To make sure your day runs like clockwork, the Kingston Estate will assign you with your own personal wedding planner and team to bring your wedding vision to life, leaving you with plenty of time to spend with your friends and family. In addition, whether you would like to hold a pre-wedding event in the mansion itself, cocktails in the library, a pizza extravaganza in The Big Yurt, games on the lawn, or a pamper night in the cottages, the team will take care of it all.


Thanks to a number of licensed ceremony areas you can chose to marry in the grand Marble Hall, the snug and cosy Drawing Room, the Walled Garden, the Rose Garden, the Linhay Barn, and for a real statement, the sweeping staircase of the Manor House.

With regards to food they have our own well respected creative catering team who specialise in local, seasonal produce, and will work with you to create your own bespoke menu based on your preferences. They can provide anything and everything from pre-wedding street style food to get the weekend started, breakfast stations to absorb any headaches, delectable canapes to keep any hunger at bay, to the main meal itself with formal plated meals, or table feasts. The choice is yours and everything is tailored to you, there are no set menus here.


When the dinner and speeches are over, you and your guests can head down to the Undercroft their secret nightclub for the party to end all parties! Adjoined to the Linhay Barn, you can party into the night, and even take a dip in the hot tub with a cheeky nightcap.


When you and your guests are ready to retire for the night, you have the choice of sleeping in the mansion itself, one of the nine quintessential cottages, or in the 2 new luxuriously converted barns within the estate’s grounds. The mansion can sleep eight people, and the cottages can sleep 46, and the barns can sleeps an additional 32. In the morning, you can treat yourselves to an indulgent breakfast with bacon sandwiches and strong coffee!

Food was incredible
Venue Service

By Lucy & Hirad, on 26 Feb 2020Date of Wedding - 28 Sep 2019

Such a beautiful venue - we loved it so much. The food was incredible and despite having a changeover of wedding planner close to the wedding day, it had no impact on our day what so ever. The venue are calm and professional and loved their approach to communication which was friendly.

Above & Beyond
Venue Service

By Martin Butlin, on 26 Feb 2020Date of Wedding - 14 Sep 2019

The venue was great we had a few personal health issues beforehand but the team went above and beyond to make the day extra special. The wedding planner organised everything for us and they had plenty of props on site that we were free to use. We had the whole place to ourselves for the weekend it was brilliant and our friends loved the hot tub and pool.

Fell in love with the venue on our first visit
Venue Service

By Emily, on 26 Feb 2020Date of Wedding - 07 Sep 2019

Fell in love with the venue on our first visit. We were particularly looking for a venue which could cater us for 3 days and sleep the majority of the the guests. The grounds were well kept especially the walled garden which is where the ceremony took place. The team were a pleasure and made the day truly special.

Took our breath away
Venue Service

By Stephanie Jenner, on 26 Feb 2020Date of Wedding - 31 Aug 2019

Kingston estate took our breath away when we first saw it but nothing prepared us for how it was on our wedding day! Everything was perfect, the staff were so friendly! The venue was the perfect backdrop and had so many options our guests loved being able to move around and get a different vibe for each location at the venue. We feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to have our wedding there! It was a dream come true!

Class and vibe of its own
Venue Service

By Laura Bromley, on 26 Feb 2020Date of Wedding - 17 Aug 2019

We wanted a venue that would let us be us, that didn’t make you feel like the next couple on the package wedding conveyor belt in at 8am and guests out by 12. We wanted to make it all last as long as possible. Kingston Estate as a venue has a class and vibe all of it’s own and when you add everyone you love to this it’s just the perfect match. We got married on August 17th and the comments and praise we have had from guests re the venue has been out of this world!

Everything & More
Venue Service

By Charlotte Percival, on 26 Feb 2020Date of Wedding - 10 Aug 2019

Our 3-day wedding celebrations were spent at the STUNNING Kingston Estate - a truly unique venue that we absolutely fell in love with. It had EVERYTHING we were looking for & more. The grounds are perfectly manicured all year round & come complete with walled garden. The cottages & main house are beautifully decorated, providing luxurious accommodation for 86 of our guests. Sarah & the team were such a pleasure to work with & couldn’t do enough for us. The catering was also top notch. Thank you

Best weekend ever
Venue Service

By Charlie Reid, on 26 Feb 2020Date of Wedding - 10 Aug 2019

We had the best weekend ever at Kingston we had the whole place to ourselves but it was also staffed and we had our very own wedding planner from the moment we booked. We were able to relax on the Friday and have some time with our guests and on Saturday the wedding was better than we could have imagined. The food throughout the weekend was delicious and we even put a menu together which was really different. It was an awesome day everyone loved the different areas especially the nightclub.

Amazing food
Venue Service

By Ellie Darcy, on 26 Feb 2020Date of Wedding - 27 Jul 2019

The fact that we could have the majority of our guests stay on site with us all weekend was a huge selling point of Kingston for us. The venue is beautiful and all of the rooms/cottages are finished to an equally high standard. The food was AMAZING and they catered for all of the dietary requirements our guests had with no queries what so ever. The weekend went without a hitch with all of the staff working so hard behind the scenes so that we didn’t need to worry about a thing.

Loved every second
Venue Service

By Vickie Monaghan, on 26 Feb 2020Date of Wedding - 06 Jul 2019

Great venue, really helpful team and very flexible. Really welcoming and relaxed. Bent their standard rules to accommodate a few key things for us, which other venues wouldn’t do. We loved every second we spent there.

A Devon Treasure
Venue Service

By Madeleine & Jack, on 26 Feb 2020Date of Wedding - 22 Jun 2019

The venue and staff were brilliant from start to finish. The venue is really multi-functional and caters for rain or shine. The weather was really unpredictable around the time of our wedding but I was a stress free bride knowing they had it in hand. The food supplier was stunning - we had a weekend package which all the guests raved about. That coupled with the unlimited drinks pages made it the perfect venue for us. A Devon treasure that feels like being on a film set - everyone loved it!

Wow factor venue with incredible service
Venue Service

By Caroline Powell, on 26 Feb 2020Date of Wedding - 27 Apr 2019

We chose Kingston Estate for the venue and on site accommodation. One of its really unique characteristics which made our wedding was the ability to hold our special occasion across several spaces including the yurt for the night before, the main house for our wedding drinks and canapés reception, the barn for the wedding breakfast and the undercroft for the party. Everyone was blown away by this as each area was unveiled! A fantastic wow factor venue with incredible service. A must have!

Great Service
Venue Service

By Suzy Thompson Yates, on 26 Feb 2020Date of Wedding - 13 Apr 2019

From viewing until after we'd been married we had great service. Nothing was too much trouble and we had the best day ever.
