The last chance for some seriously relaxing time before your baby is born, the babymoon holiday is one of the newest travelling trends, and what a brilliant idea indeed. We mostly hear about expectant parents moving house, undertaking some massive D.I.Y project and stressing themselves out - just when they should be enjoying every spare moment they have. A babymoon can provide the antidote to all the rushing about and getting your house ready for your newest arrival, so seize this opportunity when you have the chance.
One of the most relaxing things a mum to be can do is book a mummy-to-be-massage with My Personal Sanctuary, your therapist will come to your holiday house and give you a facial, back, neck and shoulder massage with lovely Neil’s Yard Organic Remedies, then massage your legs and feet and finish with a hand and arm massage – utter bliss.
Once your skin is glowing and your body rested why not head out towards Helston to visit the Frugi outlet store. A local Cornish company, selling scrumptious organic baby clothes and wonderfully practical and stylish breast feeding clothes for the mum to be. The outlet shop is a fantastic hidden gem, well worth a visit.
Then you should just relax, enjoy your last trimester by doing some of the things that will be tricky to do with a new born. Simple things. Peaceful things. Quiet things. Read a book – we’ve chosen some of the best properties to curl up, relax and settle down with your favourite book. Ruan Dinas, on the banks of the Fal River has spectacular views and lovely comfy sofas, excellent for an afternoon of peace and quiet warmed by the Aga. Nanquidno House, down on the rugged coast near Land’s End is quiet, remote and with a fabulous roll top bath – ideal for a leisurely soak with a great book. The Coast House in St.Ives looks down over the harbour and has a wonderfully long sofa to stretch out on and enjoy the view.
Take this time to enjoy your pregnancy. A holiday is Cornwall will give you the opportunity to unwind without any of the stresses that being at home brings. Take it easy, pamper yourself and relax. Milly&Martha properties are perfectly suited for your babymoon; comfortable, maintained to a high standard and away from your busy life at home.
