Coombe Abbey, July 2021 – Regional Ramble

Coombe Abbey, July 2021

We started our leisurely ramble today from the visitor centre at Coombe Abbey Park.  The Park was designed by Capability Brown and has over 500 acres of beautiful gardens, woodland, and lakeside walks. It was very busy today on the approach to the lake as several groups of children and foreign tourist had arrived to enjoy the weather.  However, after passing the house we soon found the areas around the redwood trees and on the approach to Top Pool and Duck Decoy very quiet. We had our morning coffee break at ‘Bee & Bee’ which is an old hut surrounded with fallen trees where the walkers sat and had a chat. We then continued towards the heronry and bird hide near the lake before seeing some of the young people revelling in the climbing areas at Go Ape. After leaving the wooded area we enjoyed our lunch in a large open field in the sunshine and then headed back towards the house passing the lake to the Old Deer Park where we could see the outskirts of Coventry, grazing livestock, numerous rabbits, and low flying geese but no deer. We ended the day back at the visitor centre where some of us had a well-deserved ice cream.  Judy & Gordon
