Families love spending time out together in our holiday homes
Good news! The Government have announced that Holiday Parks can re-open to guests from 6th July 2020, following strict social distancing and safety guidelines. At this stage, in line with the government's guidance, the on-site park facilities will be limited - particularly access to leisure and restaurant facilities.
We are now taking provisional bookings, however please note we have limited availability for July and August, so do consider going for a weekend (or even a long weekend) during term time.
Whilst we understand how important it is for the families we support to have a break to look forward to, please bear in mind that any provisional bookings made may need to be cancelled closer to the time should government advice change.
If you would like to make an enquiry about booking please see How To Book Your Respite Break below.
Please refer to our full official Covid-19 statement for up to date information about how our support services are adapting to the evolving situation.
We are very fortunate to own two stunning cabins at Shorefield Country Park and a fabulous beach hut near New Milton in the New Forest. We have also recently purchased a beautiful lagoon-view caravan at Church Farm Holiday Village in Pagham, West Sussex.
The caravan, cabins and beach hut are available for children and their families for a respite break. We aim to arrange around 100 breaks each year, ranging from long weekends to week-long holidays.
These respite breaks are funded entirely by the charity (aside from a voluntary donation) and are a fantastic way for families to get away from the stress of difficult treatment plans, or simply to enjoy some precious time together. The cabins are well equipped and not too far from home. Having a child with cancer rules out a holiday for many families, and our cabins offer a good alternative.
Please note that we are unable to respond to booking requests, or answer questions about availability without receipt of a booking request form. This is to enable the booking process to be as fair as possible. Bookings will be confirmed at least 3 weeks before the requested time.
The cabins can be booked for up to one week at a time. School holidays tend to get very busy so do consider going for a weekend (or even a long weekend) during term time. The cabins are available all year round (with a month closure in January).
Please note that we do not permit dogs in the Shorefield cabins, however at Church Farm we do allow for one well-behaved dog.
