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.

This charming old building contains fine furniture and is well maintained by the National Trust. There was a wonderful display of daffodils mounted by the Daffodil Society during my visit the third week-end in April.

Make sure you join a gun powder plot story talk which we found very interesting. Extensive grounds are great to walk around with something for all ages.

Rather limited number of rooms open to the public but it was worth the effort to climb the spiral staircase to the roof for the views. For us the best features were the extensive gardens and countryside walks. The gardens are clearly a labour of...More
