Reece's Retreat

What is Reece's Retreat?

Reece’s Retreat is a cosy three bedroom holiday home located at Haven Lakeland Holiday Park. It is exclusively owned for the use of families who have been or are currently impacted by childhood cancer and brain tumours.

This holiday home was once just a dream to Reece, but thanks to his hard work and dedication to Team Reece he was able to make this dream a reality when the first holiday home was purchased. 

Reece's Retreat

In May 2016, Reece David Holt received a diagnosis that would change his and his family’s life forever. During his battle with childhood cancer, Reece decided to put everything he could into fighting for others suffering in this way. He had many dreams and aspirations for his charity, Team Reece. Amongst these was the dream to one day purchase a holiday home to offer respite for those who need it most.

This dream came true for Reece and a three bedroom which can sleep up to eight people was purchased. Fully furnished, plus with central heating and double glazing it doesn’t matter what the Great British Summer brings, you’re always going to be cosy and warm. Lakeland Leisure Park is situated near the picturesque Lake District in Cumbria, one of the country’s most quintessential holiday getaway locations. 

Unfortunately at this time we do not allow pets or smoking/vaping at Reece’s Retreat.
