Your Guide to School Holidays 2022

We love all the seasons in Cornwall, and recommend you visit to experience them all! Whichever is your favourite time of the year, take a look at our guide to the main school holidays so you can plan ahead and book in 2022’s family holidays at the Cornish coast.

February half term: 19 – 26 February 2022

Longer lighter days, daffodils starting to open their buds, quiet beaches, and warming coffees in cafes by the coast; February is a much overlooked time of year to visit.

Easter holidays: 9 – 23 April 2022

The Easter school holidays differ throughout the UK, with the Easter weekend in the middle of April this year, from Friday 15th – Monday 18th April 2022.

By April the weather is definitely milder – and can often be glorious! Spring flowers are flourishing, the sea is sparkling, and Cornwall’s many beautiful gardens burst into life.

May half term: 28 May – 4 June 2022

The early summer days of May are made for outdoor adventures: sea swimming, surfing, hiking and cycling. Bring the kids, bring the dog, and make the most of Cornwall’s vast beaches and miles of coastal paths.

Summer holidays: 23 July – 3 September 2022

Picture perfect in the summer sun, Cornwall’s sandy beaches and blue Atlantic swell are hard to beat. Book now to turn dreams of lazy beach days paddling and picnicking into a reality!

October half term: 22 – 29 October 2022

October brings with it golden sunshine, crisp days and beautiful changing colours in the woodlands. Enjoy a calm and restful autumnal break during this tranquil time of year.

Christmas and New Year: 18 December 2022 – 2 January 2023

Do Christmas a little differently next year… Wake to the sound of the waves, walk off mince pies with a stroll along the beach, and join in with the Boxing Day sea dip at Perranporth! We have properties to suit hosting a family Christmas by the coast.

We’re also taking bookings for 2023, so if you have a Cornwall self-catering holiday in mind already, give us a call or search availability here, and reserve your chosen dates now!
