Well worth a visit. Lovely old house which is very well maintained. Gardens are beautiful and well cared for. Most of the fruit and vegetables served in the cafe are from the garden here. Cafe food is delicious ! Staff very friendly in all areas.

Unfortunately we chose a very wet day to visit and the car park is a little way from the entrance. However, undeterred we enjoyed our sojourn in this lovely house. In typical National Trust fashion the furnishings are not original but are period. This gives the impression of an almost perfect home in which one could happily live. So despite... More

A wonderful example of arts and crafts architecture, full of period furniture, ceramics, tapestries, paintings and other crafts. Early examples of electric lighting are particularly interesting, and there is currently a small but fascinating exhibition of embroidery. The gardens are delightful, and include a large working kitchen garden, a shady, damp quarry with ferns and azaleas, and currently borders full... More

At Standen it was raining a bit, and we had a quick run round the tulips, a bit the worse from the wind. Curious were the ’tulip trees’. These were tulips set into bushes which gave the impression that they were arboreal. As I have been here before and reviewed it, no more to add.

We loved this beautiful place as a whole family. The house I must say is the most warm inviting property NT own that we've been to. You feel like the family had just popped out for the day! Chickens out in the gardens where veg had all been planted made our youngest Son very entertained. Workers all so friendly and... More

Having a keen interest in the Arts and Craft movement, I was very excited at the prospect of visiting this property whilst on holiday in Sussex. I found it very disappointing. Everything on paper looks promising - Philip Webb designed, Morris & Co furnishing, pre-Raphaelite artwork, De Morgan ceramics - but all aspects were underwhelming. The design of the house... More
