Paycockes House

West Street
Coggeshall
Colchester
Essex
CO6 1NS

This fine half-timbered house is evidence of the wealth generated by the East Anglian wool trade in the 15th and 16th centuries. It contains unusually rich panelling and wood carving. The exterior of the house is richly decorated.

Coggeshall was also famous for its lace, examples of which are displayed inside Paycocke's House.

There is a very attractive cottage garden with lovely displays of lavender from mid June to September.

General Information:

  • Dogs not allowed in house (except guide dogs)
  • Parking at Grange Barn.
