Package is valid from 31st December 2013 until 2nd January 2014 New Year is one of those rare moments when the world momentarily pauses for breath – it's a time for reflection, but also a time of excitement, celebration and anticipation. It demands to be done in style and Summer Lodge has to be one of the best places in the world to "see out the old and see in the new". Ring in 2014 to mark this very special occasion. Our fabulous two-night house party is packed with music, fantastic cuisine, wine and luxurious accommodation. Our New Year package includes: Two nights' accommodation in a beautifully appointed room or suite Brunch on New Year's Day Full English Breakfast on the morning of the 2nd of January Dinner on both evenings New Year's Eve wine tasting, Champagne reception, wine with dinner, as well as a glass of Champagne at midnight to toast the New Year Full Afternoon Tea daily Tuesday 31st December Arrive at your leisure from 3:00pm onwards to a warm welcome, settle into your room and then join us for Dorset Afternoon Tea.

This is an ideal opportunity to experience new and interesting wines and make your choices for the festivities ahead. The celebrations to welcome in the New Year begin with a Champagne aperitif from 8:00pm in the Drawing Room, followed by a Black Tie Gala Dinner, including wines, with light musical entertainment. Seating could be arranged on party tables. At midnight, toast the arrival of 2014 with streamers and Champagne, plus, of course, a rousing chorus of ‘Auld Lang Syne’ Wednesday 1st January Allow yourself the luxury of a lie-in and then enjoy brunch from 8:00am until 2:00pm. The remainder of the day is free for you to enjoy as you wish; blow away the cobwebs with an exhilarating walk along the Jurassic coastline or borrow a bicycle and take a ride through the quiet country lanes.

If your New Year resolution is to improve your fitness, then you may decide to use the gym for a gentle workout. Afternoon tea will be available from 3:30pm to 5:30pm. To round off the first day of the year, a delicious four-course dinner will be served in the restaurant to a little light musical entertainment.
