The house was decorated in 1920s style, absolutely delightful lots of William Morris designs. It was a family house until the 1970s and still has a warm, homely feel. The house was dressed up for Christmas, beautiful. All the National Trust volunteers were helpful and knowledgeable. One gentleman was playing the piano in the drawing room, mulled cider and biscuits... More

As NT members we see a lot of properties, but this wonderful house was decorated as for a 1920s Christmas. The room guides were friendly, informative and not overbearing, so the experience was very relaxing. It was such a pleasure to see something other than the 18th and 19th century dressing the rooms in other houses often have. There was... More

This National Trust property is really peaceful with fantastic views from the garden walk. The house is very homely and the day we visited there was a man playing wonderful music on the piano. Well worth a visit.

As we live locally we have been here many times. On the face of it it looks quite small but once you start exploring there is a lot to find. If you have young children definitely make the trip to the play area. It's not as far as it looks on the map.

Forget the usual fusty offerings of dour portraits, antique furniture and threadbare rugs. This grand house was purpose built and furnished in that fascinating 'arts & crafts' style. Every room is a study in that late 19th early 20th century fashion. Often, with grand houses, it's the kitchens and butlers pantry that give the most insight to the way of... More

Great Arts and Crafts house featuring the works of William Morris. A lovely day out with a gift shop and restaurant and open to National Trust members for free. Good walks in the woods and activities for kids in the summer.

This National Trust property is great for Arts & Crafts lovers. It was designed by Philip Webb & helped by William Morris. The wallpaper & textiles are William Morris. It has a very homely feel to it. Nice walks around the gardens & woodland.

Really like standen. The house itself is really interesting and is especially magical when they do it up for Christmas in a 1930s style with all the curtains drawn. They have just done an area for children in the woods which is kind of a natural playground so den building, tents, things to climb on- we all enjoyed it. What... More
