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.

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.
