On the hunt for local inspiration for family days out on Sunday March 15? Look no further this Mothering Sunday...

1. Stroll through the garden at Claremont Landscape Garden in Esher and visit the Camellia Terrace in bloom. The café will be open for coffee, hot lunches and afternoon teas – and, most importantly, mothers get in free when accompanied by their children. More at

2. There are few more picturesque places in Surrey for a picnic than the spectacular Painshill Park landscape gardens in Cobham, where mothers always get in free for Mothering Sunday when accompanied by their children. More at

3. Early spring flowers will be abundant at RHS Garden Wisley, near Woking, so here’s another opportunity for a relaxing stroll. For an extra special treat, why not enjoy a two-course lunch or perhaps a Wisley rhubarb afternoon tea in the restaurant (£25 per person) from 12noon to 3.30pm. More at

4. At Denbies Wine Estate near Dorking, there’s a whole host of potential celebrations. Highlights include the Gallery restaurant Mother’s Day brunch and outdoor vineyard train tour (£29.50 per person, with children under 12, £10) and the Mother’s Day Garden Room buffet with piano accompaniment (£29.50 per person, with children under 10, £9).

5. Head to Pennyhill Park Hotel & Spa in Bagshot for a special lunch or afternoon tea in another magnificent setting. Choose from a sparkling afternoon tea from 1pm in The Ascot Bar (£43 per adult, £28 under-12s) or the three-course jazz buffet lunch in the Brasserie Restaurant from 12.30pm to 2pm (£55 per adult, £28 for under-12s). Both come with a small gift for mums. More at
