Listen to the story of Lawrence of Arabia's humble home at Clouds Hill 

In this episode of the National Trust podcast we’re at Clouds Hill, the rustic retreat of T.E. Lawrence. Nestled among pine trees in the Dorset countryside, this remote and rustic cottage is where 'Lawrence of Arabia' fled his new-found fame, following his adventures in the desert during the First World War. We’ll take you on a tour of the intimate spaces where he entertained friends, listened to music, and kept his beloved motorbike - giving you an insight into this complex and fascinating character.
