Photo appeal for the Fallen Bridge

The Coach House shop at The Vyne, Hampshire

Shopping at The Vyne in spring 

As the days lengthen and temperatures begin to rise, you can shrug off the thicker layers and venture out to The Vyne’s coach house. Nestled inside its historic walls, the shop showcases spring homeware, indulgent food, garden accessories, children’s goodies, practical outdoor gear, pet care essentials and fashion must-haves. A fresh new ‘Riverlands’ range draws inspiration from the waterways in the trust’s care.

Our volunteers recommend their favourite books and authors 

We asked our bookshop volunteers to recommend their favourite book or author. Keen readers, they all agree that getting lost in a good book is one of life’s joys, and one of the reasons why they volunteer at The Vyne.
