Guestbook comments from the owner

Travelled with family for a weeks holiday, 5 adults and 2 children under 5 years' we loved staying at Summer Lodge, the children didn't want to leave. We finally arrived at Summer Lodge over 2 hours late due to being involved in an accident, the home owners were very understanding arriving late was no problem to them. The house is definitely 5 star accommodation, very clean, had everything you needed including child gates for the children's bedroom which was good, and a lovely welcome of complimentary wine, milk, tea, coffee and biscuits to get the holiday started. We enjoyed the pool very clean and warm and the children enjoyed the games room and garden. Location was great, 10 mins drive into Weymouth seafront there you have lovely restaurants and kids adventure parks, so lots to do for all ages.

Overall we all enjoyed the holiday, and would recommend to others. The deposit was paid back into my account within four days of leaving which was good.

Wonderful! 4.8/5 -
(9 traveller reviews)



  • 5 of 5

A great place to stay. We were 6 adult and 4 children. Particularly loved the pool and fitness / games areas. The only negatives for us were that the road outside is very busy (noisy) and one of the double bedrooms is small and on the ground floor with just a small toilet next door where as all the other rooms are decent sized (both other doubles very large and all rooms except 1 twin are en suite). We would certainly recommend it / stay again though. Overall a great house / location and Mike the owner was very helpful. Thank you!

Beautiful house and grounds in a lovely location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a superb stay this weekend, there was plenty of room for everyone to be together or spread out for a bit of quiet time. The games room and pool were a massive hit with the children. Plenty of things to do locally too. Thank you to the hosts who showed us round the house and were at the end of the phone if we needed anything.

Lovely property

  • 4 of 5

Overall it was a brilliant property, just right for celebrating my 70th birthday. The pool was the center of everything for us as the grand daughter loves the water. The Sly Fox pup had just reopened and we had a lovely meal there the staff were really attentive. One downside was the body shower had been disconnected this should have been made clear in the information pack.Also we saw from previous reviews that some customers had received a much appreciated welcome pack which we were looking forward to receiving but were disappointed not to have one.apart from the couple of things just mentioned it was a great holiday and would not hesitate to book again.

Had a wonderful time

  • 4 of 5

Met Mr& Mrs Flan, they had left a lovely welcome pack. We were briefly showed around the property and then left to ourselves.

The property is huge with large well appointed bedrooms. Plenty of everything for everyone, including televisions.

Initially a slight mix up with the presentation of the security deposit, however everything was sorted the next day.

Perfect house perfect location

  • 5 of 5

I selected this beautiful house because it has an indoor swimming pool and our family break had to be in February so I thought whatever the weather could throw at us we would have a good time, and WE DID!

We rented the house for a week and we had our children and grandchildren with us for the weekend. They used the pool several times a day and absolutely loved it. The parents enjoyed the games room for watching the rugby and listening to the juke box whilst I loved being with the grandchildren in the spacious living area down stairs.

On Sunday night the left and eight of our close friends joined us on the Monday morning. They had each brought a main meal so that no one had too much work with catering for our large group. The kitchen has absolutely everything you could possibly need including the expresso coffee machine which was very popular. There is also an extra fridge freezer to accommodate all the food we brought. The living spaces were perfect for getting together as a whole group or having spaces to having a bit of time from the main group.

One of our party used to come to Weymouth as a child so he knew all the beauty spots, so each day we had a trip out and so the most amazing scenery. This area has so much more than I was expecting. We walked along the promenade of the fantastic beach at Weymouth but did not go on it. That treat lies in store for our return trip to this beautiful house in spring or summer months when our grandchildren will be able to enjoy the beach as well as the indoor pool!

Thank you Michael for making this holiday so easy for us. It was great to use your fabulous house.
