Gawsworth Old Rectory is a house in the village of Gawsworth, Cheshire, England. It is recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade I listed building. The authors of the Buildings of England series express the opinion that it is "an exceptionally fine timber-framed house".
The house was built as a rectory in about 1470, or in the late 16th century, and a north wing was added in 1872. The house is timber-framed, and it retains its hall open to the roof. Much of the timber framing is close studded and the roof is of plain tiles. It is described as "one of the best preserved medium-sized houses of the period in Cheshire, particularly valuable for the survival of the open hall". It is now a private house.
