I camped for 1 weekend during my friends wedding. The venue was beautiful, the grounds are fantastic and the purpose of the venue is really inspiring. Thank you for making my friends wedding so perfect!

A friend suggested Folly Farm when we told them we were getting married, mostly because it fitted with the type of venue we were looking for but also because they are very wheelchair accessible. As two wheelchair users, we visited Folly with trepidation. We had previously visited 3 other venues with a similar theme, and non of them offered us... More

Folly Farm was the venue for my wedding in early October 2015. The venue is striking and individual and is set in the beautoful Somerset countryside - what's not to love!? It is quiet and picturesque and for a wedding it was perfect. We had the venue to ourselves for two nights and over 45 of our guests could sleep... More

I have just returned from 2 nights at Folly Farm. The venue was booked for my sister's wedding and didn't disappoint us. It has studios and dormitory like rooms with bunk beds.

Hi Steve, Thanks for taking the time to post a review. In the farmhouse, the small bedroom on the ground floor doesn't have a toilet in the room, but there is one close by. We always make this clear to our wedding couples, who assign their guest's accommodation for the wedding weekend. We're so glad you enjoyed our picturesque surroundings... 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.
