The Garden Guide

Kingston House

Built in 1735, Kingston House is rich in history and many of the original features survive. The Kingston Estate has extensive grounds and gardens. The formal gardens include a Court Garden with authentic eighteenth century planting, Rose Garden (best in June/July), Walled Garden and Walled Vegetable Gardens. Produce from from the kitchen gardens and orchards are used in the hotel dining room. The hotel gardens themselves are open 4 times a year under the NGS. Kingston House is a good base for visiting a number of gardens including Dartington Hall Garden (4 miles), Overbeck's Museum and Garden (24 miles) and Castle Drogo Garden (26 miles).
