For every Mum, Nana, Grandma, God-Mother and Auntie, Mother’s Day is the chance to get together and thank the special women in your life.  One thing is for sure, it’s definitely the thought that counts and Poole is packed with ways to make it one to remember.

If some spoiling is on the cards, one of Poole’s restaurants, hotels, cafes or bars can provide a huge treat.  From an indulgent Sunday lunch for all the family to time out with a deluxe afternoon tea packed with delicacies, it’s a lovely way to spend the day.

Poole is blessed with miles of some of the most beautiful walks or cycle rides.  Take a family walk or cycle whether along the three mile stretch of beaches, try the Castlemain Trailway, Holes Bay to Upton Country Park or exploring along the harbour shoreline to Whitecliff.  Many stretches include play parks and coffee stops along the way for a well-deserved rest.  Choose from guided or self guided walks and cycle routes including Poole Quay Cockle Trail.  Pick up a leaflet from the Tourist Information Centre based in Poole Museum.  It’s the perfect way to walk off a lovely lunch.

For a full day out of family fun, Mums go free at Farmer Palmer’s Farm Park on Sunday 31 March.  All the fun of the farm means there’s plenty of action for the whole tribe with chances to feed the animals, plenty of bouncy castle action, soft play and peddle go-karts whilst mum relaxes with great coffee, cake or a meal in the café.  Just download the voucher on Farmer Palmer’s website.

Book a pamper session or spa, whether a hair cut with her favourite hairdresser or a full spa day, she’s sure to appreciate the time out.  With the location at the tip of the Sandbanks peninsula enough to revive body and soul, treatments at the Haven Hotel’s Spa transcend the ordinary.  Take a swim in the outdoor pool, heated out of season, try a Jacuzzi or sauna and follow it with a mani-pedi, facial or full massage.  Lunch or dinner at The Point, the hotel’s two prestigious AA-Rosette restaurant, looking out over Old Harry Rocks is a picture-perfect way to end the day.
