Following a 23 year relationship we decided to marry. We saw Folly Farm on the net and decided it could be the venue for us, made a call and described our requests, within an hour I received a reply with costings. All good. We visited Folly and this confirmed we had made the correct choice, the staff (Stella) were extremely... More

I've been to Folly Farm three years now, staying for long weekends with author mates on a retreat. The place is under new management and whereas it was brilliant before now it's even more so. The rooms, spread out over a rural area are all clean, cosy and many have fantastic views of the surrounding coutryside. The meals are delicous,... More

The location is fabulous, and the Sat-nav managed to direct me almost to the door. The accommodation is set up for courses more than for luxury holidays - and I was there on a course. I was in a four-bed room (on my own) which was newly decorated, clean, with two comfy chairs and also offered a kettle with tea/coffee.... More

I stayed at Folly Farm Centre for my friends wedding celebrations and found it to be a beautiful and rustic setting. There were plenty of rooms to accommodate the vast majority of the wedding party and many others camped over too. Whilst the rooms were basic they were clean and tidy and very nice and warm, The farmhouse where we... More

We went to a wedding here a few weeks ago and it was amazing! If you're after a rural setting, an eco venue, where you can spend lots of quality time with friends and family then this venue is perfect! We arrived on Friday night and stayed until Sunday in one of the self-catering cottages. The cottages seemed to be... More

The location of Folly Farm is fantastic, with amazing views. Sadly the accommodation didn't match up as it was basic to say the least. The bed was comfortable but the bathroom was run down & impractical. The ancient TV didn't work which wouldn't have been a problem if it wasnt pouring with rain. We came home a day early.

The wedding party took over the whole place and it was fantastic! Simple but perfectly comfortable beds, rooms were tidy and sensibly furnished, with essentials such as kettle, toaster etc for self-catering. We also had use of the main kitchen which whilst having clear instructions for things like lighting the gas, is an industrial kitchen, so if you wanted to... More

My husband and I got married just over a year ago at Folly Farm. We went back recently on our 1-year anniversary to visit, which prompted me to write a short review of the farm. When searching for the perfect venue, we had quite a few criteria to meet, but mainly the below: - Comfortable accommodation for our family and... More

We have used Folly Farm twice for business meetings. First time was as a daytime meeting venue, the second time we added an overnight stay before the next days daytime meeting. Its a perfect spot, a relaxing converted farm with views to Chew Valley Lake, woody walks around the estate, with excellent accommodation for meetings and studio bedrooms. We went... More

I hosted a team training workshop for 25 people here for a week earlier this year. It really was absolutely perfect for what we were looking for. Lots of space inside and out, great food, clean and comfortable rooms and staff who were exceptionally helpful and professional whilst still maintaining a very friendly atmosphere. It was half the price of... More
