Welcome to the Folly Farm Centre
The Folly Farm Centre is a venue at the heart of Folly Farm, a stunning 250-acre nature reserve close to both Bath and Bristol which is owned and managed by Avon Wildlife Trust. It is a very special place—a place to learn and explore, a place for inspiration, a place to lie in the grass and discover a new world. It’s a place for everyone.
Whether you’re seeking a conference venue, arranging team-building, planning staff training and education activities, or looking for the perfect wedding venue, the Folly Farm Centre offers you a truly unique experience. What’s more, all profits from the centre are gift-aided to Avon Wildlife Trust, to support its work with local wildlife.
The Centre is equipped with state-of-the-art conference and education facilities and comfortable en-suite accommodation ideal for business and leisure. At Folly Farm you’ll discover a unique venue, a place that opens your eyes and changes your perspective.

Hold your next conference or meeting at our state-of-the-art conference centre.
Happy staff are 12% more productive*. Therefore happy, healthy conference delegates will be more productive too!
We have worked closely with our caterers to tailor make a special ‘detox’ delegate package for January and February 2015.
By definition a detox is ‘a period of time where the body is rid of unhealthy substances’. Think super foods at lunchtime and swapping coffee and cake for sumptuous smoothies!
However, detox is not just about the body. With Avon Wildlife Trust’s 250-acre nature reserve on our doorstep, which is a beautiful setting for walks, outside meetings and teambuilding activities, your mind will be taken care of too.
