February Half Term Holidays

Escape to the stunning beaches of Cornwall for a fun-packed February half-term holiday in St Ives. Make the most of the first school break of the year and enjoy a blast of fresh salty air along with a dose of the laid-back coastal lifestyle. Wrap up for a bracing walk along the crowd-free beaches and stunning South West Coast Path, fly kites in the ocean breeze and hunt for critters in the rock pools, then warm up in your cosy cottage a pebble’s throw from the sea. As well as the stunning scenery at your fingertips, St Ives and its surrounds also boast a plethora of all-weather attractions from the Tate St Ives to world-class sea-view spas.

With a heady mix of gob-smacking scenery and world-class attractions, St Ives is the perfect destination to spend the February half-term holidays. Book a luxury holiday cottage nudging some of Cornwall’s finest wave-lashed beaches and enjoy quality family time by the seaside.

Before crowds of summer holidaymakers descend on the town, February is one of the best months to mosey around the cobbled, harbour-side streets, dip into the galleries and studios, and fill your shopping bags with local artisan goodies from handmade chocolates to locally-inspired artwork.

Between the beaches and the boutiques, stop and fuel up on hearty local food in the Michelin-starred restaurants and family-friendly cafés that line the waters’ edge. Dine on fresh seafood as you watch the fishing boats putter in and out of the harbour, unwind with a cocktail and a cracking sea view, or hunker down for a feast while you watch the winter storms scud in over the ocean.

With such stunning scenery beckoning you outside to explore, make sure you wrap up warm and strike out along the sandy beaches and the staggering coast path. If you’re brave you can even don a winter wetsuit and hit the surf while the waves are crowd free.

Then come back to your home away from home and warm up by the roaring fire, sink into the hot tub, or simply lap up the laid-back coastal lifestyle from the comfort of your stylish self-catering holiday pad.

All of our February half-term breaks are subject to a minimum 7-night stay unless booked at short notice.
