A quintessential English cottage in a delightful setting


Chester 4 miles Liverpool 30 miles Manchester 45 miles

Woodcutters Cottage is situated within a Conservation Area and occupies an enviable position a few miles from the centre of Chester, adjoining open countryside.

Chester is served by excellent state and private day schools including King's and Queen's, Abbeygate College, and the Firs. Chester is home to the oldest Race Course in the country, which provides an extensive programme of horse racing and other events including polo. There is a thriving restaurant and cafe culture in the city and many other leisure amenities, including first class golfing, tennis and other recreational sports.

The A55 Expressway and M53 motorway are 2 and 3 miles respectively permitting easy access west along the North Wales coast and east towards the motorway network and for commuting to Liverpool, Manchester and Warrington. For travel further afield there is a 2 hour rail service from Chester to London Euston and international airports in both Liverpool and Manchester.


Woodcutters Cottage is a charming Grade II listed property which previously formed part of the nearby Grosvenor Estate. It has a rich history, originally being a smallholding and later a carpenters cottage. It was sold by the Estate in the mid 20th century along with the two neighbouring properties, Orchard House and Green Paddocks, which share the spectacular tree lined drive. In recent years the property has undergone extensive renovation with a substantial single storey extension erected to the rear. The work has been done sympathetically and cleverly blends the traditional character with contemporary influences and provides a wonderful home well suited to modern living.

It is set well back from the road approached via an avenue and a private drive with a timber gated entrance. The house sits well within its grounds and there is a circular driveway beside a timber garage carport and store.

The front door is set within the original section of the house and within the front elevation. It opens into a dining hall with a cast iron range and stairs to the first floor. It is open to a comfortable family room with a more formal sitting room beyond. The kitchen opens onto a large paved terrace proving a near seamless link with outside and enjoys spectacular views across the gardens with a backdrop off deciduous woodland. Designed by Johnson and Johnson it has an excellent range of storage units with a central island and various integrated appliances. Off the kitchen is utility room and WC.

A back hall provides a link to a further extension housing two bedrooms and a family bathroom with a bath and shower.

On the first floor is a master bedroom, a dressing area, a guest bedroom, bathroom and a 5th bedroom currently used as a study.


The extensive gardens are well maintained and include handsome mature trees and a wide variety of shrubs and plants in formal and informal plantings. There are lovely vistas and seating areas and a tranquil pond. The backdrop of the neighbours woodland offers further structure and there is a delightful outlook to the east and west across the adjacent farmland. It is a very special setting which enhances the attractive property.
