Set within a 250-acre nature reserve, Folly Farm offers a whole range team building activities...

Step out of the meeting room, immerse yourself in this idyllic rural location, and work together with your colleagues (or friends) to complete team challenges and activities whilst breathing in the fresh Somerset air.

Seasonal conservation with avon wildlife trust

These rewarding and meaningful conservation activities are not only fantastic team building exercises, but they support the management of the reserve whilst improving staff well-being and team cohesion.

Tasks vary depending on the time of year, but can include coppicing, charcoal making, tree planting and path maintenance. 

Watch our short video above to find out more.

“I’ve had nothing but positive feedback from everyone who has taken part! It’s nice to know we have supported such a fantastic charity by doing it and I’m sure it won’t be the last time some of us volunteer or visit your sites.”

Bushcraft and Survival Skills with Avon Wildlife Trust

Challenge your survival skills in Folly Farm's ancient woodlands; learn how to survive and thrive in the wilderness, acquiring new skills, completing challenges and learning more about each other.

Activities include how to light a fire without matches, how to make a shelter and how identify the tracks and trails that wildlife leave behind.

Sheep herding

You will be challenged to herd a small flock of sheep in to a pen – what could possibly go wrong?

Sheep herding challenges  team members to learn and grow by taking them out of their familiar comfort zones. This 'ewe-nique' activity is ideal for building trust, collaboration and enhancing communication skills - it delves deep into people’s psyches bringing out all their motives and characteristics. 


Segway Trail

You’ll be kitted out in protective gear and your instructor will teach you how to operate the segway, mastering stops and turns before you head out into the reserve on two wheels.

This is an amazing way to take in the sights and sounds of the nature around us, plus you’ll have a chance to return to the ‘track’ for some competitive fun and games.

We have held several team away days at Folly Farm. The conference and break-out areas – both inside and out – are excellent, staff at the centre are always helpful and the location is beautiful. I have also used the farm for a personal birthday celebration and can recommend it as an inspiring venue for both business and leisure.

Indoor activities

If you’re looking for a slower-paced activity or fancy learning a new skill, we offer a whole range of indoor activities including cookery challenges, gin and wine tasting sessions and cocktail making masterclasses.

We also have a selection of indoor team challenges as well as a series of health and wellbeing activities to promote a sense of calm and focus during your event.
