Summer Lodge Country House Hotel & Restaurant

THE CHARMING VILLAGE OF EVERSHOT IS HOME TO THE FIVE-STAR SUMMER LODGE COUNTRY HOUSE HOTEL & RESTAURANT, RUN BY DELIGHTFUL GENERAL MANAGERS ALEX AND JACK MACKENZIE.

This quintessential country-house escape in the town made famous by novelist Thomas Hardy presents guests with an enviable quandary – spend time in the heated indoor pool or spa, practice yoga in the garden, or venture into the countryside for walking, cycling, horseback riding, fishing, golf and exploring the Jurassic Coast.  Thankfully, it’s easy to do it all when staying at the Grade II-listed estate, where exemplary service, warm smiles, and individually decorated guest rooms add to the timeless appeal.  English traditions are lovingly upheld, including a delicious Dorset Cream Tea with scrumptious, freshly baked scones, specialty teas, and Champagne.  Later, guests dine on innovative cuisine and classic signature dishes based on local ingredients, such as Dorset Vinny Blue Cheese and Dorset beef.  Renowned sommelier Eric Zweibel recommends impressive wines, including those from the hotel’s award-winning sister South African vineyard, Bouchard Finlayson.
