Mum's the word for Mother's Day

Edition takes a look at what to do, where to go and gift ideas for Mother's Day... so you don't have to 

Give your mum the mother of all Mother’s Days on 31 March – there are plenty of lovely treats to be had locally. Madingley Hall, an elegant country house set in magnificent gardens, is hosting a Mother’s Day Lunch (£30), where you can enjoy a roast dinner, plus desserts like salted caramel tart.

Or, over at the Quy Mill Hotel & Spa, you can enjoy an afternoon tea with prosecco for £24 per person. If you want to really pamper her, Bedford Lodge Hotel Spa is offering a Mum and Me Spa Day package, which includes access to all heat and hydrotherapy facilities, the rooftop hot tub, experiential showers, steam room, sauna and choice of a manicure or pedicure, plus a champage afternoon tea. It’s £85 per person.

Alternatively, over at The Cambridge Brew House, you and your mum can get stuck into a gin tasting with the Cambridge Distillery, which includes masterclass and a G&T (£15), followed by a Sunday roast in the restaurant if you want to make a day of it. If you’ve got kids in tow, they’ve got you covered too – upstairs, The Locker Room will be packed with games, bean bags, films and hands-on activities to keep little ones entertained.
