Coombe Abbey Country Park is set in some of the most beautiful countryside of Warwickshire. It offers a great variety of activities for all the family, including children’s play areas, coarse fishing, formal gardens and lakeside walks. It also has a pleasant gift shop and restaurant, and wildlife enthusiasts will love the fact that one of the UK’s largest heronries is here, complete with an accessible, large bird hide. Don’t forget to bring your binoculars when you come here from your Hereford hotel or guesthouse!
Hereford Hotels For Coombe Abbey Country Park
It’s easy to get from Coventry city centre to Coombe Abbey, as it’s just five miles to the east along the A427, and then head for Lutterworth Road. The Park is open throughout the year, seven days a week. It was originally redeveloped from the remains of one of England’s old historic abbeys that were effectively demolished by Henry VIII during his Dissolution, with the best of what survived being converted into a hotel. Lancelot Capability Brown designed the park’s landscape in the 18th Century, and today, it is one of Warwickshire’s most important historic sites.
Coombe Abbey Fishing from Coventry Hotels
For fishing enthusiasts staying at Coventry hotels or guesthouses, Coombe Park has a special attraction. The Fishery here is a mature estate lake that covers more than 80 acres and is beautifully set in the 400 acres of the Park’s protected, natural surroundings. Types of fish in the lake include zander, pike, tench, carp and bream, and anglers are welcome to fish here between 16 June and 14 March, so the Fishery adheres to the normal close season.
Nothing can beat relaxing in the park’s beautiful surroundings while you fish in its lake, knowing that it is a Site of Special Scientific Interest as part of the associated woodland and Heronry, and that you’re doing no harm to nature.
Coombe Abbey Education and Coventry hotels
Coombe Abbey runs a series of educational programmes and events throughout the year for all ages. These include everything from kids’ birthday parties to school and college projects, designed to enhance an appreciation of the natural environment.
