Introducing Hermit’s Hollow, Coombe Abbey’s brand-new play park in Coventry. Full of adventure, your children can freely explore the Hermit’s talking tube, clamber high amongst treetops on the Canopy Spire or whizz back to the ground on the spiralling tube.
10am – 4pm
Parking is available in Coombe Abbey Park Car Park, you can find prices here. Disabled parking is also available next to The Avenue at Coombe.
Please note, dogs are not allowed.
Conveniently located near Go Ape. Your children can jump from one fun activity to the next when heading over to Hermit’s Hollow.
Tickets are purchased for timed slots at Hermit’s Hollow, each 2 hours long. Children’s tickets are £3.95 and can be booked online in advance or at the on-site kiosk. Adults can enter the play facility free of charge. The slots are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
This new facility compliments the newly refurbished play area at the Visitor Centre and the Climbing Forest which are both free to use.
Toddlers have their own mini-adventure to enjoy and accompanying adults or caregivers – when not climbing and clambering in the play structures themselves – can enjoy a tasty treat and hot drink from Hermit’s Cafe, which is located within the woodland playground.
Hermits Hollow is based on a notable period of Coombe’s nearly 900-year history when it was the residence of Princess Elizabeth, daughter of King James I in the early 1600s.
During her time there, the princess was gifted an ‘island’ within the grounds where she ordered the creation of a cottage for a widow and her children, where fowls would be kept, and it was given the appearance of a type of building known as a hermitage.
We hope that Hermit’s Hollow will help to stir the imagination of children as well as offer plenty of ways to slide, climb and run around!
