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' as it is affectionately known, 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 of the 18th-century farm buildings, for a unique and completely private celebration. Invite close family and friends to arrive the day before the wedding and share the fun of decorating and personalising the venue, followed by a pre-wedding evening meal. Choose to hold your ceremony in the charming oak-beamed converted barn, the traditional Old Dairy, or the glass atrium filled with natural light. Alternatively, you can choose to say 'I do' outside with a gorgeous ceremony overlooking the Chew Valley Lake, or a blessing in the orchard? There's plenty of space for marquees too - and we can recommend suppliers. The 20 farmhouse-style bedrooms accommodate up to 46 guests and, in the warmer months, additional guests have the option of camping in the paddock. The happy couple can spend the first night of married life in our spacious bridal suite or may choose to hire a bell tent for a night of glamping! Folly Farm can hold up to 150 evening guests. Food is incredibly important at Folly, so couples can choose from a traditional three-course meal, relaxed platters, a hog-roast and everything in between! Owned and managed by Avon Wildlife Trust, all profits are gift-aided back to the Trust to protect local wildlife.
