About Luxury Lodges

Read our story so far

Luxury Lodges was founded in 2015 to provide a solution for busy families seeking practical, but stylish, holidays in the UK.

After discovering that there was nothing in the market that met these needs, mother and entrepreneur, Sharon Hurley, was inspired to create a series of resorts that offered the one thing busy families want most - quality time together away from the stresses of everyday life.

Sharon soon realised that this desire extended beyond families to professional couples and large groups of friends, and so Luxury Lodges - a collection of luxury private homes suitable for everyone from couples to groups - was born.

2015 - Luxury Lodges started

Where it all began

Our culture
