"Unique in the world:one of the best cheeseboards in the UK, and the 200 whiskies and 100 brandies that are on offer"Charles Lotter, Maître de Maison, presents his property:
Deep in the heart of the rolling Wessex countryside and only a short drive from the dramatic rocks and fossils of the world renowned Jurassic Coast, little has changed from the days it was immortalised in the novels of Thomas Hardy. Summer Lodge remains a magical escape from the prosaic realities of the 21st century. Set in nearly two hectares of idyllic gardens, with a croquet lawn, indoor pool, health spa, and a collection of richly furnished guest rooms and suites, it’s a small world in itself. Add in a restaurant of international repute, one of the best cheeseboards in the UK, and the 200 whiskies and 100 brandies that are on offer, plus service that manages to be wonderfully discreet yet impressively thoughtful, and it’s easy to see why guests come from so far and wide.
