The inside of the house is very interesting and there are plenty of volunteers to answer the questions. This may be a little dull for children, but they will find plenty to do in the extensive gardens and woodlands. There are plenty of games equipment provided, including quoits, croquet, skipping, and skittles. A walk in the woods is particularly pleasant... More

This is a delightful location and one of the smaller National Trust houses in the area. I loved the fact that the chap on the door greeted us in such a warm and friendly manner. We visited with my little niece and nephew and all the staff were friendly and helpful. Lots of lovely things to see and activities for... More

We had a great afternoon here today. We started by checking out the introductory talk times which was to be done outside the house and covered the house history and the family. I would highly recommend doing this. We then had a look at the kitchen garden with a fantastic selection of vegetables growing. We then listened to the aforementioned... More

It is a wonderful estate but it does not really stand out amongst all the other lovely National Trust treasures. We visited merely a week ago but it is so forgettable that I hardly remember what it was all about. So it is worth seeing but not going out of your way … As many other National Trust estates it...

Wandering through the gardens and house provided a very relaxing but informative afternoon. The staff were particularly welcoming and the provision of 'period' chairs for visitors to use dotted throughout the house and garden made a welcome change from that encountered in many N.T. properties. One is so familiar with pine cones and teazels usually found on chairs and seats... More

The Arts and Crafts style house is very nice. Tour was informative, but certainly for adults. Most of the adults in our group toured the house, while a couple of us took the kids on a walk through the grounds to the children's play area which was FANTASTIC. It's got a maze, stage, "fort", etc. They played there for a... More

So elegant. You get a sense of warmth and welcome when you enter the house. The history that goes with it is a wealth on its own. The staff are very knowledgeable and friendly. A walk through the gardens and woodland show a view which is truly spectacular. Such a beautiful house in wonderful surroundings. One not to be missed.

My wife and I love Arts & Crafts properties so finding that Standen was only 75 minutes away and an NT property as well meant we made a beeline for it. And very pleasant it is too. Friendly and knowledgeable staff added to the pleasure in a property where time has stood still. Add super gardens, a good restaurant and... More

Another NT property a smaller site but worth the visit. We arrived around 1.30 and were greeted at the entrance by a helpful lady who informed us that there would be a guided tour of the outside of the house very shortly. We parked up quickly and made our way to the house. The tour was fabulous pointing out the... More
