If you’re looking for ways to treat the mother figures in your life this March, here are our top suggestions for planning the perfect Mother’s Day in Devon.

Treat her to a cream tea

A traditional Devon Cream Tea is a wonderful treat any time of the year but you’ll find that there are often extra special ones on offer for Mother’s Day. For instance, Stuart Line Cruises are offering a Mother’s Day Cream Tea Cruise where you can indulge in a traditional Devon cream tea while cruising along the River Exe – it’s a great way to see a whole new side of Devon!

Alternatively, The Mole Resort in North Devon have a special Mother’s Day Afternoon Tea all week until the day itself. You can find out more and book here.

You’ll also find cream teas available at hotels, cafes and eateries around the county – so rest assured, wherever you go, you’re never too far from delicious home made scones, sweet jam and indulgent cream! Can’t make it to Devon for the day itself? Why not gift your mother figure a cream tea voucher? There are a host of places offering vouchers so you can enjoy whenever you like! Here are just some of the establishments offering cream tea vouchers:

Take her for lunch

If you’re a fan of a Sunday Roast, you’ll no doubt be happy that Mother’s Day always falls on a Sunday! Across Devon you’ll find restaurants offering carveries, three course menus and just about everything in between for Mother’s Day!

On Dartmoor, the Mill End Hotel is running a special roast dinner just for Mother’s Day set over three courses. Find out more and book your table here. Alternatively, in Tavistock, the Bedford Hotel has a traditional three course Mother’s Day lunch made up of the finest seasonal ingredients. You can find out more here. 

Elsewhere, on the outskirts of Torquay, the Cary Arms and Spa are offering a special Mother's Day menu too. Find out more here.

Enjoy a day out

There is never a shortage of things to do in Devon, with everything from leisurely strolls, surfing, theme parks, zoos and anything else you can think of at your disposal. Not only that, but many of the region’s top attractions are offering discounted entry or additional activities to help you celebrate your mother figures.

At Seaton Tramway, mums go free with an accompanying child all day! Once you’ve completed your trip, why not stop by the Tramstop Café where you can indulge in a cream tea or a Sunday Roast? Mums also get to go free at Dartmoor Zoo over the Mother’s Day weekend – all you need is an accompanying adult or child!

Elsewhere in Devon, Hartland Abbey is opening especially for Mother’s Day so you can enjoy a day out with their heritage daffodils before the season properly begins. There’s even discounted entry on this day.

Throughout Devon, the National Trust are offering discounts on visits on Mother’s Day as part of the National Lottery Open Week. To get your free entry, simply bring your lottery ticket or scratch card with you. You can redeem this offer at Arlington Court and Killerton, with other sites taking part later in March.

Or give your mum the chance to exercise their creative side with a day at China Blue. Located in Totnes, China Blue are offering you a chance to celebrate Mother’s Day by crafting a plate together! It’s a great way to spend some time together and create something you can keep forever. Find out more here
