Mothering Sunday in the UK is 31st March 2019, the same date the clocks spring forward into British summertime. Mother's Day gifts can include anything from home grown flowers to handmade cards and freshly baked goods but if you would prefer to splash out a bit, there are plenty of other options. My suggestion for this year is a weekend break for mum.


Loch Heron at Three Lochs Holiday Park

Here at Frugaldom, we love our short breaks - they are affordable, they are fun and there's always something worthwhile to see or do while enjoying a change of scenery. Escaping to the countryside can be a fabulous way to relax and unwind, so why not leave stress and anxiety at home and make a break for freedom to explore the surrounding woodland and lochside walks.

The approach to Three Lochs Holiday Park, Balminnoch

Three Lochs Holiday Park is at Balminnoch, which lies approximately 10 miles from the market town of Newton Stewart in the gorgeous Dumfries and Galloway region of southwest Scotland. I cannot promise sunshine but, like most other Scottish holidays at this time of year, if can bring your wellies and winter woollies as well as your summer T's and glad rags, then you can enjoy the great outdoors in all weathers. You can feast on a Mother's Day meal at the site's licensed restaurant - the Duck or Grouse - and I believe there's also a party on the Saturday night with live music... if it's Kippy and Co providing the entertainment then this is a not-to-be-missed event here at the holiday park!


Frugaldom outdoor project

Frugaldom has one full weekend break to offer in our privately owned caravan. It's a 2-bedroom (one with en suite) and costs the same whether it is for one person (a weekend escape for mum on her own) or a family of 4 break. Everything is provided, including a welcome bouquet of flowers, bottle of something fizzy (non-alcoholic can be arranged), a lovely box of chocolates and a free visit to nearby Frugaldom, if you would like to see what our project is all about while visiting.

Frugaldom holiday voucher

If Mother's Day weekend isn't the best of dates then you can always treat mum to a handy voucher that allows her to book her own 2-night break for whichever two nights suit her and we will still provide the gift pack* of flowers, wine and chocolate.

To find out more, visit Frugaldom on Facebook page or contact @Frugaldom on Twitter or you book direct through the Frugaldom holiday website at Frugal Breaks.

SEE YOU SOON! smiley
