Visit Wales gold award

We're team gold!

We were thrilled just ahead of the half term holidays to receive a gold accolade from Visit Wales.

The Visit Wales gold award goes to attractions that achieve excellence for their facilities and customer service. It's a huge pat on the back for our hardworking and dedicated team as we get ready for a busy summer. One of the areas which received high praise was Cwtch Coffee, our new coffee house.

Our managing director, Chris Ebsworth, said;

“Winning Visit Wales’ gold award was very important to us, as it’s independent verification of everything Folly Farm has achieved and creates a huge sense of pride within the organisation. Guests have already commented on how relaxing our new coffee venue is, which is exactly what we had in mind when we first planned the refurbishment."

Cabinet Secretary for the Economy and Infrastructure, Ken Skates, added:

“Investing and developing our tourism product is key if we are to drive higher tourism earnings for the Welsh economy. Folly Farm demonstrates that continuous investment and keeping their product fresh and exciting for new and repeat visitors reaps rewards and I’d like to congratulate them on achieving a gold award for their efforts.”
