Must see · Garden · Landmark
Paycocke's House and Gardens are a surviving example of a Tudor merchant's house and garden in Coggeshall, Essex, England. The house was built for Thomas Paycocke, a wealthy cloth merchant in the town. The house was very nearly destroyed in the 19th century, but was rescued and restored by Lord Noel Buxton in the early 20th century, before being handed to the care of the National Trust.
The house has been described as an attractive half-timbered house, notable particularly for its intricate woodwork and carvings.

  • We first visited Paycockes with some American friends many years ago and well remember their gushing comments on "the real old England". We have often driven past but not re-visited until now...  more »
  • Very interesting. Lovely to see a Tudor building, which is still in good condition. The long garden is pretty too and there is a small café, which sells scones, cakes and drinks (no sandwiches). It's well worth a visit if you're in the area and you love history.
  • The staff in this place were wonderful especially the male guide who explain the history. Would be great if there were a few sandwiches to buy. The fridge magnet was expensive at £3.
