Charming 700-year-old manor house in the Gloucestershire countryside

The quaint and charming Charingworth Manor is a 14th-century manor house situated among bucolic fields and sheep-dotted meadows in the Cotswold Hills. The property is surrounded by 54 acres of lovely green grounds and its setting on a slight hill provides beautiful views of the surrounding Gloucestershire countryside. The house itself is an impressive sight, with its centuries-old Cotswold stones, thatched roof, and creeping ivy, and the green grounds dotted with charming corners to relax in are the frosting on the cake. A lavender flanked path at the back of the property leads to gorgeous views over fields and farmland and the grounds bloom with flowers peppered among the grassy lawns.

Like the house itself, the interiors give the feeling of stepping back in time. Certain parts of the manor have a medieval vibe, with low-slung ceilings, arched doorways, and dim lighting. Details such as stone floors and exposed wood ceiling beams lend a rustic charm to the traditional decor that includes wooden antique pieces, oil paintings, and elegant armchairs. The elegant drawing room is full of plaid armchairs and a comfortable couch in a medley of cream and crimson colors. Floral curtains frame a window overlooking green lawns and trees and a large oil painting resides over the marble fireplace. The lounge is equally atmospheric and cozy, with a low ceiling with exposed dark wood beams and a stone fireplace that imbues the space with rustic countryside charm. There are plenty of armchairs and couches to relax in and board games are on hand.

A serene rural retreat popular with Londoners looking to get away from the bustle of the big city for a weekend, the property also attracts travelers exploring the charming villages of the Cotswolds and nearby Stratford-upon-Avon. With several meeting rooms and extensive grounds, the Charingworth Manor is also a popular venue for weddings, reunions, and other events.

Rooms

Elegant rooms and suites are traditionally furnished, many with antique pieces and fireplaces

There are a variety of rooms available at the Charingworth Manor, some of which are located in the old main house and some in a newer annex. Rooms are elegant, traditionally furnished, and quite spacious in size. Decor leans towards simplicity and soft colors, with light walls and wooden furniture. Large, comfortable beds are topped with crisp white linens, patterned bedspreads, and decorative pillows. Some of the rooms have more of a cozy countryside cottage charm, with exposed wood beams in the ceiling, fireplaces, and antique pieces such as vintage wooden writing desks and dressers. Spacious Deluxe Rooms have small living room areas with comfy couches and suites have separate living rooms with fireplaces and flat-screen TVs.

All rooms are equipped with plasma flat-screen TVs and coffeemakers with free coffee, hot cocoa, and a wide selection of teas, though no minibars or mini-fridges. Free cookies and bottled water are a nice touch. Many rooms overlook the green lawns and gardens, but note that some have less thrilling views of roofs and chimneys. Some rooms have private terraces and direct garden access.

Bathrooms are modern and clean, clad in cream-colored tiles with shower/tub combos, walk-in rainfall showers, or lovely soaking tubs, and L’Occitane toiletries. The spacious and airy bathroom in the Cresswell Deluxe Room is a treat, with a claw-footed soaking tub in front of windows overlooking treetops and green lawns, and dark wood beams in the sloped ceiling.

Features

There is a small, cozy bar filled with red leather couches adjoining the restaurant.

The manor hosts weddings, conferences, and various events, and has several event spaces available, including the sun lit Upper Conservatory that looks out over the grounds, as well as the Lower Conservatory that opens up into the gardens.
