Barn Garden

Private Garden

You will have exclusive use of the walled barn garden. Of course you have the use of the whole of the grounds and gardens at West Lexham as well. But barn garden is just outside the sliding glass doors of the dining room and will be your very own. The doors can be fully opened bring the outside in and creating a fantastic flow in side and out with all the fun of countryside living and fresh air.

Creative Ideas

We can set up a marquee on the lawn if you need more covered space or organize games and events on the lawn. We do full events planning and organize a dazzling array of activities if you would like.

Allowing us to serve you food on the lawn can be lots of fun. We particularly enjoy doing meals that have a course served in different places and sneak in some theatrical elements!

The wider gardens include extensive walks along the river, lake, ponds and through the water meadows and trees. There is also a tennis court, so bring your rackets and tennis balls, although we do have some if you forget. You can also take one of our two rowing boats out of the boat house for a spot of messing about on the river. If you want a quirky venue for anything from a quirky cocktail party to an extra room to meditate in why not also hire our shell house. You can walk down the garden and find it hidden in the trees, or row to it down the lake.

If you want a swimming pool for your stay why not hire the cottages as well as they come with the heated out door pool.
