Hurn Court was the family seat of the Earl of Malmesbury from the 1700s and has an interesting and well documented provenance including Royalty and other notable historical figures such as Handel, Lord Nelson, author Henry Fielding and Edwardian hostess Lilly Langtry. The surrounding farmland beside the River Stour is retained to this day by the current Earl of Malmesbury's Estate whilst the stately communal parkland in which the house sits is professionally managed and maintained.
