West Lexham is a unique venue for rural retreats or countryside holidays, 2 hours from London, 75 minutes from Cambridge and 45 minutes from Norwich. It is a work of passion and is crafted out of the heritage building that are the legacy of over 1000 years of farming and stewardship of nature. Set in a protected valley with the UK's cleanest chalk stream it is verdant and bursting with nature. We have floating water meadows, ancient trees, lakes and formal gardens for you to explore. We are 90% run on renewables with solar panels for power and a woodchip boiler for heat. All our water is fresh from the chalk aquifer making it rich in minerals and taste delicious.
You can come on holiday as a couple or family and stay in a treehouse or bell tent. Or come as a group and take either the Village Hall and Cottages (sleeps 24) or the Barn and Courtyard rooms (sleeps 28). You can hire them both together or with treehouses to sleep large groups up to 95. With the choice of luxury en-suite rooms, holiday cottages with shared bathrooms, treehouses or glamping bell tents there is something for everyone. We have two flexible events rooms, and plenty of breakout space, gardens and nature to use in whatever creative way you like. We can help you with event planning, food or holiday activity so please ask if you have anything special in mind.
Our passions are creativity, sustainability and personal growth. We like to think that the world and everyone in it has a bright future and we like to do what we can, and help others do what they can to help build that future. To set the scene we have built using traditional skills and eco building techniques using natural or reclaimed materials. We have hand made furniture and filled everywhere with as much artistic flair as possible. We have made an oasis in which to actually live that creative, healthy and empowered future, to bring out the best in everyone. Come and meet our dedicated team and see how we, and our space can inspire you.
