Respite Property Purchase Completed

20 January 2024

We are proud to announce that the purchase of the charity’s first respite holiday home on the Isle of Wight is now complete. The property will provide respite holidays for families who are struggling to cope with the huge impact of a cancer diagnosis.

Located less than one mile from Yarmouth’s car ferry port, our respite cottage is close to many of the Isle of Wight’s best beaches, walking paths, historic attractions and adventure parks. It is the perfect location from which to explore the island.

With two bedfrooms (upstairs) the house sleeps up to five people thanks to the sofa bed in the lounge. There is a king size bed in the main bedroom and two single beds in the second bedroom. There is a bathroom on the first floor with a toilet, sink and shower (over bath).

Downstairs, the main living area is open plan with a well-equipped kitchen and a spacious lounge area. There is also a downstairs toilet. To the front of the house, there is a small decked area with views across the park’s beautiful communal lawns. There is also a small lawn and decking area to the rear of the house.

Please note that the park is a car free zone thereby providing a safe environment for children. The free car-park is located 100 metres away from the house but trolleys are available to easily transport baggage from your car as required.

If you are interesting in nominating a family for a respite break at our new holiday home, our nomination form can be found here. More information on the house istelf can be found here here.
