Kelsall is a medium-sized agricultural/commuter village and civil parish in the unitary authority of Cheshire West and Chester and the ceremonial county of Cheshire, England. It is located around east of Chester, west of Northwich and north west of Tarporley. The village is situated on Kelsall Hill, a part of the Mid-Cheshire Ridge, the broken line of sandstone hills that divide the west Cheshire Plain from its eastern counterpart. The ridge includes other hills including Peckforton, Beeston, Frodsham and Helsby.

At the 2001 Census the population of Kelsall civil parish was 2,520. The total population of the Kelsall local government ward, which also includes the village of Ashton Hayes, was recorded as 3,439.

The village contains two churches, one primary school, a community centre, a doctors' surgery, a chemist, a local store, a butchers shop, four public houses—The Boot*, The Farmers Arms, The Lord Binning (previously The Morris Dancer) and The Royal Oak (previously The Oak)—a hotel (Willington Hall Hotel*) and a farm shop (Willington Fruit Farm Shop*, a family-run business established over 50 years ago). Establishments marked with an asterisk are technically in neighbouring Willington.

The village also hosts the annual Chester Folk Festival every May. The £3.8m, two-mile A54 bypass opened in October 1986.
