Charney Manor – Oxfordshire
Oxfordshire Conference Rooms – Charney Manor is a stunning 13th Century Manor house in the heart of the Oxfordshire Countryside, owned by the Society of Friends (Quakers), and known as a quiet and safe venue for delegates involved in conflict resolution and international affairs. Charney Manor has two large conference rooms, both upstairs: the Solar in the Manor and the main meeting room in The Barn (accessible by lift).
Large group accommodation is available at Charney Manor: We can accommodate 43 residential guests, 35 in 1 double, 11 twin and 11 single bedrooms. All the rooms are ensuite, except two which have dedicated bathrooms. Nine rooms are in the Manor house itself, ten are in the Vokins building, and four are in the Barn. One single room and one twin room in the Barn, both on the ground floor, are adapted for wheelchair users. The Gilletts, a cottage in the grounds, provides self-catering accommodation for groups of eight in five bedrooms, or additional accommodation for conferences.
Catering Residential groups are fully catered for, with arrangements made for guests with special diets. Every bedroom has facilities for making hot drinks.
You can expect that your stay at Charney Manor will be quiet and peaceful surrounded by beautiful gardens in a village setting.
Charney Manor hosts a programme of events throughout the year which seek to nourish the spirit through silence, deep listening and the invitation to explore issues and themes with both the heart and the mind. We believe there is something in our programme to interest a wide range of spiritual seekers, and we hope that both friends and those interested in the Quaker way will stay with us and benefit from the calm and beauty for such spiritual refreshment.
Also available in the Manor are a library and a sitting room. Our small well-stocked library mainly focuses on Quakerism and contemporary spirituality. Guests are welcome to borrow books during their stay.
As well as the three acres of garden, there are good walks locally and many places of interest nearby, including the Uffington White Horse, Wayland’s Smithy and the Ridgeway, and Kelmscott Manor, the country home of William Morris. The village pub The friendly, family-run Chequers is a short walk from us.
