We chose Folly Farm for our conference first and foremost because of the
scenery and location - our team look forward to getting out of the city for the day.
Also, we’re in the green sector and love that our money is helping a green venue.
We feel like we’re making a difference.

great food leads to great ideas

From Somerset stew with home-baked bread, freshly-made sandwiches and seasonal soup, to BBQ feasts and melt-in-your-mouth home-made cookies...we’re certain our kitchen will impress.

Vegan, vegetarian and bespoke menus can be designed to suit your needs and an honesty bar is available on request.

The Old Dairy

Executive Studio Room

Room for everyone

For residential conferences and events, up to 49* delegates can stay in the 10 farmhouse-style and 10 studio bedrooms, all located on-site.

At the end of the day delegates can relax next to the log-burning fire, take dusk walks around the nature reserve, or sit under the stars by the fire pit.

The next morning, wake up to a hearty breakfast served in the Old Dairy dining room.

*Maximum occupancy will increase to 56 by Spring 2020.

The green alternative

If you’re an ethical business like us, you’ll love the fact that all paper on site is recycled – including the conference pads – and the pens you can buy use vegetable inks. We use solar and biomass heating, wastewater is broken down in our reed bed sewage system, and we even harvest rainwater. Best of all, every penny of profit goes directly to the Avon Wildlife Trust to protect local wildlife.
