French Fields

Bold Forest Park, Cheshire


Welcome to French Fields, an exclusive development of 18 plots providing the opportunity to build a designer home in a remarkable country park location. The site is nestled in the Bold Forest Park, between the Cheshire village of Burtonwood and the St Helens village of Clockface, surrounded by green fields and open space.

French Fields was created by the landowner, turned enabling developer Mark Ward - in association with BuildStore, Custom Build Homes, and Potton. 

The site was originally home to Mark's family business, a printing factory, but he recognised the potential of development and he had the desire to facilitate the dreams of self builders to design and build their own homes. 

The development has been an unrivaled success. It was mentioned in the Government White Paper: Fixing a broken housing market and has been the flagship site for the emerging custom build sector. 


All plots are now either SOLD or RESERVED.
