  • Book Online
  • Dog/Pet Friendly

Everyone who's been here remembers the first time they saw Elvey Farm. It's at the end of a twisting, winding little lane, nestled amongst 75 acres of farmland in the prettiest countryside in Kent.

As far as the eye can see, there are fields, orchards and hills, with Pluckley's church spire in the distance.

 

There's been a Guest house here since the 1980s, but Elvey Farm has been around much longer. The Hall House was built in the Middle Ages, and the Stable Block, which is part of the Guest house, has been at the heart of the farm for centuries.

 

Whether you're sipping champagne on the verandah outside your suite, or you're exploring Pluckley's charming village square and shops, you'll be surrounded by the quietest, the most idyllic countryside in Kent.

 

But this is no ordinary Guest house. Elvey's accommodation has been renovated to the highest standards. Expect stylish contemporary bathrooms in the Stable Block, fully renovated rooms with every comfort, and friendly, personal service. At breakfast you have fresh eggs, sausages and crispy bacon from local farms, and Kentish Ground Coffee from Pluckley's very own tea and coffee factory. And in the evenings, you can sample wine or cider from Kent's vineyards. Elvey has been a part of Pluckley village life for centuries.

 

That's why we say Elvey is Kentish to the core.

 

In January 2007, owners Jeff Moody and Simon Peek bought the property, along with six acres - and have renovated the guest accommodation, to create the standard of stylish boutique hotel, with the informality of a small guest house.

 

Come and experience the magic of this ancient farmstead. We have seven rooms, and plenty of space for you to call your own.

We welcome people from all walks of life!
