When driving to us, please find your way to Oswestry town before entering our name and post code SY10 9BS into sat nav or Google maps. This is usually enough to bring you right to the door. Please note that we are NOT located down a dirt track. If your sat nav directs you to drive 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.

Google Maps

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

Directions to Barnutopia from Oswestry

Also, as can only happen in Britain, the lane we live on is known as School Lane to all who use it. However, in Powys, Wales (at the east end, in Llansilin Village) it is sign-posted as School Lane AND Ffordd Cadwgan. In Shropshire, England (at the west end ) it is sign-posted Cadogan Lane. To compound the issue, there is a School Lane in Trefonen, which also happens to have a church on it. Sat Nav has taken guests there a few times for some reason. Please just enter the post code into your GPS or find Barnutopia on Google Maps.
