  • Wonderful house and gardens. Learn about the history of the Gunpowder Plot and all the associated people. Volunteers very friendly and knowledgeable. Great restaurant with good choice of meals. Loads of parking. Gets very busy at times.
  • I think the National Trust have been over cooking the whole "Coughton Court was involved in the Gun Powder Plot" thing but overall not too bad for an hour or two of exploring. I really liked the view from the tower from the main staircase and the Brass direction piece that was made by my uncle Richard Cresswell. Oh and the cake was really good too, I'd recommend the Lime and Coconut sponge and my girlfriend had the Walnut.
  • One of the best National Trust locations in the country. The best time to visit is during June when the Rose garden is in full bloom. Extensive Tudor heritage with links to the Gun Powder Plot. Perfect for those looking for a historical experience or simply a family day out 10/10!
  • Lovely place full of history and intrigue with beautiful gardens. Not as much to do with families as other national trust properties but they do have good family events and the bluebell walk is great in spring.
  • Stunning House and Gardens. We are seasoned NT visitors, and this is one of the best yet! Fabulous wsy ti welcome October, will be back in spring 17!
