Located in Warwickshire, the Coughton Court is an English Tudor country house. Embedded in history, Coughton Court is a century’s old country house that is situated on the main road between Studley and Alcester. The main attraction is the centuries-old gatehouse that was built in 1536. Wildlife is not on a large-scale in the estate except for the usual Badger, Water Vole, the Common Kestrel and deer.

Today it has been in the ownership of the National Trust. While the large estate is a beauty of its own, close by is the Spernal Estate.  Spernal is a small remote village on the bank of the small River Arrow. The river passes by both the Coughton Court and Spernal Estate. The small estate’s biggest attraction is the St. Leonards church.  It is a small stone building that was rebuilt in 1844.
