The drive to Mt. Ephraim is worthwhile in itself as the surrounding countryside is almost a snapshot of rural Kent of yesteryear. it has a 1940s feel with narrow high hedge lined lanes, oasthouses and idyllic farmyards. Mt. Ephraim itself comprise the old family manor house which is grand but not spectacular. The grounds, however, are gorgeous with tree and... More

Having performed many Shakespeare Plays teres over the years I thought it a good idea to remind myself of the charm of these olde gardens with the lake. Very pleasing to stroll down the pathways following the stream over the Eastern style graden bridge to the lake then around and back up the other side to the top with its... More

Having recently moved to the area this is now a favourite place to go. Lovely setting with some formal gardens, a beautiful rockery, lake and wooded area. Maze and small play area for children. Excellent cafe with great views, not too pricey. Also good craft centre, but not always open. We went in the week and very few other people... More

We were looking for places to go with dogs in Kent and this was one of the only gardens which allowed them. The beautiful gardens took us around 1.5 hours to 2 hours to walk around before going to their coffee shop which had some very delicious cakes! When you start your walk around the gardens you are given a... More

I hadnt ventured herw before, been to most other garens in the area. Not sure how this one slipped me by. There werent many people there, so maybe its not well known? The japanese garden is one of the best Ive seen outside japan, and ive been to kyoto. Its easy to miss, as you pass through its top end... More

Our pleasure here was enhanced by it being a lovely sunny day and the gardens being nearly deserted. We had packed a small picnic which we ate whilst overlooking the tennis courts. The views around are spectacular and breathe taking. Next time we will eat on the bench alongside the lake. Due to the remoteness of the gardens the area... More

We visited here on a beautifully hot sunny day (for a change in the UK). The gardens were fabulous with lots of information scattered about plus a basic map (which is all we needed). Our first stop was the tearoom in which we both had Victoria sponge, which was delicious (although a tiny bit dry but we were there quite... More

We were there for the New Day festival and found the surroundings stunning, as was mentioned by many of the artist that were there as well. we intend to go back and visit the gardens as the lake was off limit because it was behind the stages and the ponds/water feature were cordoned off and not working. Yes in parts... More

We went as part of the New Day Music festival which was held in the gardens, had I made a special visit just for the gardens I think I would have been slightly dissapointed. The trees are nice, and the terrace gardens too, the high light was the Rose garden which was a delight to the sense of smell and... More

Interesting venue. Lovely grounds, although a bit too many don't signs for my liking. The biggest issue was leaving, wholly inadequate lighting from Arena for about 300-500 yards until you get to the Orchard area. Very steep slopes with brick steps and absolutely no light. At 2230 most of the concert goers leaving were 60+ really not good Otherwise a... More
