The VynePosted on 17th January 2012
Follow in the footsteps of Henry VIII and visit the 16th-century Tudor house and estate of National Trust-owned The Vyne - and if you delve a little deeper into the fascinating history, you'll discover the attractive gardens and grounds.
Featuring an ornamental lake, delightful woodlands and flourishing wetlands, The Vyne gardens are a haven for wildlife and water fowl which can be observed from the bird hide.
You'll also find our steel fruit cages - both the standard walk-in version and two stunning peak roof decorative cages - along with a rare public example of one our angled bespoke fruit cages, designed and manufactured to fit specifically into an awkward location. This bespoke cages offers a great insight into our manufacturing capabilities and also highligts the fact that no space is 'unsuitable' for a cage!
Inside the house, dramatic improvements and changes over the centuries have made The Vyne a fascinating microcosm of changing fads and fashions. The house is filled with an eclectic mix of fine furniture, portraits, textiles and sculpture.
The Vyne is situated around 4 miles from the M3 motorway near Basingstoke and is easiy accessible from London, Surrey, Sussex, Kent, Berkshire and Dorset.
