With February half term just around the corner, you might be thinking of things to do with the kids to try and keep them away from the lure of the TV and games consoles.  We have compiled a list of things to do in Cornwall during the February half term break which we think offer plenty of fun and entertainment for the whole family.  Read on for inspiration!

Bushcraft For Kids

Cotehele House (approx. 20 min drive from Crylla Valley)

Feb 12th, 13th & 14th

If your children are adventurous at heart, then why not give them a real-life Minecraft-esque experience where they will learn to build a shelter, light a controlled fire and learn survival skills in the wild!  This event takes place at Cotehele, a stunning National Trust estate with house, gardens, quay and mill.
