It’s pretty clear that 2021 has been an insane year for everyone but, despite everything, we’ve had some pretty wonderful and exciting moments at West Lexham. With the new year upon us, we thought it would be the perfect time to look back and remind ourselves of the highlights.
The Family Weekender was a big success, with a plethora of wonderful entertainment, food and of course amazing people coming together to create a really special event. It was so lovely to witness everyone having fun and really enjoying themselves, especially as we were blessed with wonderful weather too. It was an event designed with families in mind (obviously!) and we loved every minute of facilitating the memories that were made that weekend!
New Venues and Accommodation Opening
Our six brand new cabins and the Orangery opened in the summer also. This was a massive achievement given all the challenges we faced during the build. They’re now standing proud and provide a cosy, luxury stay for our guests. The Orangery has already been host to several wonderful dinners, yoga classes and team meetings. We can’t wait to see what 2022 has in store for this venue!
The West Lexham Garden Kitchen
2021 was, of course, the birth of our restaurant The Garden Kitchen also. Serving amazing vegetarian and plant-based dishes, designed to nourish the body and soul, its opening is definitely deserving of a spot on our highlight reel! You just can’t beat delicious, comforting food. Plus, it also served pretty incredible coffee too (we were in heaven!).
The West Lexham Kitchen Garden
The Kitchen Garden (not to be confused with the Garden Kitchen!) is now a fully fledged feature of West Lexham. We’ve constructed a second polytunnel, planted and harvested a mountain of great produce and had the pleasure of introducing our guests to biodynamics via our garden tours. Getting to experience the freshest and most organic produce has been a real treat, not just for our guests but also for the team. We have even more exciting things planned for the next year, so you’ll have to be sure to stay in the loop.
Its been a rollercoaster year in more ways than one, but we’re so lucky to have been a part of so many wonderful and exciting things. There’s far more we could mention, but you’d be reading all week! We’re so excited to see what 2022 holds so, make sure you head over to our social media accounts and let us know what moments make your 2021 round up. We’ll even give you bonus points if they include West Lexham!
Wishing you all a very happy New Year!
