Our R&R Retreat Centre offers a landscape and a lifestyle far removed from the hustle and bustle of everyday life
Immersed in rural beauty, and just a short walk from the Jurassic Coast, MYTime’s R&R Retreat Accommodation Centre offers the perfect base to host young carer retreats, as well as corporate away days, team-building activities and adventure get-aways.
Dormitory-style bedrooms, a large, self-catering kitchen and a communal lounge area accommodate up to 24 guests, while outside, there’s space on site for as many as 16 campers. The building is wheelchair-accessible and offers plenty of space for parking, offering a range of nearby activities including cycling, hiking and rock-climbing. Nearby attractions include Corfe Castle, Dorset Water Park, Durlston Country Park and Burngate Stone Carving Centre. For a family get-together, hen or stag do, school trip or other sizeable group, the Centre represents the ideal destination.
History buffs will find themselves in their element; the Centre was built during WWII and is now all that remains of the radar development site that once stood at Worth Matravers. Over the years, the surrounding buildings have gradually been removed, and all that’s left now are breath-taking views. For as little as £350 per night, you’ll enjoy all this, plus a range of facilities including a cosy log burner, BBQ, table-tennis table and basketball court.
The Centre offers exceptional value for money, so don’t hesitate to get in touch and secure your booking today.
Like all of us, and in fact, more than most, young carers need to be able to take time for themselves now and again.
But in the midst of their caring responsibilities, this is time that young carers often struggle to find. MYTIME works to carve out that precious time for young carers.
At their R&R Retreat Centre on the Purbecks, MYTIME hosts activity days and residential retreats for young carers of ages 5-25, helping to reduce feelings of stress, to tackle feelings of isolation and to support young carers’ development into happy, healthy adults.
The centre represents a safe space for young carers – a rare place that they can call their own. But that’s not all. When it’s not in use for charitable purposes, the centre is rented out by members of the public, and in this way, it generates valued income that helps to sustain MYTIME and is used to further support more young carers. As a charity, MYTIME relies on the centre in more ways than one.
But there’s a problem.
The building, constructed in WWII as part of a radar development site, is now deteriorating quickly.
The MYTIME team have ambitious and exciting plans for the complete renovation of the centre, and are raising funds towards this project now.
If we can raise the funds that MYTIME needs to restore this much-loved building, then we can create for MYTIME a sustainable income source, and guarantee a future for the charity.
We can preserve a place that means everything, not only to the young carers of today, but to the young carers of tomorrow.
We can leave a tangible legacy, and one that will make a real difference where it matters most for generations to come.
