Mount Ephraim Gardens is set in ten glorious acres of stunning Edwardian terraced gardens against a backdrop of the beautiful Kent countryside. These ten acres of gardens, set in the heart of an 800 acre estate have magnificent views over the Swale and Thames Estuaries.
The gardens feature a Japanese rock garden, water garden and lake, arboretum and a spectacular grass maze with a play area for children. They are also home to an extensive collection of spring bulbs, trees and shrubs including Rhododendrons, many types of Camelias and Magnolias.
The elaborate and unusual topiary with a miscellany of birds, animals and First World War memorabilia in clipped yew truly captures the imagination. The Millennium Rose Garden abundant with scented roses and a traditional herbaceous border complete this stunning area. Visitors can experience the sight of the Millennium Rose Garden in full bloom and the intoxicating colours and scents in mid summer.
The unique 'Miz Maze' creation, planted with ornamental grasses and herbaceous perennials is something to look forward to as the days get shorter with its dancing grasses and dramatic swirls of wild flowers, which are alive with pollinating insects and wildlife best seen as the summer draws to a close.
Mount Ephraim has been home to the Dawes Family for over 300 years and is a lasting monument to a more graceful and leisurely age. Every time of year at Mount Ephraim Gardens brings it own distinctive pleasures.
