March is busy month filled with important days and events; one of these days is Mother’s Day. In the UK it’s celebrated on the fourth Sunday of Lent, which this year falls on the 10th of March. It originally dates back to the 16th century with the practice of children visiting their mother on Laetare Sunday. American influences on this tradition slowly changed it into a day for showing appreciation for your mother as we know it today. Now in the UK most people see the 4th Sunday of Lent as a chance to buy flowers of chocolates for their mother, and maybe even set her up for a weekend treat at a local spa hotel.
If you want to splurge and really set your mother up with the very best, you can arrange a weekend for her in the Royal Crescent Hotel and Spa in Bath. This beautiful hotel is located in a stunning 18th century building just outside the old city centre of Bath. People staying here describe it as a holistic haven, an idyllic retreat, or simply “heaven”. The spa provides things like a relaxation pool, a gym, and a fully equipped spa with every spa treatment you can imagine.
If you would like something a little more mid-range in Bath, you can instead take a look at the Macdonald Bath Spa Hotel. This hotel is just outside the old city centre as well, and set in a majestic old family Georgian manor home. It is surrounded by several acres of gardens ensuring that your mom will have all the peace and quiet she deserves. Arrange for her to have a relaxing massage, followed by a fabulous meal in the hotel’s incredible restaurant.
