What's on at February Half Term?
Bampfield Farm is ideally situated for access to wonderful coastline and beautiful beaches. But sometimes you just want to go somewhere where the kids will be amused, leaving everyone happy!
We are within easy reach of some of North Devon's most popular attractions - The Big Sheep, The Milky Way Adventure Park and Exmoor Zoo, to name but a few.
The National Trust property, Arlington Court, and the beautiful walk at Heddon's mouth are also firm family favourites as is the RHS garden at Rosemoor.
This February half term (11-19 February) Arlington Court is staging "Arlington Needs Ewe" - follow the trail around the grounds to find the names of all the lost sheep.
There is also "The Great Sheep Dip" - you are asked to guess which sheep will lamb first with prizes for the winners . And then there is a very interesting sounding event entitled "monsters under the microscope" - visitors are invited to discover a disgusting world of microscopic monsters and tiny terrors that spend all their days chewing up the NT's precious objects. The conservation scene investigation laboratory is open!
RHS Rosemoor invites you to "banish boredom" this half term with a number of events: on Monday there is a clay bird workshop for children aged 8-12, on Tuesday under 8s can make tin can wind chimes, and on Thursday Goodleigh's own Mrs Recycle will be running a workshop to make hanging masterpieces from unwanted materials - again for under 8s. Check out Rosemoor's website for timings and more details.
The Big Sheep is open all half term and has the added attraction in the winter of a toboggan and ice skating slope. They are also expecting their first lambs in February half term.
With all these things to add to our on-site attractions to amuse the kids, Bampfield is the perfect place to spend half term.
