Coughton Court is an imposing Tudor house set in beautiful gardens with a collection of Catholic treasures

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.

There is still more to enjoy away from the house and gardens.  For the little ones a play area with a wealth of trails and activities to keep them busy and for those seeking something a little less energetic then a stroll through our ancient woodland, to be found awash with bluebells in the spring, or a visit to the restaurant for a relaxing cream tea.

Coughton Court is still the home of the Throckmorton family. They faced persecution for their Catholic faith and were willing to risk everything - from political intrigue to the infamous Gunpowder Plot.

A wealth of stories and characters still fill this home, where clues to its turbulent history can still be found amongst the fresh flowers and family portraits.

From March 2015 explore these stories around the house or on one of our taster tours on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday mornings.
