Folly Farm Nature Reserve


Folly Farm nature reserve (owned and managed by Avon Wildlife Trust) boasts 250 acres of wildflower meadow and ancient woodlands and is a fantastic place to visit to relax, walk and enjoy the stunning surroundings. This year, Folly Farm was voted in the top 50 picnic spots by  The Times, so stock up on delicious produce in one of the many farm shops in the area and visit!   

The reserve is home to a variety of wildlife including: wildflowers, badgers, deer, foxes and many species of butterfly. Avon Wildlife Trust often offer wildlife events, so keep a look out on the what’s on page for owl and badger prowls.
