Self Catering Cottages in North Cornwall for February Half Term
February is a somewhat under-rated month here in Cornwall. The month is often mild and bright, as the first shoots of spring start to line the hedgerows and borders with colour. As one of the mildest parts of the UK on average, Cornwall is one of the first regions in the UK to welcome the arrival of Spring.
Bring the family closer together and choose a self-catering holiday cottage in Cornwall this February half term and beat those mid-winter blues. Visitors to Cornwall in February can enjoy beautiful, empty beaches, quiet coastal footpaths or relaxing, cosy pub lunches by an open fire.
Those looking for more of a thrill can challenge themselves to winter surf lessons. (You can always warm yourself up in the Health Club’s sauna or steam room afterwards).
Dog Friendly Breaks
We also have selection of dog-friendly properties in our collection and the first school holiday of the year is an ideal time to bring your family friend down to the North Cornish Coast.
Dogs are welcome on all the Cornish Beaches in February, including Polzeath, Rock, Porthilly and Daymer Bay. We have mapped out 5 top local walks to make it easier for you to plan your week and we are always happy to advise you if you have any questions.
All our accommodation is within a 15 minute walk away or 5 minute drive to the local beaches of Polzeath, Rock and Daymer Bay.
Days Out with the Family on The Camel Estuary
There are plenty of day trips and things to entertain you and your family that we can recommend trying during your holiday. If you have not already visited The Eden Project, this really is a wonderful experience for all ages. Over the February half term, they organise special activities and their indoor ice skating rink is open to all.
We also always recommend the ferry from Rock to Padstow for a family day out closer to home. Padstow is a typically picturesque Cornish fishing village and is also the start and end of the Camel Trail, an excellent opportunity to hire some bikes and take in the breathtaking views of the Camel Estuary.
Why not visit the National Lobster Hatchery or enjoy some of Rick Steins Fish and Chips or a Cornish Pasty before you return to your base. Do not forget to dress up warm as it can get chilly on the ferry, but worth every minute.
If you are unable to take a full week of work we are also offering short breaks in some of our accommodation over the February Half-Term holidays.
