Things to do in February Half Term in Cornwall

February half term has rolled around once again and it’s time to start planning the finer details of your trip to Cornwall. Choosing to stay in a self catering cottage in the county gives you the freedom to explore at your own pace. It’s a home away from home for you to enjoy together.

Watch spring bloom across the county this February; daffodils and snowdrops spring up in gardens and forests across Cornwall. As winter begins to thaw, head outside to enjoy the beauty of our amazing coastline. From Cardinham Woods to Sennen Cove, you can make the most of the woodlands and sand on the doorstep of your cottage. Be sure to bring some wellies and a warm coat, though. Just in case the rain sets in.

On a stormy day, find a safe spot and watch the waves crash against harbour walls and cliff edges. An exhilarating way to introduce the kids to nature and experience a new side to Cornwall that you might not have seen before. For extra cosiness, choose a cottage with sea views. Curl up with a hot drink and the great view, all without getting soaking wet.


For days when you need something to keep everyone entertained, why not visit a local event? This is our selection of things to do with kids in February half term.
