Fodor's Expert Review Standen House

Hever Castle Historic Home

A well-preserved family country house dating from the 1890s and set in a beautiful hillside garden, Standen typifies the Arts and Crafts movement. Designed by the influential architect Philip Webb (1831–1913), it contains a wealth of William Morris carpets, wallpapers, fabrics, and even original electric-light fittings. Look out for the particularly beautiful Mother of Pearl cabinet. The house is 12 miles southwest of Hever, just across the Kent–West Sussex county line.
