Single Parent Special Packages 2018/2019

Book yourself in for a fun few days where families with children are welcome and well looked after in our gorgeous luxury yurts, cabins, stable or bunkhouse.

Events listed as Single Parent Takeovers are for single parents only. Occasionally, we make an exception for a partner or amicable co-parent. Other events are open to families of all kinds but often have several units booked by single parents and children. Single parents traveling alone with their children get money off the cost of the booking.

What Makes Barnutopia Special?

Apart from the fact that you are very well looked after, with delicious food served morning and evening, parents and children love our farmyard, animals and relaxed approach. Children run free and enjoy themselves without an electronic device in sight. Although, there is free Wi-Fi when you want it. We’re had more than a few tears on departure day and and even had children tell their mums and dads that they want to stay forever. See family glamping image gallery.

Booking Details for Single Parent Break & Family Glamping

We schedule regular breaks including part board (breakfasts & suppers), activities and games. We’ll make sure you have a great breakfast and a good supper, and you’ll have access to the camp kitchens to store and prepare lunches and snacks. We are happy to provide squash, tea, coffee, milk, and sugar in the camp kitchen.  If you are interested in arranging a group-stay on different dates, please get in touch.

Single Parent Pricing

You DO NOT have to share a unit. Parents are welcome to book a unit to themselves and their children. That said, it will work out cheaper per head if you find someone to share with. Often, the whole site is turned over to single parents during these breaks. However, units may be booked by families of any kind. The longer breaks have more scheduled activities, of course.  Single parents get money off all packages as there is only one adult attending.

Single Parent Glamping Prices On Standard Packages

Prices vary depending on family size and unit chosen. Please send an enquiry or go through the online booking process. You will need to click all the way through to see any discount and the single parent credit (with no obligation to book).

Typical Schedule

This is a typical schedule for a 4-night midweek event and you can expect a similar timetable for future packages. We are flexible and can modify as needed. For example, younger children need different activities to older children. Activities are optional and we think of variations so that guests who have been before having something new to look forward to. Usually, we have arts and crafts materials and outdoor games available at all times taking into account the ages of children. We have to monitor and control the arts and crafts materials or they get trashed by younger kids.
