If you’re touring the beautiful Cotswolds alfresco dining is one of the pleasures of this delightful area of England. Many pubs, cafes and restaurants throughout the Cotswolds offer outdoor dining and drinking, with many places enjoying far reaching views over the countryside. One place where the views are almost as enjoyable as the food is the 14th century Charingworth Manor, a luxury hotel set in over 50 acres of grounds. You can enjoy afternoon tea outdoors here, as well as a full meal or a drink. Locally sourced food is the focus, and the menu features classic British dishes, and an excellent wine list. The hotel also has four outdoor dining pods, combining the outdoor experience with the convenience of indoor dining. Chipping Camden, with its tea rooms and antique shops is a short drive away, and the hotel is a great base to explore the Cotswolds.
