Standen house is one of my favourite NT places. Second visit today. This wonderfull property feels like the family have gone out for the day and allowed visitors. Since my last visit i am pleased to see the servants wing being developed as the 'upstairs downstairs ' experience of these properties is fascinating to me. The volunteers at Standen are... More

This is a lovely National Trust property that is being lovingly restored and enhanced by a fabulous team of volunteers. The grounds are varied, with a croquet lawn complete with equipment, and a small pavillion that is lovely for a picnic spot, the main lawn, and woodland are well managed. With a fabulous play area at the end of the... More

Some National Trust properties are laid out like museums, and you wander through rooms marvelling at furniture and paintings but never get a feel for the lives that were lived there. At Standen it is as though the owners just stepped outside, one sunny day in 1925, and might return any minute. A pair of shoes kicked carelessly under a... More

Standen has a nice picnic area located at the end of the car park, overlooking a large reservoir. Plenty of tables, but not many bins. The house and gardens are beautiful with stunning views of the countryside. I would not recommend travelling to Standen by Metrobus 84, as there is a long walk from the main road entrance down the...

Visited the grounds and house on a wednesday. Although we couldn't picnic because of the weather, the house is interesting. Not the most memorable house I've visited, but lovely and worth it on the Tourist National trust card.

We had a wonderful tour of Standen: my husband and I really enjoy William Morris' work and the Arts and Crafts movement and we were thrilled by the house, the helpful room guides, and the written data. The National Trust always does a wonderful job with education on site but the staff at Standen were just superbly helpful and informative.... More

As a National Trust member I am keen to maximise the use of my cards when the weather is so glorious. We visited Standen and were not disappointed, the house is impressive and the grounds are plentiful to walk around, have a picnic and explore. We had our picnic on the terrace to the side of the house which afforded... More

House was small but interesting. Gardens are a work in progress. Ok if you are a National Trust member but otherwise expensive.
