DEBRA Holiday Homes

Last updated 20/01/21

Notice to Members

Unfortunately, due to the new lockdown restrictions and uncertainty as to when the Government restrictions will be eased, it is likely that all DEBRA holiday homes will remain closed until at least 2 April 2021.

This will no doubt be disappointing news for members who have already booked to stay at our holiday homes before Easter,  however we will be in contact soon so that you can decide if you would like to re book your holiday for a later date in 2021 or prefer to receive a refund for any payments already made.

We are still taking bookings for 2021 and if you would like to book now you can do so without having to pay a deposit until it has been confirmed that the holiday park you have chosen will be open again.  

As these are uncertain times for us all, I would like to reassure you that, if you are unable to go on holiday for any reason any payments made will be refunded – so there will be no cost to DEBRA members if holiday bookings are cancelled.   

We look forward to re-opening our holiday homes as soon as government restrictions are lifted, so please check our website regularly for update. Please email membership@debra.org.uk if you have any queries.


 

Planning your holiday

Whatever you look forward to whilst on holiday, DEBRA Holiday Homes will provide the ideal environment for everyone to enjoy a much-needed break. DEBRA currently has five holiday homes across the UK – Brynteg (North Wales), NorfolkPoole, Weymouth and Windermere (Lake District) – all of which are offered at highly discounted rates for DEBRA Members.

DEBRA Holiday Homes are located in some of the most popular and beautiful 5-star rated parks in the UK, which offer a wide range of facilities and entertainment programmes suitable for all ages and where you can be as active or relaxed as you want. Come rain or shine, you will be able to find there is always plenty to do wherever you choose to stay.

We know that holiday planning can be stressful, especially when trying to find suitable accommodation and facilities for families living with EB. That’s why DEBRA has, where possible, adapted the holiday homes to meet the diverse needs of the EB Community.

Note: Due to Coronavirus (COVID-19), please check the park website for the most up-to-date information on which facilities and activities are available.

 

About our holiday homes

Each DEBRA Holiday Home has a slightly different layout; however, every home has an accessible ramp for outside ease of access, and there are also a range of bathroom options available between the homes. All adaptions have been made to demonstrate our commitment to meeting the needs of the EB Community.

The homes are available to hire throughout most of the year at highly discounted rates for all DEBRA Members – a unique membership benefit that very few patient organisations offer. The homes in North Wales, Norfolk and the Lake District are even available during the Christmas and New Year holidays.

There is a priority booking system to ensure equal opportunity for DEBRA Members to book time away in one of the DEBRA Holiday Homes. Please check the booking your stay page to find out when you are able to book.

Each holiday park offers a wide range of events, activities and entertainment programmes to enjoy. Please check that the facilities – both in the holiday home and at the holiday park – are suitable for your needs before booking your stay, and note any additional charges that may apply (e.g. launderette, extra activities).

Note: Due to Coronavirus (COVID-19), please check the park website for the most up-to-date information on which facilities and activities are available.
