Newest Review: ... if it's still open (never take any notice!). Right by this building is the younger children's play area it has loads of bits to play in although unfortunately for the amount of children that can be there at times there aren't enough swings! On the field near this building and opposite the car park there is often events going on, dog shows, cars, kite festivals etc. From the play area you ... more

Combe as been an old favourite of Coventrians and surrounding area for years and years! I can remember going as a child with the old boating lake and deer in the bit near the back of the house! those were the days! Well where do I start, it's changed almost beyond recognition but there are still bits that are just the same! The main part of the hotel was the original abbey it has now been brought back to life and looks stunning as you drive down the entrance road towards it - you can imagine back in the good old days how it must have been coming down that road in a horse and carriage - anyway I've got carried away! As you come down the main ... Read the complete review

Coombe Abbey Country Park is located on the eastern edge of Coventry. It has been open to the public since 1966, after it was purchased by Coventry City Council. The main landmark of the park is a 12th Century cistercian abbey, which is where the park gets its name. The abbey has now been converted into a hotel. The country park itself is set over 500 acres with land use ranging from open fields and woodland to a large 1km long lake. There are constructed footpaths which hug the fringe of the park, taking visitors through woodland and along the lake. There is a small wooden hide at the western edge of the park which overlooks a small woodland clearing and over ... Read the complete review

I had the wonderful plesure of staying at the Coombe Abbey hotel during a business trip 3 years ago, I was tasked with manning a stand for my employer at a conference at the University of Warwick just outside Coventry and had to stay over night for a few days. I discovered that my manager had booked this hotel the week before the trip and was a little surprised that he hadnt booked anything closer or more convenient, at the time I was very annoyed as it dawned on me I would have to rely on taxis to get me around during the 3 days I was away for (I dont drive - yet) The second my taxi pulled up to the gates outside the estate and made its way down ...

Coombe Abbey Country Park is in Binley, around 5 miles from Coventry. It is easily accessable you can get a bus from Coventry or rugby and it takes around 20 mins from Rugby on the bus. It stops outside the park and is hourly. Driving is easy there is plenty of parking and the parking costs £2.50 (good value for a family day out). There is no enterence costs to get into coombe abbey, although occasionally they close off one of the fields and charge entrance for special events. There is a hotel at Coombe Abbey and it is outstanding, you feel like you have gone back in time when you stay there! I have done a seperate review on the hotel. Coombe Abbey ...

Coventry has a bit of a bad reputation as a grey, concrete-based, industrial city without much colour or prettiness to boast of. But this is not necessarily true, and nothing proves this more than a trip to Coombe Abbey Country Park, which is just a few miles east of Coventry and boasts 450 beautiful acres of woodland, grassland, lakes and gardens. The park is open daily from 7.30am until dusk, and entry is free, though there is a £3 cost to use the pay and display carpark. If you have a carload of 4 people this makes it less than a pound each for the day, which is hard to complain about! The park has lots to offer. As soon as you leave the carpark ...
