The Cottages

After Umbrage provides short term respite, holiday accommodation for four people. It is free of charge to those caring for loved ones with life limiting and terminal conditions. We would also like to express our deepest condolences by offering breaks to carers within their first 12 months of bereavement.

If you are a carer and need a bit of a break, we would like to invite you to stay for up to four nights, completely free of charge. You deserve it, and more importantly, you need it to keep providing the care that you do. We are honoured to offer you the chance to do just that.

If you are not a carer but would like to stay in our cottage and support After Umbrage  you are most welcome.. The funds created from your booking enables us to offer free respite breaks to carers. You make a direct impact, thank you!

Kingham Cottage – Bath

We aim to provide free, relaxing holiday accommodation in some of the more beautiful areas of rural Britain to those who take care of loved ones with a life-limiting condition. We understand how important it can be to take even a short break and to rediscover you again.

Kingham Cottage is a detached, beautifully converted, former farm building with a superb interior, offering great charm and original character. Beams, stained glass windows, oak floors, oak window seats, and original exposed stonework are all featured in this delightful stone cottage. There is plenty to do just on your doorstep; fabulous walks in the countryside and Bath itself just five minutes away, a World Heritage site with wonderful attractions to suit any taste.

Teddy Cottage – Oundle

Teddy Cottage is a period property centrally positioned a short walk from Oundle marketplace. This two-bedroomed terraced property has a wonderful relaxing feel and has been lovingly decorated by our After Umbrage team with huge thanks to all those that have donated furniture.

Walking around the alleyways and paths of Oundle is a delight, with St Peter’s Church (with the tallest spire in Northamptonshire) to help guide you back to the central “conservation area”, with mostly listed buildings, many of which date from the seventeenth century.

There are also many walking, cycling, and kayaking opportunities to enjoy nearby and much local wildlife to spot, including the omnipresent red kites.

There is something to explore nearby for everyone whilst remaining a tranquil haven to stay.

More information coming on the 17th July! Check our socials for updates.
