Summer Lodge Hotel launches new Gourmet Wellness weekends for 2014

Summer Lodge Country House Hotel, Restaurant and Spa in Dorset has combined its luxurious surroundings and acclaimed fine dining experience with the expertise of one of the leading figures in the world of wellbeing, Dr. Dorian Dugmore, CEO of Wellness Academy. The result is an immersive guilt-free indulgence weekend designed to analyse, educate and encourage discerning couples about their health and wellbeing, revealing how to enjoy some of life’s pleasures while maintaining a balanced lifestyle.

The first Gourmet Wellness for Couples weekend runs from Friday 7th March to Sunday 9th March at the stunning country house property located in the charming village of Evershot, just two and a half hours from London.

The Gourmet Wellness weekend will begin with an informal welcome and dinner on Friday evening. Saturday morning starts with a measurement of key numbers including cholesterol and blood sugars, heart rate and biological age, and then a country walk through the beautiful Melbury Estate and Deer Park. Following a well-deserved breakfast, guests will participate in a number of sessions with Dr. Dorian and his team of experts, focused on the key lifestyle risks that influence the health and wellbeing of couples; from the science of the feel-good factor, to techniques to manage stress and reduce tension, as well as how simple changes in diet and improving sleep quality can maximise energy.

There will also be other activities associated with wellness, including a wine tasting with Summer Lodge’s award-winning sommelier Eric Zwiebel who will share the secrets to choosing a ‘healthier’ tipple. Even the surprising health benefits of chocolate will not escape the attention of the wellness connoisseurs during this weekend. Finally, on Sunday morning couples will work together to write their own wellness plan and explore the potentials of building a healthier lifestyle, assisted by the Wellness Academy team.

A special menu has been designed for the Gourmet Wellness weekend, utilising the abundance of locally-sourced fresh produce and combining the skills of Head Chef Steve Titman with the knowledge of Dr. Dorian’s nutrition experts. Together they have created a mouth-watering programme of food, served up with recipe cards to teach guests about the ingredients and health benefits of each dish.

Interspersed with countryside walks through the neighbouring 600 acre Melbury Estate and Deer Park and plenty of free time to spend in Summer Lodge’s exquisite Spa, the weekend aims to instil guests with a positive attitude, and allow them to leave full of confidence for the healthier road ahead. The weekend is designed to give practical tips showing that the path to wellbeing is far from boring or daunting!

Gourmet Wellness for Couples will run at intervals throughout 2014, with the first two-night break from Friday 7th to Sunday 9th March. The package is priced at £1,760 for two people staying in a Classic room, including two nights accommodation at Summer Lodge, two breakfasts, lunch at the Acorn Inn with drinks, wine tasting with award-winning sommelier Eric Zwiebel, two dinners with wine including a black tie gala dinner and all included wellness activities across the weekend. Higher room categories are also available and the package will be priced accordingly. Treatments at the Spa are additional and bookable on request.
