STANSTED HOUSE

EDWARDIAN MANSION

STANSTED HOUSE

 

This stunning Edwardian mansion stands in 1800 acres of parkland and ancient forest within the South Downs National Park. In 1983 the 10th Earl of Bessborough gave Stansted Park, the Arboretum, his family home and its beautiful contents to the public. The state rooms are furnished as though the 10th Earl was still at home giving the visitor a real sense of a bygone era, the extensive Servants' Quarters below stairs are brought to life by the very knowledgeable and friendly guides who will guide you through the vibrant history of this beautiful stately home.

We want to help you get the most out of your visit.  We welcome visitors of all interests and abilities.  The Walled Gardens, Garden Centre, craft workshops and Pavilion Tea Room all have level access, but some paths in the grounds are graveled.

The Mansion is accessible by wheelchair lift and an inside passenger lift. We regret that we cannot accommodate large powered wheelchairs in these, please call ahead of your visit to find out more information and to avoid disappointment.

Please download our access statement or ask for a copy if you'd like more information. We also welcome feedback to help us improve our service.

The Garden Centre car park is the main car park for access to all Walled Garden attractions and the House.
There is a designated ‘disabled’ car park next to the Pavilion Tea Room for Blue Badge holders and beside the entry to the Garden Centre.
House visitors with mobility limitations may be dropped off beside the House by arrangement.

We regret that only assistance dogs are permitted in the gardens, maze and House. There is no shade in car parks. For reasons of public safety dogs are not allowed at general public events (dog themed events are an exception). Dogs on footpaths and bridleways in the Forest must be kept under close control.
