After Umbrage aims to provide idyllic holiday accommodation in some of the more scenic areas of rural Britain so that those who take care of loved ones with a terminal illness may have the break away that they truly deserve.


After Umbrage is pleased to announce that we are now able to help even more carers. We have extended the remit of the charity to include:

Anyone caring for a loved one with a life limiting condition up to three stays at Kingham cottage.

As well as being able to offer carers who have sadly been bereaved, up to four nights at the cottage within the first twelve months.

We really want to help so please spread the word! Here are some lovely comments from our guests so far.

“Thank you so much for letting us stay in Kingham Cottage. We had a lovely time and it provided us with the perfect excuse to go away – just the four of us – and spend some time together. We wouldn’t have done so otherwise, and it was a precious few days, with lots of laughter and tears.”

“Thank you for the privilege of allowing us to stay in this beautiful cottage. We had a lovely relaxing time and the weather was beautiful.”

After Umbrage has the use of the lovely Kingham Cottage two miles south of Bath.

There is plenty to do just on your doorstep. There are plenty of fabulous walks in the area, and Bath itself is just five minutes away, a World Heritage site with wonderful attractions to suit any taste.

To book your get-away, just follow these simple steps:

  1. Download one of our referral forms a take to either your local Hospice or GP. Once signed send it back to us at PO BOX 1310, OUNDLE, PETERBOROUGH, PE2 2PE.
  2. We will then contact you with your booking code and instructions. You’ll then be able to see when the cottage is available, and choose your time.
  3. Once booked a FULLY REFUNDABLE £50.00 deposit is required. We love our After Umbrage cottage and know you will too, but accidents happen and we want to keep it beautiful for everyone.

That’s it. You’re in, and we hope you have a fantastic stay! Kingham cottage sleeps up to four so please feel free to bring friends or loved ones if you wish, or just take a little time for yourself. After all, you’ve earned it.
