Top choice hotel in Coventry
Image by

Queen Elizabeth I lived as a child at this 200-hectare estate, 5.5 miles east of Coventry. The 12th-century abbey was converted into a stately manor in 1581, with parkland, formal gardens and a lake. Many of its 119 uniquely decorated rooms have ornate four-poster beds; some have bathrooms hidden behind bookcases. There's a glass-paned conservatory restaurant and regular themed banquets.
