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.
