The Kings Arms is situated in the heart of Charlton Horethorne, a picture postcard traditional Somerset village, close to the Dorset border (falling within the jurisdiction of the South Somerset District Council). Charlton Hawthorne first appeared in records around 950AD and is now a popular village with approximately 300 dwellings. The village has a thriving local shop, primary school and numerous small businesses, as well as an ever-increasing number of groups and clubs organising a wide range of activities. The village is centred around the Millennium Green, which provides a tranquil oasis for locals and visitors.
There is also a village hall, which has recently been renovated and improved. Charlton Horethorne is situated only 5 miles north east of Sherborne, 5 miles south west of Wincanton and only a stone’s throw from the A303 trunk road, linking the south and south west of England. The village also lies on the Monarch’s Way, long distance footpath. The Kings Arms has an array of attractions nearby including the famous National Trust Gardens at Stourhead, the Jurassic Coast and the Fleet Air Arm Museum amongst many others.
Set in an elegant, Edwardian building, The Kings Arms has an abundance of traditional charm and period features. The property was completely overhauled and refurbished approximately 15 years ago and now provides 10 very stylish, boutique, en-suite Letting Rooms, all beautifully decorated, with luxury fabrics and period furniture. On the ground floor is a welcoming Bar and Restaurant with a cosy Snug which leads through to an impressive Dining/Function Room overlooking the outside Terrace and Beer Garden. The property has an excellent commercial catering Kitchen, together with Ancillary Rooms and 'Back of House' space. The Kings Arms also benefits from a totally separate, self-contained 2 bed Owner’s Cottage situated to the rear of the property with rural views over the valley. The Kings Arms is a very successful business, which has been established for many years and really needs to be seen to be appreciated.
