Hi all,
Turning to you all for help as we have just had to cancel our trip to Australia ☹️
We were due to go next week for 3 weeks but we’ve had to cancel as I have a low lying placenta and they have advised me not to fly!
So we’ve decided to have a Uk babymoon instead...
we’re thinking of potentially a luxury spa night in either Lime Wood Hotel and Spa or The Scarlet Hotel in Cornwall or Babington house.
But all of these would cost about £500 a night for the room and breakfast and dinner and so more by the time you’ve had a treatment!
Is this crazy... or is it worth doing it now as well never have a chance to do it again once baby has arrived!
Other ideas are an air bnb cottage on the coast or Port Lympe Hotel Safari Park?
What would you do if it was your last chance before baby? Is it worth spending a lot of money on a spa night or is this silly??
Thanks all

Why a shame you've had to cancel such an amazing sounding tripx. Port Lympne would be probably something I'd save for when the baby is here and a bit older, my 3 year old would love it!

If the original plan was Australia (and presuming you are getting a refund through your insurance) I'd go for a bit of a luxury option. Just bear in mind you can't use all the spa facilities when you're pregnant so might not get the full benefit of somewhere like Limewood.

Also, I found little babies are pretty portable so it's worth considering a holiday once s/he arrives!

Do it. We went to watley manor for ours.
None of your choices have a Michelin starred restaurant so I'd keep looking for one that does! (watley manor has that plus spa)
