Have stayed here twice. Good location to explore Corfe; and the surrounding coastline & countryside. Accommodation is fairly basic for the price and could be improved by better furniture & more attention to detail (eg tea making counter fixed by large brackets to wall rather than a pleasant unit etc. cheap wardrobe could be replaced by decent inbuilt unit).

stayed in the farriers this weekend. Lovely location and beautiful old buildings. A perfect hide away near Corfu castle with a wonderful breakfast. Just a word to the owner to watch the details. Three out of the four spotlights lighting the sitting room area were broken, no shower or shower curtain and the mismatch of bright red curtains, turquoise bedspread... More

Thank you for your constructive review, we always value people's views on how to improve. I must say sorry for the light bulbs which have all been replaced. These should be checked each day when the room is cleaned and Housekeeping have been made aware, The decor in the Farriers is supposed to compliment the bedspread which has turquoise, lime... More

I stayed overnight here as I was attending a burial service in Swanage the next day. I was so fortunate to get a room. Yes, it was a budget room, The Byres, however, the service and personnel were outstanding. The wet room shower was an added bonus. The location was perfect with sweeping views across fields to Corfe Castle from... More

Spent one night in 'The Farriers', which is a superior double with a separate living area, akin to a junior suite in a hotel. The room is comfortable and well appointed with good quality furnishings but the bathroom doesnt quite meet the same standards. Although the room is not advertised with a shower there is a mixer with shower head... More

I needed a B&B for just one night near Corfe and this popped up on the web, the price was fine and I booked. It's easy to find, Kingston itself is lovely with a nice looking pub with fabulous views over the ruined castle. There are plainly many good walks nearby and it's a splendid place. Weddings are obviously the... More

Our wedding experience here this year was excellent. Bobbie and the team were endlessly patient, polite and helpful. This is not a venue at which you pick package a, b or c and just turn up on the day. At Kingston every facet of the wedding can be adjusted to make it an occasion unique to each family. Time spent...

We had a brilliant wedding here in June. The staff were incredibly friendly and very accommodating, allowing us to run with our own ideas on the run up to the wedding in our planning and on the day. The location of the venue is second to none, with views spanning across Corfe and out to the Isle Of Wight. The... More

We booked at the last minute as we'd had a change of plan. The whole place looked tired with weeds growing through the paving. The room was very gloomy, we sat outside on one rather dusty plastic chair and a wooden one with no arms, these were all that was available. The breakfast was very good but punctuated by the... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. Our two courtyards date back to the 15th Century and the Purbeck stone exposed can be dark but as listed we would not be able to change this. We consider ourselves fortunate to be surrounded by gardens and open fields which do attract extras such as weeds. Our amazing gardener... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Kingston Country Courtyard has been established for many years now, having started in one bedroom of the busy farmer’s Purbeck stone farmhouse. Subsequent years have seen the incorporation of the buildings into what you see today.As well as traditional farmhouse accommodation, Kingston Country Courtyard offers a variety of apartments and suites in tastefully converted Purbeck stone. Furnished to a very high standard and offering the comforts of modern living, they retain much of their original character and charm. Kingston Country Courtyard is situated in the heart of the Purbecks, which, at the eastern end of the Jurassic coast world heritage site, provides an abundance of activities and attractions. A short walk takes you to the Dorset Coastal Path that meanders from Shell Bay to Lulworth Cove and the famous Durdle Door - a dramatic coastline offering an outstanding variety of scenery. Popular local attractions include the 10th-century Corfe Castle - one of the most impressive mediaeval ruins in England; the nature and wildlife reserves of Brownsea Island, Durleston Country Park, the RSPB reserve at Arne, and the marine reserve at Kimmeridge Bay. You can step back to the steam age with the Swanage railway, visit the world famous Tank Museum at Bovington, and the nearby Monkey World Ape Rescue Centre at Wool, or visit the Lytchett Minster Courtyard Craft Centre. Golf, walking, watersports, riding, bicycling, cliff climbing, leisurely pub meals...the list is endless! Or simply relax on the golden sands of Studland Bay and watch the world go by! Kingston Country Courtyard offers a wide and flexible arrangement of accommodation to suit all needs. Whether you require a self-catered family accommodation or fully serviced rooms (twin, double or suite) we can provide them. All rooms feature en-suite facilities (either bath or shower) and all have colour TV and tea and coffee making facilities. Irons and hair dryers are available on request, and fresh towels are provided. Access to free wifi. ... more   less
