Cornwall offers a variety of family-friendly activities and places in February, even if the weather might be a tad chillier than Summer!
Here are some suggestions:
Visit the Blue Reef Aquarium in Newquay for a fascinating underwater experience.
Gardens and Nature Reserves:
Trebah Gardens: With four miles of footpaths winding through dazzling exotic planting, transporting you from our little corner of England to sunnier climes. They have their very own private beach, and the countless secret corners waiting to be discovered in the garden, offer a the perfect escape for all ages.
Pinetum Gardens: The development of this area was to provide an illustration of species that look their very best in the winter. It is Cornwall’s biggest dedicated winter garden.
The Lost Gardens of Heligan: While some areas may be less vibrant in winter, it’s still a fascinating visit.
The Cornwall Wildlife Trust also manages several nature reserves, and while it might be too early for some flowers, the natural beauty is always present.
Bundle up and take a family walk along the coastal paths. The scenery can be breathtaking, and it’s a great way to get some fresh air.
