How it Works

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

We have been very kindly provided with time in magical parts of the country, which we are able to offer to families and carers alike.

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. It can also help the family with travel costs, provide a carer if required, and pay for a welcome hamper of tasty treats for when the family arrives at the accommodation.
