Things to do in February
Poor old February, those 28 days often get short shrift, caught between the excitement of Christmas and promise of some seasonal relief with the fast approaching Spring. Short, still a bit cold and damp it may be, but wrap up warm and you can still get out and enjoy all Cornwall has to offer. There’s nothing better than a good old fashioned wellie walk – get suited & booted and see some of the beautiful woodland areas or your favourite beach.
Plus Cornwall’s got plenty of family activities on offer this February:
Sing a long to Grease at the Hall for Cornwall - To book and find out more visit the Hall for Cornwall website.
For really special experience head to Newquay Zoo and get up close and personal to some of their iconic animals at feeding times.
Families can enjoy some fun time at all of the National Trust properties across Cornwall - at Pendennis Castle from 13 - 17 Feb it's Terrific Tudors, at Lanhydrock there is a Childrens Garden trail but check out the National Trust website for other events throughout Cornwall in February

Have the drive of your life
As the weather starts to warm up what better time to pull on your sunnies and take a scenic drive. Head for the small village of Zennor, near St Ives, and treat yourself to the stretch of road that winds towards towards Sennen. Rivalling great drives from across the world, it enjoys magnificent sweeping views across the west Cornish coast and beyond so roll down the window, put your favourite tune on the stereo and keep the speedo down low, for you’ll want to take your time with this journey. The road quite literally hugs the remote coastline and falls away across fields that rest on mighty cliffs. With every twist and turn, the view gets even more glorious than before until Sennen calls the journey to a worthy climax with the famous Longships lighthouse in view.
