February half-term fun at Trengwainton

Children exploring in wellies at Trengwainton Garden, Cornwall

February half-term fun starts on Sunday 16 February when there’ll be the chance to get active with a fun fitness trail, pot up some seeds and generally shake off the winter blues with welly walking and plant spotting.

Feb fun fitness trail

Find some light-hearted inspiration for your New Year's resolutions with a fun, nature-inspired fitness trail. Stop at various points around the garden and see if you can do the bunny hop, waterless doggy paddle, seagull stretch or other challenges.  

Seed plating

Head to the orchard and you’ll be able to pot up some seeds to take home and grow butterfly and bee friendly flowers. As well as helping nature’s vital pollinators, growing plants is no.41 of the 50 things to do before you're 11¾.

Other ‘50 things’

Why not bring a friend and go on a nature adventure around the garden? (no. 50). If you pop on a pair of wellies you’ve also got no. 6 covered (Go welly wandering). Discover what’s in a pond at this time of year (no. 35) or watch the wintery clouds go whizzing by on the Terrace (no.33).

Plant spotting

The garden will be waking up after its winter sleep so it’s a great time to wrap up warm and explore winding wooded paths, cross bridges and streams and discover what plants are stirring. Pick up a plant spotter sheet from the reception to see how many you can tick off.
