Slideshow Image 1

The Bluebells is our unique holiday home offering respite breaks in the Hampshire countryside, 365 days a year, to the families of children with serious, life-limiting or life-threatening medical conditions.

The house opened in July 2011 and aims to enable 100 families each year to spend a week or a few days in one of its two spacious self-catering apartments, free of charge. A further 500 people will be able to visit The Bluebells for a day and benefit from time playing and relaxing in its leisure facilities.

The Bluebells consists of:

  • two four-bedroom self-catering apartments, each with a lounge and kitchen diner
  • a live-in house keeper's apartment and laundry room
  • an indoor pool with spa
  • an indoor games area with a wide selection of computer games, traditional board games and toys
  • a home cinema
  • a multi-sensory room
  • a music room
  • an art room
  • a therapies room
  • an outdoor adventure play area
  • a nine-hole mini golf course
  • a secret meadow
