"Just a very quick note to thank you all so much for all your help over the weekend. It was our 11th Men's Weekend at The Jonas Centre and I think one of the best. I am so impressed by what you are all doing there and by your hospitable spirit. There are too many conference centres around the country without the proper gift of hospitality you have it in abundance. You have a 'can do'; attitude to what we want to be able to do with the men which makes all the difference to us. So thanks."

"Many, many thanks once again for a wonderful stay. The weekend was beyond all our expectations and everyone really had a great time. Your welcome was excellent and right from the first enquiry, you give a sense of wanting people to enjoy their stay and making it a memorable, positive experience. You trusted our party and made us feel very welcome. You were a great support over the weekend but were also happy for us to get on with things."

""You obviously cater for groups and this was so clear right from our arrival which made me feel very at ease. It's so helpful as a group co-ordinator to have staff who know the practicalities of handling large groups and we felt very well supported and cared for throughout our stay. The space is also fantastic and the freedom to use all the indoor spaces as well as outdoors made for a great weekend so thank you!""

"We have now been visiting The Jonas Centre since 2002 with our annual children's and youth residential. We have kept coming back because it's a very special place. The setting is so beautiful and peaceful (until we arrive!) The kids love the freedom of the centre and we are happy with the safety of the setting.We have so many memories of God at work during our visit to the centre, We have brought more than 200 children over the years they have come from very varied backgrounds, some had never left Leeds, or seen sheep, goats or rabbits. For some of the children this has been their first stay away from home and have flourished in this safe environment.The team have always made us feel welcome, there is a family atmosphere here. "

"The Jonas Centre provides an inspiring base for a residential stay with a class of any age. Set in beautiful countryside, there are opportunities for designing a wealth of adventurous activities in a safe and peaceful environment. Comfortable cabins, friendly and accommodating staff and excellent kitchen and common room facilities make this an easy and unforgettable experience, for teachers and children alike. Well worth a visit!"

"Just a quick note to say thank you so much for hosting and putting us up as the English Leadership Team of YWAM England a few weeks ago. We loved our time there and for many of the leaders it was so refreshing to get away from their ministry contexts. You are very kind and we appreciate all that you do at the Jonas Centre."

"The staff were fantastic, particularly Simon's introductory speech. The main centre facilities and grounds were perfect, particularly the views! I don't think there was much that could be changed, everything was delivered to above and beyond our expectations."

"Very rarely do you find such a place as this hidden gem at The Jonas Centre. We would highly recommend, if you need some time out, peace and some quiet, or just to be still, then we recommend The Jonas Centre."
