Area & Hotel History

The Cocked Hat Hotel is situated in what was once Binley Common House, a 17th century building which formed part of the Craven estate attached to nearby Coombe Abbey. It was the bailiff’s home, and the local yeomanry regiment had a base there at the start of the 19th century, which is where the name ‘cocked hat’ comes from.


The hotel’s location, Binley Woods, is a village that began as a settlement in 1923 when parts of Coombe Abbey were sold and people in the area were forced to move. Many people also sought refuge in the area during the 1940s, when they were bombed out of their Coventry homes


Coventry, only three miles from the hotel, was bombed so badly during the Blitz in World War II that it inspired a new Nazi verb, ‘Coventrieren’ (to devastate or raze a city). When the war ended, the city embarked on a long rebuilding process that included a beautiful new cathedral being built around the remains of the old one. Coventry Cathedral is now just one of the many extraordinary buildings that make an impression on the urban landscape, while Coventry’s industrial history in car-making has led to the creation of a fascinating transport museum.


Binley Woods was once part of the vast Coombe Abbey Estate, and the hotel was originally a farmhouse of Flemish bond brick, built in the late 17th century and now a Grade II listed building. Having a major refurbishment in 2012, the hotel now has a Fayre & Square pub on site offering delicious food and refreshments, including a choice of excellent Bass ales.

Local Attractions

About Binley Woods, Coventry

Sitting just off the A46, between the M40 and M6 motorways, is the village of Binley Woods. The area has good local amenities and excellent links to the road network, being just 4 miles from Coventry city centre, and within easy reach of nearby Rugby, Nuneaton and Kenilworth.


Warwick Castle (11.7 miles)

This stunning English landmark encompassing over 11 centuries of history is a must-visit for history buffs and families. With attractions including Merlin’s Dragon Tower, the castle Dungeon and the world’s biggest working trebuchet siege engine, there is something for everyone at Warwick Castle.


Coventry Cathedral (3.7 miles)

The ruins of the old Cathedral, completely destroyed by aerial bombardment in November 1942, sit in the grounds of the new modernist St Michael’s Cathedral, opened in 1962. Both are open to visitors daily, and among many noteworthy aspects are the Wooden Cross, made from the scorched timbers of the roof of the old cathedral, and the unconventional spire.


Coventry Transport Museum (3.9 miles)

Being the birthplace of the British cycle and motor industry, it was only natural that Coventry would have the largest collection of British road transport in the world.

For those with green fingers, a trip to Ryton Gardens is the ideal day out to learn more about organic gardening, farming and food. This internationally famous tourist attraction has ten acres of display gardens, including a wildflower meadow, native trees and lake for you to roam.

This self-funded independent aviation museum showcases a series of spectacular planes from throughout the decades. Exhibitions include the ‘Wings over Coventry’, featuring wind tunnel models and fascinating aircraft components.
