Caravan Holidays


Caravan holidays 2016

Heartline has two caravan holiday homes for our registered families to use when their heart child can be included in the stay. Our caravan holidays are a heavily discounted benefit to our Heartline Families.

See 2017 dates and prices…

Feedback on our holiday homes from families is often absolutely glowing, not least because they are both in such beautiful areas which offer so much for families to do. There are always some weeks not booked (even, sometimes, in the school holidays), so please think about making use of this fabulous resource when you are planning your holiday.

Mablethorpe Caravan

Mable 1 int

One of our caravans is on the Golden Sands Park, Mablethorpe, Lincolnshire see: Golden Sands and accommodates eight people. Our caravan is now situated near to the facilities of the park but still not far from the stunningly beautiful beach. There is loads to do for all the family whether it is swimming in one of the pools or taking part in the sports and leisure activities on offer, so there will never be a dull moment.

Oakdene Caravan

What happens if you can’t go?

 

Heartline has to pay site fees for the caravans whether they are occupied or not, which is why we have to charge a non-refundable deposit. But we understand that bad things can happen – if you are able to let us know as early as possible that you cannot take up the booking because of unavoidable problems, we will consider returning your deposit and booking fees.

Heartline gratefully acknowledges the many friends whose donations mean that we can continue to offer discounted caravan holidays to our families, in particular Sarah’s Star Fund (McKain family) and the Sykes family. Without the support of Nicola Garbutt we would be struggling to provide Families with a prompt and friendly administration. Thanks also to Liam and the management at Oakdene Park, the management at Golden Sands, Mablethorpe, the Garbutt family, Caroline Mutton, Wendy Lynch and the Cooper family for ensuring that the new caravans are properly equipped.
