What. A. Venue.
The Folly at The Farmhouse is absolutely beautiful, stunningly memorable and is the perfect, private paradise for any bride and groom. My wife and I married here in July 2022 and the team made it so easy throughout. The venue itself is fantastic. The wedding reception space was incredibly bright, intimate and gorgeously put together. The huge private gardens outside were brilliant for the children in our family to relax and play and made for a beautiful setting for some of our photos.

What a Wedding Celebration!
Nothing is ever too much for the girls at The Folly. They know how to look after their guests. From cutting the cake to lighting the fire they were so attentive. My best friend had the best time and we’ll remember that night always. Thank you to Paige and Anabel. You’re wonderful.

Truly Magical
Me and my husband just want to say a massive thank you to all staff at the farmhouse. They made our wedding day truly magical and made our wedding planning and transition so easy and stress free! They made us feel welcome and so special. It’s an absolutely stunning venue and can’t recommend this place enough. The team are so warm and bubbly! Thanks for everything you did for us.
