Artisan Hall - a house that sleeps 8 guests in 4 bedrooms
Welcome to Artisan Hall, brought to you exclusively by Character Cottages, local specialists in stylish Cotswold holiday rentals.
Grade II listed Artisan Hall is a truly unique Cotswold stone property, peacefully located at the end of a lane, opposite the beautiful church of St Andrew's, in the village of Toddington. The hall is the largest part of what was originally the stable block for the nearby Toddington Manor, a very imposing, grade I listed manor house, built in the 19th century by Charles Hanbury-Tracy, 1st Baron Sudeley, whose marble family tombs can be seen in the church. Toddington Manor is now owned by Damien Hirst, the renowned artist, who is restoring it to use as a gallery for his works. The village of Toddington is peacefully located, in the heart of the beautiful Cotswold countryside, just four miles from Winchcombe, six miles from Broadway and 11 miles from Stow-on-the-Wold, making Artisan Hall well placed for exploring the surrounding countryside or visiting the many beautiful towns and villages of the Cotswolds.

Artisan Hall has many unique character features, with the centrepiece of the property undoubtedly being the large grand hall, which was once the village hall. The owner has furnished this Cotswold stone walled room in an interesting, eclectic style, including a Bedouin tent, free-standing hammock and a large wood-burning stove in the hall. There are many other character features throughout the property, including stone mullion windows, wooden and flagstone floors, oak beams and two further real fires. The unique character of the hall is complemented by its modern facilities, including wireless internet access, a flatscreen TV and a large projector screen TV.
The hall sleeps a maximum of eight people, in four bedrooms, with two bathrooms (one en-suite). There is a lovely, enclosed garden in front of the hall, overlooking the beautiful local church and off-street parking is available for a number of cars. Artisan Hall is the perfect venue for friends or families looking for a unique property, in a stunning setting.
Booking and payment
Character Cottages is a marketing agency and we do not own or manage any of the cottages listed on our website. Bookings made via us form a legal agreement directly between you and the property owner.
For bookings commencing more than 10 weeks in advance, a 30% non-refundable deposit is required to confirm the booking. The balance payment is then due 10 weeks prior to arrival.
All payments are made subject to the cancellation policy set out in the standard Booking Conditions.
A security deposit of £250 is payable, which is returned after the letting period, subject to an inspection of the property. For the avoidance of doubt, guests are requested to leave the property in a reasonable condition, consistent with the property's appearance upon arrival. In the event that the owners, or their appointed housekeepers, have to spend additional time tidying up after your departure, then the cost of this extra time may be deducted from your security deposit. The security deposit is payable prior to arrival at the property, via a bank transfer or a valid debit or credit card.
The maximum occupancy of the property, including its grounds, is eight guests, at any point during your stay. Unauthorised over occupancy is a breach of our terms and conditions and may result in the cancellation of your booking and additional charges. Please consult us prior to booking if you wish to discuss the possibility of having more than eight guests at the property.
Infants who sleep in a cot do not count towards the occupancy figure, however, due to space restrictions, the occupancy figure may only be exceeded by up to two additional infants.
Regrettably, pets are not accepted.

Accessibility, health and safety
This is an old, Grade II listed property and has many character features, including a slightly steep staircase, with a turn in it and no bannister, some low doors, and two floors, which could pose difficulty to guests with limited mobility, or carrying babies, both in terms of their general movement and their ability to quickly exit the house in the event of an emergency.

No smoking is permitted throughout the property.
Hen and Stag Parties
Hen and Stag Parties are not permitted.
In order to provide you with as much detail of our properties as possible, we sometimes use wide angle photography, which can make certain rooms, or spaces, appear larger than they actually are. Wherever possible, we try to include a floorplan, with detailed dimensions of rooms and areas. If you have any queries regarding the size of any rooms or spaces, please do not hesitate to contact us.
