Set in the tranquil Warwickshire countryside with 500 acres of parkland, formal gardens and a peaceful lake, you can explore the outdoors and then retire to the restaurant, bar or relax back in your bedchamber... Although there will be plenty paranormal activities taking place throughout the weekend.
Coombe Abbey is situated some five miles to the east of Coventry and is approached by a long tree-lined drive from the Binley-Brinklow road. Now a hotel set in a Country Park, in 1961 it served as a Hall of Residence for apprentices of the General Electric Company Ltd., and has had a long and varied history. Over the past eight hundred years it has been a Cistercian abbey, a ruin, the temporary home of a King's daughter, the seat of titled families and a private residence. It has associations with the author of the "Morte d'Arthur", the Wars of the Roses, the Lady Jane Grey, the Stuart Family and the Gunpowder Plot, the Thirty Years War and the English Civil War. The history of Coombe is a fascinating story.
Originally founded as an abbey in the 12th century, their historical buildings have had an interesting life. The Abbey was surrendered to King Henry VIII during the dissolution of the monasteries, and the future Queen Elizabeth I even lived here as a child. The hotel is truly unique, and staying there means you get a real sense of history. You wouldn’t expect any less from a former royal residence.
Experience a touch of something different, mediaeval entertainment, four-poster beds, individually designed bedchambers, and more. With 119 rooms and conference and banqueting facilities, Coombe Abbey is the perfect setting for our Paranormal convention - it is in fact extremely HAUNTED. There are many legends surrounding the old abbey, apparitions of the spirits who roam the candlelit corridors have been seen by staff and guests alike and there is even a tomb inside the abbey of a poor murdered soul. Monks, Murder, Mystery and Mayhem... do you dare investigate these corridors yourself?
Coome Abbey is within easy reach of key M1 and M6 motorways and transport links, as well as being just a short distance from Birmingham, Warwick, and Stratford Upon Avon. To book your accommodation, please read the information below.
Majority of the convention guests will be staying at the abbey the entire weekend, should you wish to book your room we advise you do so asap.
