Unfortunately due to the Coronavirus pandemic we had to cancel all of our 2020 holidays but we’re now busy planning ahead for the 2021 season. We’re committed to resuming our holidays just as soon as it’s safe to do so, even if Covid-19 regulations mean that we have to do things a little differently.
We’re excited about our new venue for the 2021 holidays. Ellwood Cottages are situated in the peaceful hamlet of Woolland near Blandford and are surrounded by beautiful countryside. The cottages will provide an ideal base for a relaxing break. The fully accessible and superbly equipped accommodation is grouped around a central courtyard. Our guests will be able to enjoy the tranquil gardens and also have use of the indoor heated splash pool.
If you are interested in applying for a holiday in 2021 or in joining our amazing team of volunteers or if you would just like to know more about our activities, please get in touch with our coordinator by calling 01202 375006 or using the contact form on this website.
