About Us and our location in the Cotswolds


Our names all come from King John, who built  'King John's Palace' at Langley.  He was first recorded to be here in 1204 using it as an annexe to the world famous Blenheim Palace at Woodstock. 

King John's Barn, The Gallery and Oak Tree Cottage, takes its name from the old 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.

We are proud to be farmers here at Langley Farm which was used as a  Royal Hunting Lodge for the Wychwood Forest.  Now though as a real life working stock farm, you can expect to see sheep and cattle, lots of wildlife including barn owls hunting along the hedgerows, brown hares boxing in spring, and of course there will be some occasional rural smells.  

Guests can visit our farm by arrangement but we are very close to Adam Henson's Farm and the Cotswold Wildlife Park.  If you want to visit and take your picture at Diddly Squat this is just across the valley.

To book King John's Palace (sleeps up to 12) please contact Vicky direct with your details and dates for prices and further information or follow this Airbnb link.
