Mount Ephraim too, the favourite lounge and drive of the fashionable frequenters of the Wells, appears determined to recover its ancient renown. It has long been celebrated for lodging-houses and private residences of the first class, possessing very extensive views of the Kent and Surrey hills. A new hotel has been erected here, the prospect from which can be surpassed by few in the kingdom.
