February half term things to do!

February half-term is a promising and exciting time to visit Cornwall: the days stretch ever so slightly longer, with signs of Spring dotted all around. Of course, it’s the first school break of the year, and what better way to start your 2023 adventures than with a family trip to Cornwall. 

Don’t shy away from everything that a Cornish winter getaway has to offer. Our beaches will take your breath away any day of the year, and you can still enjoy all your favourite activities, such as surfing, paddleboarding, and sea swims… just don’t forget a wetsuit!

Heligan Night Garden

Something lovely to get you in the festive spirit.

At this time of the year, it is difficult to get excited about a night out. With the cost-of-living crisis looming over us all and world affairs which are sometimes too scary to contemplate.

If, like me, things have been a little overwhelming recently, then let me share a little secret.

I recently visited The Lost Gardens of Heligan for an evening of what can only be described as a little slice of heaven. The light displays for their current event, Heligan Night Garden are truly something to behold.
