Holidays Overview

There’s something for everyone at the Torch Holiday and Retreat Centre – the haven for people with sight loss! Whichever holiday you choose there are always plenty of trips out to places of interest, and excellent Christian content. Whatever the weather, warm friendship, fun, comfortable accommodation and good food are guaranteed! You’ll be blessed physically and spiritually on a Torch Holiday.

The holidays we run are provided with support from our charitable funds for people with sight loss, however we are very happy to welcome family, friends and companions to come along as well, at the same price listed in the programme. All of our holidays are listed on this page, but if you would like to download a copy of the list containing further information about each holiday, you can do so on our downloads page here.

Fully inclusive

Don’t forget – our holiday prices are fully inclusive! That means inclusive of all meals, outings, entrance fees, event tickets and transport during the holiday. A 10% discount applies to the holiday price for shared room occupancy.

Enjoying your Holiday - Mobility Grading

To help you to choose the right holiday and get the best experience of what we can offer you to fully participate in, we provide a simple mobility grading scheme for all our holidays. The grading is explained below at the end of the page, with grade 0 requiring low mobility up to grade 3 requiring high mobility.

For information about additional breaks for Torch Fellowship Groups, please call us.
