Whisk mum away this weekend with our round-up of the best breaks...
The clock may be ticking, but it’s not too late to organise a fabulous treat to celebrate Mothers Day. We have spent some time seeking out a selection of wonderful breaks that are guaranteed to delight any mum.
Choose from city sophistication to the peace and quiet of the countryside. Opt for a luxe five-star hotel where no expense is spared, or set your sights on something less grand and formal – but just as much of a treat.
Hotels and resorts tend to fill up some time before the big day, but everything in our list had availability for Mothers Day at the time of writing. And for many of our selected venues, you’ll find some worthwhile alternatives if your first choice has now sold out.
Maybe the mum in your life would like a bit more time to look forward to her treat, so nothing’s to stop you booking a break which you can take at Easter, later in the Spring or over a Bank Holiday weekend.
Here’s a good tip: hotels often have excellent deals if you’re able to stay on a Sunday night. Sundays tend to be the hardest nights to fill, so you can often get a fantastic bargain, usually including dinner and breakfast. What’s more, it feels so much more of a treat to wake up to a leisurely Monday morning when everyone else is heading off to work or the school run! Check out some of the deals we’ve highlighted in our selection.
So it’s not too late to spoil the mum in your life with a fabulous break she’ll remember for a long time to come!

An exceptionally stylish and brand new Cotswold hotel
Foxhill Manor opened its doors on 10 March as a stylish eight-bedroom hotel. Think private house hotel, a laid back vibe, where the host ensures guests feel like they are staying with friends - friends who have great taste and who have thought of everything. On the same 400-acre private estate as the celebrated boutique hotel Dormy House, Foxhill Manor is similar in style but just that little bit more exclusive.
The hotel's five bedrooms and three suites offer a spaciousness that few hotels can offer and each one has a stunning bathroom with separate roll top bath and walk in shower. There is a large drawing room with plenty of games and books - a space to unwind - and a screening room with all the trimmings. There is also a relaxed bar area to enjoy a bite to eat or refreshing beverage or two. Outside guests will love the private garden and sunset terrace with its views over the Vale of Evesham. It is the perfect spot to natter over a chilled bottle of wine or long, leisurely dinner. When it comes to supper, there are no set menus or meal times at Foxhill Manor. Guests chat to the Chef about foodie preferences and a personalised four course evening meal is prepared. It is then up to guests where they enjoy it; in the dining room, in the kitchen with Chef, watching a movie or in their room - it is on their terms.
Rates at Foxhill Manor start from £295 per room per night. This includes a full breakfast, snacks and drinks throughout the day as well as access to House Spa.
