We visited 16 venues around Dorset and Hampshire and found that Kingston Country Courtyard ticked all the boxes. We didn’t want some rigid package full of rules and conveyor-belt weddings; this venue is about making it your own. The possibilities are endless, the venue has so much character and there are so many pretty little areas to decorate. All of... More

On our first visit to Kingston Country Courtyard to look at it as a prospective venue for our daughter's wedding, as soon as we saw its setting and from talking to Bobbie realised how relaxed and flexible they were, we were pretty certain it would be the ideal venue. With a large majority of guests coming from outside the area,... More

My nephew's wedding was due to be here last October but circumstances (birth of their son) meant postponing it until this August, so after deposits paid it could have got complicated, but everything was handled efficiently, and courteously, especially as our plans and numbers were still undecided until last week, but all changes and email were answered in a friendly...

Four of us stayed in the "Loft", a first floor apartment within a very pretty courtyard setting consisting of a decent double bedroom, separate bathroom and a lounge/diner that can also be used as a second bedroom as it has a sofa bed. We stayed here for one night and given that it was a very late booking on a... More

We stayed here about 9 years ago and looked forward to staying again this time with our grandson. Oh what a sad disappointment. The accommodation was small and the sofa and chairs awfully shabby and worn. The bed was a very small double and the bedroom very airless even with the window wide open. If the weather was hot I...

Hello again, it’s Lara here. I remember checking you into one of our large Superior suites on two floors which had not been renovated when you last stayed. The attic bedroom is located upstairs with the window looking out towards the countryside reaching the views and trees at the back of the courtyards is often a welcomed quiet space. The... More

The bed (in Farriers) was comfortable and the breakfast generous and efficiently organised. We had an extra living space (useful as the wait for food at the busy pub in the village was one hour) but the price for the room was 50% over the going rate. Generally helpful and friendly staff. Several features are amateurish. The gravel courtyard means... More

It is great to hear you liked the new bed in Farriers. We are sorry the gravelled courtyard bothered you but are sure you would agree tarmac would not be in keeping with a traditional courtyard dating back to 16thC. The caravan tucked away in the far corner of our large free car park is staff accommodation and on site... More

It was a shame our reservation was not in the system, despite booking through Booking.com and showing the receptionist the receipt. But she found us a twin and a double both of which were nicely refurbished from stable block and were fine albeit with paper-thin walls. However, it was 7pm with kids in mid of school holidays so it would... More

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). Some... More

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

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
