About Barnutopia

Barnutopia, Tanycoed Farm, Llansilin, Oswestry, Shropshire SY10 9BS

We are in Shropshire, England half a mile from the village of Llansilin, Powys, Wales. Our lane is signposted Cadogan Lane on the Shropshire end and Ffordd Cadwgan on the Welsh end). It is also known and signposted as School Lane on the Welsh end.

For the shortest route, please find your way to Oswestry town BEFORE getting directions to Barnutopia SY10 9BS from your sat nav or map app. Google maps usually brings you right to the door. Apple maps has us located in Trefonen, which is WRONG. We are trying to get this fixed. Also, if your sat nav or map app directs you down a road unsuitable for vehicles, it is WRONG. We are on a tarmac road all the way to the farm and into the yard. See downloadable directions, below.

The Google map pin is correct but for some reason the address includes Morda. We keep asking Google to change this but note we are NOT in Morda; although, there is a School Lane there. We are near the village of Llansilin, Powys.
