About Edmund Colville

Three generations of the Colville family live at West Lexham. We live in such a beautiful place that we wanted to share it! For the last few years we have been converting the barn and outbuildings so that we can have groups of people to stay here and enjoy the special nature that we have here. We mainly hire for courses, especially yoga, but love to have groups who will appreciate what we have done, in any capacity.

Edmund Colville purchased this barn in 1997

Why Edmund Colville chose Breckland

It is a unique design that is super funky and modern, but with the character that you can only get in buildings that are hundreds of years old. The whole place has been immaculately designed. Edmund Colville used to be a garden and architectural designer, but wanted to design the ultimate rural idyll for himself, his family and a lucky few others who came across it.

What makes this barn unique

There is unique nature here, with the River Nar flowing through the valley. It is an SSSI, a Site of Special Scientific Interest due to the rare orchids and abundant nature. There is a magical feel here. Please come and enjoy it.
