Mothering Sunday more commonly referred to as Mother’s Day is only a month away. It’s an age old festival born from Christian roots to celebrate mothers and mother figures. The date changes annually as it’s held on the 4th Sunday of Lent and this year it lands on Sunday, 11th March 2018. Whilst the day itself is not a bank holiday, it’s a weekend families typically get together to visit and treat their mothers to a special day of celebration, whether that’s breakfast in bed, the presentation of a posy of flowers, a lunch out or in some cases a special weekend away.
“Say it with flowers” is the advertising slogan to mark the one day in the year you go that extra mile to make your mother feel special. We figured this year why not go that one step further and spoil mum with a weekend (or week long) holiday with everyone she loves. This time of year is considered low season in UK holiday rentals, so booking a short break during one of the most reasonably priced months of the year, makes it a very affordable treat for mum!
