We had to book something at the very last minute due to a cancellation of a weekend to Prague and I was delighted to find availability here at an extremely good price. What a gem this place is. We were shown to the Sevenoaks suite, which was right next to the entrance, by a lovely young lady and on first impressions we were really impressed. We've stayed in some very lovely (and pricey) places before and this was definitely on a par with anywhere we've stayed before.
Yes, you could hear the neighbours chatting a little but it didn't matter, as I doubt you get any rowdy types here!
We spent a tranquil hour or so in the bar by the roaring log fire, listening to Xmas music and testing the local wine (highly recommended). When I mentioned I was a little peckish, the charming man serving us, brought me up some delicious little mince pies.
I don't want keep waffling on about how lovely this place is, so will just say: gorgeous soft bed linen, fab nights sleep, fluffy big towels, idyllic surroundings and delicious food. We will be back and the hardest decision will be which room to try out next!! Thanks so much for giving us a treat after our disappointment of not being able to get to Prague! This certainly helped make up for it!!

I booked Elvey a month or so ahead, together with a table in the restaurant, as a pre Christmas night away for my wife and I, leaving dogs and teenage girls at home. And what a treat! Everything went exactly to plan, a quick and easy journey from our home in Surrey, a nice welcome despite us being early and a wedding in progress and a lovely room in the stable block (Faversham). Our room was comfortable, clean, peaceful and atmospheric with its mood lighting. We chilled in the room, took a short walk, showered in the fab spacious shower and enjoyed a bottle of bubbly in the room before moving on to a sumptuous dinner. The service was perfect, helpful and friendly, the venison the best I have ever had, the wine perfect. We retired to the bar with full bellies for a nightcap in front of the fire and then back to our comfy bed. It was very peaceful and we slept like logs! A leisurely breakfast was as others have said, beautifully cooked and presented using the best local ingredients.
So Elvey matched up very much to our expectations in comfort, service, style and food. Maybe next time we will bring dogs or even children, then again we might just keep it as a little hide away for pampering ourselves. We will be back though!
Thanks so much to the friendly staff and the calm environment that has been created at Elvey farm.

We stayed at Elvey Farm in Sept. for 6 nights. We had the Penhurst suite for the first 5, then moved into the stables area since our room was already booked.
We had a wonderful time. Simon, Elsie and John with the rest of the staff could not have been more welcoming or accommodating. It's location is in a great part of Kent, as we wanted to see as much of Kentish countryside as we could. Pluckley and Elvey Farm are really situated well in the middle of things.
Our room was lovely. Very large. The food here for dinner was wonderful. We had breakfast here every morning, but found ourselves coming back for dinner at night as it was so great. I love that Simon sources food, coffee, juices etc. from local Kent suppliers.
I would recommend Elvey Farm highly and plan to come back in the future!

Room Tip: The suites are a bit more, but definitely worth it.

Stayed here for 1 night on our way home, what a lovely place to end our holiday in the UK!

The whole place looks lovely and the room was beautiful as well! What I really liked was that the room is divided, there's the sleeparea and a sitting-area. The sitting-area is really relaxing with a sofa, TV and some provided magazines. There is a stable door, and it's really nice to sit there with the door open. You have a lot of privacy and space in your room!

The staff was really friendly, and dogs are welcomed with a treat, very nice!

The restaurant was not cheap but certainly good! It gives you a real treat to eat here, they really try to the best they can, with fresh flowers and fresh local food!

This is certainly a good place if you want a relaxing, comfortable break! All in lovely countryside style!

We stayed at Elvey Farm for one night on Monday 4th November. Our stay was through a Red Letter Day voucher and because of the reasonable price of the voucher we were expecting average accommodation......we couldn't have been more wrong! Elvey Farm is a beautiful secluded place and so unique. We should have been in a standard room but they upgraded us for free to a stable suite (Sevenoaks) and it was gorgeous! Huge bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and a small living area with TV and sofa. The wooden beams, exposed brickwork and stable door all added to the character of this clean, beautifully decorated suite. We booked in for dinner at 7pm that evening in the restaurant and we are so glad we did as I can honestly say it was one of the most delicious meals I have ever eaten! The portion sizes were generous, and the flavours were so fresh. I can highly recommend the Baked goats cheese and the pork chop - our compliments go to the chef for such a wonderful meal. The breakfast was also delicious and the perfect end to a wonderful stay. All the staff we encountered were so friendly and helpful and made the stay so enjoyable. We will definitely be going back again and recommending to all our family and friends.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Sevenoaks stable suite and it was right by the restaurant. It was a large and spac...

We have visited Elvey farm on a few occasions now, I have only wonderful things to say about it. The staff cannot do enough for you, they make you feel more like friends, the food is exceptional. My favorite being the goats cheese starter.. We stayed this time in the Penshurst suite, it is such a unique room, warm, perfectly decorated and very clean.( with a massive bath) I would go back in a heartbeat. Highly recommended. x
