Henry VIII met with his Lord Chamberlain William Sandys who owned The Vyne in 1535. This former Tudor palace turned 17th-century family home is set in 1500 acres of gardens, woodland and wetlands. As a major roof project unfolds, a lift-accessible rooftop walkway is scheduled to open in spring. Visitors can dive into the history of the house with an exciting new layout on the ground floor.

This will be a really good place to visit once the renovation is complete. Only ground floor rooms available at the moment. The grounds are lovely, with several choices of routes to walk.

Perhaps a damp day in February is not the best time to visit and in truth we did not do the place justice as we visited mid afternoon. That said I have no doubt that we’ll be back in finer weather and better dressed to explore the numerous walks that are available on the estate. The house is undergoing substantial... More

As a National Trust members we have visited quite a few sites which all have very similar facilities. The house is of some interest though we mainly visit for the grounds which are lovely to wander now the kids are older. The only downer is the frisbee/ball ban in the grounds which they say is in place to protect the... More

The £5.2 million reroof starts in March 2017 with public access to the scaffolding to view works with a fantastic 360degree view. Don't miss this once in a lifetime opportunity.

Just love this place. It's local to us and I have been several times. Plenty to see and the gardens are lovely. There is also vegetable gardens and chickens. Good food in the tea rooms. Love the fact you can have a picnic on the grand lawn over looking the lake. Wonderful woods further back to take the dogs for... More

The Vyne is a pleasant place to visit. There are som short walks around the gardens, past a lake with ducks. There is a decent playground, although it does have a water feature which can be muddy. The cafe is small but reasonable. There are a lot of nice woodlands surrounding the vyne. You do not have to pay to... More
