Unpretentious and peaceful camping in an underrated spot

The cockerel may crow or the goats may mutter as you enter Palace Farm, but that’s as noisy as it gets here. It’s a quiet old place, off the beaten track (but not far from some very worthwhile places to visit) and with a 10pm quiet rule that’s largely respected.

It’s a simple set-up: a flat, grassy field holds up to 25 tents around its hedgerow edges, with an adjoining field left free for games or general haring around. Two pre-erected bell tents provide the slightest hint of camping glamour, but this is good, honest Kentish camping with no pretensions to be anything else.

Don’t confuse quietness with strictness, though. Campfires are allowed, campers can help themselves to plums from the orchard or blackberries from the old hedgerows around the farm, and edible mushrooms are permitted to grow prolifically across the site in the autumn. (We’re told they’re not hallucinogenic which, apparently, is a good thing.) While you’re hunting and gathering, have a forage at the honesty shop, where zero-food-mile courgettes, pumpkins, and other seasonal veg are available fresh from the farm.

Busy days, quiet nights. Life’s good at Palace Farm.
