“Small but interesting”

Paycocke's House and Garden
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 August 2014 via mobile

Parking is a nightmare here so suggest get a combined ticket with Grange Barn ten minutes round the corner and park at the barn for free - only £1 extra to see the barn.

The house is small but packed with information and a pleasant enthusiastic guide to explain about how the structure developed.

Small neat garden - this is a town house so do not expect Stately Home features!

Borderline value for £5.

One of the best (small) National Trust properties I've been to, Paycocke's is charming, full of interesting history and staffed by delightful volunteers who really made our visit a pleasure. The garden is also lovely, not showy but in keeping with the house and the plants for sale great quality and value. Will definitely go again.

I had seen the building before but never had the opportunity to go in.
It is one of the smaller National Trust properties but well documented and very interesting to visit. The wood panelling was spectacular and the various items on show were described well. There were some staircases and one is well marked as being steep with an alternative shown.
When we were ready to leave the rain poured down again and so we went to the coffee room and enjoyed a slice of cake and a drink.
The staff were all very friendly and helpful and in reception they had plenty of knowledge of the history of this house.

This small National Trust property, tucked away in the delightful small town of Coggeshall, is worth a visit if you're in the area. The actual visit to the house takes very little time, but the gardens are delightful and we were able to linger over a very welcome cup of tea and admire the peace of the place from the small courtyard area. If you aren't a member of the National Trust, I'm not convinced that it's worth paying £5 for such a small property, unless you view the admission fee as a donation to a very worthwhile charity.

One of the National Trust`s small properties, nonetheless very interesting and well presented. On our visit there were no helpers on hand to ask, but there was plenty of information available in each of the rooms. There is small café in the courtyard for drinks and snacks. Parking is a little tricky if you unlucky and are unable to park in the street. There is a car park in the centre of Coggeshall, a short walk away. I felt the garden needed rather more TLC than it was getting. House not suitable for visitors with mobility problems.
