Treat Mum This Mother’s Day!

15th March 2017    Holidays

Mothering Sunday has been going for about 400 years and is believed to have started in Britain when young people, who worked away from home, often working long hours, were given a day off by their employers, in order that they could return to their ‘mother church’ where they had been baptised, to spend time with their families.

Today Mother’s Day is still going strong and if you’re looking for that perfect gift for mum to make the day of your mother’s day balloon flight, here’s some ideas to help you out!


Spa Day

A spa day is both relaxing and fun! It’s the perfect way to treat mum to show your appreciation. Fistral Spa in Newquay, Cornwall has excellent TripAdvisor reviews and offers a range of Spa Day Packages.

Meal Out

If your mum loves great food, then why not treat her to a meal? With a huge range of restaurants and pubs to choose from across the South West, mum will be spoilt for choice! The top rated restaurant on Trip Advisor is Thomas Carr at the Olive Room in Ilfracombe, North Devon.  If you’re on a budget, why not cook your mum a tasty meal?

Afternoon Tea

Afternoon tea is a delicious and great way to treat mum this Mother’s Day. Sandwiches, cakes, tea and coffee are all on offer. What’s not to love about that!

Wine Tasting

This is an unusual way to treat mum but if she enjoys a glass of wine (or two!) then wine tasting is definitely a great way to show her your appreciation.  Aldwick Court Farm and Vineyard in Somerset is the perfect setting for a Vineyard tour and wine tasting experience.

Balloon Flight

A Champagne Hot Air balloon flight is an unforgettable experience. If you want to treat mum this Mother’s Day, then why not buy her a Champagne Balloon Flight? Flights come in the form of a voucher so your mum can choose a date of her choice or you can surprise her with a flight on Mother’s Day, we have morning and evening flights available from various locations in the South West. Champagne flights start from just £99 per person for a once in a lifetime experience!
