West Lexham's woodland treehouses and glamping bell tents are testament to quirky accommodation. The family-run site sits in 21 acres of private Norfolk estate; entwined with meandering river, woodland glades, thoughtfully designed gardens, wild swimming lake and just 25 mins from miles of sandy, unspoiled beaches. The ethos is sustainably-driven, running on 95% renewable energy. The unique accommodation is playfully built with salvaged materials, creating organic charm in every detail.

There are 6 treehouses in total, ranging from cosy woodland cabins that sleep 2 to the most impressive tree-top builds that sleep 6 and include a fully-equipped kitchen and bathroom.

All of the treehouses have a log burner that warms the air with the delicious smell of seasoned wood and central heating through the winter months.

Unzip the door to the luxury bell tents and enjoy views across the forest and lakes. Each is furnished boutique-camping style. They're 5m wide and 7ft tall, so there's plenty of space to spread out in. Each is decorated with proper wooden beds, rugs, rustic wooden furniture and fairy lights, with plenty of extra blankets and hot water bottles.

The décor throughout the site is bright and playful, with colourful bedspreads, knitted water bottles, upcycled furniture and fairy lights. You have to see it to appreciate the level of detail that has gone into making every corner magical!

Treehouses and bell tents without their own bathroom or kitchen have access to the majestic garden washroom and kitchen – where every detail has been taken care of, making sure everyone can enjoy the luxury of a steaming-hot walk-in shower and uniquely decorated loos (yes, flushing toilets, proper basins and mirrors!). The kitchen is ready for every meal and the perfect place to meet other families and new friends. There's even a wood-fired pizza oven! West Lexham can help organise delicious food hampers with all the ingredients you'll need for a yummy meal (You'll need to pre-order).

Enjoy the garden by day and stargaze by night. The spirit of West Lexham is that glampers can meet each other, share stories around the campfire and food in the kitchen. Children can run around and play together in the ultimate natural setting. The boating lake, tennis court and grounds create a wonderful playground for big kids and little kids.

Bell Tents and Tinker Treehouse are closed during the coldest winter months. All the other Treehouses have central heating and are delightful in winter.

Absolutely loved our stay!

My boyfriend and I have just returned from staying at West Lexham and have absolutely loved our stay! Although our tent was not what was shown in the pictures (It was a dark brown rubber texture as opposed to a white canvas) so I was a little disappointed at first when I arrived… however once night fell we both felt that we had the best tent as you could not see out lights were on… which meant the sun would not be too bright in the morning and we would have a lot more privacy as the would be now silhouettes! 
Our tent was next to the river and it was sooo beautiful! I have never been camping before and I wasn’t sure what I would find when we got there I was so so pleased at our accommodation and facilities!
I am not a nature lover however my boyfriend is! But even I have to admit watching the little Robins hopping around the tent and the House Martins woo’ing each other it was something out of a Disney film.
We had a little drama while getting into the onsite row boats… you have to jump into one the crawl over to the other and as I struggle standing up on land I was all over the place in the boat but once we got the knack of things we were off!
Overall I would give West Lexham 8/10, as although it is beautiful and we are thinking of going back!... you are very much left to your own devises! So if you’re after evening entertainment, a local pub (That’s within walking distance), TV, etc. I would advise you not to go. If you do go bring a pack of cards or something as there is little to do once you have walked all around, used the boats, tennis court and cooked dinner.
