Howard’s House seems built into the very landscape it inhabits. Indeed, this traditional stone building has been at the heart of the unspoilt Wiltshire village of Teffont for many centuries.
Originally built in 1623, it has seen many functions, but has always been a central part of this ancient village.
It became the dower house of the estate, and as such formed an integral part of Mayne family life throughout several centuries. The Mayne family crest is clearly visible in the hall, and original the stone plaques of Charles I and the Lion of England hint at previous affiliations.
