May half-term at Coughton Court

Heron at Coughton Court, Warwickshire

Pop along to Coughton Court this May half-term and discover this beautiful property.

The early summer months are the perfect time to get the whole family together and go on an adventure over to Coughton’s ancient woodland where the Treason Trail is waiting to be explored. The trail is based on the events of the Gunpowder Plot and children can grab a hobby horse from the Welcome Centre and gallop across the fields, pretend to be royalty on the oversized throne, take their photo with our Guy Fawkes wanted posters and make up a tune on our wooden xylophone.

Whilst you’re over in the woodland get out your 50 Things booklet and start ticking off some of those activities, such as hunting for bugs and making a trail with sticks. Don’t forget to pause on the bridge over the River Arrow and play a couple of rounds of Pooh Sticks with a willing opponent.

Pick up some of our Explorer Cards and discover some of the sights and sounds of Coughton outside in the gardens and grounds. Take a stroll down the Gentleman’s Walk and see what birds you can spot on Westminster Pool – will you spot our Heron? 

What a wonderful place to learn.

If it’s a nice sunny day try an ice-cream made by a local company, Bennetts and relax while the children play with the games on the lawn and in the activity shed.


If you fancy going on a walk, pick up one of our walk cards from Visitor Reception, and explore Kinwarton Dovecote and Timm’s Grove or pick up our Curious Coughton walk and find out more about the site and its place in history.
