February events in Somerset

For a romantic Valentine’s break or an adrenaline pumping half term, Somerset has plenty of events to cater for all the family. Pack your bags and head to the Somerset hills for your February holiday.

February marks the start of springtime. As the daffodils emerge from their flowerbeds, head for the hills to see colour blossoming across the countryside. From the Mendips to the Quantocks, Somerset has hills galore for you to climb. Get to the top for stunning views across Somerset and beyond. You might even see Cardiff on a clear day. 

Wrap up and take lunch outdoors on the terrace of your holiday cottage or picnicking on the Somerset coasts. Soaking up the sunshine, relax and unwind on your holiday by taking some time out to yourself. Sunnier days return but there’s still a chill in the air so make sure you pack your coat and scarf ready for those long winter walks. Stomp through Somerset along the coastal paths and woodland trails, don’t forget the forests of Exmoor on your jaunt. You could even hop through the hills into Devon for more space to explore.

However you choose to spend your February, Somerset is ideal for those who want to experience the great outdoors and take a quiet moment for themselves.


Many of these events are perfect to plan into your short break in Somerset or for an extended half term holiday. Whatever you choose, keep yourself busy in February with these things to do: 

Throughout February: Royal Photography Society International Print exhibition 159 at the Museum of Somerset

2nd February: RSPB Nature Reserve Ham Wall’s World Wetland Day walk
