Cream teas, fish and chips on the beach - even organised walks with LLAMAS - there's plenty of ways to show your mum you love her on Mother's Day in Dorset. We pick seven ways to treat mum this Mothering Sunday
1. Go on a cream tea tour around Dorset
From farmhouse to country house, tea room to hotel, there are many places in Dorset to take mum for a traditional cream tea. Question is – do you put jam or cream on your scone first?
2. Stroll around Dorset’s prettiest villages
Dorset villages are some of the most beautiful in England – think winding lanes, thatched cottages and a cosy pub or welcoming tea room. We pick some of the prettiest places to explore on Mothering Sunday.
3. Discover Dorset’s quirkiest places
Walk with llamas, get to know an ancient giant or explore art exhibits in a quarry – there’s plenty quirky things to see and do with mum for a Mother’s Day with a fun twist.
4. Take a Martin Clunes tour of Dorset
Whose mum doesn’t like Martin Clunes? This charming man and his family have called West Dorset home for over two decades and Martin shared some of his favourite local haunts with Dorset Magazine.
5. Have fish and chips on the beach
Nothing beats a mouth-watering cone of chips whilst your stroll along the beach with your mum – just watch out for those pesky gulls! In Dorset there are so many tasty takeaways serving up crispy battered cod straight from the paper. We pick eight great ‘plaices’ for a chippy tea in Dorset.
6. Treat mum to Sunday lunch
