Folly Farm Centre Full Description
Folly Farm Centre is an environmentally sustainable, countryside wedding venue nestled in the heart of a 250-acre nature reserve, yet conveniently located just 10 miles from Bristol and Bath. As one of Somerset's hidden gems, Folly Farm offers peaceful seclusion and the most breath-taking views across Chew Valley Lake and the Mendip Hills; an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Surrounded by wildlife and ancient woodlands, Folly Farm is perfect in every season; from the carpets of Spring bluebells and wildflower meadows of Summer, to the golden tones of Autumn and the dramatic Winter skies, the backdrop for your day is sure to be beautiful. All weddings at Folly Farm include exclusive use of the entire venue, including all the 18th-century farm buildings, for a unique and completely private celebration. There will be no hidden extra costs, our in-house caterers and dedicated wedding team will help guide you through the options; leaving you to invite your close family and friends to share the fun of decorating and personalising the venue to suit your style. Owned and managed by Avon Wildlife Trust, all profits are gift-aided back to the Trust to protect local wildlife and inspire people about the importance and benefits of nature. Your wedding at Folly Farm will not only be an incredible day, but will leave an incredible legacy.

We had a wonderful weekend wedding at Folly. It felt like a holiday for those staying from Friday to Sunday as we self catered Friday, with catered breakfasts Saturday and Sunday and all the trimmings Saturday. The food is through their caterer and probably one of the nicest wedding foods we've ever had. Everyone raved about our wedding breakfast and they accommodated those with dietary needs very well. The drinks package was generous. We were able to create the day that best suit us. Unfortun

Could not be any better!
We can’t recommend Folly Farm Centre enough! To start, the venue itself is gorgeous, with the most stunning surroundings. You feel as if you were hundreds of miles from civilization but are still within 20 minutes of Bristol! Every time we visited, we felt an immense calm, which really helped ease our wedding day nervousness! All of the accommodation is lovely, comfortable and has everything you’d need for the few days you’re there. Furthermore, the team are absolutely incredible - special mention to Adelaide, Clare and Jayson. Above and beyond doesn’t cover how far they all went to make sure our experience was as perfect as possible. I would also highly recommend using the in house caterers - every guest said it was some of the best food they’d had in their lives, let alone at a wedding. They’re hugely accommodating of dietary restrictions, which was a huge weight off our backs! All in all, we are so incredibly happy we chose Folly Farm - the day before was an incredible opportunity for our guests to get to know each other, which just made the main day that much easier and better! As the evening was drawing to a close, we sat, watching our guests dance around and realized that somehow it had all been even better than we’d imagined and hoped.

Relaxed and happy
Claire, Adelaide and their team at Folly were so helpful and accommodating. They looked after us throughout our wedding planning and our special day. Everything flowed smoothly and it was a relaxed experience from the start. Nothing was too much trouble and Claire was able to suggest alternatives for our wedding. Folly is a very beautiful place with a beautiful outlook across Blagdon. Our day was too windy to be outside so the ceremony was indoors, which actually made it more intimate. We loved

Incredible wedding weekend at Folly Farm
We are still on an absolute high from our wedding last weekend. Clare, Adelaide, Jayson and all of the staff at Folly Farm couldn’t have been more helpful, communicative and knowledgable and we can’t thank you all enough for making the day and whole weekend run perfectly. The venue itself is stunning, with breathtaking views over Chew Valley which we were lucky enough to have as the backdrop to our ceremony. The option to stay Friday - Sunday meant we could spend more time with friends and fami
