Please read the following information prior to applying for a week at Middle Eggbeer.


Bookings for 2019 will open in 2018.  

Any applications for 2019 posted before 1st January 2018 will be disregarded. 

January is our busiest time of year: please only apply during this month if you need school holidays.

The property, Middle Eggbeer, was conveyed in trust “for the free holidays for ministers of religion and missionaries and their families of any colour and of any Christian creed or denomination”.*

The essence of the site is its peace and quiet; which is conducive to the restoration and recreation of the visitors to the Lodges.  We ask our guests to have due regard to this.

We would ask applicants to respect the fact that we are a charity and we strive to help those applicants who, for whatever reason, do not have the luxury of taking a wide variety of regular holidays.

In order to provide holidays for as many guests as possible, the Trustees discourage return to Middle Eggbeer on consecutive years.  If you came on holiday with us last year, please allow someone else to use the Lodges this year.  We also try to reserve school holidays and half terms for those with children.

It is the responsibility of each applicant to provide a truthful account of his or her eligibility for receiving this week’s free holiday at Middle Eggbeer.  

Even if you have holidayed with us in the past we would ask you to complete this application form again, as circumstances can change over time.  Retired clergy and missionaries are, of course, eligible to apply.  We would ask, however, that verifiable information about previous responsibilities be provided on the application form.

Without this written account the application will not be processed.

Data Protection

All data received will be used for the verification of entitlement for a week’s free holiday at Middle Eggbeer and also as a record of those who have benefitted from the Eggbeer Trust.  Data will not be shared with any other organisations or transmitted to any other person or establishment.  Only basic data giving name, address, email and telephone numbers will be stored on a single computer by our Booking’s Secretary.

We can only receive this application from you in printed form – not electronically  –  to conform to our data protection responsibilities.
