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 last visited in March and wanted to see the gardens in summer bloom, we weren't disappointed. The walled garden is amass of blooms and the bog garden is full of gigantic gunneras. A pleasure to walk around, top marks to the gardeners!

I chose to go here because the wheelchair access looked so good in the gardens, but a lot of the paths turned out to be gravel. Plenty of disabled parking spaces but all on grass. Nice cafe, good scones.

If you are interested in the Tudor era, or just love a great garden visit, this is a great place. Plenty of advice on hand to learn about the gunpowder plot, right through to the abdication of Edward VIII.
