February events in Devon

As the temperature warms up, you’ll be pleased to know that Devon springs to life in February. Whether you’re planning an early February holiday in anticipation of Valentine’s or you’ll be enjoying the late February sunshine on your half term holiday, there’s plenty going on to keep visitors busy.

Walking over the hills of Dartmoor, you’ll notice a slight change. The grass is greener. The plants are looking a little more alive. You might even need to pop your hat and gloves in your rucksack. As the sunshine streams down on to your face, take a moment to soak in the warmth and remember what spring feels like. Continue on the path back to your holiday cottage to enjoy a hot cup of tea and relax, glowing from your winter walk.

You might be visiting Devon in February for various reasons: half term holidays, a Valentine’s getaway or, quite simply, just for a short break because you can. Whatever the reason for your holiday, you’ll find something to do to suit you. We’ve searched high and low to gather the finest events to keep you busy in the county. We’re particularly fond of the National Marine Aquarium, especially for kids, their events are family friendly. Good fun for all ages. If you’re taking a holiday for just the two of you, enjoy one of the many National Trust properties across the county. Devon has some beautiful stately homes and gardens.


Add a little excitement to your Devon holiday with a visit to these events across the county:

3rd February: Grand opening of A la Ronde

12th February: Crafts at Exeter Cathedral

10th February: Dartmouth Farmer’s market

10th February: Sleep with the sharks at the National Marine Aquarium

17th February: Dartmouth Beer Festival


Our Devon cottages make for a wonderful holiday at any time of year.
