“A more then suitable place to stay for all types of guests”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2010

It doesn't matter if you are on a holiday, shortbreak or need a temporary place to stay because of work nearby, Palace farm offers all you need and more. Graham and Liz do their utmost to make your stay as pleasant as possible. With 2 children, us as parents and two grandparents, we stayed two nights at wintertime. The rooms were clean, the beds were nice and in the evening a cosy fire was lit for us in the livingroom. Graham did everything to set us up with a good meal and made several phonecalls around to make that happen. A great meal was served to us at "The Carpenters Arms" in Eastling, a nearby village, a pub and restaurant with a great atmosphere. All at reasonable prices. For us it's a perfect place to remember and definately first choice, should we decide to explore the Kent downs at summertime. Go find out yourselves!

I organised a father and son cycling half term break over a long weekend luckily the weather was great and Palace Farm Hostel was a great base from which to cycle from as there are some lovely rides straight from the hostel.

We stayed just one night at the end of a trip abroad and were very glad we did. It is the nicest hostel I have stayed at - extremely clean and the owners very friendly and helpful. We turned up early but were made very welcome. The rooms are lovely the beds comfortable and you even got a super continental breakfast with tea/coffee. Would definitely recommend. We cooked in the well equipped kitchen but there is a nearby pub (1/2 mile) that does reasonably priced food which we will try next time we are in the area.

We will definately stay here again, hostel is set in a gorgeous village, just 5 mins walk to a pub. Very clean, comfortable, owners very friendly and helpful, and they have pet goats (in an enclosure) and chickens with chicks so lovely for children. Nice and simple but modern and good facilities and tourist information. Good shower. Brilliant!!!!

I have stayed here many times. It is a great place to stay, it's clean and tidy, the owner is very friendly and breakfast is provided free. The hostel/B&B is located on a pretty countryside farm, it's very Eco-friendly and has the Green Tourism Gold certification.

It has a communal kitchen to cook your own food and a communal lounge with a dining area and a TV, Wifi is available at an extra cost.

I found this place after many hours of searching and the rates are by far the cheapest you are likely to find. Also, if there appears to be no rooms available, it is worth calling, as the owner can often do some rearranging and fit you in.
