West Lexham is a rural idyll, just 2 hours from London, with holiday cottages (sleep up to 23) and a luxury events barn (sleeps up to 28), that sleep up to 45 people when combined. In addition wonderful treehouses and bell tents can be hired in conjunction to cater to a group of up 75 in a magical environment. West Lexham is perfect for large or small holiday groups, or retreats, workshops and weddings. It is situated in Norfolk, to the east of Kings Lynn, with plenty of good public transport links.

There are 20 acres of garden on a private estate in the heart of the countryside, within a protected valley. The River Nar runs straight through it - it is the cleanest chalk stream in the UK. The varying accommodations are spread between woodland glades and formal gardens so there is plenty of outdoor space to enjoy. Local craftsmen have been used to hand make furniture, mosaics and art to create a unique feel to the place.

At the site there is a boating lake, a tennis court, campfires, games and activities, and lots of lawns. Use of a swimming pool is included when hiring the cottages. You can also choose between self-catering, having your meals delivered and being fully catered for up to 150 people. Ethically sourced and organic food is offered where possible.

West Lexham is run on 90% renewable energy, with solar panels for energy, a woodchip boiler for heat and fresh water from the chalk spring. It is also built with natural and reclaimed materials using eco building techniques.

There are 2 big event rooms and lots of garden space, so there is plenty of room for all kinds of events and corporate gatherings. Lots of different activities can be organised for the groups too. From yoga retreats to creative workshops to presentations with a screen and flip charts, West Lexham is the perfect environment for your group event.

The barn has 13 ensuite bedrooms and a large lounge with 2 raised log burners, plus a dining area with raised balcony for speeches. The barn and courtyard bedrooms sleep up to 28 guests. The Village Hall is equipped with a projector for movie nights, games and a library. A great place to hang out or seat up to 23 people at a large banqueting table, together with the holiday cottages which sleep the same number.

Food and meals can be arranged if pre-ordered.
