hyacinth and orchard. These bring with them romantic notions of warm breezes and summer days to come. Though we might need to use our imaginations a bit this year with the current weather!




It’s also about traditions with food being a big part of the Easter weekend. We’ll have hot cross buns on Good Friday which I might even have a go at making this year. I am really tempted by the delicious looking recipe in the April issue of The Simple Things  (now available at Loveone.). As a kid, my mum or gran would always make a Simnel cake – I love the marzipan but don’t like fruit cake but might even revisit that one this year.




And obviously the Easter eggs. Now the children are older the Easter egg hunt is no longer a feature of Easter Sunday but the eggs are still given and received. Then we all sit down to a family roast.  Hoping that we will soon be swapping the roasts for bbq’s and salads. Hoping that summer is just around the corner.




There’s an expectation about Easter…renewal, revitalising and almost like the new year is about to start again.

A Blogging We Will Go …..

Hello, we are so excited here at Loveone to be starting February with a new Blog.

Window Hello PushkinIMG_2486[1]


We primarily stock products which are designed and made in Britain. We are the only shop in town to stock recognisable British brands such as; Jellycat, Cowshed, Ham and True Grace. But we also offer products from the many talented designers and makers which the region has to offer, such as Jess Broad (Hello Pushkin) and Victoria Hall (Cluck Cluck). Loveone’s owner Cathy Frost, is regularly up in London searching out new designers or meeting with local Suffolk talent to ensure stock is kept fresh .


Residing within Loveone we also have:

Betty Blue Hat – sellers of all manner of retro and vintage homeware (upstairs)

Jenny Wren Yarns – the place to stop for anything knitting or crochet related (downstairs back)


We are deceptively larger than we look from the outside!


The aim is to use the Blog to keep you updated with the latest shop news, such as new products, designers and gift ideas. But also to update you on local issues and projects which Cathy and Loveone are passionate about, such as the St Peter’s Street markets which are organised jointly with ‘I Make Fun Stuff’, showcasing artists at Gallery one and doing our bit to support the high street to name but a few! We have so many things we want to talk about … you may not be able to get us to stop :-)


BTW – only 14 days until Valentines Day and we have just got the most amazing new jewellery in:
