Things to do in February Half Term in Devon

The school holidays have come around once more and if you’re planning a visit to Devon with the kids, there’s plenty of things to do to keep you all busy (and having fun) on your half term break.

February half term can be a little difficult when it comes to deciding where to go and what to do. The weather at this time of year is unreliable but when the sun comes out, it’s a great time to get outside. Devon has some beautiful beaches and countryside to explore. Watch spring emerge in the county and hopefully spot a few daffodils while you’re out and about. If your plans get rained off, take a look at our choice of events across the county listed below. We’ve chosen a good mix of indoor and outdoor activities to keep kids entertained during half term. From film workshops to bird watching, get them to try something new in February. You might find you have a budding David Attenborough or Steven Spielberg on your hands.

For those who fancy staying a little closer to the luxury of your holiday cottage, why not choose one with an indoor swimming pool? On days when you’d rather stay inside your little ones can let off some steam under your careful supervision or you can hop in for a dip yourself. Get everyone to play games together or practice those underwater handstands.

Whatever the weather, we’ve got an event for you and your family to enjoy in Devon this half term.

10th February: Royal Albert Memorial Museum Minecraft workshops

12th February: Bird watching for children at Seaton Wetlands

13th February: Nest box building

18th February: Totnes Good Food Sunday Market


Find your home away from home in a Devon holiday cottage.

Goat walking in Exmouth

The World of Country Life is a great day out for young children. Even though we went on a Saturday it was surprisingly quiet and we didn’t have to queue for anything which made it all the more enjoyable.

Family Holidays: There's no such thing as a Gruffalo?

The highlight of the trail was a large carved wooden sculpture of the Gruffalo which my five year old in particular adored.
