Folly Farm - Magical Wedding Venue
An award-winning, sustainable wedding venue located in the heart of a 250-acre nature reserve in the Chew Valley (10 miles from Bath and Bristol) and is a magical wedding venue for all seasons. Folly Farm provides an inspirational setting for weddings and can accommodate up to 100 guests for the ceremony, 150 for the evening and 45 guests in overnight accommodation, as well as an option for camping.
With woodland bluebells and daffodils amongst the orchards in spring, wildflower meadows in summer, apple trees and golden leaves in autumn and wood smoke and dramatic skies in winter - Folly Farm’s small, friendly team can help you tailor your day to truly be one to remember. Truly a photographer’s dream, the views across Chew Valley Lake provide an amazing backdrop for your all-important wedding photos.
With exclusive access from Friday 5pm to Sunday 11am, you can enjoy your wedding weekend surrounded by the people that mean the most. Enjoy a family meal the night before the wedding in the Old Dairy restaurant or perhaps a BBQ on the lawn, before waking up to birdsong on your big day. With departure at 11am on the Sunday, you can truly enjoy a relaxed wedding weekend.
Three unique ceremony rooms are available, from the glass-surround Atrium (a popular choice for spring and summer weddings), the oak-beamed Oak and Willow (which boasts stunning views over Chew Valley Lake)and the beautifully intimate Old Diary (popular with autumn and winter weddings with a log-burning fire and flagstone floor).
Folly Farm offers 20 bedrooms in self-catering studios and an 18th-century converted farmhouse. Camping is also available in the summer months.
The stunning rural location means delicious, local produce is in abundance. Food is fresh and seasonal and often picked from the kitchen garden. Folly Farm’s caterers can tailor menus to meet a variety of budgets and tastes, from a three course meal to a hog roast and everything in-between.
Folly Farm Centre is run by a small friendly team, that have a genuine passion in helping couples create the wedding they have always dreamed off. The team encourage couples to treat Folly Farm as their home away from home for the weekend, creating a wedding celebration as unique as couples getting married
