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.

  • Very sweet, with several people working in the garden. But, we were in and out in 15 minutes as it is very small with not a great deal of interest to really stop and look at.

  • What a gorgeous place. It was a nice surprise on our way to somewhere else. This building from the early 1400's is a must see. Book your guided tour of the interior in advance, places fill quickly. The garden was stunning. We watched and spoke with two women who were spinning yarn, amazing knowledge and insight. Only downside, no oarking, but what can you expect from a town that old! Many other Listed buildings in the town as well. Worth a day out for the culture and beauty of this town.
  • A fascinating Historical preservation: a fine example of a Wealthy Merchant's Essex Townhouse, associated with the international trade in textiles. It has all the best features of a National Trust experience, including an attractive garden. It captures a turning point in the fortunes of British and European bilateral trade. Credit to the preparation, hospitality, and presentation by the team of volunteers. Authentic and entertaining. Recommend Booking in advance for your tour slot time as it is popular.
