8 Perfect Ways to Spend Mothers Day in the Lake District

21st February 2022

Mother’s Day is right around the corner so it’s time to make plans to treat that special mother in your life. Why not do something a little different and treat her to one of our breaks in the Lake District right here at the Daffodil Hotel & Spa?

Spend quality time together, enjoying the all stunning views the Lake District has to offer while being truly pampered by our friendly team. We’ve rounded up the very best ways to spend your time in the Lake District, whether that’s just for one day or the whole Mother’s Day weekend.

1 - Lake Windermere cruise

The Lake District is, of course, known for its lakes, so why not take full advantage while you’re in the area and take to the water to celebrate Mother’s Day? Windermere Lake Cruises offer exciting cruises around the lake so you can see the area in style. You can choose from a number of different cruise routes so you can take in the stunning views in your way.

2 - Enjoy a fine dining experience

Mother’s Day only comes around once a year, so why not make the most of it and treat your mother to a Lake District fine dining experience? There are several fine dining restaurants to choose from, even restaurants that hold a Michelin Star, so you will be most likely spoilt for choice deciding which venue to take your special guest. 

Whether you’re looking for a delightful evening meal or a tasty Sunday lunch menu, the three restaurants we recommend you treat mum too are:

Each of the restaurants offers a spectacular menu within beautiful surroundings, providing a dining experience that you won’t soon forget. This is a great way to show that special mother in your life just how special they are.

You could also relax and unwind at our very own fine dining restaurant, which features a variety of delectable foods to try. Sit back and enjoy the views while eating some of the most incredible local foods and drinks.  

3 - Visit William Wordsworth’s home

The famous English poet William Wordsworth once lived in Grasmere in a quaint little cottage that you can still visit today. Dove Cottage has been preserved so you can see how Wordsworth once lived when he was inspired by the scenery that surrounded his home, with the local area often acting as his muse. 

This is just once of the great places to visit during a relaxing Mother’s Day weekend, and there are plenty of other historic places to visit and things to do in Grasmere so you will be certain to pack full a weekend to experience everything the Lake District has to offer.

4 - Take a Lake District stroll

One of the best things to do when you’re visiting the Lake District is to get out and enjoy the surroundings as much as possible, so walking is a great way of doing this. You’re sure to see some beautiful surroundings that you wouldn’t be able to get anywhere else, making walking in the Lakes the perfect Mothers Day activity for the walkers in your life.

We recommend a number of walks in and around Grasmere that will help you to see the best of the local area. Alternatively, you can wander a little further and explore even more of the area with these Lake District walks.

5 - Relax with a Lake District spa experience

A brilliant way to show just how much your mum is appreciated is with a luxury spa day! At The Daffodil Hotel, we have a tranquil spa with a wide selection of treatments that are sure to help you relax and unwind during your weekend away. Why not treat yourself too and have a dedicated mother and daughter spa day to spend cherished quality time with her too?

6 - Enjoy a delicious afternoon tea

As well as a spa treatment, you could also book an Afternoon Tea to really give her the VIP treatment. We offer a variety of different options, from a traditional afternoon tea to the full Luxury Afternoon Tea experience with a glass or two of fizz. There’s not many other better ways of showing your mum just how much you love her than when you spend time with her chatting over an afternoon tea.

7 - Go for a shopping trip

Who doesn’t love a good shopping trip and indulging in retail therapy? There are so many local brands for you to explore throughout the Lake District that there are plenty of ‘must buys’ for you to come back with. Don’t worry if you need to take a break while you shop, there are plenty of foodie hotspots throughout the Lake District for you to discover, including throughout Ambleside, Bowness and Kendal, it will fast become your new favourite staycation spot.

8 - Spend a short break in the Lake District

With so many things to do in the Lake District this Mother’s Day, why not turn your day trip into a short weekend break instead? That way you can take your time enjoying everything the Lake District has to offer, without the pressure of fitting it all into one day.

Whether you would like to relax, dine or sleep at The Daffodil Hotel, we’re dedicated to making sure that your Mother’s Day is extra special. Get in touch with a member of our team for more information about how you can enjoy the weekend with us.
