Mother’s Day ideas: things to do for Mother’s Day

Bents Blog – Mothers Day – Banner

Mother’s Day is fast approaching and when it comes to treating mum, Bents has plenty to offer. We’ve rounded up the best activities, outings, and Mother’s Day lunch ideas at Bents Garden & Home to make her Mother’s Day extra special.

For mum’s with little ones

Keep the little ones entertained while mum enjoys a relaxing day out at Bents. Let the kids tire themselves out in the Children’s Play Area, positioned next door to our outside decking area – the perfect place to enjoy a cake and a coffee while keeping an eye on your little ones.

If you’re looking for an activity that’s fun for all the family, Jurassic Cove Adventure Golf is a must. Explore the full 18-hole course while surrounded by spectacular life-sized animatronic and static dinosaurs. After putting, check out the Jurassic Cove Adventure Golf Café, serving up a variety of hot and cold drinks, home bakes and kids packed lunches daily.

For pet-loving mums

For mum’s that are rarely seen without their four-legged friends, you can’t beat a trip to The Pet Place, finished off with a delicious lunch at The Pet Café.

The Pet Place is your one-stop shop for pet products. From dog beds and cat scratchers to gourmet treats and even a dog grooming service, we’ve got something for every kind of pet so you can treat mum to a bit of shopping, whether they’re after a new luxury leather collar for their furry friend or a smart Joules dog coat. Loved by walkers, families, and furry friends alike, The Pet Café serves a selection of light bites, home bakes, tasty treats, and hot and cold drinks and that’s not all – you can even treat your furry friend a puppaccino and a pupcake.

For adventurous mums

If your mum can’t get enough of the great outdoors, why not visit our Walk in the Woods. The Windy Bank Wood nature trail is loved by dog walkers, cyclists, and families alike and offers a tranquil walk through the edges of ancient peatland, open meadow, and woodland. The three mile trail takes around 1.5-2 hours to complete with picnic benches at intervals across the site.

Don’t fancy bringing a picnic? Stop by one of our many cafes or restaurants for a bite to eat, and don’t forget to check out Nevisport and Trespass, our go-to shop for outdoors clothing, footwear, and equipment.

For mums with green thumbs

At Bents, gardening is what we do. Treat your mum to a trip to our Open Skies Glass House and Outdoor Plant Area. Over 60% of the plants we sell at Bents are homegrown on our on-site plant nursery, making them guaranteed to last. If you can’t make it in-store you can shop our range of plants online. With thousands of types of plants to choose from you’re spoilt for choice. Go for classic roses, bright azaleas, or pretty rhododendrons. Our gift roses make the perfect Mother’s Day flowers and will last much longer than a bouquet.

If your mum is the crafty kind, why not join us for our Create Your Own Hand-Tied Bouquet Workshop? The workshop gives you the chance to make your very own bouquet using the best blooms and foliage the season has to offer, while demonstrating how to master the techniques of structure, colour, and styling.


For mums that are foodies

Mum’s that are foodies will be spoilt for choice at Bents. Our Foodhall has everything a food-lover could desire, from gourmet condiments and luxury crackers to premium chocolates and even delicious pre-made meals you can take back home for an easy dinner. Our Fresh Approach Restaurant serves up delicious homemade soups and homecooked favourites and our famous giant scones, while our Tapas Bar serves up Spanish-inspired small plates alongside the perfect wine pairings. We even have a Chocolate Truffle Making Workshop for mums that want to get stuck in. Learn how to make your own delicious truffles using the finest Belgian chocolate, mastering techniques such as marbling, piping, and decorating.

To make your Bents trip extra special, why not book our Afternoon Tea Experience for two? Choose from a traditional cream tea and enjoy a tiered selection of mouth-watering treats from delicate finger sandwiches to picture-perfect patisseries and our much-loved Bents scones.
