Reviews

We really enjoyed staying in this beautiful house, we loved the garden, the pool and the surrounding area.Mrs Jennifer Lovegrove - 7th August 2017
We had an amazing weekend at the Lower Standen Farm & Granary. From enjoying a glass of wine in front of the open fire, eating around a table big enough of 16, to just waking up in the morning and looking out of the massive windows that overlook the beautiful countryside. The house is beautiful, the kitchen very well equipped and the beds comfortable. Even out of season this house is great!Miss Shaleen Karim - 30th November 2016
The property worked well for the yoga week end and everybody liked it.Mrs Anna Ferla - 3rd February 2016
Lower Standen Farm and Granary were absolutely stunning, well equipped and in an idyllic setting. We were delighted to stay there.Mrs Vine, Surrey - 19th May 2014
