Mother’s day is the perfect opportunity to show your mum just how special she is! The Cotswolds offers a beautiful location to treat your mum this Mother’s Day, with miles of spectacular countryside and plenty of exciting activities on offer. To help you plan a memorable day, here are some of the best ways to spend Mother’s Day in the Cotswolds:
Afternoon tea is an extremely popular Mother’s Day activity, and for good reason! Booking an afternoon tea gives you the chance to spend quality time with your mum while indulging in some delicious British classics like finger sandwiches and scones with clotted cream and jam. Many quality venues offer afternoon tea in stunning surroundings such as beautiful outdoor courtyards and luxurious manor rooms. You can easily combine afternoon tea with a walk around a stately home or stroll in the gardens. You can also choose to make your afternoon tea experience even more special by adding a glass of prosecco or champagne. Keep in mind that venues tend to get booked up way in advance of Mother’s Day, so make sure you book as early as possible.
The Cotswolds is considered an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and is thought to be one of the best walking destinations in the UK. On a trip to the Cotswolds, you can find breathtaking natural scenery, incredible walking trails, and plenty of fun activities like horse riding, cycling, and golfing. If your mum enjoys being outdoors, then planning a hike in the Cotswolds can be a great way to spend time together enjoying nature. You could plan your walking route to include a lunch stop at a picturesque country pub, or pack a picnic full of all your mum’s favourite food items.
A spa day is an ideal way to treat your mum (and yourself!) and enjoy some much-needed peace and relaxation. You will also be able to spend quality time together without everyday distractions like smartphones and social media. There are plenty of venues offering great value spa day packages on Mother’s Day. Many of these include extras like luxury spa treatments, afternoon tea, or dinner to make the experience even more memorable. If you truly want to go all out this Mother’s Day, then why not book an overnight spa break and treat your mum to a luxurious weekend to remember. Spas are another extremely popular activity on Mother’s Day, so be sure to book early to secure a spot.
If your mum enjoys a glass of wine (or two!), then a wine tasting experience can be a great way to learn more about the wine-making process, have lots of fun, and enjoy different wines from around the world. Fortunately, there are several beautiful vineyards in the Cotswolds including Three Choirs Vineyard, Woodchester Valley Vineyard, and Poulton Hill Estate. All of these venues offer fun and informative wine tasting tours, along with idyllic views over the surrounding countryside. You can easily combine your wine tasting experience with a relaxing lunch or sunset dinner overlooking the vineyard. Some wineries may be offering special events this Mother’s Day, so be sure to check ahead and book in advance.
