Baby-Friendly Boltholes

It was my birthday last week, and as I’m going back to full-time work soon, we decided to go away for a long weekend to celebrate. We considered heading off to Morocco, but now Ivo’s more wriggly, four hours on a flight didn’t sound relaxing, and we’d left it too late to get properly cheap flights, so we decided on a UK break instead. Searching online for baby-friendly hotels, I came across a fab website – Baby-Friendly Boltholes. It’s got tonnes of great suggestions for hotels and self-catering accommodation, all easily searchable, with useful categories like whether they supply baby equipment, toys, childcare, play areas, pre-arrival grocery shopping, and the all-important spa treatments! We quickly discovered Bruern Cottages in the Cotswolds. I was sold by the promise of gorgeous interiors, champagne in the fridge {included!}, indoor pool, nursery equipment, toys and books. There’s even a heated play cabin and outdoor play area with swings, and they provide swim nappies in the swimming pool changing rooms. We had a fantastic time, and I couldn’t recommend Bruern Cottages more. What are your recommendations for holidaying with a baby? Last summer we went on a Sensatori Holiday with Thomson to Greece, and that was fabulous as well. For more pictures of our break, follow Before the Baby on Instagram.
