Overview

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.

We had a wonderful day here lovely walks, the bluebell wood is stunning. Visited the house quite a bit to see and impressive. Picnic areas all around the welled gardens are lovely and a visit to the church. Will be visiting again.

Didn't visit the house this time, we wanted to wonder around the gardens. The walled garden was a mass of summer colour with plenty of benches to sit and admire the flowers. Lovely walk along the river, well worth a visit on a fine day.

This is a fabulous house and garden. It is of great interest historically as it has priest holes for Roman catholic priests to hide in after Henry 8th became head of the church of England. The Catholics where arrested if they were caught having a...More

Visited as a couple to this lovely and homely property, set in beautifully manicured gardens complete with lake. Firstly, the house is relatively small compared to other mansion houses in the UK. However, smaller it maybe but personal it certainly is. Fascinating the house may...More

The Court is very interesting and the stewards are proactive and enthusiastic. They certainly have very good knowledge of the house, its contents and the lives of the people who owned it. The gardens, especially the walled garden with the delightful herbaceous borders and the...More
