About West Lexham
A Family Home at the Heart of a Rural Community
The home of the Colville family who have worked tirelessly to bring the heritage farm buildings back to life for all to enjoy, West Lexham Manor has been the historic heart of a community working closely with the land. There has always been a farm and a family at West Lexham. The estate formed part of the famous Holkham Estate which stretches to the stunning Norfolk coast, only a short drive away.
Now we are bringing to life a new vision for the estate that supports everyone involved to thrive and follow their passions in service of something bigger than all of us. Step into a dream made reality, living with a deeper connection to nature, to ourselves and to each other. We are bringing to life our personal visions for a bright future and a more sustainable way of living and working and we’d love to share it with you!
Community is at the heart of how we do things at West Lexham – both as a team on site and out and about in the beautiful Brecklands. We are getting to know our local community and how we can best support each other to thrive - from bringing in skilled local ecobuilders to build tree houses and hopper huts alongside working holiday volunteers and young apprentices from around the world - to providing a learning resource for the wider community in the form of our organic market gardens, and eco-friendly infrastructures as well as place for creativity, fun and spending time unwinding together in the outdoors.
Come and Experience the Magic of West Lexham for Yourself...
Come and find your place here, follow your heart to the cosy hearth of a hobbit home or hopper hut, tuck yourself away with your dreams in the tree house, bask by the lake with the geese and swans. Come to learn, come to play, come to unwind with your loved ones and take it all in...
You will arrive into a world where you are greeted with a warm smile and life slows down to a gentler pace. Open, curious and friendly – we love to meet new people and share ideas and stories round the campfire or over a cup of tea in the outdoor kitchen.
Life flows beautifully at West Lexham. Start the day with the birds and your morning coffee, take a stroll around the lake and take in the views of the gorgeous countryside around us, take a dip in the pool or lake before cooking up some tasty local produce for breakfast on your woodburning stove or funky camping gear.
Refresh your perspective and recharge your mojo with a blend of restful nature retreat, chats and laughter under the stars, flexible and inspiring workspaces and creative and quirky installations and structures around every corner. Venture out to the castle and priory a pleasant walk away, find yourself by the fire in a country pub, or head down to the famous North Norfolk Coast with its sweeping vistas and miles of golden sand.
Come with your team, or your tribe – West Lexham offers a beautiful natural environment with an eclectic range of accommodation to suit all needs- peaceful, modern ensuite rooms, cosy cottages, vintage chic glamping and rustic woodland dwellings. Our funky heritage barn conversion provides an airy, bright space with full height spaces and intimate meeting rooms for blue sky thinking and deep learning and sharing.
The Georgian Manor House provides a stunning backdrop for your wedding or special celebrations. Pick your spot amongst the vibrant and colourful gardens, weeping willows and glowing copper beech overlooking the lake. Stroll out across fragrant meadows at sunset to capture magical memories of your day, celebrate with champagne - laced with fresh raspberries from the garden - on the pool-side lawn. Messing around in boats, dancing til dawn... Whatever you dream of is here!
