  • This review is mainly regarding accessibility for wheelchair users at Coughton court. This places was pretty good for wheeling my nana round in a wheelchair. We managed to see the ground floor of the house and then you could watch a DVD about what was on the other floors. We were able to go around the gravel paths (quite hard to push someone on gravel but definitely doable.) we went into the walled garden, orchards and even around the riverside walk! There was very very little we couldn't see with the wheelchair just mainly the other floors in the house. It was a pleasant surprise from most places that have loads of steps! Thanks.
  • A lovely medium to large National Trust property with a historic house and extensive grounds gardens. Like all NT places it's great value for members and a bit pricey otherwise. Great for young children to run around and explore. Pleasant cafe. A glorious way to spend a sunny bank holiday.
  • I was a bit under impressed by Coughton Court. The gardens were closed due to the wind and the house was a bit tired. Biggest disappointment was the the catering side. I ordered the soup which arrived cold and I sent it back; I wasn't the only one doing that. It was mushroom and barley and just looked and tasted awful. There was a big black hair under the piece of bread as well which wasn't even on a plate. Staff had dirty aprons and it was just not a good experience. Recommendation if you go there then take a picnic.
  • Almost the perfect National Trust place to visit, sunny or otherwise. The grounds are just beautiful - not too large, but plenty of walks and areas to explore. Small designated picnic area, but no shortage of spots to set up and enjoy the scenery. The house is simply a delight, and for those who don't mind a few steps, the opportunity to access the top allows magnificent views over the grounds and surrounding countryside.
  • We only recently became Trust members and this was our 4th visit to a property, would have to say that whilst the others were magnificent in their own right, Coughton has that little something extra even the rain showers didn't take the shine from it. Great day out, all of the staff were very helpful and extremely knowledgeable, good parking on site, great food and drinks are there too, extra bonus of an additional 2 Churches to wander around and the Gardens,Riverside walk and lake were very well kept. Would recommend the guided tour which is very informative and the view from the roof is quite stunning. Coughton is almost alive through its history and the link to Guy Fawkes was a surprise. Don't miss going here guys, you'll love it.
