About
Mount Ephraim Gardens is a family owned estate set in ten acres of stunning Edwardian terraced gardens against a backdrop of the beautiful Kent countryside. Explore the gardens, relax in the Tea Room or stay in the Manor House. Highlights are the elaborate and unusual topiary, Millennium Rose Garden and a traditional herbaceous border. The gardens also feature a Japanese rock garden, water garden and lake, arboretum and a spectacular grass maze with a small play area - an ideal spot for picnic. No visit is complete without lunch or tea in the West Wing Tea Room. With five B&B Guest Rooms, each individually decorated and with incredible views over the estate, ensuite bathroom, flatscreen TVs and tea and coffee making facilities, it's the perfect country retreat. Wake up in the Manor House, enjoy a sumptuous breakfast and have the gardens to yourself before visitors arrive from 11am. Mount Ephraim is also available for weddings, corporate events, filming and photo sessions.

A pleasant afternoon walking around these gardens. With a stop at the cafe, enjoying a cup of tea, sitting overlooking the gardens.

A fabulous place to stay and hosted by super friendly people. The room overlooking the topiary garden was perfect as was the full English breakfast. Highly recommended

Glad to be back
Aug 2021
Had not visited for nearly 30 years! Not a lot had changed , but that meant we could wander and enjoy the space and all the different aspects of the extensive parkland and garden borders. Rose gardens , deep herbaceous borders, lake bridges MizMaze …all to be checked out. Just try to avoid a day when intensive noisy hedge trimming is taking place ! The topiary benefits but not one’s quiet enjoyment of a wonderfully placed park and garden. PS be kind and patient while waiting for food orders …

A garden of views!
Jul 2021
Lovely to walk round with wide variety of species, especially trees; there are wild gardens, rose gardens, and arboretum and a cottage garden too. Easily affordable for a family and plenty of space for the kids to run around. The bird song in the arboretum was magical.

Large and varied garden.
Jul 2021 • Couples
Extensive gardens with considerable work still being done, e.g. recent arboretum and a most unusual herbaceous maze. Keeping such a large garden is a challenge as some areas rather weedy.

A lovely experience
Jun 2021
The walk round the lake is lovely, also rockery, arboretum. All parts enjoyable, the rose garden is superb at this time of year, as is the herbaceous border. I should have liked a key to the various topiary shrubs so that we knew what they were meant to represent. One sad thing that has been added since my last visit is the chicken wire surrounding the flower beds. Is this really necessary? It looks hideous and does nothing to add to the aesthetics of the garden. Please remove! Nice cakes and tea at the tea room (outside).
