All the profit made from the treat rooms goes directly into Ruddi’s Retreat to support the charity and to save up for the holiday lodge to enable us to provide holidays for more families.

Ruddi’s The Vintage Treat Rooms opened its doors in May 2015 to offer something a bit different. Ali and the team are very excited to be able to provide lovely afternoon teas, specialty coffees, freshly baked scones and cakes as well as beautiful savouries and soups.

In addition to this, there is a traditional sweet counter where people can return to the halcyon days of their childhood and buy a quarter (well 100g, due to EU regulations) of bonbons or select a lovely mix of sweeties to last the afternoon.

is our aim to help families with seriously ill children to have access to a holiday home for free!

We want to help families with young children suffering from the effects and after effects of Cancer Treatment, Life Limiting Illnesses or Bereavement to enjoy a family holiday together with minimal financial cost and maximum fun!

2016 sees the launch of Gwennie’s Getaways. 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.
