Coombe Country Park

Coombe Country Park is a country park located in Warwickshire, England. Although the park is geographically in Warwickshire, it 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 abbey, the buildings of which have now been converted into the Coombe Abbey hotel. In the 18th century the landscape of the park was designed by Lancelot Brown making it an historically important site for the region.
Coombe's conservation area was first recognised as a SSSI (Site of Scientific Interest) over 40 years ago. This responsibly managed site remains a stellar sight for many birdwatchers and has a hide which gives direst views to warwickshire's largest Heronry.

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 Cafe, Gift shop, Discovery Centre, History room and Woodturners workshop. It also has a climbing forest, bird hide, summer wild flower meadow and an extensive events program.

Grey heron, marsh tit, lesser-spotted woodpecker.
Trail leaflets are available to buy from the Information Centre. Accessible routes are marked in the Visitor Guide, however, you can contact the Visitor Centre for more information.
