It’s the first Mother’s Day of a new decade free from the limits of lockdown and we think it’s a great opportunity to reaffirm to the most important woman in your life just how much you care. On Sunday 27 March, show Mum how much she means to you and treat her to a delectable meal in luxurious settings, enjoy a walk with marvellous views and purchase a gift from one of our independent shops.
Treat your mum to a well-deserved relaxing break this Mothering Sunday against the gorgeous backdrop of the Malvern Hills. We have so much on offer from beautiful independent eateries, cafes and bars, gift and card shops and talented florists sure to make your Mum’s day that little bit more special.
If your Mum is into picturesque rambling, The Abbey Hotel offer a two night walking break complete with accommodation, dinner, packed lunch and walking maps. Or, if she’s more into a relaxing activity, traditional afternoon tea is served daily in Priory View Lounge Bar featuring freshly baked scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam, a choice of finger sandwiches and cakes and a pot of the Abbey’s afternoon blend tea. You can also sit down with the whole family for a 3 course carvery lunch, and Mums will be treated to a glass of fizz. If you can’t make it on Mother’s Day, you can treat your Mum to a gift voucher. Abbey Hotel offers gift vouchers range from relaxing spa days in London to traditional Afternoon Tea by the Thames in Royal Windsor.
Lunch and Afternoon Tea Treats
Aldwyn’s at Ellerslie are offering delicious afternoon tea and Sunday lunch menus. Or gather all your family together for a sumptuous Mother’s Day lunch in bright, light surrounds and top it all off with a tipple for an afternoon that won’t be soon forgotten at The Cottage in the Wood. Head to The Mulberry Tree for a Sunday carvery because nothing says family-time like getting together for a hearty Sunday Roast.
Mother’s Day is a special occasion and many pubs will be pulling out all the stops to treat Mum with a selection of appetising food, charming drinks and warming pub atmosphere.
Why not spend a day surrounded by flowers and learning a new skill. The Colwall Park Hotel are laying on a flower arranging workshop on March 24, complete with an abundance of fresh flowers, nibbles and a glass of prosecco. Call 01684 540000, or visit ticketsource.co.uk/colwall-park-hotel for more information and to book places.
Gifts, Cards and Jewellery
Of course, family time is a gift in itself. But if your Mum wants something shiny to unwrap, or you can’t be together on Mothers Day, take advantage of the numerous gift and flower shops across The Malverns. View your options for gift, jewellery and cards here: Shop Local: Gifts, Cards and Jewellery – Visit The Malverns.
Florists and Garden Centres
You can order a blooming bouquet from one of our friendly florists or visit one of our nurseries and garden centres to buy some outdoor plants for your Mum’s garden. Drive through some lovely countryside to reach Holloways to purchase some garden furniture and garden ornaments and stop for lunch at The Glasshouse Cafe.
Malvern is a world-renowned spa town, so why not treat Mum to a pampering at one of the many luxury spas around The Malverns.
