  • Avoid the Vyne during the wet days as the paths are just puddles and lots of mud. You will come home covered in mud with splashes up your clothes. The paths need better maintenance or it is like going...  more »

  • A nice place for families. The parking is free and there were lots places. You need to buy a ticket if you are not a national trust member. The views are fascinating. You can find some relaxing chairs close to the pond and enjoy. It has two lavatories in two different locations. You can find a place for children to play. The garden is beautiful and you can buy some of the products from potato to lavender. The mansion is simply elegant and it has a great history. Basically, it's like a museum. Also you can try some Victorian dresses. However, it was hard to find adult sizes. Staffs are friendly and helpful.
  • What a stunning yet artistically natural looking place. Lived the whole flower garden and the deck chairs by the river. The house was incredibly beautiful. Can't wait to go again. Also managed to purchase some great veg for our dinner 🥒🥕🍅
  • Ask for a map if they don't give you one. Great woodland walks for dogs 3 different course distances if you want to follow something. If you get a timed ticket for entry into the house it is really interesting. Lots of areas to picnic or a lovely cafe with a small area for children to play at.
  • This was a fantastic place to visit, beautiful house and gardens/grounds. My only comment would be that to have laminated cards in all the rooms would've been helpful as the guides were often talking with other visitors, at length, which is excellent, but holds others up. Just a suggestion.
  • The house has lots of pieces to look at but doesn't take too long to get through. Nice architecture. Beautiful gardens and places to walk. Also a nice place to have tea.
