Fine buildings and beautiful countryside brings people to this part of Cheshire, all year round.

Gawsworth is a pretty village that lies just three miles south of Macclesfield and has a number of historic buildings within its boundaries.

Gawsworth Old Hall is a Grade I listed timber framed country house that was built between 1480 and 1600, while Gawsworth New Hall, as the name suggests, was built a century later in the early 1700’s and is Grade II listed Gawsworth Old Rectory is from a similar period as the Old Hall, has a timber framed design and is also Grade I listed.

St James’ Church is probably the most recognisable sight in Gawsworth, the 15th century Anglican church dominates the skyline of the Cheshire village and provides a pretty scene with the Wall Pool in the foreground.

The surrounding area is a growing attraction for those looking for a day out in the open spaces of Cheshire. Head south from Gawsworth and you can take some beautiful Cheshire countryside en route to the quiet village of North Rode; to the east, you will reach the edge of the Cheshire Peak District at Wildboarclough.

If you choose to head north towards Macclesfield and you will come across the Danes Moss Nature Reserve, a 33 acre Site of Special Scientific Interest managed by the Cheshire Wildlife Trust. The largest lowland raised bog in Cheshire is home to more than a dozen species of dragonfly and damselfly and countless butterflies.

If you prefer the outdoors but without the muddy boots, the inner garden of Gawsworth Old Hall is around 30 acres and the surrounding parkland is around 600 acres.
