"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 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. "

"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."
Lilavati Ishaya, Brightpath
""The verbal introduction to the centre by Simon, he's hilarious, we all loved his sense of humour. The cabins were presentable and clean. The playground is well maintained and simple.""

"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."
Rev Nick Moore, All Saints Stranton
"We've been before, love the setting, facilities are ideal for us, you give us an excellent price and a warm welcome."
