A few weeks ago, at 30 weeks pregnant, I planned what would be the last cheeky getaway that Andrew and I will have before our little pudding arrives. Having put every penny we earn into getting the house prepared and saving for a long 9 months of no salary, our budget was somewhat modest. So a lavish last minute babymoon to the Bahamas was hardly on the cards. Instead, we settled for Hull – a dockland town on the East Coast of England.
My main priority was to find somewhere with a pool where we could take a leisurely swim, a nice hotel room where we could relax with a movie, and a romantic place to dine that we may not necessarily be able to do as easily once the baby arrives. So gleeful I was to discover a great hotel deal at the Village Hotel Hull, complete with indoor pool – and an unusual ‘under the sea’ restaurant in the heart of Hull’s aquarium, The Deep. Sold!
