Mother’s Day is fast approaching. This special time of the year for thanking your mother for everything she has done for you is an important one, and one worth getting right. Think of all that this incredible person has done for you, now it’s your chance, your opportunity where you can do something just for her.

But what? There is so much choice these days, a plethora of options available to show your mother the perfect day. With all these options, one can easily be weighed down by the plight of decision paralysis. But fear not, we’ve assembled this list of the top 4 things to do in Yorkshire this Mother’s day.

Spa day

Mother’s Day of course is all about her; this is Mum’s day to be pampered so what better way to do that than a trip down the spa. A day, or perhaps just the morning, relaxing with a well-earned massage or facial could be just the thing she is looking for. And for all the sons out there, if you don’t fancy participating in the treatments yourself, booking her in for some rest and relaxation and then collecting her afterwards for more Mother’s day activities will be just as appreciated.

Country walk

A fun adventure for all the family, or just you and mum, a nice leisurely walk through the country side could be the perfect way to spend this quality time together. If you’ve booked yourself into a nice Scarborough based hotel, why not head down to Raincliffe Woods. Here you can enjoy the terrific woodland scenery, walking and talking on your way to the rare remains of a glacial lake. What better way to spend the day then with good company and the great outdoors.

Afternoon tea

If you think mum might fancy something less strenuous this Mother’s Day, then why not treat her to a lovely Afternoon Tea; indulging in delicious cakes, beverages and more importantly, top notch conversation. Head on down to somewhere like the stunning Rowley Manor where their resident pianist can score your afternoon of traditional finger cut sandwiches and immaculate views of the idyllic Yorkshire countryside.

Historical tour of York

Of course all mums are different and if you want to provide for whatever mood she might be in then why not make a trip to the historic town of York. You can spend all day here touring the fascinating history rich sites, grabbing that aforementioned afternoon tea, shopping in boutique shops, and even capping things off with lavish dinner at one of Yorkshire’s fine restaurants. If you really want to hedge your bets this year, and provide the best of all worlds, a day out in York could really not be a better option this Mother’s Day.
