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.

An interesting Elizabethan house but far too dark to enjoy. The gardens were very good with an excellent walled garden. Good tea room and well stocked shop.

A lovely National Trust property, with something for everyone, young and old alike. Mixed garden styles, formal, informal, walled, kitchen and orchard. A lake and a river. There is not a great deal of house to see as it is still inhabited by the Throckmorton...More
