Summer Lodge, an exquisitely comfortable five star country house set deep in Hardy’s Wessex, offers the ultimate escape.
Each of the 20 rooms and four luxury suites weaves its own spell with rich fabrics, elegant furnishings and a host of thoughtful touches, along with the latest entertainment technology.
Chef Steve Titman makes imaginative use of the abundant fresh local produce, including herbs from the hotel’s own kitchen garden, to create traditional English dishes with a twist of modern European influences. Traditional afternoon teas, either served on the terrace or in the drawing room designed by Thomas Hardy himself, are legendary.
Cellar Master Eric Zwiebel was runner-up in the Best Sommelier of the World competition in 2007, while Wine Spectator rates the wine list one of the most outstanding in the world.
The spa is a seductive sanctuary in which to refresh and rejuvenate, purify and detoxify. There’s also a fully equipped gym, Jacuzzi, sauna and heated indoor pool.
Kids love it, with family-friendly accommodation in the Coach House and Summer Lane Cottages.
