Who are Gwennie's Getaways?

Gwennie’s Getaways is a charity based in Slaithwaite, Huddersfield. We provide families that are living with or affected by Dementia with a respite break at one of our caravans based at Primrose Valley, Filey and Newton Hall, Blackpool.

About Gwennie's

Gwennie’s Getaways is committed to providing short term breaks to those with Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia and their family or carers. We have the use of five  beautiful static caravans, four of which are based at Primrose Valley, a seaside resort on the East Coast in Filey and one at Newton Hall Holiday Park, near Blackpool. 

Each caravan is double glazed and has a full central heating system keeping it warm and cosy in the cooler months. They each have disabled access, two bathrooms and are fully equipped with the usual home comforts allowing for a comfortable and restful stay.

The Memory Café

Gwennie’s Getaways has also committed to helping those in our local area and have set up a popular Memory Café at The Waterhead in Slaithwaite (Huddersfield) on a Tuesday.
