Supported holidays for adults with learning disabilities and/or autism spectrum conditions

Originally a working farm, Nutley Edge is now a tranquil rural holiday complex nestled against the historic Ashdown Forest, East Sussex.

In 2012, Outward invested in Nutley Edge Cottages to offer people with learning disabilities and/or autism spectrum conditions supported holidays.

When you join us on one of our supported holidays for adults with learning disabilities and/or autism, you’ll have five days to explore our 11-acre grounds, get to know your fellow guests, or take part in varied activities led by local experts. We also visit some of South East England’s best attractions.

Every supported holiday has a different theme, so you can choose a break with activities you love or discover something new. All of them are full of homemade delicious food, music and disco nights and a chance to make new friends. Our themes include…

  • Reboot and Recharge
  • Winter warmer
  • Food Lovers
  • Spring
  • Art and Crafts
  • Sight Seeing
  • History and Mystery
  • Sport and Outdoor Pursuits
  • Fun and Games
  • Mad about Animals
  • Summer holidays
  • Pampering
  • Bonfire and Halloween
  • Christmas Activity Breaks


You will receive full details of your holiday activities before your break.

As a charity, our aim is to keep our supported holidays financially accessible, so we do what we can to keep prices low and quality high. Starting at only £1215, our pricing includes one to four staffing ratio, sleep-in cover, food, activity costs, accommodation with your own bedroom and more.

Before you join us, we complete a personalised assessment to ensure we know important things about you, how you wish to receive your support and then you can relax and enjoy your holiday. It will give you a chance to meet us and give your families peace of mind that you will be well supported. Additional support can be arranged if required at an extra cost.

Everything is taken care of from when you arrive at our pick-up point in East London or near Nutley Edge to when you return home. Just bring your spending money. Adventure and relaxation await!



Already a devoted Nutley Edge fan? When you introduce a friend who books a break with us who has never been on one of our supported holidays before, you get £50 off your next break! Just ask them to state who referred them on our booking enquiry form.
