February Half Term Family Holidays

By the time that February half term arrives, most families are searching for a chance to get away on a family holiday that defies the British winter. If you're looking for a February half term family holiday to blow away the cobwebs and those winter blues, we've an exciting, affordable recommendation for you.

Spring may be on the horizon but there's still time to enjoy the British countryside as it shifts out of its winter clothing. Book a February half term holiday in the Northern Lake District to enjoy bracing walks and dramatic scenery with far fewer other visitors than there are in the summer. Our 4-night full board break staying in a cosy country house is the ideal choice to make the most of this great holiday location.


Stay at Derwentwater, our comfortable, well-equipped country house in this fantastic Lake District location, right on the shores of beautiful Derwent Water. We've amazing views and guided family walks right on our doorstep, with a choice of four walks per day, each led by an experienced leader. Perhaps you'll climb Scafell Pike, England's highest peak, or tackle Skiddaw and Helvellyn. Back at the house, the massive gardens sweep down to the lake shore and there's lots of room for games. If the weather turns though or you want to retreat inside after a blustery day on the tops, we've lots of indoor activities to enjoy as well while you warm up, swap stories and make new friends during your family holiday in February.

If your children are after action, have a holiday as well as a real outdoors adventure.
