In Family

Bridge Tea rooms

Mother’s Day is fast approaching. If you are looking for some fun things to do with mum, or perhaps some pampering and relaxation then check out our top ten tips below:

1. Indulge in an afternoon tea

Sample an award-winning afternoon tea at the Bridge Tea Rooms in historic Braford on Avon. Afterwards why not take a walk along the tow path of the Kennet & Avon Canal and pop into the Tithe Barn.

2. Treat yourselves to a Michelin-starred meal

For an informal lunch or dinner, head to the Red Lion Freehouse, East Chisenbury, a pub with a Michelin star. Nearby you’ll also find the Harrow at Little Bedwyn, with its extensive wine collection.

3. Enjoy a concert in Marlborough

Pop along to St Peter’s Church at the end of Marlborough’s High Street for a Young Musician Concert.

Mompesson House

4. Take part in the Springtime discovery trail at Mompesson House

Spot the signs of spring around Mompesson House and garden with this new, family trail.

5. Make a trip to beautiful Lacock

Lacock village is a picture-postcard location. It’s easy to see why it’s often been used as a TV and film set. Stroll around the Abbey’s grounds spotting spring flowers and wildlife and perhaps buy a little something sweet from the village’s bakery or chocolate shop.

6. Recharge those batteries in the luxury surroundings of Lucknam Park Hotel

Relax and restore the mind on a well-being break at Lucknam Park Hotel. This oasis of calm offers a studio for yoga and pilates, mindfulness retreats and of course, treatments in the hotel’s award-winning spa.

Roly's Fudge Pantry

7. Sweeten up mum with a gift from Roly’s Fudge Pantry

Whether mum’s favourite flavour is vanilla clotted cream or perhaps maple and walnut, Roly’s Fudge Pantry offer beautifully wrapped gift boxes and bags of fudge which make a perfect treat for mum on Mother’s Day. The fudge is all made on-site using traditional methods and natural ingredients.

8. Place your bets on the animal races at Roves Farm

For a cute day out, check out the start of animal racing season at Roves Farm, near Swindon which begins on Mother’s Day. Plus mums get in free on 26 March when accompanied by a paying child.

9. Cruise along the Kennet & Avon Canal

Enjoy an afternoon tea special aboard the Kenavon Venture along the Kennet & Avon Canal. The tour departs Devizes Wharf at 2pm on 26 March. Pre-booking is essential.

Larmer Tree Gardens

10. Explore the Larmer Tree Gardens

The Larmer Tree will be opening for their 2017 season on Mother’s Day. Enjoy exploring these quirky gardens, with ornamental buildings, roaming peacocks and tea room. See if you can spot the fairies houses with mum too! Makes a nice spot to visit after a lunch at nearby eateries the King John Inn or the Royal Oak Inn.
