Inspired by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s recent ‘Babymoon’, Rudding Park, Harrogate, has launched the perfect experience for expectant parents looking to spend some relaxing time together before the birth of their baby. Couples enthused by headlines the Royal couple have had a luxurious mini-break ahead of the birth of their first child can now book some quality time of their own, with an overnight stay and spa treatments at Rudding Park.
Expectant parents booking the Babymoon Experience can unwind with an overnight stay in a Follifoot Wing Room, with access to the Roof Top Spa from 3pm on the day of arrival to 11am on the day of departure.
At the spa they can escape to the luxurious couples’ room and experience a 25 minute Babymoon Bath Ritual. Here they can relax and bathe by candlelight in the copper bath and enjoy a Babysecco ‘for her’ and a glass of Champagne ‘for him’.
The Bath Ritual is followed by 50-minute side-by-side treatments, a Mother-to-be Hydration Facial and a 50-minute treatment of choice from the Spa Day treatment menu for the future Father.
Following the treatments couples can explore the Escape Zone with invidual rooms to help achieve optimum relaxation; the ‘Visual Zone’ to watch a video mood wall with scenes of lapping waves, wildflower meadows and breathtaking mountainscapes; the ‘Audio Zone’ to help centre mind and body listening to meditation and sound healing tracks through personal headsets; the ‘Mind Zone’, to help state of mindfulness with mandala colouring therapy or simply just take time out in the ’Sleep Zone’ a space designed for complete peace, quiet and deep relaxation.
As part of their Babymoon, couples can also experience: Sunlight Therapy which is very relaxing for the mother-to-be and can help lower blood pressure and reduce pregnancy induced aches and pains; an Oxygen Pod that helps strengthen the immune system and reduce tiredness; dry salt inhalation to improve breathing and achieve healthier skin, sounder sleep and overall wellness.
Dinner at Clocktower is also included, along with a full Yorkshire breakfast.
