Christmas at Coughton
It is a few days before Christmas. Throckmorton family members have started to arrive. Wellies by the door, fur coats and hats on the coat stand. Suitcases and trunks stacked up. Unopened Christmas cards on the side. Christmas tree with the names of Mrs T’s children and grandchildren hanging from it. Come along and find out what happens next.
The house is decorated in a traditional style with Christmas trees and decorations. Lady Lillian's room is transformed into Father Christmas's office and at weekends children can visit him for a small charge between 10am - 3.15pm. Come along and enjoy all the sounds and smell of Christmas. Weekdays are the best time to come as we are quieter then. To pre-book weekend timed tickets to the house please visit our events page.
Coach House Shop
The Coach House Shop will be selling a variety of seasonal gifts and treats.
" “Children were not allowed into the Saloon until Christmas Day. The room was already decorated and presents under the 16 ft. tree, furniture had been moved and the table tennis table had been set up.”"
It wouldn't be Christmas without a Christmas Lunch
Come and join us in the surrounding of our historic Tudor Kitchen for a traditional Christmas lunch of farm assured turkey, or nut roast with homemade gravy and all the trimmings. There will also be freshly baked mince pies and mulled wine for those looking for something lighter.
On the weekends of Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 November and Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 December join us for our Christmas Market between 10am and 4pm. Festive stalls in the stableyard at Coughton selling food, drink, and gifts; perfect to fill up your cupboards with treats for the festive season and to purchase gifts for your loved ones.
Fun for Families
Over both weekends bring the little ones to meet Father Christmas who will be waiting, in traditional green robes, to receive visitors in his winter sitting room.
In our Bluebell wood, we are creating a very special children’s trail called Woolly Woods. The team at Coughton have been busy knitting and crocheting a variety of friendly woodland creatures to accompany our trail through the woodland.
