This is close to us and a great place to visit. A very welcoming NT property where you can sit as you tour and soak up the ambience as well as enjoy the lovely gardens,

Very disorganised and not enough staff.Long long wait to use the toilets even longer for coffee and don't even think about getting a burger !!! Staff inside house was lovely but just not enough staff outside .Parking for wheelchair users on field instead of putting them on hard ground and asking people who are able to walk around grounds and...

I asked specific questions and they had no answers except the man doing the gunpowder plot talk seemed to know his stuff.i found the chemise belonging to mary queen of scots interesting... More

An excellent day out. The house is full of fascinating contents, especially the exhibits relating to the family's Catholic history. The garden and grounds are beautiful and boast two churches..

Not told when paying the £20+ for admission that wheelchair access was limited to one ground floor room. After spending ten minutes absorbing everything that room had to offer we had no option but to leave. We do realise that these old houses have to maintain their character and few if any have lifts installed. However such extremely limited access... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Coughton Court. The house was very interesting and had a lived-in feel about it. The connection with the Gunpowder Plot was illuminating, I didn't know there were so many characters involved. The gardens were an added bonus, in particular the various sculptures dotted around. Highly recommended..

Well organised day out, sampling and possibly buying some Cheese & Chutney. In addition, free cooking instruction courtesy of Stratford College, Morris Men on the lawn, Brass Band courtesy of the Bretforton Silver Band, Warwick Boys School Band and the Warwick Brass Quintet. Free Wine Tasting, Real Ales and Ciders and finally what we all strive to see, Ferret Racing!... More

Fantastic visit to Coughton Court, beautiful house and gardens. The National Trust shop was one of the better ones I have been to with lots of gifts for the home, and the restaurant served a wide range of meals (hot & cold) at a reasonable price. (I'm guessing this has fairly recently been refurbished?!). We will definitely return!

We gave our two grandchildren a choice on a national Trust Property to go and they chose Coughton Court. On arriving we chose a noon timed visit giving us about forty minutes for a drink. The house tour was excellent with chairs to sit on in each room. The children aged nine and eleven found mush of interest and also... More

I had a lovely time here. A superb Tudor house steeped in history. A walled garden/veg. garden/bog garden, orchard, riverside walks, water features, loads to see. There is food available, however a picnic is a good idea, as there are many places to sit and soak up the beautiful views. I stayed for about 4hrs. and will return in Autumn...Well... More
