Coombe Country Park is a country park located in Warwickshire. The park is only 4.5 miles (7.5 km) east of Coventry city centre and is managed by Coventry City Council. The park has been developed from the grounds of an old Cistercian Abbey, the buildings of which have now been converted into the Coombe Abby Hotel.
In the 18th century the landscape of the park was designed by Capability Brown making it an historically important site for the region, however evidence dates back to occupation in the area to the Romans. The eldest daughter of James VI, Elizabeth Stewart, Queen Of Bohemia was also educated at Coombe Abby, and there are links to Guy Falkes and the Gunpowder Plot.
The park now contains 500 acres (2.0 km2) of woodlands, formal gardens, arboretum, open grasslands and lake. It has a visitor centre equipped with a Café, Gift shop, Crafty cat ceramics and Woodturners workshops. It also has a climbing forest, bird hide, summer wild flower meadow and an extensive events programme.
