relaxing place to just enjoy nature and reflect on life.

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

This gorgeous place is one of my favourite places in this country. With stunning grounds, a gorgeous lake and a beautiful house, this is a gem of a place. Particularly in the summer, the lake is a stunning place to relax in front of with a picnic and a good book. There are always events going on & the Eater... More

We visited on a very chilly and misty day with friends and their children. The grounds are lovely and great for walking. The scenery is stunning. The cafe is good. The play area for the children isn't as good as other National Trust properties we've been to but it was OK. We didn't go inside the house this time but... More

Whether you want a stroll through the gardens or the longer walks through Morganston woods The Vyne provides a great starting point. It provides a wonderful place to relax by the lake in the summer and being the National Trust you can rely on its shop and tea rooms.

I went with my Brother in Law for a visit to this amazing building on November 8th. Travellers beware. Due to major refurbishments only half of the building is open. Fine, maintenance has to be done. However it is beyond my ken as to why we were still charged the full admission fee of £13 for a half tour. The... More
