I live close to the vyne but only recently visited for the first time, we all loved it, fantastic park, lots of space for the kids to run around. The cream tea is very good.

Decided to visit The Vyne as it is fairly close by - lovely house with a beautiful chapel and the gardens were pretty with a river and ducks and swans.

We spent a morning here looking round the house and walking in the grounds and along the river. Deck chairs along the river bank so you can sit and relax . With the ducks walking round you.

Spent a lovely few hours wandering around the house, gardens and woodland area. The roof has recently been replaced and looks amazing. Staff are very informative. We had a light lunch which was delicious. Very pleasant all round and will be back.
