The Jonas Centre
July 1st 2019
The Jonas Centre proves to be an ideal location for schools and groups alike, below is a review from a teacher.
“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. We took a mixed Y3/4 class for a three day visit, which included sports, hiking and map-reading, orienteering, campfires and cooking! We had great fun planning our activities and our menus as a class and greatly enjoyed the freedom and flexibility to design our own outdoor curriculum to suit our own needs. Well worth a visit!”

Aysgarth Falls are the triple-flight waterfalls of High Force, Middle Force and Lower Force on the River Ure.
December 5th 2018
Used in the filming of “Robin Hood Prince of Thieves” the Aysgarth Falls are only 2 miles from woodland cabin accommodation at the Jonas Centre
The Aysgarth Falls stretch over a one-mile length of the River Ure. The falls have grabbed the attention of many cultural icons for more than 200 years, including Wordsworth and Turner, so it is no surprise that they also star in a Hollywood film. Ifootpath provide a walking route for a 2.5 mile circular walk from the village of Aysgarth in Wensleydale. The walk takes in a woodland nature reserve and rolling farmland, with lovely views of Bolton Castle as well as the most spectacular Aysgarth Falls.
The Jonas Centre has warm and cosy self catering cabins available for stays of two nights or more. Each cabin sleeps 5 comfortably in 2 bedrooms and is fully equipped for self catering. Dogs Welcome.
