Summer Lodge Country House Hotel, Resturant and Spa
About the spa
Summer Lodge feels like home because that's what it was built for. With four acres of landscaped gardens, a croquet lawn, a heated indoor pool, and a health spa, Summer Lodge becomes your own private world – a secluded escape from the pressures of everyday life. This is a tranquil Wessex haven full of courtesy, charm, character, calm, and cuisine.
The Spa at Summer Lodge is listed in Tatler's 101 Best Spas in the World 2009. It was created to provide the ultimate destination to soothe, refresh and rejuvenate body and mind. A sanctuary from the pressures of everyday living, their dedicated aim is to purify and detoxify, promote well being, and leave you feeling totally revitalised.
The Spa now offers a range of treatments from Darphin, customised skincare created from the finest plant extracts and botanical aromas. Drawing from the finest essential oils and botanical aromas, Darphin products deliver immediate and visible results as well as indulgent, ultra-sensorial experiences using the most sophisticated textures. The experienced therapists offer a range of facials for men and women, Darphin Body Treatments and Exotic Therapy, St Tropez Tanning, plus a range of massages that include head, hot stone therapy, reflexology and reiki.
About the accommodation
Life in our peaceful corner of the Dorset countryside is quietly addictive. Despite the lure of nearby attractions, visitors to this listed, 5-star country-house hotel are reluctant to leave. The food and wines are superb (both the restaurant and our sommelier are award-winners); the staff, outstanding; the surroundings, idyllic. When Harpers & Queen fell under our spell, they listed us among the 100 best places in the world.
In a luxury break, it's the little extras that make the difference – the fresh fruit in your room on arrival, a ready-drawn candlelit bath, the affection we lavish on your pets. From the moment you arrive, we make you and your family feel cared for and special.
Each of our 20 guest rooms and four luxury suites is different. Each has a warm and inviting style of its own. In these cosy rooms, it's easy to immerse yourself in the peace and quiet of Dorset rural life. Of course you don't have to leave the 21st century completely behind. Each room has its own plasma-screen TV, DVD player, radio, air conditioning, and complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi connection.
