The first school holiday of the year is always a welcome break for children and parents alike. The doldrums of January have passed and spring will be well and truly on its way in Cornwall. The daffodils will be blooming and there’s likely to be a hint of romance in the air as Valentine’s Day once again falls during this week, it’s the perfect escape for all ages…

Waltzing around on the beaches with wellies and wetsuits; gathering the flock for a day trip to the Eden Project, National Maritime Museum in Falmouth or one of the other wonderful attractions we have nearby. February Half Term can be yours to make. If literally making things is your cup of tea then we have some brilliant ideas to, including screen printing and chocolate making.

With the most romantic day of the year slotted into the half term week, make sure you take some time out for yourselves. From a spa treatment to a romantic meal, if you need ideas or a babysitter just let us know and we’ll help you out.

Pack the wellies and waterproofs and blow the cobwebs away this February half term…
