The Village Hall is the events and workshops space for the holiday cottages. It is a traditional beamed 13 x 8m room and entrance lobby, a parquet floor and huge fireplace. The room opens onto the fully equipped kitchen in Hall Holiday cottage. The heritage entrance lobby may be the oldest building on site and leads onto the main garden in front of the Manor House. It is next to the swimming pool and Pool House terrace the other side.
The Village Hall is a historic room. For the millennia that West Lexham was a working farm, the 30 or so villagers all worked on the farm. They all gathered in this room for festivals, weddings and celebrations. Hall Holiday cottage was the farm office until the 1990's, but the Village Hall was always the action room!
Nowadays it is a much loved space to work or relax in. It has been tried and tested for everything from yoga to collaborative leadership courses. We can set it up for you with sofas to relax on, tables to work and feast on, or totally cleared for dancing, or anywhere in between! Food and tea can be served out of the adjoining kitchen.
We can set it up for presentations with a screen and flip charts for working sessions. To relax why not set up the projector for movie nights, or try the wide selection of games and eclectic library. All the fire wood is provided for your stay.
The lawns and garden are there for you to use for working or relaxing in the sun. Take a stroll around the wider grounds, row a boat down the lake, or rent the shell house for as an extra room. We are near the famous North Norfolk Coast and countless other exciting local attractions. The ancient ruins and pub food of Castle Acre are half an hour's walk away. There's plenty to discover once you're settled in.

“What an amazingly beautiful and inspirational venue! Ed and Isabelle, along with the rest of the staff have been incredibly welcoming and accommodating. Their care for the environment and people is very admirable. This venue was the perfect place to hold our photography retreat. We loved every second. They also recommended an amazing caterer. There is nothing quite like the English countryside. We hope to be back again”.
