Paycockes is steeped in history, with authentic restoration of many original features. The story behind the original owners and subsequent owners is painstakingly preserved for all to enjoy. The gardens are a delight to stroll round and appreciate the diversity of an english country garden....enjoy

Had a lovely time at Paycocks this year , wonderful cakes and tea. Then a stroll around the garden looking at the plants and vegetables. The building itself has a great history and is very interesting.

If you visit the quaint old village of Coggeshall, then you must visit this ancient house. It is crammed full of interesting artifacts, documents & other such unusual things which relate to this village & the surrounding area. This place is well worth a visit.
