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.
Enjoy modern British cuisine in The Blue Door Bistro, or dine al fresco with beautiful views from The Garden Terrace. Discover our delicious Afternoon Tea, complete with delicate finger sandwiches, freshly baked scones and an array of tempting pastries, or explore our superb range of cocktails and brandies while soaking up live music in The Leopard Bar.
Fine wine is an integral part of The Montague experience, and our wine list is filled with fine vintages from around the world. Within it you will encounter a careful selection featuring the great names from the Old World – classic wines from Burgundy, Bordeaux, and Champagne – complemented by a wide range of wines from the New World, many of them offering outstanding value.
Foremost among these are the wines from the celebrated Bouchard Finlayson, our sister wine estate, makers of some of South Africa’s most distinguished wines. The Montague on the Gardens is proud to present a range of outstanding vintages from this prestigious marque.
