Supposed to be a luxury cottage the standard is far from luxury, over priced poorly equiped. Cheaply furnished masquerading as top class. I give the accommodation a star rating of 2 and that is generous.

Whilst looking for accommodation close to friends in Devon, around New Year, I came across Kingston Estate, what a fabulous find! There they have a collection of quaint and well equipped cottages in FABULOUS grounds, with the added bonus of children's playground, swimming pool, sauna, games room AND use of McCaulay's Health Clubs and Dinnaton Golf Club. We stayed in... More

Had a wonderful 2 weeks in Bass Cottage. Not one thing to complain about. It was comfortable, well equipped. Immaculately clean. Nice white sheets and towels. It was the most relaxing holiday we have ever had, such a peaceful place on an interesting estate. The new owners were charming nothing was too much trouble, I wish them the best of... More

Just returned from a long weekend in Walnut Cottage (Sept 2014). Three generations came together to celebrate birthdays and the cottage was perfect for us, our 17 month old daughter and the grandparents. Plenty of space for everyone! Our daughter loved the play equipment (swings, trampoline, slide) and the cows in the field behind the cottage were also a fascination!... More

We had a few days in Little Cottage with our dogs and really enjoyed ourselves. The cottage was lovely and beautifully presented. We loved everything about it. The dogs were spoilt with dog blankets, bowls and towels as well as crunchy treats. We were spoilt with the lovely cream scones! The cottage was clean and the bed linen lovely. The... More

We stayed in Coach Cottage in May with our 2 kids aged 8 and 10. The cottage was immaculate when we arrived, lovely new leather sofas and a wood burning stove! We had a very relaxing time in the super comfy beds. We took our dog too and enjoyed walking around the estate and the surrounding area. The kids loved... More

The Kingston Estate was a gorgeous location, very comfortable and homely, with lovely facilities for us and our children. Although you do need a car, the cottages are clean and extremely well-provided-for. We had a great time and would love an excuse to go back.

Thanks for your review although Bull Cottage has new leather sofa's and accessories it is due for refurbishment in September. Unfortunately we ran out of time before the Summer season began to start work on it. This is the first we have heard about a noise in the bedroom until 10pm however we will investigate and establish what's causing it.... More

We found the Kingston Estate online when we were looking for somewhere to stay with close friends at Easter. Both families have young children (under 5) and were looking for somewhere to delight all of us. We stayed in the Coach House - one family in each adjacent cottage and we loved it! Leather sofas, wood burning stoves, crisp white... More

New young owners at Kingston have done an amazing job with the cottages and I enjoyed a wonderful weekend with friends here who can be 'picky' about their accommodation - no one could find a fault - Walnut Cottage passed all the tests!! Tastefully and comfortably furnished and everything in pristine order. Wonderful 'away from it all' location, great walks... More
