About West Lexham

Since 2012 we have been celebrating New Year in the idyllic setting of West Lexham Manor in Norfolk.

A thriving eco country manor estate with a wonderfully bohemian vibe, set around a lake with beautiful gardens, woodland and only 30 minutes drive from the sea.

Join us for a new year celebration of love, life and friendship. Come on your own or with your friends, either way you're guaranteed to have a great time and begin 2025 with a clear mind, an open heart and a rejuvenated spirit!

Retreat programme

West Lexham offers plenty of space for a gathering of 40 yogis with two wonderful yoga teachers, Sunita Devi and Amy McDonald leading the retreat and two separate yoga spaces, a stunning converted barn with underfloor heating and a charming village hall with wooden floors and an open fire.

Arrival time on Sunday 29 December 2024 is from 4pm and the first yoga class will be at 5pm. The retreat will finish after brunch on New Year's day.

Each morning there will be a yoga class followed by a delicious breakfast with free time and lunch to follow. We will then meet again in the afternoon for another yoga practice. For each practice you will be able to choose between a more challenging dynamic practice or something more gentle and restorative, as you feel. Each evening there will be dinner followed by a candlelit meditation or sound bath.

For New Year's Eve there will be a delicious celebratory dinner, celebrations and mulled wine around the bonfire.

Things to do

The retreat will be an opportunity for you to be in company with old friends or making new. If you prefer it will offer the chance to have some quiet time, space and reflection - it's your choice, alongside a morning and evening programme of yoga, pranayama, meditation and celebration.

West Lexham is perfectly situated for long country walks or you can take a short drive to the sweeping sandy beaches of Holkham and Brancaster for some sea air.

The property is set around a lake, perfect for a walk or a New Year's morning dip. Massage treatments will be on offer throughout the retreat. Or you can simply curl up in front of the fire with a good book.

West Lexham offers unique, beautiful and very comfortable accommodation with a mix of single, twin and double rooms, charming cabins and amazing treehouses.

There are luxurious en-suite rooms set around a courtyard adjacent to the yoga barn. All have underfloor heating and huge windows which flood the rooms with natural light. They combine rustic charm with funky modern twists.

Charming and cosy traditional flint cottages are also part of the estate. All cottage rooms offer luxury chic interiors with twin or double bedrooms, most are en-suite, 2 rooms share a bathroom.

There are also stunning fully heated luxury treehouses of varying sizes and magical wooden cabins set around the lake. Some en suite and others sharing the high quality garden washroom facilities closeby.

Client Reviews

I'd just like to say what a fabulous experience the New Year retreat at West Lexham was. It was brilliantly organised, the location was excellent, and the facilities were really good...the food was fantastic, the company was great, and the New Year's Eve bonfire was a great way to welcome in the New Year. Thank you so much, namaste.
This was my second New Year retreat in West Lexham. Loved it, lovely people, great food, excellent yoga, relaxing, challenging and inspiring. I just love the place, you feel like you are at home, loved curling up with a book in the hall, watching the fire in the wood burner, and I love the fact that there is under-floor heating in the yoga room in the barn! Can't fault any of it.
Just want to say a HUGE thanks for the New Year retreat in Norfolk - what an awesome few days. Such a great balance of activity and free time - and just no pressure. The food was OUTSTANDING! I have come home refreshed and ready to start the year in such a positive frame of mind and my body is so much more relaxed. Thank you so much. I'll be back and spreading the word!
