Looking for something to keep the family busy over the February half-term? Desperate for a break after the long slog that was January? Fancy a last-minute trip to the seaside?

We’ve got you covered! We still have plenty of availability within our portfolio and with £50 off a half-term booking of three nights or more in one of our family-friendly properties there has never been a better time to take a family break at the seaside! Check out our available properties to see where you could be staying this half-term!

To give you some extra motivation to book, below we have provided a sample of the family-friendly activities going on in and around Brighton over half-term week, so don’t miss out and book today!

Perhaps the biggest draw for the family is the Brighton Science Festival which for the thirteenth year running takes place over February half-term. The festival is held over nine days and consists of an array of activities and workshops aimed at 7 - 14 year olds. It is estimated that more than 10,000 kids and their parents turn out to enjoy the events taking place. While there are many events being held the flagship event is Bright Sparks which takes place at Hove Park School over the first weekend of the festival and will see more than 50 stalls, stands and shows covering all sorts from robots, to telescopes, to earthworms!

Away from the Science Festival there is plenty more going on to keep the kids entertained. This year Shrove Tuesday falls within the February half-term week, so you could make pancakes to your heart’s content in any of our self-catering properties, or if you don’t fancy cleaning up the mess you can go along to one of many cafes and restaurants which will be dishing up pancakes on the day. Yellowave Sports Centre and Cafe is hosting a Shrove Tuesday Kids Trail complete with a free American pancake for the kids when you spend £5 in the cafe.

Whilst it is great to visit Brighton to experience the lively city atmosphere, we are also fortunate to be located next to the beautiful natural surroundings of the South Downs National Park which makes for a great day out with the family. Within the South Downs you will find Drusillas Park in which there is a small zoo and several adventure themed play areas - perfect for kids! Another option is Wakehurst Botanical Gardens, a 500 acre space with ornamental gardens, woodlands and a nature reserve which this half-term is teaming up with the Climate Coalition to host a #ShareTheLove week where kids will be able to show their love of nature with crafts, trails and other activities.

With all this going on and much more, take advantage of our special offers and book a hal-term break now!
