Mount Ephraim Gardens, near Faversham

Mount Ephraim Gardens, near Faversham

Enjoy a guided tour of Mount Ephraim Gardens and Manor House. The topiary garden, rock and water garden, arboretum and rose garden combine to create a charming experience.

For over 300 years the Dawes family have lovingly cared for the house and gardens and today they present one of the breathtaking spots in the south-east of England. 10 acres of classical gardens lie within an 800-acre farm with stunning views of the surrounding countryside. Sitting at the top of the hill is the late-Victorian manor house, featuring the West Wing Kitchen and impressive, sweeping staircase into the main hall.

 

First laid out in the early 1900s, the gardens suffered through wartime neglect and damage from use by the army. However, in the early 1950s Mary and Bill Dawes poured their hearts and souls into restoring them – with Mary involved heavily in the day-to-day running until her death in 2009 at the dignified age of 93. It’s this family touch that lends Mount Ephraim Gardens their personal charm.

 

Today, the gardens continue to be cared for  under the instruction of Lesley Dawes, who has taken over the overall management of the gardens from her Mother-in-Law. Lesley has lived at Mount Ephraim for 25 years and has a great love for the gardens and the willingness and energy to take forward the legacy that Mary has left behind. Now home to an extensive collection of spring bulbs, trees and shrubs including Rhododendrons, many types of Camelias and Magnolias. Full of intoxicating scents and sights, the gardens offer something different throughout spring, summer and into autumn.
