Whatever the weather this Mother’s Day, there are endless ways in Exeter to treat your Mum with a special day to say thank you! We’ve put together some ideas... just to make you stuck for choice!

Book an afternoon tea

There isn’t anything else that says ‘special occasion’ more than an afternoon tea does! Treat your Mum to an afternoon full of splendid cakes, petite sandwiches and sweet treats, all washed down with a cuppa or glass of bubbly!

  • Powderham Castle – Feel like a member of the royal family, with a unique guided tour of the castle and an afternoon tea for £40 for two people! Invite your sibling for an extra £18.

  • Exeter Golf and Country Club – Enjoy the spectacular views of the Wear Park restaurant whilst you indulge in an afternoon tea for two. Check the prices, as you can sometimes grab yourself a deal for an afternoon tea for two and a glass of fizz each for £30!

  • Woodbury Park – Relax and get cosy at Woodbury Park whilst you enjoy an afternoon tea with fresh scones, sandwiches and cakes! Prices start at £12.95.

  • Hotel Du Vin – This stylish hotel has switched up their afternoon tea, especially for Mother’s Day! Book your space quick for their delightful selection with a French twist!

If you fancy a cream tea with a difference, book onto Stuart Line Cruises’ Mother’s Day Cream Tea Cruise! Enjoy the fresh air and the tranquil waters of the River Exe whilst spending some time quality time with your Mum!

Lunch

Have a catch-up with Mum over a delightful lunch, there are plenty of great deals in Exeter so make sure you leave room for dessert!

Book a table at The Cosy Club in Southernhay, where you can indulge in two-courses for £19.95 or three-courses for £24.95. Enjoy views at Exeter Golf and Country Club, for a traditional roast dinner with the choice of a starter, dessert or both! Reserve your seat now, for three courses for £25 or two courses for £20!

Treat your Mum to a lunch at the stylish Southernhay House, with prosecco on arrival for £48 per person all finished with coffee and petit fours! Or if you fancied a family carvery, head to the Devon Hotel where you can pile your plate and enjoy a carvery for £19.50 at a 12:00 or 13:45 sitting.

Las Iguanas are offering a free glass of bubbly to Mums this Mother’s Day. Not to mention kids eat free too; meaning that you can have a family meal that is wallet-friendly and your Mum will enjoy a treat - everyone’s a winner! Or head to The Oddfellows; any Mum will receive a free glass of fizz with any booking made after 4pm!

Spa Day

Who doesn’t like a day at the spa? Let your Mum put your feet up and relax at Exeter Golf and Country Club, with the use of various facilities and a treatment or two. You could even book a double room and join your Mum for a massage!

Hotel Du Vin has a selection of spa packages to choose from, including their Express Retreat for £50 for half an hour treatment and a two course lunch or afternoon tea! Daughters can have a day to remember with their Mum, with the hotel’s Mother and Daughter retreat!

Workshops and Experiences

Spend an activity-filled day with Mum, you may even learn something new! Darts Farm are hosting their Mother’s Day Cupcake Workshop, for any budding baker wanting to make a homemade treat for Mum! This class £8.50 per child, with refreshments included! Or purchase a gift voucher valid at Exeter Cookery School, so Mum can have a day of cooking and eat the produce all to herself!

Your Mum is extraordinary, therefore it’s only fair to treat her to a gift out of the ordinary! Get Mum behind the wheel by gifting her a Land Rover Experience voucher. Join Mum whilst she tackles steep hills, deep water and ditches, in a vehicle which she can choose herself! Prices start form £125. Or if your Mum is a secret superstar, purchase a gift voucher for her to sing her heart out at the Sound Gallery Studios – make her dreams come true!

A day outdoors

How about a nice family walk outside in the fresh air? Head to Haldon Forest to embark along the walking trails and cycling routes, you could even surprise Mum to a Segway experience or a Go Ape adventure in the trees! Haldon Forest is offering Mums half price bike hire, don’t miss out!

There’s nothing quite like Crealy Adventure Park when it comes to a quality family day out, whether Mum wants to go on the rides, feed the animals or would prefer to relax with a cup of coffee… it’s her choice as it’s Mother’s Day! Enjoy a day exploring the wonderful grounds at The Donkey Sanctuary in Sidmouth, there are hundreds of donkeys waiting to meet your family! Is your Mum an animal lover? Perhaps she would like to adopt a donkey for her Mother’s Day present!

A day on the water

Come rain or shine; nothing stops the people of Exeter from getting in the water! Hire a paddleboard, canoe or kayak from Haven Banks Education Centre or Saddles and Paddles and see who can stay afloat the longest!

A day by the seaside

Make the most of the coast! Take a stroll along the sand in Exmouth with Mum and enjoy a good old natter. Stop off at Ocean Exmouth for a delicious lunch, play a few games at the amusements and show your competitive side during a game of bowling! Alternatively, head to Dawlish Warren for a breath of fresh air and a game or two in the amusements!

Why not make a day of it and buy a family ticket to the World of Country Life at Sandy Bay; where there’s plenty of farm fun for all the family to enjoy!

Sweet treat idea for Mum: the team at Roly’s Fudge are making White Chocolate and Raspberry fudge especially for Mother’s Day! Or if jewellery is more up your Mum’s street, the Polkadot Gallery are offering a 10% off all heart and flower jewellery!
