About Coughton Lodge

Coughton Lodge dates back to the 16th Century and is a beautiful historic large holiday cottage that provides self catering accommodation for up to twenty two guests (plus cot) in ten en-suite bedrooms. It provides excellent facilities including an outdoor heated swimming pool and grass tennis court and is located in a rural village within Warwickshire, close to Stratford upon Avon (the birthplace of Shakespeare), Warwick (with its beautiful castle), Evesham and The Cotswolds.

Sitting in the grounds of the owners house, Coughton Lodge is adjacent to Coughton Court, a National Trust run country home which has been in the hands of the Throckmorton family for some six hundred years now.

Coughton Lodge was formerly the office of the estate manager for Coughton Court and prior to that would also have been used as barns for housing animals and storing equipment. Beautifully converted, Coughton Lodge now provides comfortable and welcoming self-catering accommodation which still retains many wonderful original features including the original beams in some of the rooms.

The grounds to Coughton House and Coughton Lodge extend to approximately eight acres with two acres of formal gardens and a six acre paddock to the rear. A stream meanders along the bottom of the paddock as too does one of the many public footpaths in the area (part of The Arden Way). The footpath provides a lovely walk as it makes its way through a picturesque valley to the next village where you will find the famous pub, The Green Dragon for refreshments. Or you can take a stroll across the paddock and over the bridge across the stream to The Throckmorton Arms, a pub/restaurant just two hundred yards up the road from The Lodge.

Coughton is ideally centrally placed in Central England and within easy reach of many attractions including Stratford-on-Avon, Worcester, Warwick (with its stunning castle) and the nearby market town of Evesham. The small ancient Roman market town of Alcester is less than three miles away and offers a great choice of shops for provisions as well as pubs and restaurants. Alcester also has its very own court leet (the last remaining town in the country to still have one!) whose members dressed in robes, are often seen walking around Alcester partaking in their important duties (beer tasting for one!). The town hosts a number of functions throughout the year including food and folk festivals and street markets.

The Cotswolds are within easy driving distance for a day trip out. With its wonderful honey coloured architecture and pretty little villages and historic towns dotted amongst the rolling hills, there are plenty of places to visit including the village of Broadway, Bourton on the Water (known as 'the little Venice of the Cotswolds'), historic Stow on the Wold and picturesque Chipping Campden. Other attractions within the local area include: Ragley Hall, Charlecote Park, Hidecote Manor, Cadbury World for the younger ones, Hatton Country World, Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford-upon Avon, Blenheim with its beautiful palace, Drayton Manor Park and as previously mentioned, Warwick Castle and Coughton Court directly opposite Coughton Lodge.

For those who enjoy outdoor activities, the local area offers plenty of opportunities including lovely walks, cycling, golf, horse riding and fishing. There is also horse racing at Warwick, Worcester, Stratford and Cheltenham with its famous Gold Cup meet.
