Located in the charming village of Evershot in the heart of Thomas Hardy country, Summer Lodge Country Hotel, Restaurant & Spa is surrounded by the rolling hills of Wessex. This 5-star hotel is the epitome of traditional style, warm hospitality and first rate, creative cuisine. Complete with a relaxing spa, indoor pool, private tennis court and miles of beautiful countryside to explore, this is the quintessential luxurious escape.

The Grade II property was designed by local architect (and sometime novelist and poet) Thomas Hardy and is set within four acres of manicured walled gardens, with a water feature, deer park, vegetable garden and green lawns to play croquet. The 3 AA Rosette-winning fine dining from acclaimed chef Steven Titman is complemented by world-class, award-winning sommelier, Eric Zweibel. The Whiskey Lounge offers 400 whiskies and brandies from around the world and the cheese trolley is quite exceptional.

Generous hospitality is extended warmly to families including pets, where every care is taken to ensure guests enjoy a memorable stay. Each of the 20 rooms and four luxury suites is individually styled, while the 400-year-old Ivy Cottage is a retreat within a retreat.

Sink into the peace and quiet of rural country life, walk in the 400 acre deer park adjacent to the property, explore the rugged Dorset coastline or the more adventurous can try horse-riding, clay-pigeon shooting, fishing and golf. Return to the luxurious comforts of Summer Lodge and enjoy afternoon tea by the roaring fire.
