My wife and I attended a surprise party held in the barn. The venue was very good with a 'noisy' room for dancing and the like and a break out area in the bar where us 'oldies' could catch up with friends not seen for years. The accommodation was very clean and comfortable. Another superb stay and a great weekend...

For this visit I was walking the SW coast path with my dog and needed somewhere to lay my head down between 2 days of long walking. I arrived into the rather charming courtyard and was greeted warmly and taken to our room for the night and shown where it would be easier for me to park and unload the...

Thank you for your positive review, it's great to know you had such a comfortable stay in The Dairy Double which is also a dog friendly room. All our breakfasts are fresh cooked to order using as much local produce as possible so also very pleased to know you both enjoyed our sausages! Please come again!

Don't be put off by first impressions. The rooms are set around two courtyards, having been converted from farm buildings, and do look a little grim especially in winter. The rooms however are a very pleasant surprise - spacious and spotless with everything you could need including a sofa. We weren't keen on the rather cold wet room where the...

Dear Jenny thank you for your positive feedback. The barn with underfloor heating, provision of 12ft Christmas tree in the barn and an 8ft tree in the drinks reception room fully decorated makes the venue a perfect setting for a winter wedding, add comfort food, mulled wine or cider with warm colours to decorate and the theme is set. My...

Rooms were excellent; downstairs - a comfy sitting room with TV and kettle. Wet room. Upstairs a good sized double. Very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent - good choice and good portions. Great venue for lovely walks on the coast. Walking distance to a good pub.

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...

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.

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
