What's on in Cornwall this February half-term

17th January 2014

Are you coming to Cornwall this February? Wondering what to do? Let us help. We’ve got some great ideas of day’s out for the whole family!

Check out our remaining properties available for February half-term here.

Newquay Zoo

There is always something exciting to see at Newquay Zoo with over 103 species of animals including penguins, lions, meerkats, red pandas and reptiles. Take the family for a fun and educational day out; watch feeding times, keeper talks and even get up close to the animals with experience days.

Eden Project

No visit to Cornwall is complete without a visit to the Eden Project. During half-term the popular ice rink will still be open as well as the rainforest ariel walkway. But this year you can learn more about the freaky nature of plants, finding out weird and wonderful facts about different plant species from around the world; from carnivorous plants to sticky, smelly, illegal and rare plants.


Heartlands is a free attraction tucked away in the former mining heart of Cornwall, nr Redruth. There are 19 acres of eclectic fun to explore from climb-on sculptures, giant adventure playground for kids, arts and crafts studios and funky café. Heartlands provides year-round fun with both indoor and outdoor spaces. Go see, go play.

Learn to surf


If it’s your first, second or even third holiday in Cornwall and you’ve not yet experienced surfing, it’s time! Make 2014 the year you stand up on your first wave. But be warned, it’s addictive, you’ll want to surf every day after a lesson! Come on, release the inner surfer!

There are surf schools close to all of our properties:
Extreme Academy – Watergate Bay
Kingsurf Surf School – Mawgan Porth

Coastal walks


With 258 miles of coastal path to explore in Cornwall we suggest you pack your walking boots. Set off along the North Cornwall coast line and see what you find; look out for wildlife both in the grass and out to sea, Cornish flowers, surfers and of course stunning sunrises and sunsets. You could end up walking for miles without even noticing.
