News & Offers from Palace Farm Hostel

Kent Downs National Landscape

April 2nd 2024

The Kent Downs National Landscape follows the North Downs from the Surrey border to the sea cliffs at Dover. The chalk downs escarpment gives way to the flat and fertile lands of the Weald, famous for fruit growing and sometimes referred to as the ‘Garden of England’. The fast-disappearing traditional Kentish orchards and hop gardens together with the picturesque half-timbered villages and towns give a unique charm to this area. The North Downs Way and the Pilgrims Way offer routes to explore the landscape and Palace Farm Hostel offers hostel-style accommodation providing good value access to this National Landscape. Palace Farm Hostel is a relaxing, flexible 4* hostel on a family-run farm. Situated in the village of Doddington at the heart of the National Landscape.

Palace Farm Hostel achieved what they thought was impossible this year…

February 16th 2022

Although bike rides are lovely, seldom do they reap such wonderful and unexpected results.

Graham, manager at Palace Farm Hostel was out on a bike ride one day when he bumped into his local counciller at a village cafe, they got talking over lunch and Graham discovered his hostel was eligible for a Clean Growth Grant provided by the government!

In the weeks to follow, Graham and his hostel were awarded with the highest grant meaning he could build what he previously thought could only be a pipe dream! The hostel had funding to help build solar panels and an electric car charging point. Palace Farm Hostel is now the proud new owner of thirty 400w solar panels. Ten on the campsite toilet roof and twenty on a south facing hostel roof.

This had been on the hostel’s wish list for at least 10 years but due to the cost they thought it could never be achieved

Who could have thought such good fortune would have come from an ordinary bike ride!
