Every element outstanding. Each detail has been thought of, even down to the beautiful coat hangers. Highlights for us include: Beautiful 'high end' fixtures, fittings, decoration, and furniture; The most comfortable beds and beautiful linen; White company toiletries; exceptional breakfast; wonderful welcome and service from hosts. Absolutely faultless, luxury, and a real treat. We will be back. Thank you

My wife and I had an outstanding weekend at Kingston House. As hosts Jill and Warren couldn't have been anymore attentive or helpful.
