Coombe Abbey Hotel

Brinklow Road, Binley Coventry CV3 2AB United Kingdom

Coombe Abbey Hotel - Coventry, England
Hotel Description

Coombe Abbey Hotel stands in 500 Acres of Parkland. Much of the splendour of its original state can still be admired as parts of the Cistercian Abbey have been impressively restored to their former glory. Coombe was the largest and most powerful monastery in Warwickshire. The Abbey remained in the hands of the Monks until the dissolution of the Monasteries in 1539, whereby the land was appropriated by King Henry VIII. The estate changed hands several times and was acquired by John Harrington in the year 1581. In 1603 Princess Elizabeth, daughter of James I, came to live and be educated at Coombe Abbey. In 1605, Guy Fawkes famous gunpowder plot failed. His plan had been to kidnap the Princess Elizabeth from Coombe Abbey and put her on the throne, following the assassination of her father. The Craven Family purchased Coombe Abbey in 1622, and it remained with them for 300 years. The Craven Family employed Lancelot Capability Brown in 1771 to re-design the gardens and surrounding land at Coombe. His work can be seen to this day. In 1922, the estate was divided into various lots and sold at auction. A builder named John Gray bought the house and grounds in 1923, and demolished much of the East Wing and sold many of the interior fittings to recoup much of the purchase price. Coventry City Council purchased Coombe Abbey in 1964 along with its estate of 150 acres. A series of vital restoration work followed and in 1966, the Regional Park was opened to the public. 1992 saw the development to restore Coombe Abbey into a īNo Ordinary Hotelī
