Activities & experiences
In the fresh country air of Summer Lodge, 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.
You don't have to leave our grounds to indulge in a bout of gentle – or not so gentle – exercise. We have our own heated indoor pool, a fully equipped gymnasium, bicycles, and in our stunning gardens you will find a croquet lawn, and an all-weather tennis court.
Savour a choice of aperitifs with Champagne and canapés, followed by a delicious three-course menu, spectacular wedding cake, wine, tea and coffee and a glass of champagne for the toast. You'll also enjoy a choice of fresh flowers and a romantic array of floating candles. The menus change to reflect the different seasons and every detail can be tailored to your personal taste.
For your wedding reception and dinner, we offer three splendid rooms. The Parquet Room seats up to 45 guests but can be increased to 70 guests if combined with the Louise Room. The favourite room, however, is L'Observatoire which offers spectacular views over the lake, mountains and the Jet d’Eau, and can host intimate receptions for up to 35 guests.
