A unique place to visit

Coughton Court has been the home of the Throckmorton family since 1409.  It holds a unique place in English history with its close connections to the Gunpowder Plot of 1605.

So much to see

Behind the Tudor gatehouse house you will find the courtyard with its fine Elizabethan half-timbering, where a knot garden leads to lawns and fine vistas of the Warwickshire countryside.

So much to do

The house stands in 25 acres of grounds containing some of the most breathtaking gardens in the country.  It was Clare McLaren-Throckmorton's intention to create a garden that complements the beautiful house, and to give it the setting it deserves.  She also wanted to create a wide variety of gardens: formal and informal, traditional and innovative.  Created over the last 15 years, the gardens are now mature and varied and are solely managed by the Throckmorton family.
