Discover what to do and visit close to our Devon holiday cottages this February half term
The first school holiday of the year is fast approaching us but it’s still not too late to book your February half term break away to Devon. With the first flowers beginning to emerge, it’s a lovely time to explore the beautiful unspoilt Devon countryside and its rugged moors, and enjoy the quieter coastal paths and beaches before the crowds come for the summer.
Here are our top five things to do and visit over February half term near to our Devon holiday cottages:
1. Snowdrop Valley - Wheddon Cross
Visit Snowdrop Valley, a privately owned remote valley that kindly allows access whilst the beautiful carpet of snowdrops are in bloom during February. For easy parking, a park and ride bus operates from The Rest and Be Thankful Inn
2. Eco-Superheros Week at RHS Rosemoor
RHS Rosemoor invites you to be an Eco Hero this February Half Term. There is plenty of fun planned, including a garden trail, eco-sculpture workshop, drop-in family craft workshops and Exmoor Zoo's 'Eco Hero' Steve Eddy will be there on 20th Feb with a collection of wild creatures.
3. Half Term at Arlington Court
National Trust Arlington Court reopens for Half Term - with plenty of indoor and outdoor fun and a new family trail. Explore the Arlington estate through the lens of a camera with a new photography trail, create something ‘crafty’ at one of the drop in family craft sessions, or join the gardening team to learn how you can plant pips from your local fruit bowl.
4. Live Lambing at The Big Sheep
Meet the first lambs of the season at the Big Sheep this February Half Term. If you are lucky, you might even see one being born! There will plenty of shows during the days, including bottle feeding lambs, sheep racing and all the usual indoor attractions.
5. Half term fun at Lydford Gorge
There are plenty of activities taking place at Lydford Gorge over half term. Have fun with fire on Monday 18th, where you can learn how to light a fire without matches and cook over a campfire, then later in the week make a bug a home or help the ranger prune the apple trees.
