Visited this property in the height of the school holidays. Even so, found it very quiet and with enough room to not feel crowded. The house is set out well and is easy to follow. Each room has an information booklet, which gives basic info and "not to miss" furniture and nicknacks, without being too overwhelming. Each room is set... More

Easy to find and well signposted though it is, this Arts and Crafts inspired country house is actually quite secluded and you really feel like you are stepping back in time. It is not the most beautiful house of this age, appearing to have been selected from a number of odd parts but the details are good. Inside the rooms... More

As a NT member it was free, but otherwise it is £10:50 for an adult. There is ample parking and it was easy to find. The house is very interesting, especially if you have an interest in Arts and Crafts. The house isn't vast but we saw bedrooms, bathrooms, reading rooms, dining rooms etc all laid out as the family... More

My wife and I visited Standen whilst driving back home after travelling around NT/HHA properties in the past four days in Surrey/Sussex/kent and found it very interesting and informative. James Beale (Solicitor from Beale & Co Birmingham and London) and his wife Margaret purchased the estate in 1980 (formed from three farms) and started planting a 12 acre garden using... More

A very interesting look at wealthy life in the 1920s - plus an excellent & illuminating exhibition of the daughter's efforts as a nursing assistant during WW1. Lovely grounds full of picnicing families.

Lots of Morris and co/ / Sanderson wall Après and fabric. It had a wonderful homely atmosphere.. Unfortunately we only had a short time here. The garden was good as well.

Standen is an arts and crafts house with wonderful period detailing. Look particularly at the drapes, fire surrounds and wall coverings. Quite a few rooms are open and packed with interesting stuff and you can easily spend two hours or more looking round. The gardens are on a slope as the house is set into the side of a hill... More

A great place to visit just outside East Grinstead. An Arts & Crafts house, with views over the Ashdown Forest and Weirwood Reservoir. Lovely gardens to walk around and when you need too a place for coffee too

My wife and I are long serving members of the National Trust. We had never been to Standen before and found it to be a little jewel in the crown of the National Trust. The volunteers are really friendly. The house itself was a family home and you are allowed to go into most rooms without it all being roped... More
