For over 300 years the Dawes family has 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 which are open to the public lie within an 800-acre farm with stunning views of the surrounding countryside.

Mount Ephraim Country House is a late Victorian Grade II listed manor house. It was originally built in 1695, rebuilt in 1878 and then extended in 1913 when the West Wing was added. Five guest bedrooms, aptly named after their former inhabitants, are now available to book. All are beautifully decorated with flat screen TVs, tea and coffee making facilities and hairdryers.

Mount Ephraim is in the charming village of Hernhill with two local pubs within walking distance and ideally located near the market town of Faversham, the seaside town of Whitstable and the cathedral City of Canterbury.

Come stay with us and enjoy what the estate has to offer – and if you’re interested in holding your wedding or event here, get in touch. We’re very flexible and accommodating.

On-site free parking, WiFi.
