Not far from the Jurassic coastline in southwest England, is Summer Lodge, the perfect family friendly luxury country hotel. Set in the tiny village of Evershot, Summer Lodge is an unassuming 5-star retreat located just off the village high street.
Voted the second best hotel in the UK in 2017 by Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards, Summer Lodge has everything you’d expect from a family friendly luxury hotel destination – first-class spa, and award-winning dining, a variety of offerings and an enchanting location. There’s a long attractive list of family specific activities, from the pleasantly simple (cycling, exploring, fresh country air) to the fun and unusual. Fossil hunting anyone?
Just 140 miles from London, a stay at Summer Lodge means the added bonus of time spent inside the alluring world of Thomas Hardy. Bring along a copy of Hardy’s master novel, Tess of the D’Urbervilles to read while you’re there and you’ll slip right into the mood and pace of Dorset.
Summer Lodge will give you a rug and pack you a hamper for a day at the beach. Breathtaking views may inspire the Monet in you to bring an easel and spend the day painting en plain air.
The charming village of Abbotsbury is nearby, but there are plenty of others to explore.
Like one of their fine wines, this luxury country hotel has matured because they’ve expanded their offerings while continuing to provide extraordinary meals, a superb wine list, utterly satisfying afternoon tea, delightful accommodations, a variety of activities and attractions for all ages, and authentic hospitality. There is nothing left to chance at Summer Lodge, all you have to do is enjoy yourself.
Summer Lodge is a privately owned Relais & Châteaux country house hotel ready to welcome you and your family! I can’t think of a better place to go with your brood. They even have cottages to accommodate larger families. Check HERE for availability.
