Time for tea
You can't beat a catch-up over traditional afternoon tea, so head to Cliveden this Mothering Sunday for a perfectly prepared selection of finger sandwiches, freshly baked scones with home-made jam and clotted cream, bite-size cakes, pastries and delicacies, and full-bodied and aromatic Cliveden blend teas, including a glass of Champagne and a gift for Mum. Afterwards, you can enjoy a leisurely stroll around the beautiful estate.
Book yourself onto a course with your mum and cook up a storm. Join Colline for a three-hour macaron masterclass at the Honesty Cookery School, where you will learn how to make macarons using the French Meringue method. Or book onto one of Jen Roach's Fearless in the Kitchen courses. You'll have a great day and take home some tasty dishes.
Take a cruise
Enjoy a twist on your classic Sunday lunch venue with a cool cruise, ideal to celebrate with all the family this Mother's Day. You'll depart from Windsor and take in the beautful scenery while enjoying a roast dinner. It will be one you'll all remember.
Visit a National Trust property and explore their glorious spring gardens. See Cliveden's daffodils throughout the grounds and displayed in the Ferneries. At Basildon Park, cheerful buttercups and daffodils cover the parkland. Choose one of four way-marked paths through the woodland and admire violets, cowslip, cherry blossom and primroses along the way. Basildon Park's new exhibition, India & Me, showcases stories from the local communities of Reading and is not to be missed!
Peace and tranquility
The Me, Myself and I solo spa break at Donnington Valley Hotel & Spa is ideal for individuals looking for some quality alone time. Perfect for mums who would love some peace and quiet this Mother's Day, the package includes a 25-minute treatment, full use of the '5 Bubble' spa facilities, a Decléor gift set, dinner, an overnight stay and breakfast.
