About us

After Umbrage In the UK, 3 in every 5 people will become carers at some point in their lives. After Umbrage provides care for those who care. Founded in 2013, we offer free, short breaks for anyone who has been caring for or recently lost someone with a life-limiting condition. We give carers a chance to take time out to relax and unwind in the idyllic surroundings of Kingham Cottage, near Bath, so that they can return to their caring duties rejuvenated.

About the cottage Kingham Cottage is a beautiful retreat set just outside the city of Bath, overlooking views of the Midford Valley in Somerset. Exposed beams, a secluded patio, an inglenook fireplace and a roll top bath create a luxurious home for up to four people. You can find peace and tranquility alongside the amenities and historical sights of Bath only five minutes away.

How to apply After Umbrage is pleased to offer the accommodation free of charge for up to four nights for anyone who has been looking after loved ones with a life limiting condition. Each applicant is allowed up to three stays, including time for those recently bereaved. We hosted 45 families in 2019 and we’d love every carer to know about us. To book your free break, there is a short referral form that you can download from every page of our website, from which you can also sign up to our enewsletter and join us on social media.
