Mother’s Day is on Sunday 27th March 2022, so now is the perfect time to start thinking about ways to show your appreciation and enjoy the special day in the region.

Whether it’s a full weekend of plans you’re looking for or just a day out, there’s plenty to do in Darlington, Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Redcar & Cleveland and Stockton-on-Tees.

Say thank you with food

Don’t let mum slave over a hot stove this Mother’s Day, say thank you with food and enjoy a Mother’s Day meal out in the Tees Valley instead!

Treat your mum to top-quality cuisine to make up for all those meals she made you. Spoil her with a two Michelin star meal at Raby Hunt Restaurant, enjoy good grub from The Clubhouse at Rockliffe Hall, or enjoy a decadent afternoon tea in its 3AA Rosette Orangery Restaurant.

If a comforting home-cooked dinner is more your thing, dine in The Stables Restaurant at Pinchinthorpe Hall for a special menu featuring locally sourced food and delicious roast dinners, or relax by the roaring fire in The Fox Hole in Piercebridge with its Mother’s Day menu. Hope & Union also has a special menu on the day or, if you want something traditional, a delicious Sunday lunch is on offer at The Scruffy Duck in Norton.

If it’s a cuppa and a natter you’re after, catch up over an afternoon tea in the Tees Valley. Book online with likes of Gisborough Hall, Tea House Middlesbrough, Wynyard Hall, and The Copper Kettle, which will be serving up delicious scones, sandwiches, and sweet treats to mark the occasion.

Pick up the perfect present

Shop local and champion your independent stores across Darlington, Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Redcar & Cleveland or Stockton-on-Tees. From handcrafted treasures to tasty treats, you’re bound to find a special gift in the Tees Valley this Mothering Sunday.

Head to Chocolini’s in Saltburn for handmade chocolates before popping over the road to That Cake to pick up even more goodies!

If your mum would prefer to tuck into her Tees Valley treats from the comfort of home, Teesside Graze offer a variety of gorgeous grazing boxes, freshly baked scones and pastries can be collected from Crathorne Hall, while Maple & Dough will be dishing out its delicious vegan stuffed cookies.

If you’re looking to really push the boat out, treat her to a Wine Tasting Experience at Rockliffe Hall or pamper her with a spa day at Wynyard Hall.

Still struggling to find something? Get mum’s toes tapping at must-see rock ‘n’ roll musical Walk Right Back at Darlington Hippodrome or enjoy a more laid-back feel at the famous Royal Northern Sinfonia at Middlesbrough Town Hall.

Get tickets to see global superstar Paloma Faith, who will be back in region “Making her own kind of Music” at Darlington Arena in July 2022, following her sell out show at The Stockton Globe.

If your mam’s rugby mad, why not surprise her with tickets to see Tonga go head-to-head with the Cook Islands in the Rugby League World Cup at the Riverside Stadium this October?

 

Spend some quality time together

Skip the supermarket trip for flowers and say thanks a bunch with a spring flower arranging session instead! Head to The Spa Hotel Saltburn and make some bloomin’ lovely arrangements, before enjoying an afternoon tea and heading home with your own Instagrammable creations.

Get prepared for your flower arranging session and let your creative juices flow at The Pottery Loft’s Vase Making Session or pick up your paintbrush and pop that prosecco at its Paint & Prosecco nights!

If your mum loves cookery, visit The Pasta Shop in Darlington for a pasta making course worth every penne? Head to its ‘Happy Place Next Door’ class to make pasta by hand, before learning to cook the real Italian way and enjoying your own homemade meal – Bellissimo!
