Something to look forward to in 2020

It’s hard to imagine there’s anything to look forward to in 2020. I’m writing this during the government March/April lockdown period designed to minimise the spread of COVID-19. When the lockdown is lifted or modified, it may be nice to have a countryside holiday or gathering in your future.

Something to Look Forward to in 2020

As of 10 April 2020 new reservations at Barnutopia in 2020 may be secured for 10% of the booking value with the balance payable 2 weeks before arrival. If the reservation cannot go ahead because of government restrictions, the booking fee is fully refundable or the value can be held on account and applied to a future booking up to the end of April 2021. Hopefully, this gives guests something to look forward to in 2020 without worrying what happens if their booking cannot go ahead. Send an enquiry or contact Mrs B at or 01691 791 624.

Octayurts to look forward to in 2020

1. Barnutopia’s New Octayurts

Installed in February 2020, our new octayurts replaced 3 of our canvas yurts (we kept the fourth, yurt Axana). They retain the character of Mongolian yurts but they are more secure, weather-proof and easier to keep clean and fresh.

Toasting marshmallows around the campfire at Barnutopia

3. Campfires and Toasted Marshmallows

No stay at Barnutopia is complete without a campfire. We try to keep marshmallows on hand at all times, but in case we run out you might like to bring a bag of your own. Some may think this is the best thing to look forward to in 2020.
