THE VENUE

Originally built in 1735, the Kingston Estate is breathtakingly stylish; featuring a marquetry staircase, library, bars, courtyard, hot tub, a rose garden, walled garden and 18th century parterre garden, you’ll find spaces you’ll love at every turn. What’s more, it is available for exclusive use hire meaning it can become your own private estate for the entirety of your wedding.

THE PERFECT DAY

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.

YOUR I DOS

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.

EXQUISITE FOOD & DRINK

The Estate’s in-house bar manager can create your very own drinks package for your wedding day; from champagne to aperitifs, the mixologist can even create a bespoke wedding cocktail specially for your day. 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.

PRIVATE PARTY

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.

ACCOMMODATION

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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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!

    Elite Venue

    Kingston Estate made our wedding so spectacular it was like a dream. Everything ran smoothly, everyone’s needs were catered for and the whole presentation of the venue was very impressive. My husband and I were extremely proud to be able to hold our wedding at such an elite venue. All of our guests were taken back by the level of service, the venue itself, the grounds, the food and the location.

    Wow

    Well what can I say.....a week ago today I married my best friend at the most beautiful venue I have ever seen. I cannot thank Marie-Anne, Jamie, Sarah and the Kingston team enough, our day was truly spectacular from the moment we partied on the Friday right through to the Sunday when we left. Marie-Anne did an amazing job of running everything on the Friday and especially the Saturday it went perfect, even in the heat we had it was truly the most amazing day. We are so very grateful and would highly recommend anyone who are thinking or planning on getting married to get themselves booked here, it was the best day of our lives. Thank you and much love to you guys from Mr & Mrs Gaffney xxxxxx

    Wow

    Wow, words cannot express how much we loved our day at you amazing venue! The setting was fantastic and the support we received from the staff was amazing throughout!
    Everything went perfectly and we could not have done it without your help Marie-Anne - especially when helping me solve some of my own last minute hiccups!
    Everyone of our guests commented on your beautiful grounds and the quality of service provided. And our weekend guests adored your beautiful cottages.
    You made the planning process so easy which really helped us to relax and enjoy the experience.
    Thank you sooo much and we can’t wait to share our photos once they arrive!
