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.

We were impressed by the homely feeling this house gives. We toured the house and ended up sitting in a living room in the great hall listening to a gentleman playing the piano and reading their books. This room was almost perfect albeit a log fire on would have been wonderful, although in the month of July, that would not... More

Living just a stones throw from Holbeache House the final 'shoot out location' of the Gun Powder Plot, it was nice to trace the chase back to Coughton. The house is an integral piece of British history since the 1400's and the fight of the Catholic family's survival, strangely the grounds have both a Catholic and Church of England church!... More

What a stately home ! Not big but continously occupied by the same family for the last 600 years. The most endearing future has to be how tranquil the rooms on view feel, you know, when you walk into a house for the very first time and think " I would be happy living here".Staff are extremely helpful and knowledgeable,...

Visited last week on a break to the Cotswolds. Lots of parking at this property. Entry is through a modern reception building where tickets can be purchased. Entry to the house is limited so visitors are given timed entry tickets which must be adhered to. Once inside the house you can spend as much time as you like inside. As... More

Not only were we able to visit the interesting house -for which you can see umpteen posts- we also wanted to do a walk. At this NT property, there are laminated maps for you to follow. We did the 8 mile walk -probably a bit longer as we did a detour- and it was really lovely to explore the local... More

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
