We have two respite cottages, available to enjoy for a short break away with the person you care for. Stays at the cottage are not with the person they care for. The carer has time away from the person they care for sometimes at home, maybe in hospital or visiting family on the mainland or another town. Very, very rarely do both come together.
Set in a restful ‘homelike’ environment, our staff are on hand to ensure you have some valuable ‘me time’ and can simply relax.
Located within easy distance of food stores and shops, the cottages are available for a one-night stay or longer.
- Enjoy relaxation time and recharge.
- Focus on your own health and wellbeing.
