I have now stayed at Kingston Country courtyard on a couple of occasions I have to say I have always been delighted with my stay. On this last occasion I went to a wine tasting evening with a bed and breakfast stay over.
The rooms as you would expect by the name are laid out courtyard style. I stayed in room 1 firstly what is really nice is I could park my car immediately outside the door of the room, perfect for a quick unload.
The Room itself was a good sized double room with a large ensuite wet room style bathroom.
Very clean warm and well presented.
Tea and coffee making facilities and small flat screen Tv perfect!!
Lovely freshly cooked full English style breakfast was provided in the restaurant only a few yards from the room.
After a long 5 hour coastal and inland trek I had a traditional roast dinner with all the trimmings - very nice piping hot food and lovely gravy!! The service was great and the waiter was a very friendly smiling chap, he was no youngster but there were quite a few dinners to serve and I thought he coped very well and kept smiling all the way through a busy service.
Looking briefly at the other facilities I can see why this venue is a favourite for weddings, beautiful setting with an amazing view.
All in all I would highly recommend this venue everyone seemed very friendly and eager to please :-)

- 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.
