Guided tour very interesting. A lovely house. Gardens were nice but the Quarry Garden was closed, disappointingly. more »

This is a National Trust property. Built at the end of the 19th century with one of William Morris' closest friends, Philip Webb, as architect, the house is archetypical of the Arts and Crafts Movemen... more »

One of the best National Trust places! Open during winter as well, which is a bonus! The Trust and the volunteers here really make an effort, there's a pianist on the weekends and loads of different tours. We recently went on the Tower tour (only available when the bats aren't nesting), the tour was run by volunteers and was truly excellent, getting to see bits of the house that aren't normally accessible and understand just how advanced the house was for its time! It's also great to see how the rooms change, the dining room is set for different meals on different days and the "Standen at Christmas" was wonderful to see. There are loads of walks around as well, we adore coming here and will continue to do so!
I couldn't stop taking photos here. It is a marvelous setting whose owners had enough taste (and money) to make it a poster child for Arts and Crafts. The gardens are a perfect complement to the house. One can also get a decent meal in the cafe.
Wonderful house and grounds. Large formal gardens and extensive walks to choose from across woods and fields. Excellent café/restaurant where many hot dishes are prepared using homegrown produce.
A nice NT property house and Gardens to walk around. Events are posted via there website or the app. If you enjoy gardens or old historic properties it's one for you.
Had a great afternoon here with our dog. We came in our motorhome and found the access tight and parking could definitely be a problem if it's busy. Perhaps a phone call to check for space if you have a large vehicle. The staff / volunteers were all lovely and helpful with any question we had. Take time in the house and just stand and look. There's so much to take in each room. The arts and crafts soft furnishings especially but there are also fine Japanese block prints, some nice clocks and 3 pianos. Maggie Beale's study gives a nice feel of how she worked too. All round a nice afternoon with plenty to see and think about.
