Ellie’s Haven

Ellie’s Haven is a charity providing relief to families caring round-the-clock for children with long-term life-limiting conditions and disabilities by offering holidays and short breaks in a safe, tranquil supportive environment. This is provided in especially adapted, purpose built accommodation near Looe in Cornwall. It includes sessions in a sensory studio, if required/appropriate.
Its success is derived from the fact that parents/guardians, siblings, carers and others are able to attend as well so that the children can enjoy these holidays together with the people who care for and support them. A full range of facilities is offered to both the children and their loved ones to make the experience as enjoyable as possible.
