Mother's Day - it's a walk in the park at Brockhole

This Sunday, it’s one of our favourite days of the year. The perfect chance to celebrate with a certain special lady all the things that make us feel so lucky to have her as part of our everyday lives – it’s Mother’s Day of course!

Before we give you a whole list of fantastic ideas to make your day one to remember, let’s have a little look at some quirky facts about Mother’s Day that you might not know…

Flowers bought for Mother’s Day apparently see around 25% of all flower sales accounted for during the year – that’s a lot of flowers, the top selling flower of all is the carnation, with pink and red leading the way!

If you haven’t chosen the perfect Mother’s Day card yet, don’t worry there’s still time to pop to the shops, in the UK alone around thirty million cards are sent on Sunday. If you are looking for something a little bit different, why not get crafty and make your own?

Although a global celebration, Mother’s Day is not the same in every corner of the world. While the UK celebrates it in March, many other countries hold their celebrations in May while Yugoslavia mark the occasion in December! In total, 50 different countries celebrate the day.


Take inspiration from our top trio of Mother’s Day ideas and spend the day with us here at Brockhole this year:

  • Why not have a few hours enjoying the great outdoors and plan a lovely Lake District walk, taking in the spectacular views and stunning landscape? With Spring almost in the air, it is a great time to see the seasonal changes in full flow throughout Brockhole’s heritage listed gardens. We also have plants for sale too, so you can take a little piece of the garden home with you if you choose!
  • Mother’s Day is one of the most popular days of the year for eating out, so if you are looking for a special place to celebrate Mother’s Day, look no further – we have a very special afternoon tea planned and some tasty treats lined up on our Mother’s Day menu, including smoked duck salad, roasted camembert cheese with red fruit jam and a lovely salmon and watercress quiche.
    Book a table in our lake view café and enjoy an exclusive Mother’s Day Afternoon Tea of homemade sandwiches, Cumbrian scone with clotted cream and petit fours, completed with a glass of fizz! Just £11.95 per person and £22 for two – simply contact us to make larger bookings, we’d love to accommodate you.
  • If you are looking to bring the little ones then you might be after something a bit more action packed to keep them entertained. Don’t forget Treetop Trek (booking recommended) and our Adventure Playground will be open as normal, along with our woodland trails and lakeshore paths – bring your wellies too!


So, all you need to do now is let your mum know that you have something special planned and to look forward to enjoying a beautiful day out in the Lake District!

Don’t forget if you would like to pre-book your table in the café, call us today on 015394 46601.
