Located close to the Welsh border, the village of Saughall is a mixture of a traditional English village with echoes of the iconic Welsh landscape that vibrate across the border.
Just three miles North West of the vivacious and historic Chester city centre, the village offers great transport links for its residents, with a nearby motorway transporting residents from their home to their workplace. Although surrounded by vast farmers’ fields and country lanes, the village itself is compact, with many homes sat along the long stretch of road or on the small, residential streets that surround it. Despite houses being concentrated in one area, Saughall is not short of green spaces, making it a great option for young families.
This quiet and peaceful village is the perfect choice of location for those who enjoy stepping away from the hustle and bustle of the city to enter a world of peaceful tranquillity. With a few essential amenities located nearby, there is little noise to be found in one of the most western parts of our green and pleasant land.
The lifestyle in Saughall is very much what residents would expect from a small village, however, it is the quiet and peaceful life that attracts many to its borders. With only a handful of essential amenities within the village, residents have to travel to the nearby city of Chester if they are looking for a more fulfilling shop.
There are two churches in the village that play a huge part in the community, not only for religious celebrations and worships, but also in terms of local recreation. For new parents, the All Saints Church offers Mum & Tots Group and Praise and Play throughout the week, helping newbies to the area or motherhood make great contacts and friends in the local village. Just along the road is the Saughall Methodist Church, which hosts coffee mornings throughout the month, a great way for the older generation to get out and about meeting new people and enjoying some delicious tea and biscuits.
There are a few traditional pubs in the area, including the Wheatsheaf Inn Stonehouse and the Greyhound Inn, located right in the heart of the village centre, surrounded by residential houses.
The village is home to just one school that is linked with neighbouring church, All Saints Saughall. The Saughall All Saints Church of England Primary School is based on Church Road and serves the majority of children within the area.
As the only school in the area, it is larger than the average primary school, with around two-hundred-and-ninety pupils on roll. The school has been considered a good school by Ofsted, with the report citing a broad and balanced curriculum which helps pupils progress in their learning. The school follows the National Curriculum and therefore, parents can expect their children to learn a mixture of core and foundation subjects, with the school’s deep Christian values underpinning their learning process.
With close links to the local church, parents can expect their children to take part in key Christian festivals such as the Harvest Festival and Easter celebrations. Families are also welcomed to the All Saints Church on Sundays for Family Praise, where families can listen to Bible stories and enjoy some craft work.
