Holidays With Us

We believe that all children, regardless of age, ability or social circumstance, have the right to play in a safe environment. For many children, this is not possible in their daily environment.

A break at The Adventure Farm gives them a fantastic opportunity to escape the traumas of their everyday lives and simply become children again. Here at CAFT we give these children the opportunity to improve the quality of their lives, recognise their potential and achieve their goals.

We show the children and young people that there is a world outside of the world they live in, giving them something to aim for, giving them hope.

    “Thank you for a lovely holiday. I loved the slip and slide. The bbq was lovely. I loved the bedroom and beds were very comfy. My favourite activity was feeding the alpacas because they were so furry. I also enjoyed getting eggs from the chicken hut. My favourite day was Thursday because we had the treasure hunt and we made pirate costumes. Thank you for my DVD, my whole family has watched it.” .
