Standen itself is an unattractive house and the gardens aren't special. However, if you are a William Morris fan you'll love the interiors. The National Trust café is fun and worth a visit, as is the quaint little shop. If you are a National Trust member already Standen is perhaps worth a visit, but if you have to pay to... More

If you go to standen make sure you park at the bottom car park and go on the trail through the deep woods which is nice as not a lot if people know about that! There is a bridge, stairs, benches, we pretend we are looking out for the fairies and the trolls when we go. It's a lovely family... More

Maybe it's better to come in the summer when the gardens are prettier. The house belonged to a solicitor so not much interesting history. The food in cafe looked congealed and horrible. Wouldn't return. There are much nicer national trust places to visit.

There are lovely pieces by William Morris and William de Morgan. An arts and crafts lover should definitely visit. The gardens are wonderful too. A must for National Trust members

Although it is not far away, Standen had not been visited until Xmas 2014 when we went there on a whim one afternoon to see the house decorated for Christmas - this was a really good time to see the house - beautifully decorated for the season and interesting to wander around. It wasn't the weather to explore the gardens... More

There's not much to do on a damp drizzly morning in January but stay warm and nest. Standen offers something different and pretty impressive it was too. For the first time the National Trust has opened it's most popular attractions during the winter to show visitors a behind the scenes tour. I'd never visited before, don't know why but so... More

Family day out to Standen House at Xmas is a must. The house was dressed so lovely and the staff really seemed pleased to be there even though most folk are on holiday. It was to cold to do much walking in the gardens, so we will return in the summer as I can imagine they will be beautiful. The... More

Standen is a lovely National Trust property, it has the feeling that the owners have just nipped out for a pint of milk. It's not a large house by National Trust standards but it is an excellent place to spend a half day. Lots of quaint beautifully (but not extravagantly) decorated rooms containing some exceptional furniture and objects, in particular... More

Typical NT house, fairly easy to get to, although the drive to the car park is a bit bumpy and you have to walk back up to thehouse. The welcome as you drive in is very friendly and most of the staff are very helpful and informative. The usual NT fare in the barn (take a warm coat in winter)... More
