Divided into many rooms, the 12 acre garden at Standen is the creation of Margaret Beale.

Set on a hillside in the High Weald, it is full of many surprises and is currently undergoing a major restoration, known as Standen Revival.

Standen Revival

Standen Revival is our exciting five year project to restore the arts and crafts inspired gardens at Standen, created by Margaret Beale in the late 19th early 20th century.

Looking good now

The garden is bursting with spring colour with over 7000 varieties of tulips and camellias, magnolias and fritillaries. Cherry, pear and apple blossom can also be found in the kitchen garden.

 

 

 

Kitchen garden

Our kitchen garden supplies our café with seasonal fruit and vegetables, with extra produce available on the barrow so you can take a taste of Standen home with you.

History of the garden

Standen house from the upper lawn

Created between 1891 and 1910 by Margaret Beale, the garden was a voyage of discovery for a plantswoman who had 12 acres of garden to play with and a world of new plants from which to choose.
