From cosy cinema nights to a classy cream tea, there’s plenty of ways to show your mum you love her on Mother’s Day in Devon. We pick seven ways to treat mum this Mothering Sunday
If your mum is the outdoorsy type, then take her for a serene walk to get back to nature in Fingle Woods. The unspoilt ancient woodland is the perfect walk to enjoy this Mothering Sunday. Don't forget to stop off at the Fingle Bridge Inn for lunch, where you can look out over the River Teign and enjoy the tranquillity. The woodland is protected by the National Trust and has a fantastic view of Dartmoor from the top of the Teign gorge. Be on the lookout for roe deer that make the woodland their home.
For a quirky night out, head to Totnes Cinema. Hidden on the high street, this secret hideaway screens modern blockbusters, foreign masterpieces and old Hollywood classics. The cinema is full of history and has an amazing story to explore before the film starts. Get lost in the silver screen whilst enjoying a cocktail in this very special building your mum will love!
Is your mum an avid reader? Take her to Greenway to experience every bookworm's dream. Surrounded by a large lush garden, Greenway was Agatha Christie's holiday home. The house has been frozen in time and is kept exactly how it was in the 1950s when Christie would holiday here with her family. Your mum will love to wander around the house and its grounds, and see why this place inspired some of Christie's most iconic murder-mysteries.
Most people made clay mugs or plates for their mums when they were younger on mother's day. Why not relive those memories by taking a pottery class together? Tarka Pottery and Ceramics offers classes for any ability to learn how to throw clay and make some beautiful pottery. Located in Little Torrington, there are lots of events and classes to choose from. The whole family can join in and have fun making unique art!
Who doesn't enjoy a cream tea, and this one is very special. Set harbour side on Plymouth's Barbican, The Strand Tearooms are decorated with traditional Tudor décor. Handmade scones and locally made cream and jams create the perfect afternoon tea. Your mum can sit back and relax, watching the boats bob along the harbour. Just don't start an argument about whether the jam or cream goes first!
Why not have your mum try something new, or get her back in the saddle with a horse riding day at Finlake riding centre. Open to all levels of experience, hack through the 130 acres of winding woodland and parkland with experienced riders. Riding lessons are also available at the centre for those who want to take up a new hobby or have more of a challenge.
