"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."

""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!""

""What a beautiful special place The Jonas Centre is, we all absolutely loved it and there was nothing we could fault. Simon and the team at The Jonas Centre were excellent from booking to the weekend and couldn't have been more helpful and supportive. The lodges were great and so loved by the children!""

""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.""

"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. "
