Coughton Court has a fascinating History following the historical background of the Throckmorton family including their problems during the Reformation as a staunch Roman Catholic family and there invilvement with those who organised the "Gunpowder Plot." A very good history lesson for children.

This place was involved in the Gunpowder Plot! A Catholic family, and still is, hid priests from the king’s men. Lots to discover. Nice gardens too. Mass was said in the church until recently. A worthwhile visit to an interesting estate.

Nice accessible place with really interesting history. Very popular with local schoolvisits and groups especially at meal times so be careful to choose your visiting times.I visited as part off a NT Cotswolds tour and this was an added bonus.

Arrived at 2.15 pm on Sunday 2nd December only to be told there were no tickets to the House left.Surely for people who don't book on line tickets should be available. What a wasted journey!

We had pre booked a visit and when we arrived nobody knew about us. The house was poorly decorated for Christmas, very little festive music and people on the stalls showed little Christmas spirit
