Paycocke's

At one point this morning it went so dark you needed the lights on and the rain hammered down!

But after lunch it looked cheerful so off to Paycocke's the home of wool merchant Thomas Paycocke built around 1500.











The garden is one I could be at home in. Lots of nice places to sit and read a book.
















I've never been in the tea room before.


first time I've been offered a choice of milk!! We had Victoria Sponge (a bit soggy bottomed) and a rather nice Coffee & Walnut cake.

The heavens opened on the way home!

There's nothing worse than a soggy bottom! A beautiful house and garden.
