Luxury Dorset

We say
Summer Lodge is one of those rare hotels that wraps you up in a cosy cashmere blanket of low key luxury. It's worth a day trip for the chance to eat in the restaurant alone but better yet to stay for a few nights, soak up the ambiance and return home refreshed, replete and thoroughly spoiled.

Recommended place to stay: Summer Lodge Hotel

Summer Lodge Hotel says

As you approach the hotel, through the pretty West Dorset village of Evershot, you will feel your shoulders relax. It’s that sort of place – low key, welcoming and very spoiling. We are all about warm hospitality, discreet service and the comforts of country house living with exceptional food and a world-class wine list.

  • Country house living
  • Gourmet dining
  • Doorstep walks

Our 18 rooms and suites ooze luxury and character and, for an even more romantic option, there’s bijou Ivy Cottage. Little touches such as homemade shortbread add to the sense of pampering.

Head down to the spa with its heated indoor pool and restorative treatments – maybe enjoy a light lunch or afternoon tea on the spa terrace too.

Relax in the beautiful gardens, spacious lounge and atmospheric bar (with over 300 whiskies amongst the options) as you build up an appetite.

The restaurant is something very special with a menu which changes daily and showcases our wonderful local produce. The presentation, service and ambiance are top notch but, most important of all, the food is delicious. And save a bit of room for our cheese trolley – it’s very special. Our Master Sommelier will help you choose the best wines to match your menu choices – by the glass or bottle.

Our rural location means there are endless walks on the doorstep and we can arrange a wealth of activities from falconry to hot air ballooning.

If you prefer the idea of a pub with rooms, our sister property, The Acorn Inn, has you covered. Also in Evershot village, there are 10 gorgeous rooms, a thriving pub and delicious food.
