As the days are getting longer February is the perfect time to go out and about and explore Cornwall without the crowds. Half term holidays are quiet as many people opt to go skiing at this time, leaving the region uncluttered and perfect.
We're a very pet friendly most pubs will welcome your four legged companion as long as they (and the owners) are well behaved. So why not walk the coastal path, and earn yourself a happy hound and a hearty pub meal.
If you've small children who aren't up to hikes on the beach, how about some of these activities. They're also good places to visit during rainy day in Cornwall any time of the year.
The Eden Project
The best thing to do with the children in February is Ice Skating at The Eden Project. The temporary rink is quite a magically affair, and kids of all ages throughly enjoy the experience. If Granny or Grandad isn't so keen on falling down on ice, the trip can be combined with a visit to the biomes.
Mawgan Church Daffodil Festival
A slightly less arduous activity is the daffodil festival near Gweek, Helston at Meneage Parish Church. Cornwall is blessed with fantastic daffodil growing conditions and you will be truly surprised as the variety of shapes, sizes and colours the traditional flower can produce. 10.30am-4.30pm 14th-16th February.
Hall for Cornwall, Truro
