About The Manor

Discover Charney Manor...

Charney Manor is an idyllic and peaceful retreat set in the Oxfordshire countryside. Some parts of the manor house date back to the thirteenth century, and it is regarded as a haven of tranquillity where people from across the country can come for reflection, renewal and relaxation. With its refurbished and comfortable rooms, tempting meals and delightful grounds, Charney Manor provides a warm welcome to its guests throughout the year. The manor house has a range of facilities and is available for conferences, group retreats and training events. These can either be for a single day visit or can be spread over several days. The manor itself has the ability to sleep 35 residents comfortably. For larger groups, we can extend our accommodation to include the Gillett’s cottage, this will increase our Guest accommodation to sleep 43 guests in total. All groups will be catered for by special arrangement.
