Inspirations

Summer Lodge Country House Hotel, Restaurant & Spa is part of the following Inspirations:

10 Great Hotels for Romance this February by Adrian Mourby

"There is a rumour that local novelist Thomas Hardy designed the graceful and imposing extension to Evershot’s Summer Lodge. Like so many hotel stories this is unlikely. Hardy had long given up architecture to write full time when the Dower House was extended with a superb blue drawing room, incorporating over-sized alcoves and fine master bedroom (No1) above. Nevertheless both rooms have a romance about them. And for those who enjoyed Hardy’s great tale of thwarted love, Tess of D’Urbevilles there is plenty more 19th century romance to be found in Evershot.

This Dorset village is called Evershed in Hardy’s novels. It is here that poor Tess pauses to take breakfast by St Osmund’s Church on the way to see her new husband’s parents. (Like all great plans in Hardy’s novels the visit goes horribly wrong).

The owners of Summer Lodge also own the local pub, the Acorn Inn which features as the Sow and Acorn in two of Hardy stories, Interlopers at the Knap and 'The First Countess of Wessex. So if you like your romance tinged with a little melancholy, come to Evershot, drink a preprandial at the Acorn Inn and then settle in at Summer Lodge for a much nicer evening than poor Tess ever managed."
