Stanley is above all a West Countryman. He was born in Cornwall, and educated at Ravenswood School, near Tiverton, Devon, Sherborne School, Dorset and Exeter College, Oxford, where he won a Stapeldon Scholarship in Classics. Since 1951 his family has farmed on Exmoor, on the Devon-Somerset border, and Stanley still manages the farm there today.
