The cottage remains as Lawrence left it upon his death. The cottage contains an exhibition detailing Lawrence’s extraordinary life including most of his original furniture and posessions. The cottage reflects heavily on his complex personality and close links to the Middle East.The house is open to visitors from the end of March to the beginning of October from Thursday to Sunday.
