The Details...

Once a grain store on a working Norfolk farm, the Great Barn at West Lexham has been lovingly converted to an exceptional standard. There are 10 en suite rooms situated around a central courtyard planted with beautiful flowers and trees. Each room has underfloor heating and a steaming hot shower, sustainably powered by a renewable biomass boiler.

The decor throughout has boutique style with a rustic heart. Within the barn, you'll find a commercial-standard country kitchen with a double-height dining area and doors that lead onto a private garden. The garden has a grassy lawn surrounded by trees and flowers, with your own fire bowl for campfires under the stars. Plenty of deck chairs can be provided on sunny days.

In the lounge area there are 4 huge sofas with a log burning stove at each end, perfect for cosy evenings playing board games. There are bi-folding doors opening onto a large space that is perfect for parties and gatherings.

Surrounded by stunning wildlife and flourishing greenery, West Lexham is a tranquil haven that has a colourful tapestry. Stroll across manicured lawns or through wild, water meadows, before boating on the lake or wild swimming in clear, fresh waters.

If you want to head out in search of a country adventure then this part of Norfolk has something for everyone. Nominated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest, there is an incredible landscape full of rich fauna and flora. Explore the wild woodlands or the manicured grounds, or the rushing river or the pretty ponds. Secluded beaches can also be found nearby, along with pretty, coastal towns and farming villages.
