Dartmouth is known for its watersports; you could try your hand at paddleboarding with The Paddle Shack, or kayak around the bay with Sea Kayak Devon to discover secluded beaches and secret coves.  

If you’re looking for something low cost, you can show mum you care by spending some quality time together exploring the beaches and coastal paths that Dartmouth, and the surrounding area, have to offer. Take the South West Coast Path to Blackpool Sands, explore the Berry Head Nature Reserve in Brixham or walk the Dartmouth Castle to Compass Cove trail.

If mum is a big animal lover, you could treat her to a day out at Pennywell Farm.  

The whole family will be sure to enjoy cuddling the piglets, bunnies and guinea pigs. You can also immerse yourself in farm life for the day with activities like goat milking, deer feeding and egg collecting.  

Book your tickets online and you could get a free VIP upgrade with a full paying adult ticket. Included is coffee and cake, a piggy blanket, ice cream and animal feed! Use the code ‘VIPMUMMA’ when checking out.  


Take a walk around Greenway House 

Greenway House is a beautiful estate where Agatha Christie and her family would spend their holidays relaxing by the river, playing croquet, or imagining her latest mystery book.  

This National Trust owned building is an excellent place to take mum for the day, especially if she’s an avid reader! The house is filled with a delightful collection of ceramics, silverware and books, owned by Agatha Christie. 

Outside the woodlands trail down to the stunning Dart Estuary is a beautiful place to stop and watch the world go by; or you could treat mum to a spot of lunch at their Barn Café. For a greener and more leisurely travel, why not take the Greenway Ferry from Dartmouth?  


Visit Coleton Fishacre House and Garden 

Originally owned by the D’Oyly Cart family, Coleton Fishacre House and Gardens is an Arts and Craft-style house imbued with charm and grace.  

You will be able to explore and spend some quality time with the special females in your life and as spring is on its way, you’ll see an abundance of stunning flora within the garden, including beautiful cherry blossoms and delicate daffodils.  

There are plenty of walks you can take with captivating views of the rugged coastline and hidden coves. They also have a lovely café, the perfect place to grab a light bite to eat, a piece of cake or a warming cup of coffee.
