Add Another Mongolian Yurt for the 2018 Season

After a fabulous 2017 summer season during which we hosted our first wedding we are looking to complete several projects over the winter.  These include converting the little barn into a cookhouse (in progress), adding a cabin (in progresss) and adding a fourth yurt (not yet started). Our reduced winter cash-flow will allow us to add the new yurt during March. However, if we raise funds over the next month we can add it in January and make it available for the February half-term glamping package. There's a great selection of rewards, which more than cover your investment. Redemption is subject to availability (we won't turf out someone who's booked already) and, if you're unable to take advantage of it yourself, your reward can be gifted to friends and family. All investors can have their names included on a framed certificate in the yurt and on our website.

About Barnutopia

Barnutopia is a luxury yurt glamping, wedding and event venue located just outside the village of Llansilin, Powys and 5 miles from Oswestry, Shropshire, one of the oldest market towns in England. Barnutopia itself is located on the Shropshire side of the border, which follows the course of the stream at the bottom of the garden. Guests are consistently delighted with glamping at Barnutopia and the site has received over one hundred and sixty 5-star reviews on Facebook and TripAdvisor. A common them is the the comfort and quality of the glamping units, the location and stunning views and the the friendliness and dedication of the hosts, Katrina and Steve.

Tanycoed Farm was empty for an extended period before the Boydons moved there in April 2015. They spent two months installing a kitchen in the main farmhouse, repairing and redecorating many of the rooms, purchasing and assembling the yurts, building the camp kitchen, renovating the stables and tidying up the stable yard and land. The first guests stayed in yurt Bronwyn in June the same year.
