UK trips to treat your mum

Washing your stinky socks, cooking your favourite meal or just being there for you, whenever you need her: the list of things that mum’s good at is almost endless.

And Mother’s Day is the time when we show our mums just how much we love them for doing those things only mum can do.

So why don’t you show her how much you really care this Mother’s Day by treating her with a whole weekend away? That’s right, forget flowers and a new pair of slippers, a staycation is the perfect thank you for being the Best mum in the World. Take a look at these three mum-friendly towns and get booking.

1. Charming Cheltenham for laidback shopping

Where better to take mum for a soothing weekend away than the beautiful spa town of Cheltenham? A walk along the Promenade is the ideal start to the trip, followed by a spot of lunch at The Vine, a cosy Victorian pub with excellent Thai food.

Then, in the afternoon you can treat your mum (and maybe yourself) to a bit of retail therapy. It’s easy as wishing to lose yourself in the independent boutiques of Montpellier. Look out for the Greek-inspired sculptures along the walk! Finish your first day with dinner in one of the cool restaurants in The Suffolks.

Want to sort out your weekend right now? Book a room in our Cheltenham Travelodge and you’re all set for the weekend of the 09th March.

2. Lovely Liverpool for culture

The birthplace of the Beatles and a former European City of Culture – what’s not to like about Liverpool? There’s loads to do, from visiting The Beatles Story – a trip through the careers of the Fab Four – to Pre-Raphaelite art and contemporary photography at the Walker Art Gallery. If mum loves a view, take her on the 50-minute Mersey Ferry ride for the most scenic way to see the city.

Our pick for food would be Maray, a lovely little ‘small plates’ restaurant specialising in falafel and cocktails that certainly boasts the personal touch. Check out our central Liverpool Travelodge for a super-convenient place to stay.

3. Brilliant Bath for a little luxury

A glorious city that looks like something out of a period drama, Bath is the ideal destination for a classy Mother’s Day getaway. Why not visit Britain’s only natural thermal spa at Thermae Bath Spa for a bit of R&R before seeing how the Romans did it at the famous Roman Baths. Then head off to the Jane Austen Museum to dip into the writer’s life and times.  And no trip to Bath would be complete without afternoon tea. There are a number of lace-and-scones locations, but our choice would be the elegant Bath Spa Hotel.  Read about more things to do in Bath.
