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.

Accommodation is in one of several lovely local cottages sleeping 3 or 4 with double, twin and single bedrooms. Full details will be sent after your booking application. The cost for 3 nights is £180 per person.

Travel: Nearest airport is Manchester. Buses to Bakewell from Manchester, Sheffield or Derby. Further travel and connection details will be sent to confirmed bookings.

Booking: Please complete the Booking Application Form below. Enquiries:

Payment: once your place has been confirmed payment will be in full to John’s PayPal –

Cancellation: Charges if you need to cancel and we need to try and find a replacement guest: Two weeks or less from the date of arrival – 100%. Prior to two weeks from the date of arrival – 50%. If we need to cancel you will receive a full refund.

Donations: The cost of the retreat is based on seasonal accommodation rates – there is no separate charge for meditating or just being with John. You may choose, however, to make a cheerful donation.
