March 09th, 2022

Mother’s Day is a beautiful expression of celebration that deserves the perfect holiday. Here at The Valley, we provide perfect luxurious accommodation, empowering our guests to enjoy what Cornwall has to offer. We share some glorious Cornish destinations to visit on Mothering Sunday.

The Cornish Seal Sanctuary

Situated in Gweek, the Seal Sanctuary provides aid for sick and injured seal pups discovered around the Cornish coast. Alongside the adoring seals, penguins and diverse ranges of animals, the sanctuary provides beautiful scenic views and woodland walks that can be enjoyed by all the family. Heartbroken to leave? Do not worry! The purchase of one ticket grants you access to the Sanctuary all year round.

Afternoon tea

Afternoon Tea

Indulge in a traditional high tea, delving into scones, jam and cream at two fabulous recommended Cornish destinations:

The award-winning cafe by Duchy of Cornwall Nursery is a royal favourite, providing exquisite high tea while visitors can cast their eye over the view of Restormel Castle.

A hidden fairytale discovered in the middle of Cardinham Woods, The Wood’s Cafe provides freshly baked goods paired with locally roasted coffee.

Moreover, if you just want to simply rewind, relax in your own private hot tub at The Valley and have high tea come to you with a hamper specially delivered by The Cornish Food Box Company. Remember, jam first then cream!

Pub Lunch

The Pandora Inn is a traditional award-winning pub with a unique al fresco dining experience.

Be delightfully encapsulated by the picturesque surroundings while you dine on a floating pontoon that stretches out into the cornish creek. Travel by car, foot or boat, this beautiful place is not one to miss if your mum loves a pub lunch.
