Mother's Day is on Sunday 15 March 2015, why not spoil mum and treat her to a day out she'll never forget at places we look after. Spend some precious time together as a family in beautiful surroundings and join in with special Mother's Day events.

Have fun discovering parenting practices and mothers’ cures from times past through our living history presentations. You can also discover the stories of notable matriarchs and women who once lived in the historic houses in our care.

Create a beautiful posy of spring flowers for mum to take home or get stuck in as a family with seasonal baking and planting. There’ll also be the chance to get creative at craft workshops and make a Mother’s Day card or unique gift to celebrate the day.

Our tea-rooms and restaurants will be cooking up delicious delights so why not treat mum to a sumptuous afternoon tea featuring traditional favourites such as homemade scones or take her out for lunch and see what’s on our seasonally-inspired menus.

Top off your day with a stroll around the blooming gardens we look after which will be full of spring colour. Your visit will not only show mum just how special she is, it also helps us to carry on looking after special places for everyone to enjoy.
