Folly Farm was the first and only venue we visited! The moment our eyes set on those rolling hills and the stunning views that Folly offered it was an easy decision. Folly Farm (and all it’s kind natured and helpful staff) encapsulated everything we had wanted: a relaxed and charming vibe with all our favourite people. All the things that were important to us Folly Farm helped us to achieve with little stress and a genuine sense of pride and kindness. We left Folly Farm on the Sunday after the most heart warming weekend and left as Mr And Mrs Scales hand in hand. We’re still beaming, thank you.

A magical wedding

Our beautiful setting will give your big day the touch of magic it deserves. Overlooking the tranquil waters of Chew Valley Lake to the west, the ancient woodlands and meadows at Folly Farm provide the perfect backdrop for weddings all year round. In summer, the fields are full of rare wildflowers, and in autumn the trees ablaze with colour. Winter brings dramatic skies and cosy wood fires, and in spring Folly Farm bursts to life with daffodils and bluebells.


do it your way

We are fully licensed to hold civil ceremonies, and our weekend weddings give exclusivity for the entire weekend. Choose to hold your ceremony in the oak-beamed converted barn, the traditional Old Dairy complete with flagstone floor or the glass Atrium. Or why not make the most of the stunning views with a ceremony in the apple orchard or overlooking Chew Valley Lake? The unique and relaxed atmosphere at Folly Farm is much sought after.

Wedding venue with accommodation

When you book Folly Farm for your wedding weekend, you’ll have exclusive use of the venue from 5pm on the Friday through to 11am on the Sunday. Up to 45 guests can stay in shared accommodation in our lovingly restored 18th century farmhouse and converted cow sheds. In the summer, guests can camp in the paddock too.


Our rural location means delicious seasonal produce is in abundance for your wedding breakfast and often picked from our kitchen garden. Our recommended caterers will expertly tailor menus to suit a variety of budgets and tastes, from a traditional three-course meal to a hog roast and everything in between. Folly Farm is fully licensed, with local beer and cider to complement the bubbly!

We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Folly Farm to anyone looking for a terrific wedding venue. We don’t think anything locally matched Folly’s beauty, space and atmosphere – not to mention the people we worked with who were fantastic hosts throughout.
