Very busy place and has so much to offer! Lovely house and grounds and several walks. So much to do there. We will be back soon. You need to spend at least 3 hours there.

Alcester has an unspoilt high street with a couple of very acceptable cafes & pubs. Excellent for a pre/post visit to Coughton Court
