Socks or chocs, socks or chocs…which one is it this year?

Dads can be notoriously hard to buy for. Maybe you’re sick of trawling through the usual options and wondering instead how to show your appreciation for the special Dad in your life.

Coombe Abbey Hotel prides itself on providing something a little extra. We love to offer unique experiences to our visitors and we host a range of luxury, artisan, and truly one-of-a-kind gifts on our online shop

We’ve pulled together eight of our favourite Father’s Day gift ideas for Dads of every kind. Adventurer, ale drinker, or music aficionado – we’ve got you covered in 2022.

Coombe Abbey Gin and Mead

Local dads may appreciate a souvenir from our very own grounds. Coombe Abbey has partnered with Birmingham distillery 1000 Trades to create an award-winning range of local spirits.

Go traditional with the classic yet zesty Coombe Abbey Gin. Or, if Dad prefers something a little more unique, our authentic Coombe Abbey Mead brings an element of surprise to your regular gift bottle.

Coombe Abbey History Book

Maybe you share memories of walking in Coombe Abbey. History buffs will love to find out what came before. Delve back centuries into Coombe Abbey’s past and learn about its fascinating past with the Coombe Abbey History Book

It’s a thoughtful Father’s Day gift idea for those already familiar with Coombe Abbey: but there’s always more to learn.

A gift voucher for Knight’s Afternoon Tea

Treat him like a royal (well, almost) with our Knight’s Afternoon Tea. This truly unique day out is a cream tea with a twist. If you’ve caught Dad watching historical dramas a few too many times, this one’s for him. 

Served on a rustic bench, guests will be treated to hot small plates such as pigs in blankets, cottage pie, and salmon finger sandwiches. But not to fear – nobody’s jumping on a horse after this! Instead, you can amble around our Old Deer Park or sneak in a beer before home time. 

Knight’s Afternoon Tea is served from Tuesday to Sunday, between 12:15pm and 2:30pm. Please purchase a voucher to book in advance.

Murder Mystery with bed and breakfast

We’re proud to offer such different experiences at Coombe Abbey. Our beautiful Warwickshire setting makes us popular for a calm getaway – but we love to have some fun, too.

If a special dad in your life fancies himself as a bit of a detective, put his skills to the test with a Murder Mystery stay for two

Guests will rack their brains to uncover the (fictional) murderer and enjoy a three-course meal and a complimentary glass of wine. Then, it’s time for a post-show disco. This fascinating Father’s Day gift idea is complete with a night’s stay in our hotel and breakfast the following morning.

A “Night Out at Coombe Abbey” experience

We guarantee any parent would be grateful for a grown-up night out! New dad or seasoned expert, our Night Out at Coombe Abbey experience shakes up the usual weekend. 

With our voucher, Dad can pick a date and head out for his choice of the Murder Mystery, Mediaeval Banquet, or Speakeasy Blinders night. 

Each voucher is available for two or four people – why not make it a double date?

A thrilling Pure Queen tribute night

Got a dad dancer on your hands? Chances are he’d appreciate one of Coombe Abbey’s unforgettable music night packages.

Rock all night to Pure Queen, a spectacular tribute which pays homage to Freddie Mercury himself. The event features over 25 of Queen’s greatest hits, and Dad’s favourite is sure to be in there. 

What’s more, the package comes complete with a 3-course dinner and a post-show disco.

Treats from the Abbey Artisan Market

After your visit to Coombe Abbey, swing by the Artisan Market in the Visitor’s Centre. It’s stocked with one-of-a-kind local produce and makes an ideal end to Dad’s day. 

Find beer, crisps, nuts, and popcorn (perfect if you’ve got a barbecue or film night planned). There are even meal kits to treat him to a top-quality “fakeaway”

A Go Ape adventure

If your dad’s known to monkey around, a trip to our on-site Go Ape is a hair-raising Father’s Day gift idea. 

Thrill seekers will be in their element high above the visitors below. Leap off treetop platforms, wind through rope nets, and balance to reach a show stopping zip wire at the end. 

This gift is ideal for families, couples, and friends alike. More ambitious climbers can try the Treetop Challenge, while smaller adventurers should opt for the Treetop Adventure

You might even choose to ease the post-climb nerves at the nearby Garden Bar. Dad deserves this one.


Whether you’re in visiting distance of Coombe Abbey or you’ve found a treat on our online shop, we hope we can help show the special Dad in your life how much he means to you. 

Book all vouchers and experiences on our “Visit” page – and why not consider an extra night’s stay in our stunning grounds? 

Serene and surprising in equal measures, we’re no ordinary hotel. Dad’s sure to love it.
