Why book a holiday cottage for February half term?

The Christmas holidays are now a distant memory but with February half term approaching, this is the first opportunity of the year for you and your children to have a much-needed break and leave the winter blues behind.

Because of the time of year, there are some great deals to be found on accommodation, making a half-term holiday with your family even more tempting. Whether it’s for the full week or just a few days, a break over February half term means quality time with your family and the chance to explore new surroundings.

Things to do on February family holidays

Falling at the end of winter, you will watch spring emerge during your holiday. For an action-packed holiday hiking, biking and everything in between, a holiday in the Peak District, Lake District, Snowdonia or Cairngorms will give you plenty to explore and picturesque views to reward your efforts.  

If sightseeing and culture are at the top of your agenda, try a city break in a popular location such as York, Lincoln and Edinburgh. Whilst it’s a little cold to take a dip in the sea, a trip to the coast for a classic family seaside trip to blow away the cobwebs is still a great idea. With fewer crowds than during the peak summer months, it’s a chance to fully experience a coastal town without the hustle and bustle. And to warm you up, how about fish and chips, sitting on a wall looking out at sea – bliss!
