Our philosophy

Our founders, a group of former Scouts, believed that everyone, regardless of their health and circumstances, should have access to relaxation and fun. In other words, a proper holiday!

We specialise in providing family holiday accommodation in static caravans, some are fully accessible and adapted. . We provide these facilities at a substantial discount to the open market for all families or individuals whose lives are disadvantaged – be it through family illness, disability, frailty, or low income

I loved it, it was excellent, clean, great location, accessible, comfortable. From the moment I arrived there were so many lovely moments, the holiday was 100% and more. Thank you for allowing me some “me time” at a price I could afford.

Our story

In the late 1960s, Charles Porter, a former Rover Scout, set about improving his front garden. He installed a wishing well and soon found that people passing by were throwing coins into it. In the first year he raised £400.

Charles had two great-nieces with special needs. He saw how difficult it was for them to go on holiday, so he used the money to purchase an adapted caravan. He then decided the caravan should be made available to families living with special needs. From this small start, the Holiday Homes Trust quickly grew.

We now have eight adapted and two non adapted caravans at ten different holiday parks around the UK. Over 6,000 families have enjoyed holidays with us.
