We’ve rounded up some the best events happening in Cornwall throughout February close to The Valley’s luxurious range of Cornish cottages.

Have a read below and let loose at one of these events before heading back to the comfort of your home away from home.

Turtle awareness week – Newquay’s Blue Reef Aquarium is running Turtle Awareness Week throughout the half-term holidays. The aquarium operates one of the most successful sea turtle rehabilitation and release programmes in the UK and is currently caring for a young loggerhead turtle which stranded on a Cornish beach in January.
Visitors will be able to find out all about the rescue and ongoing treatment programme for the female turtle with an exclusive exhibition featuring images, video and daily updates on her condition.

Meanwhile, get close encounters of the creepy crawly kind with Crocodile Joe and his friends.
