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.

Hallowe'en and Gunpowder

Join us this half term and discover spooky stories within our historic walls. Our outdoor trail promises ghoulish goings on and the whole family can learn about Coughton's links to the Gunpowder Plot.
