  • "Absolutely amazing stay."

    Property and surroundings were stunning. We loved discovering the different artwork and the eclectic mix. Also grateful for the soap, shampoo and conditioner that was available, as well as the well stocked kitchen. The Aga was a treat to work with. // For the owners only… One suggestion, for the bathroom at the end of the great hall, maybe a hook to hang a hand towel, or a shelf over the loo.

    Thank you for your kind comments. We are pleased you loved the property and area. Thank you for your suggestions. Best wishes Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "Fabulous property"

  • "A truly memorable stay in this rustic and exquisite property over the christmas with husband and three children, and a couple who came to join us in the last 2 days."

    The children loved the chance to explore the character decor and features of the house with great curiosity. We were welcomed by 3 fires in three of the cosy spaces which also became the centre for for a lot of laughter, games and chatter over the four days. Cooking was a highlight with a solid and reliable AGA cooker which added warmth and character to the kitchen/diner area. So much to do indoors, as well the wistful surroundings of church and large park nearby that we did not venture out much at this time, but did some quick strolls and visits to such places as Flag and Whistle cafe, Tewksbury town beautiful Broadway town and Tower Country Parks. The owners were kind and very responsive to any concerns and queries that we posed, getting back to us in a timely way. Thanking you all again for your generosity.

    Thank you for your feedback. We really appreciate your comments and are so pleased that you had a fantastic stay. Property Owner

  • "Amazing space; I run a yoga retreat and the place although is full of character and furnished with love, it was extremely COLD."

    Even with the logs, we were very very cold. Make sure that at least you take 8 to 9 heaters with you. Apart from the cold, I loved it.

    Thank you for your feedback, it is an ideal space to run a Yoga Retreat, you have so much space at this property. We have passed on your comments to the owner to review and i understand additional heaters and a large supply of logs had been sent over to you during your stay. We do take all feedback on board and this will be reviewed. Property Owner

  • "The Barnett family and friends have had a wonderful 3 days celebrating our parents' 30th wedding anniversary."

    Artisan Hall has such a great wow factor & impressed every member of our part. The weekend basket was such a treat that we thoroughly enjoyed. The boules set & chessboard were in constant use & the exercise mat was even used for some yoga in the early morning sun. The incense sticks in the bathrooms is a lovely touch as are the delightful products in the showers. The sound system was also greatly appreciated & added to our relaxing long weekend. We also took the recommendation to go to 5 North Street in Winchcombe for a special Sunday lunch, which was exquisite. We can't wait to be back.

    Our eyes are still catching some of the wondrous contents and the rooms are beautifully furnished. We have had wonderful weekend and hope to return. We even managed to squeeze in the Lion Inn at Winchcombe (lovely!), Daylesford farm (temptation overload) and the White Hart in Stow although it was difficult to draw ourselves away from the Artisan Hall and a long fire! It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas! Thank you. P.S Special thanks to India & Charlie for getting back to us on the projector screens – kids loved it.

Resting opposite the beautiful church of St Andrews in the quiet village of Toddington, lies this Grade ll listed, unique Cotswold stone dwelling, Artisan Hall, the perfect getaway for entertaining families and groups of friends alike.

Be welcomed into the grand entrance hall and marvel at the high ceilings, complete with an awe-inspiring chandelier and ornate furnishings and accessories, before making your way into the great hall which is the large centrepiece of the property, with an abundance of unique character, including a grand arched ceiling, with wooden beams and chandeliers and exposed Cotswold stone walls, porthole windows, and a quirky hammock taking centre stage.

Here you can relax with your loved ones underneath the Bedouin tent, sunk into the inviting sofas, whilst the large woodburning stove warms the entire room.

For some peace and quiet, head over to the snug that is home to a real burning fire, or into the sitting room that is a bright, dual aspect room with welcoming seating and an Apple TV with Netflix and a DVD player, perfect for a snuggled night in, watching films, as the open fire crackles away in the background.

Look forward to rustling up delicious evening meals in the kitchen, that connects to the breakfast room/orangery, with beautiful stone mullion windows that allow light into the kitchen from the partial glass ceiling, where you can make use of the freestanding units, AGA, and other appliances, as well as a useful connecting pantry with a fridge/freezer and washer/dryer.
