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.

A beautiful place to visit, the house has interesting features, the gardens and grounds are very nice to walk around in the sunshine. If you have the opportunity, listen to the brief history given by the volunteers periodically throughout the day.

We debated whether or not to renew our membership of the National Trust this year, but believed as there were so many properties in our area we’d give it another go. So we picked Coughton Court from the map and had planned to spend a...More

A lovely place for an Easter Egg hunt. Well organised and easy to follow. Despite having a power cut, staff were fabulous keeping everything going and even cold and hot food and drinks were still available and delicious. Well worth going to.
