Everything was fantastic, the location is beautiful, accommodation so cosy and the venue itself is incredible. The best thing about Barnutopia however has to be Steve and Katrina. There was nothing that was too much trouble for them. Any worries were quickly managed by them, considering I expected it to be fully DIY and left to our own devices, Katrina and Steve were not only present to help make sure things ran smoothly, they were also fabulous company and great at counselling us through our nerves! Steve even took my toddler to play while I enjoyed breakfast, and they both made sure to keep everyone away while I had a little pre wedding melt down. Can’t wait to return to barnutopia for a break next year and to meet the new donkeys! thanks for everything, Leah and Lucasread moreLeah Marie2019-11-07T14:41:47+0000I completely... recommend this beautiful venue for a wedding!

Katrina, Steve and their family are so warm and friendly, and willing to go above and beyond to make their guests’ stay special. Our wedding day was exactly as we imagined it would be, which was largely due to their advice help and support over 18 months. The location is beautiful and accommodation is fantastic for a glamping weekend. We can’t wait to visit Barnutopia again in the future and would highly recommend this venue for weddings and other large events as well as family holidays. Thank you ⭐️ 💕read moreMike Revill2019-07-05T15:00:25+0000We recently held... our festival themed wedding at Barnutopia. We were looking for a unique venue and were especially keen on the ability to have our wedding ceremony outdoors and the yurt/campsite which allowed our guests to stay onsite. From our first visit to Barnutopia we knew it was where we wanted to have our wedding. The views of rolling green hills from the farm are spectacular and when the sun comes out there is nowhere quite like Barnutopia. We also liked the freedom to bring in our own touches to everything, including decorations, caterers and alcohol. Our guests all loved the location, especially my younger relatives who enjoyed seeing all the farmyard animals onsite. Given that they’ve only been doing weddings for a couple of years, Barnutopia have everything you could want from a venue – decorations, lights, games and an assortment of miscellaneous props! Katrina and Steve went above and beyond what we would expect from venue owners. They fetched ice from the supermarket when we ran out, lit fires in the evening, helped us set up the venue before our big day and also cleared up the morning after the party. Katrina was very professional in responding to our emails/and those from our suppliers and we would recommend Barnutopia to anyone looking for a unique location for their wedding.read moreSteve Boswell2019-06-30T20:19:11+0000What an amazing... hidden getaway. the glamping pods are beautiful, specious and cozy.

I'm super allergic to life, so she even pestered her laundry to find out what sort of washing powder they used, and washed bedding separately for me, so that I didn't have to bring my own!She and Steve and their family all worked really hard to make the wedding day and the rest of the weekend special for all of us. We stayed in Yurt Axana, which is the big one at the top of the hill. There was loads of space, lovely furniture, and our alarm clock was the sound of the lambs outside. The only small issue was the heat inside the yurt during the day (there was a heatwave on, so it was to be expected), but I know Katrina has got plans to address this soon.We're planning to take some friends and their families next year.Go, you won't be disappointed!read morePetra McCauley2018-05-27T15:14:54+0000This place is a... gem.

Katrina was incredibly accommodating and helpful with all the planning prior to our weekend; it could not have been simpler. On the weekend itself, we were greeted by Katrina and Steve who were both lovely and very welcoming. They showed us around the site and made sure we had everything we needed. They were also very relaxed with our pups, shutting the gate for them and letting them have free reign. They had a great time playing with Katrina and Steve's dogs (both lovely) most of the evening too!Everyone was really pleased with the accommodation - all of which were cosy, comfortable and surprisingly warm. The views and surroundings were just beautiful - rolling Welsh hills! The party barn, though rustic, was perfect for our needs. Bar with fridge right next to the TV so all the rugby fans were happy (key Six Nations match that could not be missed!), squashy sofas, several tables, lots of chairs, heaters and a dance floor with a great little hi-fi system. There were also 2 fire pits which were great as it got chillier in the evening.The absolute best part of the weekend, however, had to be the breakfast!! We left as 18 very happy, well fed people 🙂 The servings of bacon, sausage, beans, scrambled eggs, toast, tea, coffee and juice seemed to be endless and Steve was very attentive, checking regularly if anyone needed more of anything. The pancakes were a true highlight - absolutely delicious and thoroughly recommended!I have no reservations recommending Barnutopia and we would definitely go back. Having chatted a lot with Katrina and Steve, they have so many great plans for the place too, so I'm sure it will only get better. We wish them the best of luck with it all!read moreRobin Willens2017-01-30T20:47:46+0000My fiancee and I... had a wonderful weekend glamping in one of the yurts.

Not to mention the incredible breakfast spread with the best pancakes I’ve ever had! Nothing was too much trouble and we felt so well looked after.

We came back having done so many new things together, and having an extended sleepover in the magical yurt was very special, especially as I got my own bed and it was warm even when there was a hard frost overnight.

But holidays like this are about more than just a bed and a view, they are also about the hosts and Katrina and Steve are simply amazing what with their ability to make you feel completely at home straight away and a natural manner that is exactly the opposite of the commercial attitude some business owners have. If you've got young children Barnutopia is aptly named as it is utopia with a barn! The kids have plenty of space to run and go wild, Felix and Fiona the pigs were a big hit with our 18 month old and Ziva the dog was very bouncy and played with our 4 yr old really well. Will definitely be going back again and raving about our experience to our friends and family.read moreJessica Kimpton2016-01-24T21:39:37+0000Outstanding. Thanks...

Thank you Katrina and Steve for making us feel so welcome, and the yummy pancakes! The yurt was so comfortable and gave us the best of all worlds - a proper (cosy warm!) bed but when it rained it still sounded like we were under canvas, bliss. Barnutopia is in such a tranquil, peaceful spot, surrounded by countryside (and lots of sheep!) - a great place to reconnect with nature and get away from it all. And in a truly beautiful, and undiscovered part of the world for us to explore, wish we could have stayed for longer. Highlights were the nearby magical waterfall, Lake Vyrnwy, the steam railway at Bala Lake, Llangollen aqueduct, and all the scenic driving / walking over the mountains in Snowdonia. We will definitely be coming back!!!read moreCayler Elliott2015-07-05T16:38:42+0000Absolutely lovely... weekend, great place to stay, beautiful views and a fantastic friendly host - Katrina and her family are very welcoming.

Located in the countryside with sprawling grassy hills, the views from the farm are spectacular. The yurt itself was very clean and contained everything we needed, including some plug sockets for charging phones etc. The breakfast and evening meals provided are wholesome and tasty, setting us up for our hike of Snowdon! Bathroom with a decent shower is located in the main house along with a room to the use of the internet on a laptop etc as the WiFi doesn't quite stretch to the yurt we were in.Overall, a brilliant stay. Clean, friendly and accommodating, we would certainly recommend!read moreRichard Small2015-06-10T05:12:49+0000Excellent... weekend,amazing views, good homecooked food .Yurt was clean and well furnished with a comfortable bed.

Wow! Came here for 6 … More day break, and I could have stayed here forever. Exceeded my expectations completely. The owners are lovely and play a part in your holiday experience. The animals (cats, donkeys, pigs and horses) are so friendly. We stayed in stable Stephanie, right by the donkeys, and we loved it. There's an undercover barn where you can have a fire or BBQ if it's raining, a room with full kitchen and sofas. Great facilities all round.
If you're up for a farm glamping experience and you love animals, this is definitely the place to go!
