Respite Breaks

One of our goals is to ensure that those affected by cancer can have a short break. We offer three and four night breaks at a Haven site called Weymouth Bay Holiday Park.

The holidays are from Monday to Friday or Friday to Monday and are available from March till December excluding the school holidays.


The nominated beneficiary must : 

  • have been diagnosed with cancer and undergoing treatment or has received treatment within the last six months
  • or the beneficiary is terminally ill with cancer
  • be living in Dorset, Wiltshire, Somerset or Bath and North East Somerset

Nomination Form

This must be completed by the person nominating the beneficiary for a respite break to stay at Matt’s Respite Retreats caravan in Haven Park, Weymouth Bay.
We have a modern caravan that is fully equipped with:

  • A modern kitchen with a hob, oven and microwave
  • Spacious lounge with Digital TV and DVD Player
  • Enough space for up to six people to go on holiday
  • Smoke alarm and central heating
  • A veranda and patio space
Galliott Carpets

Our holiday home is spacious with a well equipped kitchen. It is located 15min flat walk (buggy friendly) from the seaside in a Haven park, which offers a swimming pool with lazy river, live entertainment and play areas for kids. Car parking space situated next to the caravan for one car. CHANGEOVER DAYS ARE MONDAY OR FRIDAY.

The Weymouth Bay Haven park is unlike the other Haven parks that we have stayed in or seen. It is much more relaxed and less crowded.

The caravan is situated minutes from the main complex. A small playground is located opposite, great for the kids and you can watch them from the balcony or lounge area.

One of the main ways Matt's Respite Retreats funds the Respite Breaks offered is by renting the caravan during the School Holidays.  Book a break and help us to provide more breaks to those affected by cancer.
