The Vyne

16th-century house and estate reflecting changing styles and tastes over 500 years

Built in the early 16th century for Lord Sandys, Henry VIII’s Lord Chamberlain, the house acquired a classical portico in the mid-17th century (the first of its kind in England) and contains a fascinating Tudor chapel with Renaissance glass, a Palladian staircase and a wealth of old panelling and fine furniture. The attractive grounds feature herbaceous borders and a wild garden, with lawns, lakes, one of the earliest summerhouses and woodland walks. A newly developed wetlands area attracts a diversity of wildlife
