Hügaa Founder Nicola Walker

“My name is Nicola and I feel lucky to call Bath my home.  This city, steeped in history, is somewhere I relish returning to after travels near and far.  I continue to be surprised by the hidden gems and details I stumble across while wandering the cobbled streets. As a family, we while away many hours exploring historical venues and adventuring in the parks. Did you know there are over thirty play areas spread across the city?  Needless to say, Bath is worth a visit. 

I am an experienced primary school teacher and the founder of Hügaa Babysitting. Being new to parenthood and a lover of travel, I launched Hügaa in 2017 to specialise in providing a modern babysitting solution for families whilst away from home.

Our name Hügaa, something we often get asked about, is inspired by the Danish word “hygge”. The word means being cosy and comfortable, giving the feeling of contentment.  Something that epitomises our approach.

An integral part of our service is the cutting-edge technology, which ensures the booking process is quick and simple. We take card details at the time of booking, removing the hunt for an ATM or an awkward cash exchange.

Leaving your children in a new place can be daunting. I’ve left no stone unturned to ensure that our babysitters are the best professionals to provide peace-of-mind. Our Hügaa babysitters are all highly experienced in childcare, hold enhanced DBS clearance, are reference checked and are personally interviewed by me to ensure they are friendly and would be someone I would happily leave my own toddler with.

We send our babysitters’ personal profiles to our clients, so they know more about who is coming to take care of their little ones.  All our babysitters are warm, flexible and accommodating. Whether it is taking a child to the park, sitting in silence so a sleeping baby isn’t disturbed or reading the same favourite bedtime story twenty times; we will do our best to accommodate any special requests!

So when you’re planning your stay at The Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa, do get in touch. Whatever the occasion, whether it be a romantic dinner, attending a wedding or enjoying a spa treatment, book your Hügaa Babysitter at”
