Things to do in February Half Term in Somerset

It doesn’t seem two minutes since Christmas, but yes, February half term is just around the corner. Somerset is the perfect place to spend half term as there’s plenty to see and do for kids of all ages. 

From gardens to motors, there’s so much choice when it comes to things to do over half term. Gather all the family together and spend the week exploring Somerset. A week long jaunt will keep your spirits high making you feel re-energised for heading back to work afterwards. If you’d rather take things a little slower, spend some time enjoying your self catering cottage by cooking with the kids or (if they’re a little older) choosing a cottage with a fire to add a cosy extra to your holiday. Short breaks are great for those with a little less time to spare or those who’d rather take some more time off in the summer.

We know that the weather over February half term can be unreliable so be sure to pack your wellies and waterproof coats, just in case. Whatever the weather, we’ve tried to find some indoor and outdoor activities for you all to enjoy together.

Make the most of your holiday in Somerset by adding some fun half term activities to your itinerary.

16th to 24th February: Family trails around Prior Park landscape gardens

16th to 24th February: Paint a hand-cut decoration at Barrington Court

16th to 24th February: Haynes Motor Museum Discovery Days
