Coughton Court

Coughton Court is brimming with history as its origins date back to the early 15th century when it is believed a medieval house was built on the site. Today visitors delight at the authentic Tudor house which has virtually remained unchanged since the 16th century.

The house, now a National Trust property, is home to the Throckmortons, an ancient Catholic family, who have lived here for nearly six centuries. The family were involved in the Gunpowder Plot of 1605 and became leaders in Catholic emancipation in the 19th century. During times of religious persecution, the house was a Catholic place of refuge.  

The gardens at Coughton Court are of special significance. First developed in 1991, they have now reached a high degree of maturity and are recognised as being amongst the best in England. 

The centrepiece of this 25-acre garden is the famous walled garden, which includes the Rose Labyrinth, the first British Garden to be given an award of Garden Excellence by the World Federations of Rose Societies. There’s also a bog garden, formal lawns, vegetable garden, orchard, riverside walks, and a delightful courtyard.

Coughton Court’s gardens, designed by Christina Williams daughter of Clare McLaren-Throckmorton, the present owner of Coughton Court, have been described by the RHS as “breath-taking”.
