Standen House and Garden West Hoathly Road
East Grinstead

RH19 4NE
England

Standen is a fine show-piece of the late 19th-century Arts & Crafts Movement, featuring rich William Morris textiles and wallpapers, complemented by contemporary furniture, ceramics and pictures of the time. Philip Webb, friend of William Morris, designed this family house in the 1890s. It is decorated throughout with Morris carpets, fabrics and wallpapers, complemented by contemporary paintings, tapestries and furniture. Standen boasts a beautiful hillside garden with wild flowers, azaleas, rhododendrons, roses, ferns, an orchard and croquet lawn. There is a five year garden restoration project currently underway to restore Mrs Beale's original Arts & Crafts garden. Visitors can find out about this through tours, talks and a display in the Potting Shed. There are also lovely walks through two ancient woodlands, Rockinghill and Hollybush and tours to the top of the Water Tower on selected days.
