Don't forget to say thank you to mum this Mother's Day

19th March 2019

Mother’s Day is fast approaching, and it’s the perfect opportunity to plan a special treat to show your mum just how much you appreciate her.

Whether you want a family day out, a leisurely lunch with no need to bicker about the washing up, or to spoil her with a spa treatment, you’ll find plenty of options in Folkestone, Hythe, Romney Marsh and the Kent Downs.

If your family includes young children, then a trip to Port Lympne Reserve or the Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Railway could be just the ticket. If she’s a real fan of steam, a driving experience could be on the right tracks.

If you want to make a real statement, how about a champagne flight with LyddAir sightseeing tours? Or for something different, try alpaca trekking at Haguelands Village.

But you don’t need a huge budget to show her how much you care. It’s a great time of year to go hunting for spring flowers, or for a ramble across the Marsh, spotting lambs dotted across the fields. If she’s a style queen, why not plan an afternoon browsing the independent shops and boutiques in Folkestone’s Old Town or Hythe’s bustling town centre, and hunt for the perfect accessory.

A cream tea always hits the spot, and you can pick from a traditional tea room in Hythe or New Romney, or enjoy the fare at one of our excellent hotels.

You’re spoilt for choice if you’d like a Mothers’ Day lunch in Folkestone, Hythe, Romney Marsh or the Kent Downs, with many country pubs, stylish restaurants or family-friendly cafés vying for your trade.

And if your mum needs some time to just get away from it all, why not book her a treatment at Exotic Fusion or the spa at the Hythe Imperial?

Whatever you do, don’t forget the card!
