Treat Your Mum to a Special Break to the Lake District this Mother’s Day
Your mum has cared for you since the day you were born, and will have no doubt become a friend along the way too. Protecting you from the world and being a listening ear when needed, your mum has treated you and spoilt you from the beginning. That’s why this Mother’s Day it’s important that you show her just how much you care for her! With busy schedules often making it difficult to spend some quality time together, it can be tricky to give your mum the level of attention she deserves. With Mother’s Day just around the corner, you can start to plan something extra special to show her just how much you love her.
While flowers, chocolates and even jewellery are a beautiful and thoughtful gift on Mother’s Day, you might want to consider doing something a little different this year. Taking advantage of the lovely scenery that’s available in the UK, why not treat your mum to a trip to the Lake District? Creating memorable moments and exploring somewhere new, there’s plenty of things to do in the Lake District. Here are just a few ideas for this year’s Mother’s Day gift.
The Lake District is a vast area of natural beauty, with plenty to see and do. With so much breath-taking scenery, it might be difficult to know where to start. However, Keswick is one of the most beautiful market towns in the area and is always a good place to begin your weekend away!
Surrounded by mountains, it’s a popular destination for those visiting the Lake District and it’s not hard to see why. From shops to museums and restaurants, there’s no doubt that this is a destination your mum would enjoy a relaxing weekend in. Keswick’s local lake, Derwentwater, is only a few minutes walk from the town, should you wish to get away from the hustle and bustle. Offering some amazing scenic drives, what more could you ask for when it comes to a trip with your mum?
Venture to Grasmere
It’s said that Grasmere is the most popular village in Cumbria, due to the poet William Wordsworth making it his home from 1799 to 1808. It was here that he wrote most of his poetry, and you can even visit his former home, Dove Cottage. Whether you’re a fan of poetry or not, Grasmere is surrounded by magnificent fells and mountains, creating an awe-inspiring environment to spend some quality time with your mum.
Relax with a walk round the lake, or even take a boat out to visit the island in the middle. With idyllic streets to explore, Grasmere could be the answer to a special treat.
Visit Ullswater Lake
The second largest lake in the Lake District, Ullswater is a stunning area and a must-see if you’re enjoying a weekend with your mum. Known for being the setting of William Wordsworth’s ‘Daffodils’ poem, the lake itself provides a variety of activities depending on how adventurous you’re feeling! From watersports to a leisurely stroll, Ullswater is surrounded by a number of breath-taking fells amongst its countryside.
There are a number of towns surrounding the lake including Glenridding and Pooley Bridge, offering hours of entertainment for you and your mum to enjoy. Uncovering one of the Lake District’s many hidden gems, the area surrounding Ullswater Lake is tranquil and unspoilt. To take your mum on a memorable trip this Mother’s Day, the Lake District is teeming with opportunities.
In other words, you won’t be short of things to do. Treat your mum to afternoon tea or even a few quiet drinks and enjoy your weekend of relaxing and spending time together!
