This vast property is still occupied by the Throckmorton family, so only small parts of the house were open to the public. The weather was dry (thank goodness, as there's a fair bit of land to explore!), and a little overcast so it was really pleasant.
Here's the view from the front
and the back
Here's the first floor dining room, laid out for a Jubilee lunch, this room has views out over the land at the front of the property. Yes the table at the back right, up against the panelled wall, is covered in solid silver tableware!
Here's a great view of the eaves of one medieval wing, home to lots and lots of aptly named house sparrows! The image might look a bit fuzzy, the glass was very old!
Loved this avenue of trees, one of a pair
Found these sleeping rams in the kitchen gardens, they were spark out! Not sure of the breed.
More brown sheep in the extensive grounds, I'm pretty sure they aren't Jacobs as they are black and white, these were chocolate brown
At Coughton they have two family churches, a Catholic one, and a C of E one, here's the Catholic church of St Peter, St Paul and St Elizabeth
Here's the C of E church of St Peter
It was a lovely day out, thoroughly enjoyable and very relaxing. There were great facilities, lovely NT shop, cafe, and the car park, which was grassed, had several picnic tables too, always a bonus when penny pinching!
We will be going back!
