Retaining its natural charm alongside modern accessibility and amenities, this wood-beamed country house boasts all you may require for a lovely wedding day. Set in the beautiful Purbeck Hills, the venue comprises 25 ensuite bedrooms, fully-equipped bar or reception area and a Grade II-listed 18th-century stone barn to hold your ceremony.

With a maximum seating capacity of 120, parties of all sizes are welcome. The owners believe in the individuality of each wedding, and thus plan your day according to your needs and personal requests. With breathtaking views stretching as far as The Isle of Wight, this splendid location offers a gateway to Dorset's natural beauty like no other.


Catering for as many as fifty visitors overnight, the quaint beginnings of the Courtyard originate from the 18th-century Tithe barn, now a historic listed building. Once a single bedroom for the busy farmer, the property was gradually extended room by room, until the construction and integration of the other accommodation buildings you see today.

Nowadays the barn itself is the stage for wedding ceremonies and receptions, as well as continuing in its time-honoured tradition of hosting guests from all over the country.


Along with the refurbished Tithe Barn comes a fully-equipped bar, licensed up until 12 midnight. Once the ceremony has been duly performed, the wedding party is welcome to move into the adjoining Eldon Suite for canapés, drinks and happy banter. There is disabled access to the Tithe Barn as well as to some of the venue's ensuite bedrooms.

The barn hosts up to 120 seated for the formal wedding breakfast, and once the tables are removed in readiness for a more informal evening of celebratory entertainment, it will accommodate over 50 more. Naturally, all members of the wedding party will have access to all of these facilities, as well as exclusive accommodation should they wish.


With over 20 years' experience in catering for large gatherings, the talented chefs can tailor a different menu for each wedding party, creating a new and delectable cuisine from fresh, locally-sourced produce. The bar comes fully-stacked, but should you wish to supply your own wine for the meal and toasts, there is a £10 plus VAT corkage fee per bottle (2017).


Among the 25 ensuites available, the house features a Bridal Suite offering stunning views over Swanage Bay from the comfort of its enormous four-poster bed. A special wedding package includes this grand room for two nights, saving £280 in the process.

    We got married at Kingston CC this winter and had the most amazing time! Bobbie, Lara and the whole team did everything they could to ensure the day ran smoothly. The venue looked amazing, the accommodation was beautiful and the food was absolutely delicious. From the early planning stages they helped us plan our dream wedding and were extremely flexible throughout, meaning the wedding was very personal and exactly what we wanted.

    We were treated like royalty throughout (the bridal party got breakfasts delivered to our room beforehand) and didn't have to worry about a thing - the staff really helped us to relax and enjoy our day as their amazing running of the day meant we had nothing to worry about! Throughout the entire evening and when tidying up at the end of the night, the waiting staff were friendly and incredibly diligent about their work.

    Thank you to all of you for everything - we will never forget you, the venue or our special day!

    I cannot speak highly enough of the venue and the whole team at KCC. From the initial visit to the actual weekend, we were wow'd from the beginning. Tim, Bobbie and Lara made the planning easy and understood all our needs, with their wealth of knowledge and experience, they made everything so simple.

    On the actual day, the venue looked amazing, the food was outstanding, the waiting and bar team were so helpful and organised to perfection! I thought organising a wedding was supposed to be stressful, I can honestly say that KCC made it so easy, it was a doddle! There is nothing I would change, I cannot recommend Kingston Country Courtyard highly enough, all of our guests loved it too, we have had so many comments about how great the day was. The whole experience was amazing, being able to add our own little elements too, made it even more special.

    We had the most perfect day here for our wedding.We have had so many comments about how lovely the venue was.

    The food was delicious and just what we'd wanted, the breakfasts are very good and there is lots on offer, the barn was perfect for our ceilidh, which was a huge success and the photographs have all come out beautifully.

    Our guests were all satisfied with their rooms. They are quirky, all slightly different and you feel like you're staying in an old Forge, or a barn or a cottage but they are all decorated and furnished nicely. And to be able to wake up next to those views is amazing! We were very sad to leave KCC the next day but hope to come and celebrate an anniversary one day. Thanks for the memories!
