1. Have brunch at Palm Bay in Newquay

Palm Bay in Newquay has everything you need for the perfect Mother’s Day brunch! We can’t work out what we love more, the stylish décor or the incredible menu! Make sure you try one of their neon or specialty lattes – including honey oat, candyfloss or lemon meringue. Whether you’re a sweet or savoury bruncher, one of their French or Posh toasts is sure to do the trick! 

2. Take a walk on the beach

Walk off your delicious brunch with a wander along the beach. Wait until the tide is out and you can take a glorious stroll from Newquay harbour across to Towan, Great Western and Tolcarne Beaches. Feel the soft sand beneath your feet, breathe in the fresh salt air and simply enjoy the moment together with Mum, arm-in-arm.

3. Go to the Tate in St Ives

Get inspired this Mother’s Day with an outing to the Tate gallery in St Ives – where fascinating art meets breath-taking scenery. The gallery overlooks the sea and is famed for displaying some of the most loved and revered British artworks of the twentieth century. If your mum enjoys a bit of beauty and culture, this is definitely the place for you. The current Barbara Hepworth exhibition is not to be missed!

3. Go shopping in Truro and stop for cake at Lawrence’s

Who doesn’t love a good shopping trip? Take a drive to Truro this Mother’s Day and have a wander around the shops, taking in everything the city has to offer. We’re sure you’ll find the perfect present to treat Mum with! When you’re all shopped out, head to Lawrance’s bar and bakery for an incredible slice of cake and a yummy cocktail.

Raise a glass to your Mum this year and treat her to a masterful seafood spread at Rick Stein’s, Padstow. The restaurant offers a truly memorable dining experience that’s sure to round off your day perfectly.
