"Thank you Ed and family for showing us that the simple life is best. Who needs technology and interruption when you can kick back and reflect in such a wonderful space. Our two girls have had our uninterrupted attention! We have laughed and played every day. To eat outside and row on the lake can only be described as heavenly! Keep doing what you are doing! We will definitely be back and will share the good word."

"A surprise treat for my birthday. Wow - this place is awesome! We have not felt this relaxed in a long time. The attention to detail throughout the site is just right. The design is fantastic. The accommodations are beautiful, all very individual and spacious. Tara and all the staff have been really friendly and warm. We look forward to the next time!"

"What an amazing way to spend my 18th birthday - living in a tree house over the weekend! It has been truly enchanting and magical living among the animals, waking up to beautiful views and spending quality time around the range all warm and toasty. When we were rowing the boat, the views were really pretty.
What lucky girls you were staying in this tree house! The peace and quiet I found to be very healing in todays busy, busy lifestyle ..... and will certainly visit again when I feel the need to step off the worlds rollercoaster and have a minute to myself."

"Wow! We arrived at Tilia tree house for a mini break as a surprise to celebrate my sons 7th birthday! His face, along with his siblings was priceless when we arrived. This place is just stunning and truly magical! The tree house, the site, the grounds, and amenities are beautiful and we have had an amazing family weekend! Thank you for all the wonderful provisions and the attention to detail - it made our stay just that extra bit special. Marshmallow toasting, star-gazing around the fire pit camp fire, tree climbing, nature walks, boating, story-telling and much more! A fantastic weekend fuelling wonderful family memories! Thank you to everyone."

Hannah & Ian (2018) -
"We have just spent a fabulous weekend with a gorgeous group of ladies. With a fantastic venue - eco-friendly tree houses in acres of beautiful countryside. The converted barn works as a delightful yoga studio, with its underfloor heating. Jeanette and Simon were wonderful hosts - we were totally up for Simon's tree hugging! We are leaving feeling spoiled with a 5* experience."
Chloe (Retreat 2018) -
"Thank you so much for our stay to celebrate my 40th birthday. There were 23 of us and we had the best time! The barn accommodation was just lovely, the facilities were brillinat and the grounds beautiful. We were so well looked after by Jeanette and Simon. We hope to be back in the summer to sample the yurts!"
Alice (2018) -
"A truly unique experience ......the treehouse description doesn't really explain the cosiness of the house in the trees. In winter it has been so warm and welcoming. We stoked the wood burning stove, cooked, drank wine and played board games. Next morning birds greeted us in the tree canopy. Jeanette recommended the beach walk from Holkham Hall to Wells Next To The Sea. It was dusk and we arrived to the lantern parade and fireworks! We would love to be back again."
Nick, Victoria and Elspeth (2017) -
"Wow! What an amazing place! The tree house was just incredible. It far exceeded our expectations and had absolutely everything we could possibly need! The outdoor kitchen was an amazing and we spent a fun evening making friends, making pizza in the pizza oven and huddled around the pit eating toasted marshmallows! We simply couldn't have asked for anymore! Wandering around the grounds and rowing around the lake was just perfect for rest and relaxation! A perfect place to escape the demands of daily life. Thank you West Lexham. Do I have to go now? I might just tie myself to the tree!"
Josie and Rachel (2017) -
"Apologies it has taken us so long to write this email, it really has taken this long to come back to reality after such an incredible wedding weekend at West Lexham! We honestly could not have hoped for a better weekend; we knew the venue was fantastic but experiencing it with all our friends and family just seemed to make it shine even brighter. The help and support from Laura in the run up to it all was indispensable, and we were very grateful for the reassuring presence of Jeanette and Simon over the weekend itself! We have heard nothing but awe and praise from all our guests about the venue and expect that you may get some repeat custom; Nick and I are already planning a return a few years down the line! Huge, heartfelt thank yous again - we will never forget our magical wedding at West Lexham".

"Adolfo and I just got back from our mini honeymoon in Greece and we are still on cloud 9 from the wedding day. It was simply magical, and we have stopped counting how many guests told us they were enchanted by the venue and the special spirit that is everywhere in West Lexham. You did such a wonderful job managing us and our guests and countless suppliers in the run up and we are ever so thankful. I would also like to extend a very special thank you to Simon and Jeanette – they were simply the perfect hosts. From their lovely daughter Mollie looking after the children so warmly, to offering to help themselves, to managing failures on behalf of the extra tents we had booked through another provider, and even making our guests feel that they would solve the situation. Generally, they brought such great spirit and cheer – Adolfo and I are just in awe of the whole team. We miss West Lexham already and we will be sure to make it a very special place for us to return to both as a married couple and hopefully, someday, with little Harrison-Nelte’s in tow."
Alexandra & Adolfo (Wedding 2017) -
"A week has nearly passed since we were getting ready to come to West Lexham to set up for our daughter Hannah and now our son-in-law Mattt’s wedding last Saturday. I would just like to say a very big thank you for making their day and ours perfect. Jeanette & Simon and their staff did everything to make the celebrations go well. Thank you too Simon for letting me pick a few flowers from your beautiful gardens and for the lovely veggies you brought up for all of us to help ourselves too. Everyone is and will be talking about the special weekend for a long time to come and the wonderful photos taken will bring back happy memories".
Brenchleys (Wedding 2017) -

Atkinson (Wedding 2017) -
"We are still on cloud 9 following our wedding - we are still finding it hard to believe we managed to pull off such an epic wedding. We cannot thank you and all the staff at West Lexham enough for all the support to gave to use in the lead up, and during the wedding celebrations".

"My partner and I have stayed in Sunrise tree house for the past 2 nights and it's safe to say we do not want to leave. The staff are very welcoming when you arrive ...and show you the main areas of the site then leave you to it for the rest of your stay unless you need them then they provide you with a contact number. When we arrived the tree house was already warm and cosy for us. We had lots of fun rowing on the lake, making pizza and exploring the area during the day - as well as sitting round the campfire, playing cards and games during the evening! Perfect place to stay during any time of the year. We are definitely coming back! Thank you so much."
"Really lovely place to stay with lots of fun accommodation - bell tents, tree houses etc. Wonderful and friendly staff, and a gorgeous pool. Beautiful countryside, great location, thoroughly recommend."
"Amazing!!! Took my bf for his 40th birthday. I wanted something different, romantic and peaceful. First time we have been away without the children in twenty one years and we loved every minute. Definitely considering bringing the children next year. Well worth the money, such a charming and beautiful place. Thank you so much"
We would just like to say thank you for the lovely time that we had at Quercus tree house. Thank you for kindly upgrading us! We had a fabulous time and thoroughly enjoyed our time away in our tree house. Even though we were a bit noisy! The beds were extremely comfortable and the linen was lovely. I have back and head injuries and it was the first holiday I have had in four years because of a car accident. The cooker was fabulous and efficient and very warm. The facilities and setting is beautiful and we had an absolutely great time away. Thankyou. We will be booking again and recommending you to everyone!"

Just a note to say thank you very much for your help in booking our stay with you this weekend. We were all very impressed with the property and the fabulous grounds.
