It is a great delight and surprise to John that his videos on YouTube have received such a warm welcome. People from many places are asking “How can I meet John?” So we thought we would create an opportunity for guests to join John in silent meditation in All Saints Parish Church, Bakewell and provide very comfortable accommodation in the lovely country town of Bakewell where guests can enjoy further chat with John after breakfast.

 

We offer two types of accommodation for 3 nights - bed and breakfast and self-catering cottage.

 

The B&B is One Castle Street hosted by Janette Hockley-Webster who has known John and his family for many years - she lives in the house opposite the one where John grew up - and she is sympathetic to John’s work. She has several of John’s father’s paintings in the house and she has kindly offered to share with us her breakfast room with a view of the garden for the after breakfast chat so we feel even more at home.

 

Cost including bed and breakfast for 3 nights:

 

 

 

 

The self-catering option is in one of several lovely local cottages sleeping 3 or 4. Full details will be sent after your booking application. The cost for 3 nights is £165-£180.
