I spent a couple of days at Barnutopia, but could happily of stayed for much longer. The surroundings fill you with deep sense of contentment. It is soo peaceful. The yurts and cabins are private but at the same time you can’t help feel a part of a wonderful community with other visitors, it is soo welcoming. Thankyou for sharing your beautiful home and it’s surroundings. More...

The setting and surrounding views are stunning and the site is equipped with everything you might possibly need for any type of event or stay, but the real beauty is in the warm welcome and hospitality Katrina and Steve offer.We had our wedding weekend here from the 25th-28th July 2019 and they were definitely a key reason that we chose to have our wedding here. From the very first email with Katrina, after feeling like every other wedding venue was taking us for a ride, or adding on costs because of the nature of the event - Barnutopia was a breath of fresh air! Our friends and family had so much fun and said it was the best wedding ever, so thanks so much guys - we will definitely be back to stay. More...

My husband Paul and I chose Barnutopia as our wedding venue, taking place last weekend. We cannot praise this venue enough. Katrina, Steve and their family are so warm and friendly, and willing to go above and beyond to make their guests’ stay special. Our wedding day was exactly as we imagined it would be, which was largely due to their advice help and support over 18 months. The location is beautiful and accommodation is fantastic for a glamping weekend. We can’t wait to visit Barnutopia again in the future and would highly recommend this venue for weddings and other large events as well as family holidays. Thank you ⭐️ More...

We recently held our festival themed wedding at Barnutopia. We were looking for a unique venue and were especially keen on the ability to have our wedding ceremony outdoors and the yurt/campsite which allowed our guests to stay onsite. From our first visit to Barnutopia we knew it was where we wanted to have our wedding. The views of rolling green hills from the farm are spectacular and when the sun comes out there is nowhere quite like Barnutopia. We also liked the freedom to bring in our own touches to everything, including decorations, caterers and alcohol. Our guests all loved the location, especially my younger relatives who enjoyed seeing all the farmyard animals onsite. Given that they’ve only been doing weddings for a couple of years, Barnutopia have everything you could want from a venue – decorations, lights, games and an assortment of miscellaneous props! Katrina and Steve went above and beyond what we would expect from venue owners. They fetched ice from the supermarket when we ran out, lit fires in the evening, helped us set up the venue before our big day and also cleared up the morning after the party. Katrina was very professional in responding to our emails/and those from our suppliers and we would recommend Barnutopia to anyone looking for a unique location for their wedding. More...

Literally just got home from an exhausting but fantastic 40th birthday weekend.
Organised by myself, the whole process (which started nearly a year ago) was dealt with by the very patient and accommodating Mrs B.
I booked the whole site for my family and friends. We had all the yurts, cabin and stables also some extra tent campers.
We made full use of the Party barn and facilities, including Pizzas, cooked breakfasts and pancakes and we had a huge BBQ on the Sunday where no one went hungry �
The scavenger hunt was great fun and suitable for all ages, our youngest was 3 and she loved running around the countryside collecting the 'blue diamonds'
We also took full advantage of the glorious weather that Mrs B obviously booked for us too �. A couple of showers but otherwise brilliant.
What more can I say. I can't recommend this place enough.

Good luck with all your future plans Mrs B xxx

We had a fabulous week in July 2017 taking over two yurts, the cabin and stable. The kids played football, paddled in the river, ran about non stop for hours, painted pictures and played in the party barn. We roasted marshmallows in the fire pits, had game of rounders with everyone and even had an outdoor cinema! The food provided was delicious and Katrina’s and Steve’s hospitality is 2nd to none. I’m desperate to go back and if the weather could be guaranteed, I’d spend the whole of our summer holidays there. More...

Have visited twice now and will always be back! The family that own this are absolutely the best!! The nicest and most welcoming people you could ever wish for! Very knowledgable of the area and things/places to do/go.
After the first day here my kids were asking when we were coming again!! We have stayed in Stable Stephanie and the lodge cabin. Yurts book up quick but we are aiming to get one next time!!
Accommodation is comfy, cozy and clean. Heaters are provided.
I highly recommend booking the breakfast as it is out of this world! Plenty of amazingly good cooked food by Katrina. (Steve needs roller skates for this, bless him!!) Pancake challenge is a big hit with us!
We look forward to our next visit when bump arrives and can't wait to see all the new things you've done.
If there were 100 stars for this review that's what I'd rate it! xx

We went for a wedding last month, and were blown away by how stunning Barnutopia is.

Katrina was really patient and helpful, answering loads of questions over email before we went. I'm super allergic to life, so she even pestered her laundry to find out what sort of washing powder they used, and washed bedding separately for me, so that I didn't have to bring my own!

She and Steve and their family all worked really hard to make the wedding day and the rest of the weekend special for all of us.

We stayed in Yurt Axana, which is the big one at the top of the hill. There was loads of space, lovely furniture, and our alarm clock was the sound of the lambs outside.

The only small issue was the heat inside the yurt during the day (there was a heatwave on, so it was to be expected), but I know Katrina has got plans to address this soon.

We're planning to take some friends and their families next year.

Go, you won't be disappointed!

We stayed as part of my good friend Nicola's 40th Birthday party, which the whole site had been booked including the barn. Can I say as a seasoned camper how lovely it was to Glamp for a change (we did pitch a our tent this time) and to use all the facilities that were offered with it. It was a great weekend with activities organised, Scavenger hunt, BBQ etc by Barnutopia on top of the party itself. The kids in our group loved it as did the dogs and the next time we come to stay ( yes we will be back) I'm definitely trying the Yurts out. Mrs B and Family, thank you for all that you did and I hope your sites continues to grow with success. Look forward to seeing the new additions (Abb �) when we return. More...

My sister booked and arranged my hen party at barnutopia and it was a dream from start to finish. The yurts were fantastic and so comfortable and it was really lovely to wake up.to the sound of the lambs in the next field. The scavenger hunt was so much fun, I belly laughed the whole way round and even the staff at local pub were lovely (and fellow brummies apparently!). The party barn is fab and whilst we made a lot of noise there were never any complaints (we did check!)
Thank you once again for such a fantastic time. I'll be coming back for sure!

Have just got back from an amazing hen weekend at Barnutopia. We booked the whole site and made full advantage of the catering options! Pizza on the first night, breakfast both days (we all agreed, the best pancakes we have ever eaten), afternoon tea (which was beautifully laid out) and an evening meal. All the food was fantastic and no one was left hungry. Extremely good value for money. We also went on the scavenger hunt which conveniently went past the local pub and then made use of the party barn with its sound system and disco ball in the evening! An amazing weekend with every little detail catered for by Katrina and Steve. We can't thank you enough! Would definitely recommend. More...

What a fantastic place to stay, it has everything you need for comfort and we were all made to feel at home from the moment we arrived. The food was spot on, and plentiful! Massive shout out to Bethan who was absolutely brilliant with the kids. There were tears in the car on the way home because we might not see her again for ages and ages and ages!

Katrina was incredibly accommodating and helpful with all the planning prior to our weekend; it could not have been simpler. On the weekend itself, we were greeted by Katrina and Steve who were both lovely and very welcoming. They showed us around the site and made sure we had everything we needed. They were also very relaxed with our pups, shutting the gate for them and letting them have free reign. They had a great time playing with Katrina and Steve's dogs (both lovely) most of the evening too!Everyone was really pleased with the accommodation - all of which were cosy, comfortable and surprisingly warm. The views and surroundings were just beautiful - rolling Welsh hills! The party barn, though rustic, was perfect for our needs. Bar with fridge right next to the TV so all the rugby fans were happy (key Six Nations match that could not be missed!), squashy sofas, several tables, lots of chairs, heaters and a dance floor with a great little hi-fi system. There were also 2 fire pits which were great as it got chillier in the evening.The absolute best part of the weekend, however, had to be the breakfast!! We left as 18 very happy, well fed people :) The servings of bacon, sausage, beans, scrambled eggs, toast, tea, coffee and juice seemed to be endless and Steve was very attentive, checking regularly if anyone needed more of anything. The pancakes were a true highlight - absolutely delicious and thoroughly recommended!I have no reservations recommending Barnutopia and we would definitely go back. Having chatted a lot with Katrina and Steve, they have so many great plans for the place too, so I'm sure it will only get better. We wish them the best of luck with it all! More...

We opened in June 2015 and had a fantastic first season. We could have filled our yurts three times over in August and this helped us decide to stay open in autumn and year round. All our yurts are fully furnished with real beds, power, lighting, heating and free Wi-Fi. Shared guest facilities include a well-equipped kitchen, breakfast room, lounge and bathroom with power shower. Beds are made up. The response from guests has been AMAZING. All 5-star reviews on Facebook, TripAdvisor, Airbnb and Pitchup. In particular, they love the location that is rural yet accessible, our animals and the fact that we interact with our guests. We love what we do. We have not yet had a single guest who we would not welcome back. It seems yurt glamping attracts lovely people. More...

What a breathtaking yurt experience!I had the opportunity to stay in Nanny Iris. It was a special and unique experience. Besides from the yurt's beautiful structure, interior and design the hospitality and welcome from Katrina and Steve was the highlight of my stay. I met the wonderful pigs Felix and Fiona, lovely kitties and woke up to an abundance of quiet sheep. The sights and scenery are absolutely breathtaking. Another plus you do not need to bring any camping equipment or towels you are provided with pretty much everything to have a comfortable and relaxing stay. There are also opportunities to ask Katrina about all the wonderful things to do in Oswestry and the surrounding areas. If you are seeking an effortless holiday, Barnutopia is definitely the place to stay. More...
