Mount Ephraim Gardens
Explore sloping orchards, ancient woodland and enjoy sea views in the 800 acres of this tranquil estate that has been home to the Dawes family for over 300 years. Visit ten acres of stunning Edwardian terraced gardens and enjoy the spectacular views of the Kent countryside and the River Thames’ estuaries. There are plenty of benches to sit on and admire the views.
Take in the sights of the large collection of spring bulbs and shrubs such as rhododendrons, camellias and magnolias, and delight in the water features and topiaries. In mid-summer visit the Millennium Rose Garden and find pleasure in the intoxicating colours and scents of these wonderful flowers.
Enjoy the tranquillity of the Japanese gardens and if you feel like a challenge, walk through the wildflower and grass maze where you will see an array of colourful flowers swirling and dancing in the wind. Afterwards sit back and relax on the Edwardian room terrace with a cup of tea and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.
