Lawn Cottage is in the village of Stour Row near Shaftesbury and is a delightful 18th Century stone cottage that offers B&B accommodation. There is a gate from the garden to the fields behind which leads to Duncliffe Wood. Duncliffe is 250 acres of Woodland Trust full of lovely walks and in the early spring bursting with primroses and violets and later filled with bluebells and foxgloves.
All of the rooms at our bed and breakfast are filled with charming antiques. We have 3 guest rooms available which include:
Ground floor twin/double with en suite shower room & TV/DVD player. Suitable for the less able (but not wheelchairs).
A ground floor lofty single/bunk bedroom with en suite shower. Suitable for the less able (but not wheelchairs).

A full English breakfast with organic eggs, bacon, sausages, tomatoes and mushrooms, Dorset cereals and porridge, kippers and haddock on request and a selection of bread, croissants and rolls, with homemade blackcurrant jam and marmalade. All accompanied by fresh coffee, a selection of teas and freshly squeezed orange juice. Breakfast can be taken in the cosy kitchen with its Aga or in the more formal dining room.
We also have a glamping shepherds hut available for those who want a peaceful hideaway. More information can be found on our website.
