Meet the team

Sharon Hurley | Founder

Back in 1992, after discovering that there was nothing in the market, 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. The business has grown dramatically over the 20 years, with continuous redevelopments to properties and facilities, and new resorts on the horizon, the one thing that has remained consistent is the family values that hold the business together!

Jack Hurley | Commercial Director

Jack joined the business back in 2015 after finishing his degree and threw himself into the deep end of the day-to-day running of the business. Having been brought up within the family business his whole life, he often says how it really is a 24-hour and 7-day week-long operation when it comes to the running of the company, with a lot of unofficial meetings taking place every night at the dinner table! Jack's main roles involve all aspects of marketing for Luxury Lodges, from sales brochures to our annual members magazine. He splits his time each week moving between the resorts and meeting both guests, staff and business partners.

Ross Grieve | Managing Director

Joining the business in 2013, Ross was initially the MD of our five-star award-winning hotel Seaham Hall and was tasked with re-establishing the hotel following several years of neglect from prior ownership. Following this, Ross became heavily involved in the development of Luxury Lodges, our rental arm of the business. Through the support and investment of the founders, Ross has continued to develop all of the resorts and bring them up to hotel-quality resorts with his 25 years of experience. Luxury Lodges offers a unique opportunity to develop in a fascinating industry which allows individuals to progress in their chosen careers. Throughout the business, there are numerous examples of team members who have worked their way up and at the core of our ethos is to develop and promote within

Anne Marie | Reservations and Memberships Manager

Having been here since the very beginning, Anne Marie is really part of the furniture! 30 years is a long time in any company, but she stays because she loves it. Working at Luxury Lodges is the only job she's ever done, and she takes real pride in all we have achieved and how the company has grown from one resort to the eleven we have now. Anne Marie knows our business inside out and holds an incredible amount of knowledge on how our memberships work and the most efficient ways to use them. She heads up our Reservations and Memberships department where the team take thousands of bookings and general enquires about the business.

Kara James | Sales Director

Kara has also been with us since the beginning. Having initially taken the job in our telesales office in 1989 as a stopgap until she was old enough to join the RAF, however, that day never came around! Kara has really done a bit of everything, cleaning, reception, bar and waitressing, before moving into the sales side of things a few years later. Her role has been to look after pending and prospective clients, dealing with their enquiries and questions, and she now shares the Sales Director job. She says how she really has loved every minute of it, and her advice to anyone joining is that you'll definitely 'get out what you put in' with us!

James Whyte | Sales Director

James joined our Sales team in 2017 after a move from Edinburgh to Bath. Whilst travelling around the resorts, he was quickly snapped up at Dylan Coastal Resort and shortly became the Sales Manager just over a year later. He's now progressed even further and shares the Sales Director job and enjoys every minute of it. He loves how the business has built a culture that centres around the team and creates an atmosphere that allows everyone to fulfil their potential; 'the entire workforce strives towards a common goal and the support between everyone is fantastic.'

David Clarke | Finance Director

David joined our Head Office team in Bristol back in 2002 after moving over from Hutchinson Trust Company. Having previously worked for British Airways, Tetra Pak and others, he has a huge background in both financial and management accounting. David says how he was really excited about the opportunity to join one of Europe's 'leading property ownership developers,' and instantly bought into the culture of innovation which had a dynamic marketing and sales strategy. Even after 19 years, he still insists that no day is the same, and always learns or sees something new each day. He thoroughly enjoys being part of the ever-changing and growing landscape within Luxury Lodges!
