    Take a refreshing step away from conventional wedding venues and immerse yourself in the rustic charm of Folly Farm – a place of dreams, adventures and simple pleasures.

    Hidden in the heart of Avon Wildlife Trust’s 250-acre nature reserve, yet conveniently located just 10 miles from Bristol and Bath, you will find a collection of beautifully restored 18th century barn buildings, a pretty courtyard and an established orchard.

    From a traditional ceremony in the oak-beamed barn or glass-roofed atrium, to an outdoor blessing with far-reaching views across the Chew Valley, or on hay bales beneath the blossoming apple trees, every wedding is entirely different to the last.

    With unrivalled flexibility, couples have the unique opportunity to create a day that truly reflects their style, personalities and their relationship, with endless personalisation possibilities and a dedicated wedding team with a ‘can-do’ approach to all requests.

    Delicious, seasonal food is in abundance and is often picked from the kitchen garden. The in-house caterers can prepare traditional three-course meals, relaxed platters, a hog-roast and everything in between.

    Folly Farm can cater for up to 150 wedding guests with farmhouse-style accommodation for 46, plus the option of camping in the paddock in warmer months.

    Folly Farm is an environmentally sustainable wedding venue which is owned and managed by Avon Wildlife Trust; all profits gift-aided back to the Trust to protect local wildlife and inspire people about the importance and benefits of nature. This really is so much more than your average wedding venue.
