Lovely day out

This is a really lovely place to spend a day with anyone at all. The play park is great and feeding the ducks great fun for the little ones.

Coombe is a great place to have a wander around no matter what your age, the kids love the park & the trees & the lake where we feed the ducks. We as adults love all of the above aswell except we are deemed as being to old for the park!! Haha The cafe serves snacks & has friendly staff.... More

Some lovely walks through walks and alongside lakes. It's always a breath of fresh air, along with the sight of the Abbey at the end of the lake. The only slight downsides are to pay for parking and that the cafe isn't particularly brilliant and not always open. On Sunday afternoons, the toilets and cafe close down far too early!

Nice hotel but not worth the money for a nights stay you also have to pay for parking ,rooms are very poorly lit and need up dating , lots of bugs but you are next to woodland, There is a nice little play area for children but very busy could do with more things for them .

When my Granddaughter was two We had a photo taken and I wondered what a new one would look like now she is 12. Turned out we didn't take it because the light was not right. Coombe Abbey park is not far from us and we quite often visit just for a relaxing wander round and feed the ducks/swans and... More

We have only ever been there to walk our dogs but a very good place for walking. There is a bird watching building close to the lake. Various activities happen during the summer months. Fees for car parking. Can get very busy when weather is good.

Booked a night here for my husbands birthday. What a smashing place. We had a feature room with dinner and breakfast the following morning. After checking out we put our bags in the car then walked round the park. We will definitely go there again. The food is good, service could be better but the abbey is just beautiful.

Nice few hours at Coombe Abbey. Parking is very good, well laid out and despite others on here complaining, the charge of £3.70 to park in what is a free to enter park isn't expensive. Visitor centre is impressive from the outside but a little disappointing inside. The idea of the arcade of shops hasn't really worked. However the park... More

A great day out had here by all the family in the park with the swings and slides, lunch in the cafe, and feeding the ducks. Very friendly young Irish lady who worked in the gift shop. Grounds and facilities very well maintained. Only negative is the parking during peak times on a sunny day, but don't let that put... More
