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.

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.

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.

Things to see and do in Oxfordshire

Alice in Wonderland Shop
Alice in Wonderland Shop

The Alice's Shop in Oxford is the original Alice in Wonderland Shop. This was where the real Alice, Alice Liddell, used to buy her barley sugar sweets 140 years ago. The shop is now a treasure trove of Alice in Wonderland gifts and memorabilia.


Bill Spectres Oxford Ghost Trails
Bill Spectres Oxford Ghost Trails

Historically informative yet hugely entertaining, it's the perfect way to soak up the atmosphere of this famous city, leaving you with a deliciously scary tingle running down your spine. Intrepid ghost hunters should meet outside the glass fronted gift shop of Oxford Castle Unlocked. Bill Spectre (distinctively dressed as a Victorian undertaker) will depart from that place at 6.30pm every Friday and Saturday evening. For a shorter walk, meet outside the Tourist Information Centre, 15-16 Broad Street at 7pm.


Blenheim Palace
Blenheim Palace

Blenheim Palace is home to the 11th Duke and Duchess of Marlborough and the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill. Set in 2100 acres of beautiful parkland landscaped by ‘Capability’ Brown, the magnificent Palace is surrounded by sweeping lawns, award-winning formal gardens and the great Lake, offering a unforgettable day out for all.


Cotswold Wildlife Park

Oxford University Museum of Natural History
Oxford University Museum of Natural History

The Oxford University Museum of Natural History houses the University's scientific collections of zoological, entomological and geological specimens. The Museum itself is a Grade 1 listed building, renowned for its spectacular neo-Gothic architecture. Among its most famous features are the Oxfordshire dinosaurs, the dodo, and the swifts in the tower.


Rousham House
Rousham House

Rousham and its landscape garden should be a place of pilgrimage for students of the work of William Kent (1685-1748). Rousham represents the first phase of English landscape design and remains almost as Kent left it, one of the few gardens of this date to have escaped alteration, with many features which delighted eighteenth century visitors to Rousham still in situ, such as the ponds and cascades in Venus’s Vale, the Cold Bath, and seven arched Praeneste, Townsend’s Building, the Temple of the Mill, and, on the skyline, a sham ruin known as the ‘Eyecatcher’.


The Ashmolean
The Ashmolean

The Ashmolean is a University Museum and a Department of the University, which owns the collections and employs the museum staff. The Museum has very close links with the faculties, and the colleges, and museum staff undertake a great deal of University teaching and research. The Museum's Collections are also an important teaching and research resource for scholars and students from other institutions both in this country and abroad.


The Eagle and Child Pub
The Eagle and Child Pub

The Eagle and Child is a pub in St Giles', Oxford, England which is owned by St. John's College, Oxford. The pub had been part of an endowment belonging to University College since the 17th century. It has associations with the Inklings writers' group which included J. R. R. Tolkien and C. S. Lewis.


Uffington White Horse
Uffington White Horse

The internationally-renowned Uffington White Horse can be seen for miles away leaping across the head of a dramatic dry valley in the Ridgeway escarpment. But this is only part of the unique complex of ancient remains that are found at White Horse Hill and beyond, spreading out across the high chalk downland. The stylised form of the White Horse, an icon of the English landscape, has been a subject of discussion since the 17th century. Written records date back to the 12th century but do not give proof of the Horse's age or why it was there.


University of Oxford
University of Oxford

The University of Oxford, located in the English city of Oxford, is the oldest surviving university in the English-speaking world and is regarded as one of the world's leading academic institutions.
