“great place - when we found it!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2014

Needs more brown signs to tell you where the park is, as we don't all have satnavs! Certainly one from Brinklow to tell you to turn right at the junction would be handy, as would one to say turn left at the traffic lights a mile or so after Walsgrave Hospital. However, once we arrived, we had a great time. At £3.70, parking is a bit expensive, but after that it is not necessary to spend any money unless you particularly want to. A lovely lake, woodland walks, discovery centre, shops, pond dipping, good playgrounds, etc made for an enjoyable day out.

“Coombe abbey”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

Originally a religious institution, then a grand family stately home, then property of Coventry corporation now the building is a hotel and restaurant. the grounds open to public are extensive park/woodland with lake which sustains fish, herons, swans and other wildlife. There is a information desk, sovenires restaurant etc apart from hotel. Plenty of parking and walks. The park contains many sculptures carved from tree trunks. a great place for walks, nature rambles picnics etc.

“Superb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

The park has always been a favourite for both adults and children in the family. The range of natural attractions is superb. Since the development of the Abbey as an hotel it has the added attraction of excellent catering facilities with a superb cuisine. It is expensive but good. Extensive parking facilities.
