About Tony Brown

My name is Tony Brown & I am the owner of Butterfly Lodge along with my partner Elizabeth. I have travelled the world extensively living in New Zealand, Australia & South Africa.

I was a self employed management consultant, business mentor and a qualified life coach. I ran my own business for over 20 years. I am now semi-retired.

I'm a keen SCUBA diver and have had the pleasure of diving the reefs & wrecks off the Cornish coast many times. My other sporting interests include golf, playing guitar, walking & rugby league.

Tony Brown purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Tony Brown chose South East Cornwall

As a youngster I went to Looe for summer holidays with my parents. I fell in love with Cornwall and brought my family with our touring caravan.

My partner Elizabeth loves this part of the world as passionately as I do. We visited Killigarth Manor staying in lodges and caravans on a number of occasions. We decided to buy Butterfly Lodge when it became available. It is situated in a quiet corner of the park giving the best of both worlds.

We have poured our passion, time, effort and money into the lodge to make it our 'home from home'.

Cornwall has so much to offer. The proximity of Looe, Talland Bay & Polperro make it ideal as we love walking.

What makes this cabin unique

Chill out at Butterfly Lodge. The lodge is positioned backing onto the Polperro football pitch. This is a local amateur club so no problems on match days. Just a handful of well behaved spectators and their dogs.

We extended the decked area to the rear of the lodge which gives outdoor living front and rear. The rear of the property is South facing making it a secluded and sheltered sunbathing area.

Buses run regularly to Looe, Liskeard, Polperro & Plymouth. The Looe train has to be experienced and joins the main tracks at Liskeard giving excellent access to all major towns and cities.

There is a convenience shop on site, launderette, takeaway, bar, swimming pools, sauna, gym, crazy golf, tennis court, children's play area, bar and club. It's got something for everyone!

Fantastic Cabin in Lovely Polperro

  • 5 of 5

From the minute we arrived we loved the cabin and the holiday park. The cabin is very comfortable and furnished to a high standard and feels like a looked after home. Everything you need is provided and this particular cabin really stands out against the rest with its butterfly theme. We had no problems at all and the owner was brilliant to deal with through out and provided all the information we needed upon payment of the balance. My 4 year old daughter loved the holiday and was right at home in the cabin straight away. The site is located close to polperro, although it it a steep walk back from the main streets. It's also with easy reach of

Looe and other towns. I would highly recommend this cabin and would stay here again if we holiday around polperro again.

Spacious lodge, in need of some updating.

  • 3 of 5

Spacious and well equipped lodge with great access to the beautiful Cornish coastal paths.

Whilst comfortable and very well equipped the style and decor is old fashioned which may not suit everyone's taste.

Standard of park facilities are poor and in great need of investment. Owner did not respond well to criticism sadly.

Owner's Response: We welcome honest, constructive feedback and continually review & upgrade our facilities to ensure guests enjoy a comfortable, clean & well equipped environment for their vacation. We are pleased that this review emphasises spaciousness & well equipped. The lodge is aimed more for comfort than modern decor. We provide a 42" flat screen TV (lounge) a seperate flat screen TV (master bedroom) a two seater leather recliner couch to compliment the other two couches in the lounge. Recently we have added new single beds, duvets, microwave & slow cooker for our guests convenience. Externally improvements made include: extended decking areas, swing seats (X2), sun loungers, Weber style charcoal BBQ, table, chairs, and sun parasol for outside living. Our aim is one of continual improvement & customer satisfaction.Three stars is dissapointing & unusual (all previous reviews have been 5*). It illustrates different perceptions & preferences but reinforces the importance of continual review and improvement - thank you.

Fantastic holiday home

  • 5 of 5

Butterfly Lodge is a well equipped, clean and tidy holiday home in a great spot for exploring the local area. The living areas and decking is spacious and perfect for a family or group stay. The lodge is well situated in a quiet corner of the park but it is nice to have the pool across the road if you want to use it.

We loved Looe and Polperro - both beautiful Cornish towns well worth exploring.

Don't forget to take hand towels for the bathroom like we did!

Thank you.

Welcoming, quiet, comfortable and homely log cabin

  • 5 of 5

Lovely quiet camp site. With a warm swimming pool, good sports facilities for keeping children and adults entertained. Club house food was good but selection of fresh groceries limited in the shop.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your appreciated comments Elizabeth & choosing Butterfly Lodge. Granted the site shop is a little limited in choice but carries more than just basics (bread / milk etc). I recommend shopping at a big supermaket en-route (e.g. Sainsburys, Plymouth - just off A38). The big supermarkets will also deliver to the lodge if you order on-line. Best Regards Tony & Elizabeth

Spacious comfortable lodge

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the lodge with our 3 children. It was spacious and comfortable and had everything we needed. The park was quiet and peaceful and the pool was large and not crowded. There are lots of things to do in the local area and we walked to Talland Bay and to Polperro. The kids especially enjoyed the beaches. We would definitely recommend this lodge and will consider staying there again.
