“Woodland Walk”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

Been here so many times. Lovely woodland walks with a bird hyde to watch the comings and goings of so many birds and other wildlife. The only down side is the car parking charge which is extortionate and the very poor toilet facilities.

“Amazing place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

This is an amazing place. Car park was a little pricey (£3.65) but after that you are in a beautiful location with walks galore. There's a great playground near the visitor's center, and an (aged 8 upwards) more advanced climbing course well into the park which kept my 9 year old occupied for ages.
Bring some bread to feed the ducks!

“So much to do......”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

The country park was fantastic. There is so many different walks you can do while you are here. The information center is very interesting great for children and adults alike.
The tea room caters for teas, coffee and cakes but I would take a picnic as there is so much to see and do.

“my favourite place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

I love Coombe. Take my children and dogs regularly. I have a parking pass which saves me money throughout the year. Love having bbqs out of season there. Always something new to see. Can't wait for the new centte at Top Pool to open and offer other toilet facilities at that end of the park. some good Geocaches in coo be too. The medieval banquets are a fabulous night out. Coombe would get 5 stars once the top pool is finished and if the hotel offered a minibus service for banquets as the price of taxis are very high.

“Britain at its most picturesque”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

The Abbey and the surrounding park are lovely. Take some food for the swans and ducks on the lake, and don't forget your camera.
Great play area for the children
