We are a group of 10 people who organise an annual weekend away. What a wonderful country house in an idyllic setting and with great service. The house and gardens are a top rated wedding venue but we also had friends staying in the beautiful cottages/stable attached to the house. Easy access to Totnes and wonderful coastal walks. Would highly...

We have just spent Christmas 2016 staying in The Stables cottage. Having never been away for Christmas before, we didn't know what to expect. However, on arrival at The Kingston Estate, we were blown away by the tranquil, beautiful location and the cottage was renovated and restored to a very high standard equipped with everything you could need. The quality...

The venue and the cottages worked perfectly for our wedding party and from start to finish the team at Kingston worked so hard to ensure that our day ran without a hitch. We had so many compliments about the...

It's a very nice and tranquil place to stay over the weekend to recharge your battery's. It's a self catering cottage but there lots of places where you can eat in the near by, an shops.

The cottage was great - large enough to fit all 8 of us in comfortably. The facilities were excellent, kept the grandchildren amused all week - swimming and playing in the play area on the equipment. Seeing the rabbits running about directly outside the gate was wonderful for the family too, and the bonus was seeing deer in the next...

We stayed in August 16 two adults and two children (10 and 7)in the coach house. I can't recommend this enough, very peaceful, woken only by the odd cow mooing! Lots for Holden to do they loved the trampoline, house immaculate and high standard furnishing made this holiday one of the best we have had. We will be back, thanks...

Kingston House gave my best friend a wonderful wedding, in the most tranquil and beautiful surrounding I have seen in the South of England. Our en-suite bedroom at Bass cottage was very clean, as if we were the first people to stay there, and had all the amenities one could think off. The light and airy decor with exposed beams...

We held our wedding at The Kingston Estate last weekend and what an amazing place. All our guests raved about the venue and the whole set up, from the panoramic views from the barn to the atmospheric undercroft. Thank you Sarah for all your hard work in making our day so special and we will have these happy memories forever....
