King John House



To stay in this extraordinary, historic, Grade II* house is a unique experience. Deeply atmospheric, the principal rooms exude a tremendous sense of history and contain many fine examples of period features. Set in superb grounds on the Rushmore Estate, on the edge of the charming village of Tollard Royal, King John’s House is perfect for a special celebration be it a ‘milestone’ birthday, important wedding anniversary or a large family reunion.

The medieval entrance hall provides a wonderful reception area and guests will be able to dine in style in the Tudor paneled dining room. The Rushmore Estate lies within the larger area known as the Cranborne Chase, once a royal hunting ground, and perhaps one of the best examples of a typical ‘English’ landscape anywhere in the country. The higher ground affords wonderful views as far as the Isle of Wight and there are superb walks in the area including a number of ‘droves’ – green lanes where once oxen and cattle were herded to market.
