A very comfortable cottage. Well equipped.
Christine Judd 02/09/2019
Have been staying at The Lawns for the last 19 years, think that says it all. Always clean and updated property, nice welcome with essential supplies, . In excellent position for touring around the area.

Would like to see a couple of garden loungers for us older folk who would make more use of the lovely garden, appreciate storage might be a problem,just a thought.

Will be back next year.
Don 23/07/2019
Very clean everything we needed. Nice location. Excellent. Loved the Xmas decks not to many and the lovely treats they left.
The single mattresses need to be looked at and cooker hobs were not all heating up properly but otherwise excellent. Lovely big garden.

The lawns was a comfortable and relaxing place to stay and all the amenities were good.
We would stay in the bungalow again and loved the area for which the lawns was perfectly central.
Andrew McGarvie. 15/10/2018
lovely bungalow with nice large garden. bungalow was nice and clean everywhere and was very well equipped. Living room and kitchen could do with some updating but bedrooms were quite modern with nice wardrobes, set of drawers and bedside drawers. bungalow was very handy for shopping with Tesco and Morrisons just up the road in Blandford Forum. Would stay again.
Mrs V Capewell 21/09/2018
A nice always clean bungalow, set in a quite location, dogs allowed which is why we originally stayed here, sadly no longer have our "Westie" but continue to enjoy our stays." Welcome" tray a nice touch. Do miss getting phone call on the first evening from Mrs Keniston the original owner. Would appreciate some form of recording of TV programmes.Unable to make Wi fi connection, each time we tried it was shown as being out of range, Not a big problem weather so good, did not need it much.

The Lawns was lovely. Very much home from home. Everything we needed was there. The veranda was a bonus and the garden was fabulous. Was in a beautiful area and was one of the nicest places for dog walking. So convenient for everywhere beautiful in Dorset. The only one negative was that there was no wash hand basin in the toiet. Apart from that it was perfect!!!
Denise 12/10/2017
We have visited The Lawns several times and find it to be one of the best rental 'cottages'. The interior is pleasant and well maintained, and the cottage is in a great location for touring Dorset. The garden is large and lovely. Minor gripes are that the toilet seat now needs to be replaced as it is heavily stained with spilled cleaning fluids, and the shower screen is too low for 6 foot persons.
Mr J Simpson 30/06/2017
Lovely clean and well equipped accommodation surrounded by beautiful garden. Just right for people with slight mobility issues and a quiet relaxing time was had by all
Sandie pullman 17/06/2017
The Lawns is very spacious and was immaculately clean and well equipped. The covered sitting out area at the back is lovely. It is perfect for dogs, with a large enclosed garden and a small wood and miles of walking on a disused railway trail a minute or two up the lane. While it is inland, the nearest beach is 25 minutes drive and you are well placed to head in any direction - Corfe and Swanage, Poole and Bournemouth, National Trust properties, Monkey World and Compton Acres are all in the area. The lane has more traffic than expected as it seems to be used as a cut through, but is well off the very busy A350.
Sue B 03/06/2017
We've no complaints at all regarding our stay at the " lawns"
Just one small blip due to heavy storms the T V aerial was fixed without delay.
We feel so privileged to find such a perfect holiday place.
Gordon A Woodcock 24/05/2017
The lawns is perfect for a quiet peaceful retreat at the end of a busy day at all the near by beautiful places
Sandie Pullman 12/05/2017
Everything was very clean and comfortable. The garden is beautiful and the location is great for exploring Dorset and the New Forest. My 89 year old mother really enjoyed her stay in the bungalow and found it easy to get around.
Thank you
Ingrid Ogden 16/07/2016
Having stayed at The Lawns each year for the last seventeen years we really need say no more, always clean and welcoming. Ideally situated, will be back next year. Found Dorset Cottage Holidays helpful and efficient more personnel than the previous agency. Thank you.

Mrs Bailey 14/01/2016
Lovely holiday home, well equipped and very clean the garden is huge and well maintained. Very quiet and peaceful location but still central to Blandford Forum. The local pub is a 10 minutes walk and is really nice it does great food and all the staff are really friendly.
We will definitely be going back to The Lawns.
Paul 14/01/2016
This was our second visit to The Lawns and it was just as perfect as the first time. It is in a lovely peaceful location yet close to all the places we wanted to visit. After a lovely day out it was an absolute pleasure to return to each evening.
