We have visited Charingworth Manor many times but I have to say that there have been some recent improvements that have really added to the experience. Firstly, the grounds are absolutely beautiful now and whoever is doing the design and maintenance are to be applauded. After all this hot weather the lawns are still looking green and enticing rather than parched, and the flower beds are a delight. Well done for attention to detail! Nice to see the lavender paths leading away to the terraced view were humming with bees. People appeared to be thoroughly enjoying the tennis courts which look like they have been recently updated and there is now an outdoor chess set those requring less energetic pursuits. The menu in the restaurant has been simplified and we had a very nice entrecote and fries followed by a generous plate of cheese at no further supplement. I have to say that the asparagus starter with poached egg and hollandaise sauce was immaculate. Breakfast was also good as the waitress and waiters now offer more than one rasher of bacon or egg if you do not take the Full English option. I had seen negative reviews where people were unhappy at the small portions if they chose just one or two items from the breakfast menu but this is no longer the case. They were also at pains to offer alternative options if people fancied something different - like baked beans etc.
This time we stayed in the Corbett and it's a charming room with a triple aspect and a limited view over the hills. It's in the manor itself and has a really nice feel to it. Very clean and very comfortable. The bed slants downwards towards the head a little bit though which we think is because of the uneven floorboards. Nevertheless perfectly comfortable. I really enjoyed our stay here again and if you can pick a time when it's quiet there is nowhere like it for relaxing. Alas our final evening was somewhat spoiled by a loud family argument (adults not children) which made it difficult for us to hear eachother. But the hotel can't do anything about that!! A pity as otherwise it's so peaceful.
