Outdoor activities and adventures

A rural playground

The lush green lands and fresh country air of the Summer Lodge and its surrounding area lends themselves perfectly to outdoor activities and adventures. Horse riding, falconry, shooting, fishing, sailing, golf, and ballooning are just several ways you can inject some sport into your honeymoon. For those seeking more exploratory pursuits, country houses, local gardens, the 600-acre Melbury Estate and Deer Park, and the UNESCO World Heritage Site that is the Jurassic Coast all lie within close reach of the Summer Lodge.

“Farm to fork” philosophy

Refined and Rustic

Through our “farm to fork” philosophy, we delight our guests with delicious dishes that depend on the best seasonal produce. Our Restaurant showcases Dorset’s culinary delights alongside a wine cellar carefully curated by sommelier. Our Conservatory, Whisky Lounge, Drawing Room, and terrace are all delightful spots from which you can enjoy a traditional Afternoon Tea.

Stay with us

The Ivy Cottage

Our 400-year-old Ivy Cottage, set within a stone-built chalet, is the ultimate honeymoon hideaway. Its luxuriously fitted and designed master bedroom jostles for your affection with a main room elevated by its intimate open fire and a sequestered garden and terrace in which you can discover inner tranquillity amongst the lush foliage. Make use of the exclusive “whatever, whenever” service button to sample the Lodge’s fine cuisine from the privacy of the garden, or use the same button to order a pair of cocktails and toast your new beginning in true style from the Cottage’s indoor hot tub.

Sumptuous suites and rustic rooms

Each of our rooms and suites is elevated by an individual touch that draws out its unique characteristics and charms. Couples seeking an Edenic backdrop for their honeymoon will find our Garden Suite – with its glass conservatory for private dining, courtyard garden adorned with seasonal flowers and foliage, and charming rockery – particularly fitting. Whichever room or suite you choose, you are both sure to be pampered: daily fresh fruit and flowers, homemade shortbread biscuits, and a romantic evening turndown service are just a few examples of how we will help to make your honeymoon an unforgettable one.

Wellness & spa

A wellness wonderland

The tranquil ambience of the Dorset countryside makes it the ideal place for newlyweds to disconnect from more worldly concerns and invest some time and energy into wellbeing. Decompress within our verdant gardens through a yoga session, or simply use them to reattune yourself to the restorative powers of nature. Physical wellbeing can be attended to from our jacuzzi, sauna, tennis court, heated pool, and studio gym facilities. Our Spa and all its treatments are on hand to remove all the stress that comes with wedding planning. Be pampered together by our trained therapists as you feel the benefits of our treatments and their 100% natural products.
