We know we all like to treat our mums all year round, but if you happen to be in Dorset this Mother’s Day, here are a few suggestions to help show just how much you appreciate everything mum does for you.
Take a stroll around some of Dorset’s prettiest villages
Dorset has some of the most picturesque villages in the UK. From quaint communities with thatched rooves to tiny hamlets with babbling brooks, there are plenty of beautiful places to explore on a stroll with mum. These places also have some of the best country-style pubs and tearooms in the county, so be sure to stop off for some refreshments.
Book a Sunday lunch
There’s something very special about a Sunday lunch in Dorset, especially when they’re made with the incredible local produce that Dorset is well known for. On Mother’s Day the pubs and restaurants offering Sunday Lunch book up quickly, so make sure to get your table sorted as soon as possible. See some of the region’s eateries here.
Visit the coast
With the abundance of coastal towns and villages, you and your mum can spend a few hours walking along piers, enjoying cliff top views or strolling through the sand. The beaches around Bournemouth and Poole offer some incredible views, while places like Lulworth Cove have plenty of charming cafes and tearooms to stop off in and watch the world go by.
Grab fish and chips on the beach
You can’t really go to the beach and not sample some of the fish and chips on offer can you?
Do something unusual
Dorset is full of quirky things to do that can make for a really memorable experience. Why not take some llamas for a walk through the beautiful Dorset countryside or head to an abandoned village?
Treat her to a cream tea
Dorset is well known for the quality of its cream so it’s no wonder that cream teas are so popular here. There are a whole host of places all over the county offering cream teas, both traditional and with their own spin, so why not treat your mum to a tasty treat?
