West Lexham is a gorgeous Georgian manor estate nestled in 21 acres of private sweeping lawns, magical woodland, wildflower meadows and beautiful manicured gardens. Mixed with historic converted farm buildings we have a wedding venue that simply put ‘stands out’.
Have your reception in our newly converted funky ‘argi-chic’ barn or in a funky tipi overlooking the lake. For exclusive use we can accommodate up to 70 people on the estate in an eclectic mix of executive ensuite rooms, beautiful tree houses, cool cottages, cosy yurts and bohemian glamping.
We hope that we offer the ideal Barn wedding venue in beautiful Norfolk countryside. We have kept our Barn's traditional beams, the original brick arches and flint walls, but added contemporary polished concrete floors, gloriously glazed openings and colour-change, hand made lighting. You can hold a beautiful ceremony in here or simply feast and dance in style. The garden is right outside for drinks, BBQs and sunshine.
On one of the manors most beautiful and romantic settings we have a choice of marquee and tipis for 50 to 150 guests. Set on the manor lawns and at the edge of our sparkling boating lake you can boast and toast in this magical spot. Carry on in canvas and nature and have your own exclusive wedding glamping, tree houses and yurts accommodation for your guests.
Our wedding Barn is a fabulously flexible space. 24m long by nearly 8 wide, it is perfect for a party of up to 140. There are a number of ways to set out the tables as you prefer and some room for a dancefloor or the ceremony. We hand made our tables from the doors of the Barn, with hand turned barley twist legs and paired them with most stylish and colourful chairs we could find. Alternatively we can hire in round tables or any other tables if you have a specific vision.
If you have a wedding of less than 80 you can pull the sliding doors across to make the Barn into two sections. This way you can have a dining room (12 x 7.8m) and go through to a dancefloor and sitting room (11.5 x 7.8m) with log burning stoves.
Either way there are two sunny conservatories (4 x 4m) to create a themed entrance hall, extra dancefloor, chill out area, photo booth or whatever you can dream up. Huge sliding glass doors allow light to pour in both sides of the barn and create a great flow inside and out if you want to create a garden party feel.
The double height entrance hall with original beams and hand made lighting can also themed. It has three large loos including an access loo. The whole barn and garden is wheel chair friendly, please let us know if you need anything in particular to assist any of your guests.
Take advantage of our beam lighting and hand made copper lights to create the perfect atmosphere. We have a colour-change LED programmer that can mix any colour of your choice and even arrange colours in automatic sequence. Please feel free to bring your own lighting as well, fairy lights and disco lights all help to set the scene. We are happy to help out and suggest ideas.
The Barn kitchen is fully equipped to cater for 140 guests to the highest standards. You might not go in there much so might not care that it is stylishly fashioned out of reclaimed science cabinets, but it is. We work closely with the best local caterers to be able to offer you literally anything that you can think up. We are happy to go through this with you and/or put you in touch with the caterers directly. If you have someone special in mind to cook for you who you would rather use then we can help arrange that too.
The Barn Garden is perfect for a sunny drinks party, a BBQ outdoor meal or pizza making. If your dream is to have a meal outside in the sun without a marquee this is the perfect place. If it does rain it is easy to move everything inside, as it can be equipped for both eventualities. Of course you are more than welcome to sue the wider gardens for eating, drinking and merriment as well. Woodland weddings and ceremonies under trees have something magical about them, we feel.
Bring your own live bands or DJs for your first dance and ensuing revelry. We can make recommendations if needed. There are a number of ways to arrange the music and dancing which we are happy to help with including sound systems and technical support. Music in the Barn can carry on until 11pm, after which the Village Hall is perfect for an after party.
We can accommodate up to 95 guests on site. Have a look at our accommodation page to see the luxury en-suites bedrooms, holiday cottages, treehouses and bell tents.

“Just wanted to write to thank you and your team for all your work on our special day. The site was incredible, and everything you guys did was great. Laura and Ian were really responsive to our needs and made it all run really smoothly despite our occasionally chaotic organisational skills.
All the guests still rave about how amazing the site was, and we're still regularly being told it was peoples 'best wedding ever'.”
