High church

Jim Gilmore, James Glasson, Adolfo Cambiaso… Fina Jurado can reel off a list of regulars at her former restaurant, Gaudi’s, in Midhurst, West Sussex, that sounds like a who’s who of polo.

When husband Jac decided to retire, Jurado opted for a brave new project. Gaudi’s has been renamed The Church House, an extension has brought light into ancient nooks and, upstairs, in five exquisite bedrooms, antiques are offset against modern hues.

The whole house can be booked for catered exclusive use. Polo players are no longer guaranteed, but glamour on a stick is standard.
