A photographic event far removed to the norm!

The Residency of the South is a true festival of photography and our accommodation reflects this unique event. Nestled within the stunning surrounds of a 250 acre nature reserve and wedding venue in the heart of the Chew Valley our accommodation has been selected to give you the best experience possible.

No need to travel to the venue – everything you need is right here! After a solid day (and nights) education and entertainment what better way to relax then to crash out in one of our luxury glamping tipis within our wildflower festival meadow! For just £220 for the two nights, these two-berth boho sanctuaries are right on site and fitted with comfortable beds within and adorned with an obscene amount of fairy lights and bunting – helping create a beautiful oasis of calm for you to slumber away in – just bring your bedding! Shower and toilet blocks are all on site.

Share with a friend and enjoy this incredible glamping experience together or if travelling to the event alone we will be setting up a buddy system within our VIP group on Facebook where people can arrange their accommodation options with other members of the community.

If indoor accommodation is more your thing then there are a number of shared rooms within the beautiful converted farmhouse that houses the Folly Farm centre, the majority of which are en-suite. With only 9 of these available and ranging from sleeping 2 or 3 people please get in touch after booking your accommodation ticket to arrange your rooms with us here at the lab.

We will be on hand any time to assist with your accommodation options and manage the groups. Email for more details or to arrange your accommodation options. For those not wanting to stay on site there are 3 hotels within a 10 min drive of the venue listed below.
