Half Term is nearly here

Posted on 7 February

 With the first school holiday of this year nearly here it's a great time to consider an early spring break in Cornwall. There lots of events planned for the week in and around Looe and below you will find a list of just a few of the activities. The spring flowers are appearing and the days are getting longer so why not book a cottage or apartment for a break now?


10 - 18 FebEarly Man at The Eden Project
Get ready for a prehistoric adventure of epic proportions at Eden this half-term. In association with Early Man, the major new film release from Nick Park and Aardman.

Bring your tribe to Eden for intrepid adventures and behind-the-scenes fun based on the latest adventure by the creators of Chicken Run and Wallace & Gromit. 

The film, starring Tom Hiddleston, Eddie Redmayne, Maisie Williams, Timothy Spall and Richard Ayoade, is the first feature directed by the four-time Oscar-winner Nick Park since 2005’s Wallace & Gromit adventure The Curse of the Were-Rabbit.

Set at the dawn of time, when prehistoric creatures roamed the earth, Early Man tells the story of courageous caveman hero Dug and his best friend Hognob as they unite his tribe against a mighty enemy to save their home.
