Kerry Farm Supported Breaks for the Whole Family, Wales

When someone has a disability, illness or injury, or is living with a mental ill condition, finding the perfect holiday can be tricky. Kerry Farm is a unique holiday in the beautiful Welsh countryside designed so that you can enjoy great family moments together.  Kerry Farm situated in the stunning Welsh countryside offers supported breaks for the whole family. At Kerry Farm the choice is yours, what you want to do, where you want to go and most importantly what level of support you’d like from the team. Their qualified life and family coaches are on hand to support you to enjoy the activities, take time to reflect or talk with you about ways to achieve your goals. Every holiday at the farm is planned around the individual families with a wide range of activities available. You may choose to spend time with the animals, enjoying the outdoor activities or taking part in arts and crafts, or cooking with produce from the garden. They can arrange the exclusive use of a local bowling alley or for you to go swimming at a nearby hotel. The team also have a good local knowledge and contacts so you may want to explore rural Wales.

Kerry Farm can support young people to gain some of the knowledge and skills they need to make choices in life. This can be particularly important at key transition stages in life such as in between primary and secondary school, when leaving full time education or when considering leaving home. The team can also work with parents and carers to understand these transitional stages and the impact for them. “Kerry Farm is the place people need to catch their breath, and find the strength, skills and support to face the world” Dominique.

With a choice of cottages they feel they have something for everyone.
