Who our clients are and what they say about us

We make no secret of the fact that we are selective about who we work with. We are very lucky to be in a position where 100% of our hospitality clients have come to us because they were looking for ‘something new’ for their own discerning clientele. Below are a few examples of what our partners say about us:

L’Enclume – 2 * Michelin Restaurant with 17 rooms. Awarded Best in UK since 2013

“We chose Sedbergh Soap Co. because they are local and because of their total commitment
to product purity, high quality and design; an ideal partner for us.” [since 2010]



Tom and Lisa Lewis, Monachyle Mhor Hotel

“We pride ourselves on sourcing the best Scottish ingredients and products for our guests. When we couldn’t find any toiletries here in Scotland, which matched our high standard, we were delighted to discover Sedbergh Soap just over the border in Cumbria. We have partnered with Sedbergh Soap Co. since 2007 and their unique products are still the best”.



Susan Fischer, Fischer’s Baslow Hall – Hotel with Michelin-starred restaurant

"At Fischer's we try to offer the best product we possibly can, and for twenty years we provided guests with an internationally recognised range of toiletries [Molton Brown].  However a couple of years ago [in 2011] we began to look for a natural product which was kind to skin and to the environment, and which was manufactured in England.  In addition, we wanted packaging that would be less wasteful.  Sedbergh Soap Co. has ticked all the boxes and the delicious Lemongrass scent is unisex.  The Sedbergh Soap products have been very well received by our clients and many of them are taking the details home to buy online."


John and Susan Rudden, Grassington House Hotel

“We chose Sedbergh Soap for our five star hotel because the products are 100% pure and totally unique. We like the old fashioned personal service we receive from a local family business.” [since 2010]



Neil Miller-Chalk, General Manager, Dolphin Square

“Dorthe has created something quite special for The Spa In Dolphin Square; a series of bespoke Moroccan inspired handmade products with unique blends of fragrance that totally fit my concept. I am delighted”. [since 2011]

Recommended for luxury hotels, national awards and industry recognition

Sedbergh Soap is actively recommended by AA Inspectors and Visit Britain assessors. In May 2012, Visit Britain requested our products and presented Sedbergh Soap Co.’s range of hospitality products as ‘the new brand for luxury hotels’, at their internal conference for all Assessors for England and Wales.

Sedbergh Soap Company was founded by Dorthe Pratt in 2007; just 12 months later the business won the acclaimed National Business Start-ups Award and has not looked back since. Their brand and unique approach has seen Sedbergh Soap Co. win the Platinum Awards for natural soap in 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014. In addition, they also won ‘Natural Beauty Awards 2013’ as well as winning both Gold and Silver in 2014’ and Gold again in 2015. Sedbergh Soap has won Best Product Awards for Shampoo and Bath Bubbles as well as Best Pregnancy Product, also in 2015. Sedbergh Soap has won a further two national awards in 2016, taking the total to 15.

Nationwide debate on 'The Future of British Manufacturing'

In 2012, Dorthe was invited to be a panellist at a national conference ‘The Future of Manufacturing in Britain’, organised by EEF (the manufacturers organisation). Other panellists included Manufacturing Controller at Jaguar Landrover, Global Supply Chain Director at PZ Cussons, Head of Manufacturing at Barclays Bank, and an economist from Whitehall.

Dorthe has been quoted by several national organisations and the press for her contribution to the debate.
