Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A beautifully proportioned and extremely private historic family home that comes with its own title of Lord of the Manor of Mythe and Mythe Hook.

Private in setting but in fact, highly accessible, this exceptional family residence boasts great character combined with modern convenience. Grade II* listed, the building is of significant historical importance. The property is unique in many ways, not only for its
architecture but also that it comes with its own title of Lord of the Manor of Mythe and Mythe Hook understood to have been given by King John and conveyed from owner to owner.

Locally it is referred to as the infamous King John's Hunting Lodge however; there has been a structure on the site since Roman times. The first owner on record
is believed to be Queen Matilda, wife of William the Conqueror and subsequently, Tewkesbury Abbey was believed to have a free standing chapel on the site.
The house is beautifully presented and combines architecture from the mediaeval and 16th century with modern day finishes and comforts. The rooms have excellent proportions, the house being arranged over
three levels with the main reception rooms facing south west thus making them wonderfully light.

The property occupies a very private and sheltered plot hiding private colourful gardens arranged predominantly to the front and side, with a south west facing aspect. Comprising lawn and well established borders, the garden offers numerous secluded seating areas and sun traps. A gated driveway leads to a wide parking area, open bay garaging and garden stores. In addition to the house, there are two garden studios.


Occupying an elevated position high above the Severn Vale, The Mythe is a very accessible hamlet situated just north of the market town of Tewkesbury and south of the well patronised village of Twyning. Located almost at the end of a no-through lane, King Johns Castle is set in a private location, back from the lane behind tall electric gates.
