A choice of rooms at a multi award-winning country house in the west Dorset countryside, with breakfast and three-course dinner included

If you like traditional Dorset charm – narrow winding lanes, ivy-clad cottages, the Wessex of Thomas Hardy, and invigorating, get-away-from-it-all countryside – you need go no further than the quaint village of Evershot, where we lay our scene. A glorious blend of thatched villages, prehistoric earthworks, literary resonances, geological treasures, and sweeping chalk cliffs, Dorset is quintessential England at its best and Summer Lodge Country House Hotel & Spa captures it perfectly.

Set in four acres of perfectly maintained gardens, this immaculately restored 24-room Relais & Châteaux property has swiftly earned a reputation as one of England’s finest country house hotels, and was recently voted number two in the "Top Hotels in the United Kingdom and Ireland" (number five in "The 50 Best Hotels in the World") in the Condé Nast Reader's Choice awards. With an award-winning restaurant (and extensive wine list created by one of the world’s best sommeliers), a large indoor heated pool and rejuvenating body and beauty treatments, you have everything you'd need for a perfect five-star break.
