Overview
More
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.

For those of you who love your history, this house has seen it all. The Throckmortons have lived here for 600 years and were and remain of the Catholic Faith. This led them into conflict with the State during the Tudors, Stuarts and the Commonwealth...More

Beautiful house and gardens. Tower view amazing. You could see forever! I arrived at the end of a long hot day, and missed the car park entrance. Seems the N. Trust are not allowed to put up larger signage. Lots of history and very informative...More

It was here that the Throckmorton family lived who were prominent Roman Catholics and thus were involved in the Gunpowder Plot.There is a very carefully concealed priest hole in one room and a lovely view from the tower.Delightful and well worth a visit..
