Coughton Court family walk

This easy circular trail is perfect for families. Take the little ones around the woods and retrace your steps, or continue on an optional adventure through a field and a ford.

Total steps: 8

Total steps: 8

Start point

Stableyard, Coughton Court, grid ref: SP083606

Step 1

From the Stableyard cafe, walk past the play area and outbuildings (on the left) to the river bridge.

Step 2

Cross over the River Arrow.

Step 3

Head diagonally across the field to Timm's Grove, the bluebell wood.

Step 4

Now you can return to Coughton Court if you only need a really short walk. For a little longer follow the left hand perimeter of the field until you get to a kissing gate.

Step 5

Go through the kissing gate and then keep to the righ- hand side of the field until the next kissing gate.

Step 6

As you go through the kissing gate you can turn right onto the stone road (Old London Road). This can flood all year round, so be cautious. Alternatively, go through the gate on the other side of the stone road into the next field.

Step 7

Cross the field next to the old oak tree (which should be on your right) and keep to the right-hand side. Look carefully for a kissing gate in the corner of the field. This is sometimes overgrown and hidden.

Step 8

Go through the gate and turn right onto the road. Once you reach the ford, cross the bridge, continue along the road and turn back into Coughton Court. Pass both churches and the house then head back over the bridge into the car park.

End point
