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.

Beautiful gardens, arrived to late to get a ticket for the house, but no matter, give us an excuse to go back again. Plenty to see, gardens are well kept. Walks by the river on a hot sunny day were refreshing. Food not over priced...More

Visited over the Easter weekend. Got there a minute before opening at 11am. Because of the flooding they closed most of the Car Parks, for safety. We managed to get parked. They started turning people away at 11:05am Coughton Court is a pleasent enough property....More

We arrived here after a superb visit to Upton House near Banbury and took the first entrance sign on our right which wasn't a good idea and is probably not recommended due to the narrow lane etc. We parked up on the long grassed car...More

Two adults and a 7 week old baby visited here in late April, the gardens had a lovely display of daffodils, tulips, bluebells, wild garlic and apple blossom. A beautiful maintained garden with lovely paths which are perfect for a slim 3 wheel pushchair. We...More

We visited here on Saturday which coincided with the Daffodil Society's show in a marquee in the grounds. This led to higher than average queue volumes both to get into the property and in the small cafe at lunch time. The staff were friendly and...More

Visited Coughton today and wish we hadn't bothered. The queue of cars to get in was long due to a big event (Daffodil Show) but the car park staff were very efficient and we were soon parked. So far so good. As soon as we...More
