Whiteleys Retreat

Unique countryside retreat offering FREE vital respite to children/young people living with cancer or other life altering illnesses in Scotland.

Nestled in the beautiful Ayrshire countryside, the retreat offers families the opportunity for relaxation, relief, reflection, recreation and building resilience. Most importantly, spending this time together.

Our high quality, five star assisted catering cottages are surrounded by beautiful gardens, countryside and local wildlife in addition to our Garden of Wellbeing, sensory playpark, animals and an area for reflection.

Whiteleys was once a working farm, is now owned and run by the charity. Since its purchase in early 2018, we have worked hard, to convert the cottages into safe, clean and comfortable places of respite for families. Attention to detail can be seen throughout each cottage and although alike in decor, we have ensured that the Main Cottage is fully accessible for children/young people in wheelchairs with the addition of profiling beds, portable hoist, shower cradle and other additional aids for bathing.

While we strive to provide the highest standards of respite, we listen to families, through consultation and weekly feedback for their views on their respite experience. We learn through this and adapt our facilities and services accordingly.
