Standen is an Arts and Crafts designed house with gardens and estate, South of East Grinstead in West Sussex.
This is a National Trust property with Arts and Crafts style décor built in the 1890s. The house features fine collections of ceramics, paintings, furniture, embroidery and textiles all from the Arts and Crafts period.
