The award-winning Grade II Listed Summer Lodge Country House Hotel in Dorset celebrates the year with inspiring events and the chance to sample extraordinary local and seasonal cuisine, international flavours and enables guests to learn about the latest trends. Enjoy a variety of different dining and entertainment experiences with family or friends for an unforgettable experience.
We go to great lengths to provide the very best experience in each of our venues, and welcome suggestions from you for future events too, so please do feel free to let us know what may be of interest to you.
We look forward to welcoming you in the coming months.
We try to make sure everything's special, and for many years we have welcomed guests and locals for our famous Afternoon Tea which can be enjoyed in the Conservatory, Whiskey Lounge, Drawing Room, or during finer weather, outdoors on the terrace.
You simply can’t visit Summer Lodge without enjoying a traditional afternoon tea in the setting of the tranquil garden, and sample some of the finest Dorset cream with your scones. Delicate finger sandwiches, freshly made scones and a glorious array of cakes and delicacies are served with a selection of speciality teas.
