What we offer on a school trip
Barnutopia is a glamping, camping and event venue located in the stunning Shropshire countryside right on the border with Powys, Wales. Owners Katrina and Steve Boydon have worked steadily to create a comfortable and well-equipped site that’s perfect for groups. At just over half a mile from the village of Llansilin, Powys, Barnutopia is in a quiet rural location with excellent access to Oswestry. Oswestry is 5 miles away and well served by public transport (bus station in town and train station 3 miles away) and has a range of large supermarkets (Sainsburys, Aldi, Morrisons, Lidl) and boutique shops.
The glamping village at Barnutopia comprises: 8 glamping units (all fully furnished with beds made up, power, lighting, heating and free password-protected Wi-Fi) Cookhouse lounge (fully equipped kitchen, dining and seating area) Kitchen Shack (second, smaller well-equipped kitchen) Activity barn (155 sq m approx.) with power and lighting Dutch barn (indoor/outdoor space safe for campfires) Bathroom block with 5 toilets (2 wheelchair accessible), 2 urinals and 3 showers ( 1 wheelchair accessible) Yurt field with central area for outdoor games Just across the lane is a campsite for 20 or so small tents or 5-6 large (6+ man tents). We can also hire additional bell tents if required.
When not in use as a campsite, this is a useful larger area for outdoor activities. The main glamping site is completely fenced and the yards gates can be shut. There are many monuments and sites of historic interest within easy driving distance of Barnutopia. Oswestry is one of the oldest market towns in Britain and has a unique position on the Welsh border with gives rise to Welsh and English inflences. Owners Katrina and Steve Boydon have four children and many years’ experience organizing activity camps for corporate groups, youth groups and, since opening Barnutopia, family glamping packages with breakfasts, suppers, activities and an excursion. The format lends itself perfectly to school trips.
