Our Background

We first opened in 1927 as a home for miners recovering from illnesses or accidents in the pits. From the 1950s we then offered respite for miners and ex-miners for periods of convalescence and recuperation. We have now developed into a medium sized charity delivering short holiday breaks to ex miners and their families throughout the open season which is from May to August each year.

Also if you are a ex-miner or relative of a miner and unsure if you are eligible for a short holiday break please contact 01383 880307

During the closed season we are now opening up our facilities to other charities, voluntary sector, specialised events, private events/functions and groups from any organisation/companies which can benefit from our facilities. We shall orginise your booking and tailor your stay or event to your groups  needs/requirements.

If you would like to make a booking or have a general enquiry please fill out booking form or contact us direct on 01383 880307
