Summer Lodge Country House Hotel & Restaurant

Quintessential English Countryside Luxury in Thomas Hardy's Dorset

Summer Lodge Country House Hotel & Restaurant logo

Immerse yourself in the quintessential English countryside experience with a stay at the five-star Summer Lodge Country House Hotel & Restaurant in West Dorset, part of the prestigious Relais & Châteaux collection. This luxury hotel is nestled in the heart of Thomas Hardy country in the charming village of Evershot, which was famously featured in the English literary masterpiece, Tess of the d'Urbervilles.

Here, centuries-old stone cottages, working log fireplaces, enchanting gardens and antiques come together to create the ultimate countryside escape, discreetly balanced with modern amenities like an air-conditioned gym and in-room flat-screen televisions. Be sure to sit down for an incredible meal at the farm-to-table restaurant, paired with the perfect wine as recommended by an award-winning sommelier. For an extra dose of relaxation, book in time to unwind at the day spa, take a dip in the bubbling jacuzzi and enjoy a steam in the sauna, or indulge in a friendly round of tennis on the onsite court. Come evening, head across the village to The Acorn, a 16th-century coaching inn that will welcome you with real ales and a skittle alley.
