We spent a wonderful three nights at Kingston Country Courtyard for a long weekend in October 2016. We loved our room which was spacious and comfortable and looked out onto a beautiful garden with fields at the end and far reaching views over to Corfe Castle. Location couldn't have been better: easy to find, walking distance to the village and... More

Ok cheap place to stay for the night with very few features whatsoever. Internet doesn't work in the rooms and the breakfast was sort of tedious. But what can you expect at that price. The sweet waitress though suggested herself to make a sandwich bag for my walk. Nice but a little pricey.

We had the most perfect day here for our wedding. The venue is stunning, not far from where we live in Bournemouth but you really feel on holiday in the countryside!!

One night in "Carpenter's 2" was a mixed experience. Barring a couple of cobwebs in the beams, the accommodation was spotless. The ground floor bathroom and lounge, with a first floor bedroom, was convenient if either of us wanted to retire early. Or it should have been. Unfortunately, there's very little or no sound-proofing, so the people talking in the... More

My partner and I stayed for one night at the Kingston Courtyard.

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
