A hidden gem at the foot of the Surrey Hills, Hurtwood Park is owned by Faces drummer Kenney Jones. While the clubhouse at its heart is certainly impressive, it actually started life as a twisted old barn in Ockley before Kenney picked it up and rebuilt it himself. Today, the club that grew out of his vision now plays host to the great and the good of polo, including Prince Charles and his sons. Highlights this year include the Itchycoo Park Festival in June and Polo Rocks in July.
