Our Story

Barny Lee Marquees have been creating magical event spaces for thousands of happy customers since 2003.

A Family Business

We are proud that our family run business, based deep in the heart of Somerset, has grown organically through word of mouth.
Caring for our clients and always going the extra mile has been at the core of our business from day one.

Reputation Is Everything

Thanks to a strong reputation and some really wonderful clients over the years, our business now extends to cover all of Southern England, Wales, the South West and London.

Somerset Roots

Managing Director and owner Barny Lee has lived in Wedmore, Somerset all his life. His brother Toby has a cider making business down the road.
You could say that the family are as firmly rooted in Somerset as the ancient apple orchards or Cheddar cheese.

Barny and our team of experienced marquee installers and event coordinators will help every step of the way and ensure your celebration runs like a dream.

The Glamping Business

Living within earshot of Glastonbury festival, for many years Barny searched for the perfect site in Pilton to create a boutique glamping experience. In 2017 The Glastonbury Retreat was launched, now a huge success, it sells out every year.

The Badminton Story

2019 saw the glamping business expanding. Alongside setting up camp again for Glastonbury, Barny with his wife Emily secured a contract with Badminton Horse trials. The Badminton Retreat is the official onsite luxury glamping provider for this prestigious event.

Glamping for Weddings & Events

We now also offer pop up glamping accommodation for marquee clients looking to provide luxury camping on site for their guests.

Our Team

We employ fully trained professional and polite staff. We are flexible to fit in with your needs and requirements and work exceedingly hard.
If difficulties arise, we deal with them swiftly to ensure your occasion is memorable for all the right reasons!
