smallish, neat merchant's house with interesting historical background. Lovely gardens, tea shop, set in a pretty Essex village with a fine parish Church to boot.

Stunning exterior, wonderful carving, interesting to see lime wash being renewed however there was, unfortunately,a rather underwhelming sense about the place.

This is a lovely property to visit. The front of this medieval merchant's house, built in 1509 by Thomas Paycocke, has an interesting exterior, while the interior of the house is furnished with period furniture. There are carved fireplace mantles, carved ceilings, and lots of information about the highly valued white cloth that was made in Coggeshall at that time. There is also a lovely long garden in back of the house. The people who run the house are very nice and helpful and the very friendly guides in several of the rooms will answer any questions you might have...they know a lot, so ask away. You can also walk from this house to the Great Barn (impressive in its size, restored in 1985) as well as to St. Nicholas Chapel (wasn't open when we were there), both structures at one time part of a medieval abbey in Coggeshall. The town of Coggeshall is also fun to wander through...quite a few old buildings, a nice church, and several places to eat.…
