The Vyne was built in the 16th century for Lord Sandys, Henry VIII´s Lord Chamberlain. The masterpiece of the building is the central staircase by John Chute, with its fluted columns, all decorated in blue and white. In the rooms is a wealth of old panelling and fine furniture. It also contains a Tudor chapel with Gothic vaulting, murals and fine Renaissance glass. In the grounds are lawns, herbaceous borders, lakes and an early summer house.

The Vyne is part of the following Editors' Picks:
"Marvel... King Henry VIII graced The Vyne with his regal presence on no less than three occasions. This stunning 16th century National Trust house is also home to a fearsome looking solid gold ring which wouldn’t look out of place around the neck of Golum! Dating back to the 4th or 5th century, the ring is said to carry a curse after it was stolen – and it is claimed that this provided the inspiration for Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings. If that wasn’t enough name dropping, the beautiful grounds with ornamental lake, walled garden and ancient woodland also inspired the works of Jane Austin."
