Myself and friends stayed here for a stag event last November; we're a slightly older group and were looking for a venue higher in quality, in beautiful surroundings with plenty going on activity wise nearby, so I gave them a call. Right from the off, organisation and communication from the in house booking team was excellent. We left a deposit,... More

I recently attended a wedding at Folly Farm and am now hoping that my sons will choose this for their own weddings. It was lovely to be at a relaxed event, out in the sunshine looking across stunning countryside. There was plenty of room for guests to enjoy the orchard, the views across to the lake or relax in the... More

Stayed at the Folly Farm Centre for a family wedding. It is a superb venue sleeping up to 45 people. Very clean and well maintained. The views from the Centre are superb. The place is so quiet, slept like a baby. There are many walks in the surrounding area. The Centre is owned by Avon Wildlife Trust.

Hi Nick, Many thanks for taking the time to leave us a review, it is much appreciated! I'm glad you hear you slept well, there is nothing quite like sleeping surrounded by a 250-acre nature reserve for a peaceful night. We hope that you'll come back to Folly soon to take advantage of the walking routes - please pop into... More

We went on a badger walk Into the farm woods. A small group of us examined badger occurrence evidence and when the sun set, we watched about 4 badgers running around in their set. It was most interesting and it was a great and rare experience and I would definitely do this again. The guide provided binoculars and gave out... More

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
