King John's Barn, a haven of peace and tranquility with outstanding views.
Set on the edge of Langley Farm, a former Royal Hunting Lodge for the Wychwood Forest, now a working stock farm.

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.
