Patrington Haven Holiday Park is set in beautiful, tranquil countryside and is an ideal location for all age groups. It is very family-friendly, with a tropically heated swimming pool as well as a fishing lake and children's play park. Our holiday home is a non-smoking facility sleeping up to six people and is fully equipped, including everything you would expect to find in holiday park accommodation (duvets, pillows and blankets are provided but you will need to bring duvet covers, bed linen, towels and tea towels. It is also disabled friendly, with features like a walk-in shower and plenty of room to manoeuvre a wheelchair.

Passes are provided for each person so all amenities can be accessed entirely free of charge to service users, carers and their familes (a donation towards running costs is always appreciated). A deposit of £50 will be required to be handed in on arrival at Patrington holiday home (this should take the form of a cheque, which will be returned to you without being cashed when you leave under normal circumstances). Pets are not allowed. Insurance is not provided for occupants and their possessions. We would therefore recommend that you consider holiday insurance. Occupants who use the holiday home must be aware that they do so at their own risk.

What care is provided at Patrington Haven?

The holiday home is independent of, and quite separate from, other services offered by Dove House Hospice and so, unfortunately, we are not able to offer care in this facility. Consequently, service users and carers must be satisfied that their medical and nursing needs are able to be met independently of the hospice (our staff will assist service users to decide whether the holiday home is appropriate for their holiday use when booking). Any special arrangements required are the responsibility of the service user, carer and family to arrange.
