  • "Fantastic property in lovely location."

    Very attentive Owners who provided an excellent service both before our stay and during. Would thoroughly recommend. We stayed with our children in their 20s and grandchildren ranging from 1 to 8. Property was ideal for all ages and was close to the Zoo, Chester and lots of great places to eat. Will certainly be visiting again.

  • "We’ve been a couple of times and found Godscroft Hall to be very clean, comfortable, and perfectly sized for meeting up with friends and family."

    The House itself is amazing the kitchen, bathroom and shower was excellent. For the price for one week, this is a bargain. Perfectly situated 5 mins drive from Frodsham high street where there are newsagents, supermarkets, restaurants, pubs and a great bakery. We are looking forward to staying here again!

  • "We had a very enjoyable stay at Godscroft Hall."

    Very spacious rooms, kitchen well equipped with plenty of glasses, cutlery, pans, utensils. Ideal size for 2 families. Owners accommodated changes to travel plans due to the recent storms and sent information about local road closures etc to ensure ‘check in’ was as smooth as possible. Couldn’t fault the property or service provided and would stay again.

  • "Godscroft Hall is halfway between where we live in Scotland and our friends from Hampshire."

    It provided an ideal place for us to catch up and relax. Our 6 year old loved exploring the property, especially the "secret stairs" The owner was exceptionally attentive and communicated directly with us, prior, during and after our stay. There were zero issues, but it felt obvious that had there been then solutions would have been forthcoming in good order. We take this type of trip quite regularly and will definitely consider this property for any future ones.. Cannot recommend highly enough.

  • "We had a lovely stay, it's a lovely property."

    Just a few issues, the master had a wardrobe and drawers which was great, but the other rooms lacked space for clothes and towels. The only other issue was the section of the grounds that is not safe for children, and I'm grateful there is a wall around it, but to not be able to leave the children in the garden is the reason I wouldn't return. All in all lovely property, lots of tips and a guide to settle you in. Also left a vanity bag with some expensive makeup - unfortunately, the owners couldn't find it.

    Dear Mrs. Asuman. Thank you for your review. There is a spacious wardrobe/drawers in each bedroom, and door hooks for hanging robes/towels. We also have an enormous airing cupboard in the main bathroom and another in the West Wing Bedroom for drying towels. With regard to the garden safety. We can assure you that the garden is completely enclosed and safe for children. We would never advise leaving children of any age in the grounds/garden without parental/adult supervision. We have a section in our Information Pack which emphasises this, and also outdoor signage. I contacted you several times during your stay to ensure you were all happy, and non of these issues were mentioned. If you had, I could have reassured you at the time of your stay. You sent me a text message two weeks after your departure saying you may have left a makeup bag with expensive makeup. We found various items on your departure as per my private email (Medicines, saline, plasters, half used bathroom items) which were disposed of. If I had found anything of value I would have certainly contacted you immediately. With best wishes to your and your family. Property Owner

    Our 5 little granddaughters really enjoyed the hall’s obvious character and style as did the adults. The secure and beautiful grounds were also great for the children. The glorious weather also contributed to our wonderful holiday. Our hostess and family could not have been more helpful throughout our two week stay. We would all love to return to Godscroft in the future. Sandra and Ed

    The owners were always available if needed and checked in with us to make sure that all was well from time to time. It is situated on a quiet country lane just outside Frodsham and was a great place to explore the area - we covered the whole of the Wirral, North Wales, Chester and over to Liverpool whilst we were there. Highly recommended and would be happy to return int he future.

    The house was cleaned to a high standard the beds were comfortable. It was a great house for our get together. Frodsham was 10 minutes in a car. The local taxi was reliable in picking us up and taking us back to Godscroft Hall. We had a lovely day out in Frodsham. The weather was brilliant so we spent a lot of our time in the beautiful garden relaxing. I would recommend Godscroft Hall for a relaxing break with family and friends

  • "This property was perfect for us!"

    Our party consisted of 2 families, 4 adults and 4 children. The hall was spacious and we loved the fact the kids had their own lounge. It was spotlessly clean and so warm and welcoming, and the welcome package consisting of fresh eggs, bread, wine and sweeties was a really lovely touch. We enjoyed them all!! We especially enjoyed the real fire and the super comfy beds!! We will definitely be back!

    Everything (including the welcome selection of goodies left for us) was first class and the Hall is extremely comfortable and spacious. The owners are friendly but not conspicuous. The property is handy for visits to Chester, Liverpool and the North wales coast; Frodsham is an interesting place and a leisurely 20 minute walk if you do not want to use the car (good rail service). Overall a very relaxing stay and we would not hesitate to recommend this property.

    I went to celebrate the new year with friends and it was perfect. Large rooms and grounds (the photos don’t do Godscroft justice - it really is stunning). Liz was a huge help pre and during our stay. She is a fantastic host and goes out of her way to make guests feel welcome e.g prepping the log fire for arrival. Godscroft Hall is an ideal getaway with the Netherton Hall pub a short walk away and conviently located between Frosham and Helsby - meaning all amenities are close by. I would certainly reccomend Godscroft Hall to my family and friends. It was an ideal place to welcome in the New Year and have a get away with friends. Thank you Liz - we’re so very grateful!

    Very elegant, sensitively furnished and decorated with lots of interesting objects which give it a very authentic feel. We loved it. Impressive, but we felt so at home at the same time. It was spotless on arrival, the Warbies (very friendly and helpful owners) had left some lights on which was very welcoming on a dark winter evening, and some lovely flowers in the kitchen. Everything you could need for a self catering holiday could be found in the kitchen, brilliant. A beautiful setting, yet so close to local amenities and also some great tourist locations. Do go to Chester Zoo if you're staying here, it's brilliant. We went out, we stayed in. Either way, the Hall was the perfect venue. We would highly recommend the Hall for a break of any type, I can't see how anyone could not be other than delighted with it.

The property

An 18C Georgian Country Farmhouse on the outskirts of Frodsham, North Cheshire.

A town which enjoys a weekly Thursday market along Main Street, with its specialist shops, popular pubs and wine bars.

This historic character farmhouse is located in open countryside between Frodsham Hill and Helsby Hill, and a short walk from Frodsham Marshes and the Mersey Estuary, which attracts many people for its world renowned bird watching.

Godscroft Hall stands on the site of a medieval water mill.

The remains of the mill pond dam is still in evidence.

The first mention of a water mill on the site dates from 1303.

The mill was still in use in 1844.

Godscroft Hall has been owned by The Warburton Family, who have farmed the surrounding land for four generations.

All the family members live nearby.

The entrance of the property leads into the large Dining Hall.

The interior comprises rooms with character high ceilings or exposed oak beams.

The drawing room is a lovely place to return to after a day’s outing; comfy sofas sit amidst traditional furnishings, open fire and a front-facing window welcomes in the natural light.

For a cosier feel, enjoy a quiet family evening in the Snug, playing board games, watching TV, reading and chilling out.

Follow the grand staircase up to the spacious master bedroom suite, passing the small library area on the top landing.

The second family bedroom is just off the grand staircase and comprises king size bed with two singles. Further along the inner landing you will find a spacious third bedroom comprising a king size bed.

The family bathroom is adjacent. All bedrooms are beautifully presented yet are attuned to the Hall’s authentic feel.

Follow the back stairs down to the spacious well equipped kitchen and pantry area.

There is also a downstairs cloakroom and storage area.

Surrounded by farmland and a farm conservation area within a semi rural location, it is five minutes from Frodsham town centre, and is a remarkable place to visit, bringing guests a holiday to remember any time of year.

Just outside the Bears Paw pub in the centre of Frodsham marks the start of the Sandstone Trail, which stretches for 34 miles past nearby Delamere Forest and on into Whitchurch, in Shropshire.

The River Weaver offers towpath walks, which allow you to visit Dutton Locks, plus the famous Anderton Boat Lift further on.

For the more enthusiastic walker, the North Cheshire Way stretches for 70 miles from the Wirral to the Peak District.

The city of Chester is also accessible, a 20 minute drive away.

Frodsham railway station is approx 1 mile away.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
