Fantastic home, brilliant location

5 of 5
It is a beautiful property with everything you could need and more. Clean and tidy on arrival with fresh bed linen and even the extra beds were made up for us. Helpful information provided for appliances and the local area prior to arrival and any queries we had during our stay answered speedily by the host. Very close to beautiful forest walking and cycling routes and also fast WiFi and a large DVD collection for home entertainment. We had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend to others.

Wonderful Place

5 of 5
The accommodation and setting at West Lexham is absolutely amazing. The 3 cottages are beautifully equipped, clean, warm and comfortable. The grounds are well maintained and are free to roam around. The staff are knowledgeable, friendly and can not do enough for their guests. Can not recommend highly enough.
