Paycocke's House & Gardens

25 West Street,


Paycocke's is a National Trust Property built 1509/10. It is an attractive half-timbered merchant's house with uncommonly intricate carved woodwork and panelling. Built for Thomas Paycocke it shows off the wealth generated by the cloth trade in Coggeshall and in Essex. Saved from demolition by the local community in 19th century the house was restored to its former glory by Lord Noel Buxton in the early 20th century. Come and enjoy the atmosphere of this beautiful house and stroll around the lovely arts and crafts garden.
