Minibus visit to Standen House, West Hoathly Road, East Grinstead RH19 4NE

on Wednesday 19th July

Departing from West Chiltington Village Hall at 9.45 a.m. returning by 4.30 p.m. at the latest


Standen House is one of the finest examples of Arts and Craft workmanship with Morris and Company interiors.  There is a hillside garden with an award-winning plant collection and views across the Sussex countryside.  Footpaths from the estate lead to High Weald woodland and Ashdown Forest.  There is an 18th-century barn which provides tasty seasonal dishes made using some produce from the gardens at Standen.


In the property there are narrow corridors, ramped access/slopes, steps and some

uneven terrain in the gardens which we must be aware of.

Care also needed when moving on and off the minibus. 


The cost of the minibus hire will be approximately £9.00 per person depending on number of passengers. 

This is a National Trust property, so admission is free to National Trust members. £14 for non members.

Please let us know if you would like to self drive.

More ideas for the summer programme are in the pipeline.


Please note, we need at least 10 people for each trip to make the minibus hire viable.

We would like bookings to be confirmed and the bus fare paid at the WI meeting prior to the trip.

Thank you for your understanding!
