The best day of our lives
Many of our guests have said that ours was the best wedding they have ever been to, and that was completely down to Kingston Country Courtyard. The location, the views, the staff, the food, the accommodation, the atmosphere, everything was flawless. Bobbie is amazing, I was a nervous bride and constantly emailing her with questions and she was calm, patient and reassuring, exactly what I needed, although I must have driven her mad! Thank you so much for making that whole weekend the best of our lives.

Superb venue
I have been to three weddings, two birthday parties (one was my own!), two wine tastings and numerous other events at Kingston Country Courtyard. The food is fantastic, the setting sublime and the whole team that make it happen front of house and behind the scenes are totally terrific! The barn is beautiful and can be decorated so that each event is unique. One of the many advantages is the B&B accommodation for so many. Truly lovely place and people. ♥️

Truly was the best day of my life
We got married here in may 2018. It was a stunning venue and was fabulous. On the Friday night, most people stayed at the barn. We had the bar open and the team were kind enough to let us serve our own bbq. The wedding on the Saturday was the most perfect day! The team were so organised and I didn’t have to worry about anything. I was a very relaxed and unorganised bride and the team were fabulous at understanding what we wanted for our day and delivering it. The communication from them was excellent. We both had the most amazing weekend and everything about it was perfect!
