The Owner Says
We are one of the few campsites in Kent which allow fires in fire pits on site. We have a toilet block with showers and washing up area there are no charges for hot water. If you are looking to party this is not the site for you, Palace Farm is a quiet campsite, we expect peace and quiet after 10pm and those making excessive noise after 11 pm will be asked to leave without a refund. Our Hostel is a Green Tourism Gold Award winner and we are proud to also offer natural and sustainable tourism at our small campsite in Kent. As such camp fires in fire pits are allowed but please burn wood only. We ask our visitors to respect the surrounding countryside and so we do have a strict rule of not gathering wood from the hedges and trees around the campsite or from the local countryside. Logs from our local woodman are available for purchase. We do not allow fireworks or Chinese lanterns to be launched from Palace Farm.
