Coombe Abbey Hotel,


An historic building with 500 acres of gardens and parklands Coombe Abbey Hotel has a rich and fascinating history. It has housed royals, been part of the Gunpowder Plot and was even surrendered to King Henry VIII as part of the dissolution of the monasteries. The Craven family acquired Coombe Abbey in 1622 and it remained with them for an impressive 300 years. During the Craven family reign, Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown was asked to redesign the surrounding gardens and land. William Eden Nesfield was asked to make alterations to the house, making sure he incorporated a Gothic Revival style. With this brief, the East Wing and parts of the North Wing were demolished and rebuilt.

Following the tragic death of Lord Craven in 1921, the Countess made the difficult decision to sell the estate. In 1923, the house and its grounds were bought by a builder named John Gray. Coventry City Council took ownership of the Abbey in 1964, along with its extensive estate of 150-acres and after a series of vital restoration, in 1966 the breath taking Regional Park was opened to the public with the hotel opening in 1995.

Coombe Abbey is a venue with so many photo opportunities you will be spoilt for choice, the gardens, the inside of the hotel, the outside it is simply spectacular wherever you go!
