Celebrate your mum! Ideas for Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day this year falls on the last day of March – the 31st, so if you’re heading up to the Lakes and celebrating Mother’s Day,  why not stay the weekend and really indulge mum?

You could book in for a weekend break from the Friday to Monday, or if you’ve a bit more time, we have 4 and 7 day breaks available. These breaks  still  include our special free hamper and voucher for a local pub..

We’ve lots of lovely lodges to choose from,  and mum might enjoy a hot tub to relax in, or one where she can bring the pooch.

To add to the treat, we are offering a FREE Cumbrian Food Hamper for March bookings of over 4 or 7 nights,  and a voucher for 20% off food at the iconic Queens Head, Troutbeck.

If you can’t make that weekend, why not treat her to a Gift Voucher, that she can choose when she’d like to come and stay?  They last for 2 years and you can download it yourself, or have one posted out in a gift envelope.

If your mum likes afternoon tea, there are scores of places to try in the Lakes.  From posh hotels, to cute cafes, fabulous farms,  tea-rooms and pubs, and distilleries and breweries, everyone is busy making their own afternoon tea with a twist.

A few of our favourites are The Gaddum at Brockhole,  Low Sizergh Barn, near Kendal;  Chesters by the River,  The Fizzy Tarte in Bowness.  Hawkshead Brewery & Beer Hall in Staveley also who do Cumbrian ‘Tapas’ and the Wild Boar at Crook, near Kendal who offer a more savoury afternoon tea.


Are you  looking for a traditional style, with sandwiches, cakes and of course scrumptious scones and cream?   Or would rather have a ‘savoury style’, which focuses on savoury rather than sweet, and can be washed down with a beer, instead of fizz?   Cumbrian ‘Tapas’  might be more to your tastebuds; there is something to choose from in every village and town.

Whatever you’re after you’ll not go hungry in Cumbria.   The only issue will be being spoilt for choice..

If the weather’s good, why not take mum out on a Lake Cruise – choose from Windermere, Ullswater, Coniston and Derwentwater.
