Clyne Gardens

Clyne Castle, owned by wealthy William Graham Vivian, boasts stunning gardens with trees he planted, including a tall Wellingtonia and two Monterey Cypress. The estate's greatest influence came from Vivian's nephew, 'The Admiral', who sponsored plant expeditions.

Notable visitors like King Edward VIII and Stanley Baldwin graced the Castle. The oak woodland is a remnant of Clyne Forest, an 11th-century landmark. The gardens also hold the UK's tallest Magnolia and feature many hybrids named after the Admiral's family, like Rh, Graham Vivian, and Rh, Dulcie Vivian.
