baby and first time to have a baby moon. And let me tell you I was seriously
missing out! My husband and I had the pleasure of staying in Farnham Estate
& Spa last month and I had the pleasure of experiencing the most amazing
facial in their gorgeous Spa. Farnham is stunning to stay over night, but I
also think if that wasn’t possible it is perfect to go for the day have some
afternoon tea, pregnancy treatments, a swim and a gorgeous dinner! Farnham
offers so much more than just a night away! It would also be a fantastic venue
for a baby shower!
90 mins from Dublin, Farnham was very handy to get to. Its beautiful grounds
immediately add an essence of calm. The grounds are beautiful and although we
didn’t get a chance I’m sure to walk around on one of their trails would be
really enjoyable. Initially when we drove in I wondered why the hotel was so
far from the actual entrance, then it clicked. The views!! The view from the
hotel lobby and the room we stayed in was just picturesque. They are stunning!
It made me feel so relaxed and it makes the experience feel so private also. We
had a gorgeous 3 course meal in the restaurant. If you are booking the restaurant
I would highly recommend to book a table beside the huge windows and enjoy your
relaxing meal beside a stunning view! There was a variety of options on each
course to suit any palate. (Or the unpredictable cravings of an nine month
pregnant woman!) The food came quickly, it was hot and really tasty! The
deserts were huge!! (Did I mention Im pregnant?!)
Room- Neil and I had the pleasure of staying in the Deer Park Suite. When we
first walked in we couldn’t believe it. It is fab!! Two huge windows open the
room up to those stunning views and in the room is a huge four-poster bed. Arm
chairs and a TV and a nespresso machine (fantastic little extra in my opinion)
and then the best bit.. a HUGE bathroom. Again, two huge windows letting
relaxation flood in. A bath in the middle of the room with a view directly out
the window. A double sink and a huge double shower. Such a luxury and so
perfect for a very deserving mum to be!!
Espa Facial- On my last three pregnancies I never had the opportunity or the finances
for a pregnancy treatment. Or so I thought! I also always thought with not
being able to lie directly on my back or front I felt the therapist would be
limited in what they could do. Again, wrong!
booked in for an hour long facial and head massage with Espa products in the Spa.
I arrived a little early to fill out my form, a little about my health and
preferences re massage etc. I was then lead to a quiet and calm corridor and
lead to the changing rooms. Clean, quiet and a locker provided you need a euro
for the locker as members of the gym also use the changing rooms so don’t forget
that!! Bernie, my therapist then showed me to my room. As I mentioned, not
having a pregnancy treatment before I didn’t know what to expect. Bernie was
really amazing she explained everything to me- what she would do, what I should
wear and how I should position myself on the bed. She let me try and smell all
the products she would be using on my face and let me choose which ones I preferred.
For me this was unbelievable, being pregnant some smells are just not very
appealing to me so I really appreciated this little extra. Bernie also asked me
loads about my skin and I really felt she got a good understanding about what
way my skin has been behaving through this pregnancy. It made me feel very relaxed
and calm before the facial had even begun! The bed when I lay on it was warm
which was perfect and with the soothing music playing in the back round I was
already in heaven. The facial and head massage itself was just heaven. So relaxing
and my skin reacted so well to all the products Bernie had used. Shows just how
much she had really listened when I told her about my skin. I cannot recommend
Bernie enough, I had ticked medium pressure on my form and she was perfect. She
made me feel so relaxed and so comfortable that I didn’t want it to end!
Afterwards she lead me to a small relaxation room and a glass of water. I was
then met up with Neil for a swim in the beautiful pool. Surrounded by stunning
views the pool is incredible. They also have an infinity pool and I have say it
is breath taking! I really felt like a pinch me moment relaxing in the infinity
pool. It is nothing like I have ever been in before.
always thought through my previous pregnancies and this one that pregnancy treatments
didnt have much to offer. And they weren’t worth the money. I can honestly say
I was so wrong. A pregnancy treatment and babymoon is essential for any mum to
be. Even if you were to put away a little bit each week from the beginning of
your pregnancy and cash it in at the end when you have all the aches and pains
and really need it! I would advise any expectant mum to choose Farnaham for
your babymoon and if you do, I highly recommend getting a pregnancy treatment
from the talented Bernie, you can thank me later!
