Why we've chosen Fernhill Farm

Fernhill Farm- if you’re looking for somewhere a little different to host your conference, workshop or family gathering, then Fernhill Farm might be just the place. The cowsheds on this 160-acre working farm in the Mendips have been converted into an alternative, relaxed venue, with accommodation for up to 55 people in the adjacent eco-camping barns (underfloor heating throughout!) , apartments and Ramshackle Arcs. Andrew and Jen are committed to developing the farm into a self-sustaining unit, having installed a self-computerised log boiler, water harvesting, and wetland eco-treatment system which purifies all dirty water without the use of chemicals, which in turn has created new habitats for wildlife species.

Super green & earnest, group bookings, weddings, stag and hen weekends, birthday parties. Bookings  taken from groups of 10 people up to 200!


These nomadic new editions are the Ramshackles, with three available to book individually or alongside the Barns, Saloon, Loft or Caravan for a really rustic: Sty under the Sky FHF Experience
