National Trust Standen House & Garden
Arts and Crafts family home with Morris & Co. interiors, set in a beautiful hillside garden
Late Victorian family home brought vividly to life in this gem of the Arts & Crafts Movement.
Standen is hidden at the end of a quiet Sussex lane with breathtaking views over the High Weald and Weirwood Reservoir. The design of the house is a monument to the combined genius of architect Philip Webb and his friend William Morris. All the big names of the Arts & Crafts period are represented, including ceramics by William De Morgan and metalwork by W. A. S. Benson.
The beautiful hillside gardens provide year-round interest; the woodlands, a number of easily accessible walks.
