50 for Free

Free short breaks in extraordinary places for charities

What is 50 for Free?

50 for Free offers fifty stays at Landmark properties for charities and non-profit organisations. 

This year's chosen beneficiaries include hospices, full-time carers, food bank volunteers and veterans; charities who support people with rare health conditions, gambling addiction and disability; and organisations who provide services to those who have experienced domestic abuse, loneliness and poor mental health. 

Each year, applicants select from 25 Landmarks across England, Wales, Scotland and even a trip by helicopter to stay on the island of Lundy. Some select their local Landmark whilst others opt for an exciting adventure further afield, enabling beneficiaries to take a short break that suits their needs. The stays offered as part of the 2024 scheme will take place in March 2024. 

Since 50 for Free launched ten years ago, Landmark has given over 3,386 people in need of a holiday, a moment of respite, valuable time with loved ones, or a break from everyday life in extraordinary places.

A writer's paradise

One 50 for Free story

In the realm of writing, inspiration can spring from unexpected places and life's challenging moments. For writer Cath Holland whose husband died of bowel cancer in 2019, grief was such an assault on her both physically and emotionally that her own creativity and imagination was stunted. Her personal story was too painful to write about. It was on a 50 For Free stay at The White House in Shropshire that Cath found the space and solace to write a new short story.
