Mount Ephraim Gardens
We’re most well-known for our spectacular 10 acre Edwardian gardens. Our topiary garden, Japanese rock and water garden, arboretum and rose garden combine to create a charming experience – a monument to an age gone by.
We are also 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. No two visits are ever the same.
Mount Ephraim has been the family home of the Dawes family for over 300 years and this family touch that remains today, gives the gardens their personal charm.
We also have a beautiful tea room set in the West Wing Kitchen of the manor house, should you need refreshments mid-ramble.
