18 February 2018
Show your mum just how much you appreciate her this Mothering Sunday by taking inspiration from our list of top treats including places to go and things to do around the Fal River.
1. Sunday Lunch by the Sea
The Water's Edge
Gaze out on the ever-changing views of Falmouth harbour as you tuck into a delicious three course lunch at The Greenbank Hotels award winning restaurant, The Water's Edge. Hearty game terrine. Warm pear bakewell. Tender roast sirloin with all the trimmings, the special Mother's Day menu is filled to the brim with the freshest flavours of spring. The best bit... All mums get treated to a glass of fizz on the house.
2. SUP mum?
Is your mum wild at heart? Ditch the flowers and the chocolates this Mother's Day and give her an experience she won't forget. Treat her to a Stand Up Paddleboard Lesson with the friendly folk at WeSUP. For a double dose of fun you could hire a tandem board and set off on a special mother’s day adventure together!
3. Loving Vincent
Perhaps you mum is a lover of the arts? In which case she’ll adore BAFTA & Oscar nominated film Loving Vincent - The world’s first fully painted feature film which brings the paintings and subjects of Vincent van Gogh to life to tell his remarkable story. This truly wonderful film is being screened at The Poly, Falmouth and what’s more? There’s a post film Q&A with Sarah Wimperis one of the 95 painters who worked on the production.
4. Mums go FREE
All mums love Trebah Garden, and on Mothering Sunday they go free! Spend some quality time strolling around this subtropical paradise with it’s stunning coastal backdrop, then head to the contemporary kitchen cafe, and enjoy a delicious two course lunch.
