Fernhill Farm

Hello! A warm welcome to Fernhill Farm

Here you can discover the ethos behind Fernhill, meet the team who manage this site, see a glimpse of its historical industrial scars, and find out about grazing livestock living alongside resident and seasonal wildlife.

Located on the top of the Mendip Hills in Somerset, at the heart of the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) we can be found on the main road (B3134) that links Burrington Coombe with the small city of Wells.

Just over 5 miles from Cheddar, 20 miles from Bath and Bristol, and 7 miles from Bristol airport we offer real hilltop countryside within easy reach.

Rustic farm venues, on-site accommodation, functional event extras and renewable energy installations ensure we tread lightly on this land and make this award-winning working livestock farm An Arcadian Place to Stay.

Eco Venue with Accommodation

All the original stone building are Grade II Listed and our Horseshoe Barns are currently the main social space here offering a complete versatile venue with accommodation.

Converted from the original cow sheds in the authentic horseshoe footprint, this stone barn has been in operation since 2008 and provides a non-seasonal safe space, perfect for gatherings whatever the weather.

Using reclaimed building materials, wool insulation, wood cladding and wooden floors, our central heating system is designed to use home-grown logs and capture solar thermal rays whilst incorporating rain water harvesting to flush toilets that feeds our WET System.

Throughout the years we have added solar electricity, additional accommodation units, Saloon and Loft facilities and in 2019 we are excited to be able to expand our eco venue offerings.

Staying at Fernhill

Here at Fernhill Farm, we have a variety of different accommodation options, from camping out in the fields to our four-poster bridal suite and pretty much everything in between. Whether you are looking for mid-week sanctuary or wanting to host a weekend celebration, our truly unique surroundings are perfect for all occasions. Ideally suited to groups of 10 or more, with 40 beds and unlimited camping on-site, we pride ourselves on offering cosy accommodation with social spaces.

Please get in touch so we can discuss your requirements. For larger events, please go to our events page.
