Recently had a return visit to the Kingston estate where we spent a lovely few days with family. We'd been before (sept 14, staying in walnut cottage) and this was a return trip - staying in jackdaws cottage this time. Family group consisted of myself, partner and our toddler (2 yr old) and her grandparents. Jackdaws was set up perfectly... More

We recently celebrated a family wedding here and it was fantastic. The venue is perfect. The gardens are superb and then the wedding breakfast was held in the Barn with wonderful views over the parterre gardens. The dancing was held in the Undercroft-a wonderful space with a champagne bar. The accommodation is excellent and we took the house and cottages... More

We have just returned from four gentle and happy days at Kingston. We stayed in Bass Cottage, which was perfect for my husband and myself and our three children. The rooms were well appointed and the kitchen was very adequately provisioned. And my children spent many fun hours in the hot tub. My elderly parents stayed in The Stables, which... More

In the evening we had curry, rice and naan bread served outside which was lovely. On the Saturday the wedding ceremony was held outside and then... More

We have just spent a fantastic weekend at the beautifully presented Kingston Estate. We attended the wedding of our friends daughter and from the beginning to the end of the weekend we had a first class experience. The big house is decorated to the highest standard, the gardens were very well tended and beautifully presented and our accommodation was clean... More

We found Kingston Estate in Staverton to be welcoming, very well maintained, comfortable, fabulous gardens and views. We would not hesitate in recommending this accommodation. We enjoyed our 6 days in Walnut Cottage.

Attended a wedding at the main house and also stayed in one of the on site cottages. Inside my three bedroom cottage it was very well presented with wi fi, even if you did want to get away from it all you can still log on while sitting in the garden and chill out with a glass of wine and... More

Recently attended a wedding with my husband and two small children at the excellent Kingston Estate, and stayed overnight in one of the lovely cottages on site. Perhaps it is my age, but we seem to be attending weddings on a pretty regular basis these days! This place really stood out for us in so many ways for. Not only... More

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.
