History

The Kingston Estate is thought to be one of the best surviving examples of an 18th-century country gentleman's residence. The historic estate dates back to 1172, the original house situated where the current outbuildings lie on the West Drive. It was in 1735 that the magnificent Kingston House was constructed for John Rowe, a rich Catholic wool merchant. Over the years the property changed hands several times, each owner altering and adding to the estate, evidence of which remains to this day as markers of Kingston's history. In 1985 Michael and Elizabeth Corfield acquired the estate and began to restore the house to its former glory.

Many of the estate buildings are Grade II-listed with original Georgian features that create a wonderfully grand and historic feel. Walking in the formal garden is like stepping back in time; the flawlessly-trimmed hedges and perfectly planted trees look striking in any wedding photograph. Kingston Estate is now a family-run business helping couples to create the wedding of their dreams.

Reviews

  • Laura Bromley - 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!

  • Happy Bride - 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.

  • Kiera Lingham - 2019

    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.

  • Charlie Reid - 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.

  • Martin Butlin - 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.

  • Charlotte Stevens - 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

  • Max

    My Wife and I held our wedding at Kingston Estate in May 2017 and it absolutely was the venue of our dreams. The layout and format of the day flowed perfectly and all of our guests were so impressed with the venue and how organised Marie-Anne and the team made the day feel. Being able to spend the whole weekend there really enabled us to make the most of the celebrations. Thank you so much to Marie-Anne and co for a truly unforgettable time.

  • James

    As soon as we saw this place we knew it was the one. The house and grounds are stunning. Marie-anne organised everything perfectly for us. Cru caterers provided amazing food for the wedding breakfast and Harbour provided perfect entertainment in the evening. Our weekend went perfectly, we can't thank you enough.

  • Brigitte

    My husband and I got married at Kingston at the beginning of September and the day was beyond perfection. The venues appeal speaks for itself, the gorgeous walled garden, impeccably kept grounds, fabulous views from the wedding barn, unique character of The Undercroft and the superbly presented cottages. We can't thank Kingston enough for providing more than we could ever have dreamed of.

  • Marc and Chloe

    My Wife and I got married at Kingston Estate at the start of September. We had the most amazing wedding weekend and it was everything we had ever wished for. The venue has everything..... The Manor House, Gardens, Barn, Undercroft Nightclub just to name a few and all of which is maintained to an extremely high standard by Marie-Anne and the rest of The Kingston Estate Team. We both couldn't recommend Kingston Estate enough, and if you ever visit for a viewing you will struggle to leave without booking it for your own wedding ... It just has the WOW FACTOR !!!!!!
