Owner description: 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.

A really interesting little gem and a great Cafe/Restaurant. Sunday Lunch is very good. Great literary festival and occasional events in the gardens which are always well run and well attended

I love this place - history about the Gunpowder Plot, an interesting house with a great roof top view, a very pleasant garden and lovely riverside walk and grounds.
There are usually some talks given about the history of the place and these are well worth a 10 minute listen.
