Jamyang has four unique bed & breakfast guest rooms - they are the old Police Holding Cells! 

Get a real feel for our beautiful Victorian Courthouse building, staying overnight in these rooms. They are small, but cosy. Comfortable beds, heated, reading lights and places to put your belongings. In fact, only 4 (four) cells are available for guests so please book well in advance!

Conduct at Jamyang
As a Buddhist Centre, we expect you to abide by the Five Buddhist Precepts:

1. No killing and not to eat meat or fish in our facilities
2. No stealing
3. No lying
4. No sexual activity
5. No alcohol or drugs, or to be under the influence of them while at Jamyang.

At the same time, please consider the building is a no-smoking area. One of the cell block's functions is to provide retreat space, so we need you to be as quiet and considerate as possible, and in particular not to listen to music except through headphones and in private.

The Cells
The cells are small (approximately 7.5 ft by 5 ft) and private.

The current price of a single cell is £35/night for visitors, £30/night for those attending Jamyang courses/retreats, or £25/night if you are Friend of Jamyang, including:
  • Self service kitchen on same floor as guest rooms. You can help yourself to the breakfast we supply in the kitchen (daily organic bread baked in Kennington, whole milk, soya milk, rice milk, cereals, teas, coffees, etc.)., and there is a stove for cooking your evening meal should you wish.
  • Bedding and towel.
  • Shared bathroom and WC.
  • Free access to use the Shrine Room and Library according to availability.
  • We don’t offer a laundry facility, but there is a launderette nearby, and a phone box just outside the centre.
