We spent a nice couple of hours at Paycockes. Smaller than some National Trust properties but just as interesting. As usual, the National Trust guides were very helpful and knowledgeable. Tea in the quaint tea room was nice. Such friendly staff.

Typically English house and garden. We enjoyed meeting the wool spinners who were doing displays in the garden when we visited.
