Palace Farm Campsite is a quiet, tent only campsite in the heart of the Kent Downs AONB. There are good free toilet and shower facilities which are friendly to the environment with all low energy lighting.
Camping is on 25 pitches in a lovely quiet green field with nature and it's wildlife as neighbours. We ask all guests to respect the peace and quiet, unfortunately we can't guarantee that Green Woodpeckers, Little Owls, Pheasants, other wildlife and our chickens will do the same! Campfires allowed only in fire pits hired from us, book early to avoid disapointment, we sell locally produced logs by the bag, Charcoal and kindling.
