One of England’s finest and most complete Jacobean houses.
Chastleton House is a Jacobean country house situated near Moreton-in-Marsh, Oxfordshire, England (grid reference SP2429). It has been owned by the National Trust since 1991.
Chastleton House was built during the opening years of the 17th century for the wealthy wool merchant, Walter Jones. The house is built of Cotswold stone, round a courtyard.
The inside of the house is complex and quite bewildering as there are a great many rooms, the foremost of which are the Great Hall, with its ornately carved wooden screen, and the first floor’s Great Chamber, with its ornate panelling and plaster ceiling. Most of the furniture is contemporary with the house being in situ since its completion.
