Nestled in the Sussex countryside with views across the High Weald, James and Margaret Beale chose an idyllic location to build their rural retreat. Designed by Philip Webb, Standen is one of the most complete examples of Arts and Crafts workmanship, with Morris & Co. interiors and a story of family life in 1925. Outside, Mrs Beales passion for gardening inspires a major restoration of her 12-acre hillside garden. Each garden room has a distinct character and offers something for every season from spring bulbs to autumn colour. Explore the wider estate with footpaths leading out into the woodlands. Close at 4pm November - January

If you are interested in the Arts and Crafts movement, or want to learn about it, this is the place to visit. It's a very nice house with many artifacts, knowledgeable volunteers and good eplanations of the furnishings.

Visited many times and there is always something different to see. Well worth a visit but not particularly easy for wheelchair users due to the shingle used on the paths.

An interesting house to walk around and great gardens to explore - if you have children be sure to go up the steps to the top garden and woodland play area. Don't miss Standen at tulip time !

On a sunny/dry day you could spend most of the day there. House is small but beautiful but the grounds are large with walks and ideal for a picnic. Hope that helps 😊
