A Bit of a Break is growing a portfolio of gifted, unfilled time in self-catering cottages, to offer families living with terminal illness a chance to spend time with their loved ones.

We continue to build up a portfolio of properties in beautiful places then try and match the needs of our referred guests with a break.

Our aim is to increase the number of stays on offer, year on year, so that we can open up the chance of a short break to growing numbers of people.

We are asking property owners for the time in their holiday home to be gifted free; however, the fund pays for overhead costs such as cleaning, laundry, heating and booking fees.
