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

Great for William Morris design whilst sharing a lovely family atmosphere. The house, particularly the morning room and the library, is absolutely lovely. Gardens too are delightful and there are many walks to be had. Really worthwhile day.

Unlike many NT properties, I kept thinking "how nice it would be to live here". The garden restoration is another plus, and many of the borders and potted plants seemed to be at their best even in late September.

Visited here many years ago so had forgotten how beautiful the house was inside. The kitchen gardens are new since I last visited . The outside of the house is not particularly attractive but the inside makes up for that. Didn't visit the restaurant so can't comment on that. Certainly a beautiful example of the arts and craft movement
