Fernhill farm is a holistic eco-farm where livestock graze in open flat fields and woodlands on top of Cheddar Gorge in Somerset. Dating back to the 17th Century, Grade II listed barns now offer rustic farm venues with a unique range of onsite accommodation. Welcoming groups from 10 to 10,000, we provide eco-venues that incorporate natural and renewable resources, leave little trace and allows the simple things in life to perhaps still be the best

The space
The Balcony Bundle consists of the Loft accommodation with the Saloon & Concrete Pad party space located beneath The Loft in the Ag Shed. It is used for a variety of different purposes, including muddy boot farm groups, festival production offices, wool and willow craft workshops, dye house for yarns and also a safe warm space from the weather for festival style weddings and gatherings here at the farm.

Concrete floors with basic kitchen and dining amenities, tableware, glassware and sofas, this centrally heated Saloon space is as versatile as the imagination, with three access doors to connect to all areas. Wifi is available when pre-ordered

Located just outside are the Saloon loos with a key-coded private Staff Wet room and an additional shower and 4 toilets, sink and hand drying facilities enable large groups to hire the Balcony Bundle and Ag Shed venue for exclusive gatherings

I run Fernhill Farm with my partner Andy, on top of Cheddar Gorge just South of Bristol. Our eco-farm is certified regenerative where we are demonstrating grass-fed cattle, sheep and a few pigs in the woods can aid biodiversity when managed accordingly. I am passionate about all things woolly and also manage (Website hidden by Airbnb) from our farm too. Our camping barns are restored cattle sheds, with underfloor heating, solar electricity, and we encourage recycling. We believe in treading lightly on the land, and are delighted to offer an environmentally friendly venue for your stay.

During your stay

Andy is the full-time nomadic shepherd here, managing over 3000 sheep all across the Mendip Hills:
A lifetime developing skills and a passion for blade shearing is evident through the years representing England at international sheep shearing competitions, along with recognition from BISCA in their Long Standing Service Award 2018 for his contributions to the shearing industry. Andy trains, teaches, and promotes multipurpose sheep and their benefits on the land. Welcoming urban faces to our rural landscape helps keep the grey Mendip mist at bay through the long shepherding days.
Long-time partner to Andy and mum to Kyle and Seth, Jen is behind the events business and is now turning her attention to natural fibres:
Products with Provenance is our holistic message to re-educate, recognise true potential and incorporate every aspect of our natural resources and the key goal of our fibre business is to reposition wool in society as a primary product rather than by-product from the sheep meat industry. Our fibre shop supplies fleece, yarns, felts, fabric and ready to wear garments
