About West Lexham

About West Lexham

We have carefully chosen the location, to bring you to a pearl of rural England for inspiration, proximity to London for communication, for creation and exquisite scenery for relaxation.

West Lexham is a unique venue for rural retreats or countryside holidays, 2 hours from London, 75 minutes from Cambridge and 45 minutes from Norwich. It is a work of passion and is crafted out of the heritage building that are the legacy of over 1000 years of farming and stewardship of nature. Set in a protected valley with the UK’s cleanest chalk stream it is verdant and bursting with nature. We have floating water meadows, ancient trees, lakes and formal gardens for you to explore.

West Lexham is about living with a deeper connection to nature, to ourselves and to each other. We look at our environment as ourselves. We are nearly 100% run on renewable energy. Our electricity comes from PV panels, our buildings and water are heated by a biomass boiler powered by locally sourced woodchip. Wherever possible we support the local economy by buying our food and materials locally. We see ourselves as the lucky stewards of this exceptional area of nature and rich heritage. The River Nar flows through our valley, and is the cleanest of the 160 chalk streams in the world. It is designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest with its underwater realm of life and floating water meadows. We use the profits from the business to not only preserve this habitat but to enhance it and the historical buildings around it, to be enjoyed in perpetuity…
