Treat her to tea and cake 

We don't know many mothers who would turn down a pot of tea and a slice of cake! Pop along to one of our tea rooms and choose from a selection of sweet treats.

Say I love you with flowers 

Mother's Day is also a great time to explore our gardens, as a multitude of spring bulbs begin to emerge. What's your mum's favourite flower? She might like our delightful daffodil displays to add a little sunshine to her day.

Make her feel extra special 

What better way to make mum feel special than to give her the VIP treatment? As well as treating her to a day out, many of our places offer guided tours and specialist talks on a topic that she might be passionate about.
