Folly Farm Centre is an environmentally sustainable meeting and event venue nestled in the heart of a 250-acre nature reserve, yet conveniently located just 10 miles from Bristol and Bath.

As one of Somerset’s hidden gems, ‘Folly’ as it is affectionately known, offers peaceful seclusion and the most breath-taking views across Chew Valley Lake and the Mendip Hills; an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

With six well-equipped meeting rooms, additional breakout areas and comfortable farmhouse style accommodation, this beautifully restored 18th century farmhouse offers an inspirational and extremely private venue for day and residential meetings, conferences, team-building activities, training days and corporate events. All paper on site is recycled – including the conference pads. We also use solar and biomass heating, and our wastewater is broken down in our reed bed sewage system.

Best of all, owned and managed by Avon Wildlife Trust, all profits are gift-aided back to the Trust to protect local wildlife and inspire people about the importance and benefits of nature.

Conference Facilities Overview:

  •  Six meeting rooms with additional break-out areas for up to 150 delegates
  • 20 farmhouse-style and studio bedrooms accommodating up to 58 delegates
  • Unique and private countryside location with amazing views and plenty of fresh air
  • Full access for delegates to our 250-acre nature reserve, including an ‘access-for-all’ trail suitable for wheelchair users

What Our Clients Say

I have used ‘Function Fixers’ now on many occasions and they are my go-to for literally any event I need help with organising. Heather is an absolute superstar who is always there to help and goes above and beyond to find me the perfect venue and make sure it is a smooth transition from start to finish.

I would highly recommend them to anyone and am so thankful to have found the company…absolute life and time savers, and certainly ‘fixers’!!

Really impressed at the speed and efficiency of this service. I gave Chen a really tricky brief and they smashed it out the park and really helped my team.

I need to find a venue large enough to host a group for Easter Retreat. We was beginning to worry that we would not be able to host it in England which would have meant taking it to America or Canada. However we where saved by the Bell by Heather from function fixers, she was the groups shining armer in this case. Heather was able to come up with three or four options that was large enough to host the group also flexible to the groups need. Heather was able to do all the stressful part of negotiations with the venues right to the end and all our group did was to agree with the venue on the date the booking payment was needed We are extremely grateful for all that Heather did for us and would recommend Heather to anyone looking for a venue for any occasion so leaving yourselves stress free to enjoy your day. Thank you Heather

I've been working with Carrie for the past 2-3 months to finalise a venue for a 250pax conference we are hosting next year. She was exceptional in putting forward appropriate suggestions and even better at managing our changing requests and circumstances. Nothing was too much trouble. We have just signed on a venue and we are delighted. Highly recommend!
