COOMBE ABBEY has scooped another accolade by collecting the red rose symbol of VisitEngland – proving it’s a top visitor attraction.

The symbol has been awarded to Coventry’s Country Park after an assessor paid an unannounced visit and checked everything the park had.

The accreditation reflects the visitor experience and quality of products and services offered by the attraction and staff.

Coombe Country Park has been part of the VisitEngland scheme for over ten years and can continue to proudly display the quality rose marque which is the internationall recognised symbol of the English Tourist Board.

Coun Kevin Maton, cabinet member for business, enterprise and employment, said: “I’d like to thank all of the staff and volunteers who work hard to make our park such a fabulous place to visit.

“Coventry residents can be proud that Coombe has once again been recognised as one of the best attractions that the West Midlands has to offer.”

The assessor explained the park contained a very well maintained historic landscape, excellent visitor information and on-site interpretation.
