William Morris famously said, "Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful." It is with this same philosophy that we present The Morris Apartment, decorated in an appropriate Arts & Crafts style on the second floor of this family house.

Things to see and do nearby

South East England

The dense population of the south-east of England may not make it the obvious choice for a holiday destination, but that's to under-estimate or overlook many of its hidden charms. The Isle of Wight may well be the most obvious holiday destination in the area and the short ferry crossing really does take you to a unique holiday destination. Further east, the scenery is varied yet distinctive with the South Downs rolling down to the cliffs at Beachy Head, the sparsely wooded heathland of the Ashdown Forest and the intricate landscapes of the Weald. Closer to London are some gems which equally deserve a weekend away or longer holiday, including the majestic Thames Valley with its magnificent historic houses and beautiful varied countryside, offering some of the most beautiful scenery in Southern England. Kent, meanwhile, deserves its title of the Garden of England and the National Trust protects some of the best stretches of countryside and many fine houses and outstanding gardens. Apart from houses such as Bateman's, much-loved family home of Rudyard Kipling, the enchanting Bodiam Castle, Petworth House and Park with its sumptuous interiors and rolling parkland, Polesden Lacey on the North Downs and Chartwell, family home of Sir Winston Churchill, the Trust also owns several glorious gardens including Nymans Garden, Sheffield Park Garden and Sissinghurst Castle Garden.

South Downs

The South Downs, having recently acquired status as a National Park roll across the southern coast f England from the historic city of Winchester in the west down to the cliffs at Beachy Head in the east. National Trust places to visit in this area abound, including Petworth House and Park, with its sumptuous interiors and rolling parkland and Uppark House and Gardens, now restored to its former glory after a major fire in 1989, while nearby are Polesden Lacey on the North Downs and Chartwell, the family home of Sir Winston Churchill. Other attractions in the area include the Cathedral city of Chicester, the historic dockyard at Portsmouth, Goodwood, the home of both horse and motor racing and the seaside resort of Brighton. The South Downs themselves offer wonderful walking and cycling opportunities, all with stunning views of the coastline.

    Apartment perfect

    All the staff, including volunteers were extremely helpful and welcoming. They knew who I was by name which made you feel they cared. The apartment was perfect; comfortable, warm, beautifully decorated and quiet which is just what I wanted. The whole look of the apartment, its location and feeling of peace and quiet and not being overlooked made this place special.

    Delightful walks from doorstep

    Being able to park the car and not use it for a week, instead setting off on delightful walks from our doorstep whether just round the gardens, for a few miles around the reservoir, or a 10 mile hike.

    Best place we've stayed in the UK

    Best place we've stayed in the UK - magnificent gardens, comfortable flat and perfect location to explore the south - lord willing we'll be back.

    The cottage is great

    We've had a very nice and comfortable stay in The Servants' Wing. The cottage is great, very comfortable, and it's beautifully situated. The staff of Standen is very friendly and helpfull. Lovely countryside, beautiful surroundings. If there weren't so many other nice cottages and places to visit, we'd most certainly come back.

    Our second visit - again in spring time. We have enjoyed our stay immensely and we regard it as a great privilege to live in this house even for a short time.
