After Umbrage is a UK registered charity that provides free, short breaks to carers looking after loved ones with life-limiting conditions.

The charity offer FREE four day breaks in their self-catering cottages in tranquil and comfortable surroundings.
The breaks help to give carers a chance to rest and re-charge before returning to their unpaid caring roles for their loved ones living with life limiting and sometimes terminal conditions. 

This offer is also available during the first year of bereavement which is a very difficult time.

Carers are offered up to three stays of four days each including during the first year of bereavement. The whole family is welcome in the two bedroom cottage – one double and one twin room. 

Small dogs are also welcome though please understand it is a small cottage and unsuitable for large dogs.

Referral forms are available on every page of their website for you to download and take to your carer support organisation for authorisation. Their role is to verify that you are a carer.

Download one of their referral forms and take to either your local Hospice or GP or your carer support organisation. Once signed send it back to them at PO BOX 1310, OUNDLE, PETERBOROUGH, PE2 2PE. After Umbrage 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. Once booked a FULLY REFUNDABLE £50.00 deposit is required.
