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.

Visited on a busy weekend. Got to see all the house and gardens which are very informative and pretty. Cafe was too busy to go in so went to a nearby pub instead. Great value for money. Not open mon-wed.

Visited with my husband, I don't usually like the trip around the house, but this one is great. Steeped in history, gunpowder plot and the family who still live in the house. Volunteers were great with information. Nice walk around the gardens and surrounding area....More
