The Carers’ Support Centre is currently taking bookings for holidays in their luxury static caravans on the edge of the Cotswolds.

It is open to anyone in the UK but priority is given to local residents in Bristol and South Gloucestershire.
To be eligible for the discounted carers’ rate you must be a carer providing unpaid support to a family member or friend who could not manage without you.
There must be at least one carer per booking. You can book a carers’ holiday either with or without the person you care for.
Money generated through the holiday homes goes back to The Carers’ Support Centre - a charity that provides a range of services to carers.
The holiday homes are located at Hoburne Holiday Parks and offer a fantastic range of facilities, including heated indoor and outdoor pool, sauna and steam room, kids club, soft play, nature trail and a restaurant and bar.
Both sites also have an evening entertainments programme. Participation in all of the facilities is included in the price of your holiday.
There are two and three bedroom caravans which comfortably sleep either four or six people. Larger parties may be accommodated - please check.
There are two wheelchair-friendly caravans. These feature a ramp for access, wide entrance and passage, flat sliding doors, bathroom grab handles, low threshold disabled shower with seat, and movable dining furniture.
Prices may vary but a one week carers holiday costs up to £235 less a commercial holiday company.
