Natural Baby Box has teamed up with Well Being In The Wild at Lime Cross Nursery to offer you and your baby an unforgettable half day retreat. Mummy’s with newborns- 1 year old babies will gain the most from this retreat day.
An opportunity to spend some well-deserved quality time with your baby, making memories that you will cherish.
Parenting is so rewarding but it is also challenging, and we understand that whilst you are busy looking after your baby, it is often hard to find time for yourself. You need looking after too. Relax, unwind and enjoy some special time with your baby whilst we look after you both.
Set overlooking an idyllic lake, this unique half day retreat offers you an opportunity to step away from the housework, and everyday challenges of parenting. Spend some time with your baby surrounded by a wealth of nature, look out for the resident baby Moorhens and ducklings, romping alpacas, beautiful soaring buzzards and maybe even the allusive kingfisher.
You will enjoy a delicious and energising brunch, home mad by a fun and colourful sensory class to nurture your baby’s development. An optional support session, including an opportunity to share your experiences and concerns as a new parent, an informative house plant workshop on how to bring a little bit of nature into your home for good health and of course, tea and cake by the lake as you and your baby take in the fresh air and beauty of your surroundings.
This wonderful retreat has been tailored for you and your baby to ensure we have thought of everything, so you don’t have to. Our baby change facilities stocked with luxurious baby products available for your convenience, a buggy park, bottle warming facilities and the beautiful shepherds hut hideaway as a quite zone to relax and breast or bottle feed your baby in comfort and peace.
