Tony has run Your Lodge in the Lakes since he founded the company in 2011. Originally starting out running his own design agency, he decided after 20 years that he would move to the South of France and set up the property and holiday business Your Place in France, before returning the Lake District where he now lives.

Tony’s passion for design can be seen in all his lodges with quirky artwork, lighting and furniture including pieces like the dining table he made from reclaimed scaffolding planks. He loves the outdoors and now his rugby playing days are over he loves walking the fells with his French Jack Russell Betise or exploring the old bridleways on his mountain bike.
