Set on the edge of Langley Farm, a former Royal Hunting Lodge for the Wychwood Forest, now a working stock farm. Although guests can visit our farm by arrangement we are very close to Adam Henson's Farm and of course the Cotswold Wildlife Park.
King John, who built a 'Palace' at Langley by enlarging the already present building, was first recorded to be there in 1204 using Langley as an annexe to the palace at Woodstock where of course you can visit Blenheim Palace.
The Barn takes its name from the King John's Oak which was said to be a rallying point for huntsmen in the Wychwood Forest and is marked on many of the old maps. Surrounded by fields, with only a few cottages nearby you can really experience the rural idyll.
King Johns Barn has been awarded SILVER (meaning Good basic environmental practice) by The Green Tourism Business Scheme (GTBS), which is the largest and most successful environmental accreditation body for tourism businesses in Europe.
