Paycocke's House and Garden reviews
Historical,informative and a great visit......Thankyou for a pleasant visit especially my son taking part in the archery. more »
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.
