RAFA Welfare Facilities

RAFA Armourers Branch forms part of the UK-wide network of branches that support the Royal Air Forces Association (RAFA) welfare initiatives. RAFA’s overall objective is to promote, through the comradeship engendered by its members, the welfare by charitable means of all serving and former members of Her Majesty’s Air Forces, their spouses and dependants, together with the widows and widowers and dependants of those who died whilst serving or subsequently.

Wings Breaks for the RAF family

Situated across the country in some of England’s most picturesque locations, the RAF Association’s Wings Breaks hotels offer a true home from home and a warm welcome for those who are looking for a relaxing break away.

Whether it’s an idyllic break by the sea or the chance to stay in the stunning Northumbrian countryside, each of our hotels has something special to offer.

Our Wings Breaks hotels offer short stays and breaks. The fully trained and friendly staff are able to provide care and support for those who need that little extra assistance, with facilities available to cater for a wide variety of needs.

Our Wings Breaks hotels provide a warm and friendly environment with plenty of opportunities to meet like-minded people. Many of our guests return time and again to enjoy a break within the comfort of the RAF family.

RAFA has three hotels available for short welfare breaks:
