Our Gardens

Outdoor delights

One of the great attractions of an English country house hotel is a beautiful and restful garden, and Summer Lodge is certainly no exception. Within the hotel’s meticulously tended grounds you’ll find a spectacular water feature, the produce garden which provides fresh fruit, herbs and seasonal vegetables for the kitchen, wide green lawns, and plenty of shaded nooks for lazing around with a cooling drink and a good book on warm summer days.

If you’re feeling a little more active, we can offer tennis on our hard courts, croquet on the lawn, giant chess – there’s more to this game than purely cerebral effort – or a swim in the pool. And how ever you choose to pass your time, you can as always rely on attentive staff to ensure that you have everything you need to make your outdoor hours as rewarding as possible.
