Overview
More
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.

I enjoyed a fairly brief visit as I was passing through the area. I overshot the entrance as the signs are not very distinct. I got a timed house entry ticket and explored the fairly small part of the house which is open to the...More

Coughton (pronounced Coat On) Court is a fine Tudor house, where Gunpowder Plotters did some plotting, now run by the National Trust. The house is rambling and fascinating, the grounds idyllic even on a busy summer day. There is a pathetic second-hand book shop in...More

The volunteers in the house were knowledgeable, helpful and informative. A small proportion didn't know when to stop talking. It was galling to be approaching one room at about 3.15 pm which although open, because of a volunteer shortage was being closed to visitors. Similarly...More

We found the interiors interesting but limited. Paintings all seem to be portraits. Due to inclement weather we did not venture out into the gardens but I understand they are lovely in summer.
