Description: Coughton Court has been home to the Throckmorton family for 600 years...
Coughton Court has been home to the Throckmorton family for 600 years, this finest of Tudor houses stands testament to a family's courage in maintaining their beliefs. From a position of high favour to one of fear and oppression post-Reformation, the Throckmortons were leaders in a dangerous age, helping to bring about Catholic emancipation in the 19th century. Explore this story of fascinating personalities through the 'family album' of portraits and Catholic treasures around the house. Coughton is still very much a family home with an intimate feel: the Throckmorton family live here, managing the stunning gardens which they have created.

Another place of historical interest, within a few miles of our homes, very fortunate, as this is a delightful Estate to visit, particularly at Bluebell time, as they open their woodland to the public, and it is truly a spectacle. There is a Ford, very nearby, Coughton Ford, all the locals have fond memories of this scenic place, which many... More

We only went in the grounds and to the cafe. Somewhat strange entry arrangements which I think hold things up and cause a queue. If people want more info on entry they should find out off to the side. We walked into Alcester from the house where we had lunch at the Turks Head which can be recommended

We often visit Coughton Court as we live nearby and always enjoy the house and the lovely gardens. Great food in the restaurant and a very nice shop and lots of plants to buy.

Coughton Court has a fabulous variety of gardens and a network of walks. We always visit the marvellous bluebell woods which now have a circular walk around the perimeter. The bog garden has developed into a nice mature garden andthe walled garden improves every year. The cafe and restaurant are both good. Do visit if you are in the area... More

Coughton Court has a fascinating history, not least because it is still lived-in by a member of the Throckmorton family. The gardens are beautifully kept and the tulip displays can be wonderful - although this year they were disappointing. The bluebells in Timm's Grove were prolific and richly coloured, the best display I have seen this year. The café has... More

We recently visited Coughton Court after joining the National Trust. It was a lovely day out and steeped in history. The only disadvantage with going early in the year, was that we didn't get to appreciate the gardens which I am sure will be lovely when in full bloom. Our talk by a lovely lady about the history of the... More

Fantastic day out. Coughton Court has been lived in by the same family for over 600 years. Steeped in history, from the Catholic troubles, to the gunpowder plot, hidden priest holes, the death cloak of Mary, Queen of Scots, intrigue and mystery. Lovely grounds and garden. Ample refreshment area. Good parking. Well worth a trip out.
