Why We Love This Hotel

  • Founded as an abbey in 1150, the property was home to James I's daughter and was part of the Gunpowder Plot
  • It is set in 500 acres of parkland and Capability Brown-designed gardens
  • Charlecote Park and Coughton Court are both within 45 minutes' drive
  • Feature Bedchambers have a 4-poster bed, a bed with a canopy or a Victorian roll-top bath

Overview

With candlelit corridors, vaulted ceilings, a portcullis and a wealth of history buried within, Coombe Abbey Hotel is a 12th-century former monastery set in rolling Warwickshire countryside. It is surrounded by the 500-acre Coombe Country Park, which has Capability Brown-designed gardens and a lake lined with willow trees.

The property has an interesting history -- founded in 1150 as the Abbey of Cumbe, it was surrendered to King Henry VIII in 1539 during the Dissolution of the Monasteries. It was later home to Princess Elizabeth (daughter of James I), who came to be educated at the abbey in 1603. Had James I been killed in the Gunpowder Plot, Guy Fawkes planned to kidnap the princess from Coombe Abbey and put her on her father's throne.

Warwickshire is home to many stately homes and sites of historic interest. National Trust property Charlecote Park is 30 minutes' drive away. The hotel is also 45 minutes from Coughton Court (open March-October), which, like Coombe Abbey, claims historical ties with the Gunpowder Plot. Stratford-upon-Avon and Birmingham are within 40 minutes' drive of the hotel, and Coventry is 15 minutes away.

The hotel has a restaurant, and a bar with an extensive drinks menu. Afternoon tea is served in the Garden Room restaurant from 12:30-3:45pm (pre-booking is advised). Medieval banquets are held on Saturday, and have been running for 40 years.

Rooms have ornate decoration and a traditional look. Feature Bedchambers each have a unique feature, such as a 4-poster bed, a bed with a canopy or a Victorian roll-top bath. Some bedrooms are in the original mansion, and some are in a modern wing.
