Green Island Holiday Trust

"Providing holidays for people with disabilities on the shores of Poole Harbour"

Who We Help, Why We Help & the Difference It Makes

We provide supported holidays for people with disabilities who live in Hampshire and Dorset. We organise six-one week holidays a year staying in accessible accommodation at Holton Lee, a well-being centre situated in beautiful countryside between Poole and Wareham. The holidays provide not only a break for the holidaymaker but also respite for their carer/s.

Our Holidays

The holidays are held during the summer months at Holton Lee, a 350 acre estate with fully accessible facilities, located on the edge of Poole Harbour in Dorset.   This delightful estate has woodlands, heathland, large open spaces and harbour views.  It is home to deer, wild ponies and a lot of birds.

Holidaymakers are accommodated in the Woodland and GatewayCottages alongside a dedicated and experienced team of volunteers who provide 24 hour care and support.    Prior to the holiday each guest will be visited by the Trust’s Coordinator so that the care and support needs of each individual can be assessed. Each holiday starts on a Saturday and finishes the following Friday giving guests a chance to experience a week away from their normal routine.    Based around a varied programme of activities, the group share a week of friendship, laughter and good food.

On site holidaymakers can explore the beautiful surroundings at Holton Lee via its network of wheelchair friendly paths or venture further afield by a wheelchair friendly tractor and trailer or pony and trap. There are also opportunities to go on an eco-tour or watch birds from the hide on the edge of the reed beds.  During the week, holidaymakers can participate in art and craft sessions, musical evenings, and enjoy barbecues (weather permitting) and meals out. Tailored to the group, off site activities may include a boat trip around Poole Harbour and visits to local attractions and towns.
