In 2015 Teddy20 were delighted to purchase a luxury 39ft static caravan in Bowleaze Cove, Weymouth. This was after months of crazy fundraising to achieve our dream of offering free holidays to children undergoing cancer treatment in the Wessex region and their family.
We wanted to offer a home from home holiday providing much needed breaks away from the hospital environment. It is our aim to enable families going through this ordeal to spend quality time together and make precious memories. For a brief time, the children can relax and forget all about hospital life.
Holidays at Ted’s shack are available to children undergoing cancer treatment in the Wessex Region and by a referral from their health care professional – CLIC Sargent welfare team or their hospital.
Ted’s Shack is a luxury 8 berth holiday home situated on a 5-star resort in Dorset.
It has a double bedroom, two twin bedrooms and a pull-out sofa bed in the lounge. It is fully equipped with bedding and towels. We have a travel cot and a high chair. Ted’s Shack is fully centrally heated, double glazed and has an electric fire. There is a flat screen TV, DVD player and an X Box. We have numerous children’s DVD, games and books and adult DVD’s also. There is a fully fitted kitchen with fridge/freezer, cooker and microwave – all crockery is in situ including tea towels and dishcloths.
It is obviously your responsibility to ensure your child has everything it needs during your stay.
On site, there is an indoor swimming pool with slides and toddler area, outdoor swimming pool, Play Park, indoor soft play area and lounge for parents to relax and have a coffee. There is also a gym, health spa, sportsman’s bar, restaurant and nightclub providing evening entertainment. There is also a children’s club called “Boomers”.
We are situated in a beautiful cove in West Dorset with a fun fair, walks, cycling, a beach and many other attractions nearby.
