About this property

An exquisitely elegant, Grade II Listed property in the picturesque village of Evershot, surrounded by the glorious countryside of Hardy's Wessex, dog-friendly Summer Lodge Country House Hotel in Dorset offers intimate country charm at its five-star finest. Graced by four acres of perfectly manicured lawns and beautifully tended gardens, guests enjoy the quintessential country house experience on a comfortably small and intimate scale. You'll be ushered into a bygone era of traditional English hospitality where impeccable personal service and meticulous attention to detail combine to create a sense of well-being and contentment seldom experienced in today's hurried world. Relax further in the lovely indoor pool and spa offering a full range of treatments and therapies. Summer Lodge was voted ‘No.1 Hotel in The UK’ and ’No.2 in Europe’ in Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards 2015.

Dine with Your Dog

One of the biggest attractions at Summer Lodge is the superb wining and dining experience. Chef Steve Titman has won an army of fans by artfully making the best of the superb local produce for which the West Country is famous. He's also teamed with acclaimed sommelier Eric Zweibel, listed among the world's four most-accomplished practitioners in the Best Sommelier of The World Competition 2007 and 2013. Whether you dine in the Restaurant or the Conservatory or take afternoon tea in the lovely Drawing Room, it's sure to be a pleasure you'll want to repeat. Should you wish to dine with your furry friend, you can do so in the Bar Lounge area (subject to availability) or outside on the patio which is a fabulous choice in the summer months – just let our Pet Concierge team know when booking. Or if your canine companion prefers to relax, they can stay in your room whilst you eat.

Bow wow factor

The hotel will provide a list of local walks, plus there is a dog-wash station and 'woof' towels for your return!

Stepping into a Superior Room feels like coming home. The rooms may be richly decorated with fine fabrics, magnificent furniture, and imaginative wallpapers, but they're never less than homely. A Superior Room, with its tranquil views, fresh fruit, home-made shortbread, and twice-daily maid service, puts you at instant ease. This is comfortable, rural living at its most elegant.

A Principal Room is luxury on a grand scale with generous king-size bed, soft furnishings, ornate bathroom, and plenty of room to stretch out. You may not want to leave, which is fine because we bring shortbread, fresh ice, and daily newspapers direct to your room.
