Kingston Manor description

Kingston Manor is a truly impressive Grade II* Listed manor house dating back to 13th century, with many of its charming and fascinating period features maintained. For an occasion or group gathering, this magnificent house provides a special setting.

Inside, every detail of this grand house will take you back to a bygone era, but with every modern day convenience you could wish for. When you step inside, you’re sure to be amazed by the Great Hall with its roaring 17th century fireplace, oak panelled walls and flagstone flooring, all overlooking the stunning gardens. If you need more space, there is also a drawing room, a snug, conservatory and a formal dining room. Up the oak staircase you’ll find seven deluxe bedrooms and six bathrooms.

Outside, Kingston Manor is breathtakingly beautiful. The gardens have everything you could possibly dream of, from a private lake with an island, carp pond, a stone bridge and a wrought iron pergola with a thatched roof, there is so much to explore. The large courtyard is the perfect place to enjoy a meal outside, swim in the swim spa and the beech and lime tree lined drive is a wonderful picture opportunity.

When you want to explore more of the island and see some of the beautiful sights, you’ll find yourself in the perfect position at Kingston Manor. The Blue Flag Ventnor Beach is nearby, and if you fancy a day out with the family, Blackgang Chine theme park is just a five minute drive away. For walkers, the house is surrounded by rolling countryside and a variety of walks are available right from your doorstep, or for a meal out, Ventnor, Shanklin and Godshill are all within easy reach.
