Step through the property’s ancient oak door and you’ll find yourself in a beautiful medieval hall with a huge open fireplace and lovely flagged floor – an impressive welcome to a historic home, if ever there was one. Next you’ll find a wonderful wood-panelled dining room and a large well-equipped kitchen where you’ll find everything you need to cook up a fabulous feast for your party. An inner hallway leads to a connecting door to the property’s garden-view annexe, which has a large lounge area, kitchen and two en-suite bedrooms – the perfect place for those members of your party who enjoy a little privacy. Back in the main house, head up the wide oak staircase to the first-floor landing where you’ll enter into a beautiful drawing room with a wonderful open fireplace and a large window overlooking the garden below. Next you’ll find four further bedrooms, one of which boasts exquisite Tudor panelling and a decorative fireplace. A second narrow staircase leads up to the second floor where you’ll find a further two lovely bedrooms. Step outside this wondrous house and you’ll discover a pretty Japanese Pavilion, a romantic retreat with its own bedroom, shower room, sauna and beautiful views of the extensive grounds, which are dotted with ornamental ponds. Treat yourself to a sauna in the summer pavilion, arrange to have your very own hot tub on site or dine alfresco on a summer’s evening.

Lovely old house in a beautiful village with a pub! The house was very well appointed with log fires and plenty of wood. Splendid walks from the house , a golf course nearby and Shaftesbury and Salisbury very close for visits. Thoroughly recommend it and we would go back again. If you go in the winter take some extra winter woollies!

King John's House is an amazing place for a large family gathering. Full of historic atmosphere with a wealth of architectural features that transport the occupants back to another time. Despite being hundreds of years old the house is cosy and comfortable with period furniture but with exceptionally comfy beds :) The kitchen is well equipped and cRead morean easily cater for the needs of 18 diners. The grounds are beautifully maintained and a real delight to wander in. All in all a perfect place :) Hide
