Local activities & experiences
In the fresh country air of The Acorn Inn, your mind inevitably turns to outdoor pursuits and inner peace. Here in the Dorset countryside, you can find almost any sporting activity or healing therapy. Nearby, you'll find opportunities for walking, cycling, horse riding, fishing and golf.
Our sister hotel Summer Lodge, located a short walk from The Acorn Inn, also has a whole host of activities and experiences for you to explore.
Summer Lodge is a wonderful environment in which to relax and recharge your batteries. There is a wide collection of treatments to choose from, including restorative facials for men and women, head and full body massages, manicures, pedicures and more. Our mindfulness classes with qualified teacher Verity Woodgate will invigorate you with the sounds, sights, smells and tastes of the present moment.
The rejuvenative sanctuary of our Spa offers guests the opportunity to purify and detox. Our Executive Chef prides himself on showcasing local ingredients, particularly the vegetables, fruits and herbs that are grown in our gardens. Vegetarians are well catered for - try the local goats curd with courgette flowers and garden peas, followed by the tenderstem broccoli risotto and toasted almonds. Vegan options are available upon request.
Sit back and immerse yourself in the soothing bubbles of our heated Jacuzzi.
Relax in our indoor swimming pool, enclosed in a large glass conservatory and perfectly heated all year round.
Our studio gym is equipped with a state-of-the-art cross-trainer, treadmill, rowing maching, exercise bike and a variety of free weights to help you achieve your fitness goals.
