Norfolk Manor - Funky Event Spaces, Special Occasions, Weddings, Cool Accommodation, Residential Business Venue
West Lexham Manor is a thriving, exciting and ethically focused agri-chic venue. Opened for corporate and private clients in 2011 the 21 acres have been transformed as part of the Colville families’ ambitious project to bring this former Holkham farm estate back into local community life and become an example of self sustainable practice and environmentally sensitive building practice.
We have created a unique blend of an elegant country manor estate and a beautifully bohemian woodland village all infused with laid-back vibes and a passion for learning and living in a creative and eco-friendly way.
Exclusive Funky Venue - Norfolk
The family have created a refreshing change for corporate & private clients wanting a funky venue to hire or a space to escape and retreat for a weekend in magical woodlands. Every corner at West Lexham reveals a different fairy tale building, tree house, hobbit home hideaway, or cosy woodland cabin. West Lexham can be exclusively hired for any event or occasion.
By bringing all the redundant farm buildings back to life we have an uber cool eclectic mix of luxury, bohemian funky spaces and accommodation. Our huge grain barn is now a spicy spacious events hall. Tucked around the eves are several executive ensuite rooms. 3 prestigious traditional Norfolk cottages are followed by our woodland tree homes. The lawns are perfect for a large tipi or marquee that overlooks the boating lake.
We are bringing to life our shared visions for a bright future and a more sustainable way of living and working. Our passion is for creating uniquely beautiful and natural spaces for people to come together to play, learn, relax and just be.
