Nestled in 21 acres of lush lands, West Lexham Manor is a retreat centre surrounded by a meandering river, a swimming lake, lazy meadows, woodland, beautiful landscaped gardens, a luxuriant vegetable patch and a clutch of old heritage farm buildings. A unique venue for rural retreats and countryside holidays, it is a work of passion and is crafted out of the heritage building that is the legacy of over a thousand 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. It is 90% run on renewables with solar panels for power and a woodchip boiler for heat.
It is a tranquil retreat centre with large yoga and workshop spaces in their barn and village hall. Their barn and courtyard bedrooms sleep up to 28 people while the village hall and holiday cottages can accommodate up to 24. There are also other accommodation options such as the treehouses and bell tents. To promote relaxation and rejuvenation, they also have massage rooms and garden settings which visitors can use and a conference room which can be used for courses and workshops.
West Lexham Manor is close to rail and coach stops, and it is strongly recommend that visitors come here by public transport rather than driving, as there are plenty of easy links. The nearest train station is Downham Market and trains run from London Kings Cross to Downham Market every hour and every half hour at certain peak times. Taxis are also available from the Downham Market. To get from Stansted Airport you take a train to Ely then change for a train to Downham Market. Cars are available for bookings and this should be done in advance.
