Coughton Court private wing
Visit the private North Wing of Coughton Court, home to the Throckmorton family for more than 600 years.
Alcester, Warwickshire, B49 5JA
- Mostly wheelchair accessible
Coughton Court stands in 25 acres of grounds containing some of the most beautiful gardens in the country.
The name Coughton (pronounce “Coat-un”) suggests a settlement or farm known for the hunting of woodcock or game birds.
It is believed that there was a medieval house on the site when John de Throckmorton arrived in 1409 to marry into the de Spiney family. Since that time, Coughton Court has been home to the Throckmortons, one of the UK’s oldest Catholic families.
Go on a tour of the private North Wing of Coughton Court, the family’s private home, which is not normally open to the public. Then explore the fine, award-winning gardens, brought back to life by Clare McLaren Throckmorton and her daughter Christina Williams, providing the ancient house the setting it deserves.
