Move now! Spring is traditionally the time for new beginnings and, with the optimism surrounding the Royal Wedding, this year is no exception. It’s also the start of the house selling season, so welcome to ‘Lifestyles’ with some really lovely homes from across the region. Whilst houses prices may have ‘plateaued’ and market conditions generally remain challenging, the market in our particular area has remained remarkably resilient, throughout 2010 and again this year. One thing I can say is that the buyers out there at present are serious and committed. Similarly, the sellers in the market now are equally motivated and serious about selling so if you are thinking of moving, spring 2011 may well prove to be the ideal time.

Zaha Hadid

Architect of the moment

Time Magazine’s most influential Thinker of 2010 and the first female recipient of the Pritzker Architecture Prize, Zaha Hadid is undeniably the architect of the moment as well as the world’s most famous female architect. The more so since being confirmed on 2nd October as having been awarded the highly coveted 2010 RIBA Stirling Prize, Britain’s most prestigious architectural award. With a dip and a curve, a swoosh and a swerve, Zaha Hadid extends space. Her deliciously delirious caverns and dangerously cantilevered volumes never stop once they get going. They swell into concert halls, extend into art galleries and leap from ubiquitous mountainsides. With commissions all over the globe, this 58 year-old Iraqi-born British architect is reshaping our world with a bravura all her own. Indeed Hadid has been changing the way we see our world for a while now. Raised in Baghdad and schooled in mathematics in Beirut, she eventually settled in London - a hot spot for avant-garde architecture in the 1970s where she attended the city’s Architectural Association. There she caught


critics’ attention with her thesis design. Entitled “Malevich Tectonic”, it re-imagined the banks of the Thames as the site for a Russian revolutionary explosion. She gained public notoriety for her Hong Kong Peak design of 1981, in which she dissolved the mountains into habitable shards. For years very little of her work actually turned into buildings, but in the new millennium we seem to be ready for her vision. Her science centre in Wolfsburg, her bridge in Zaragoza and her ski jump in Innsbruck have all now shown us that her vision can become a reality. A big part of her recent success in actually realising her seductive images is the fact that the computer now lets us build almost anything we can imagine. With the help of Patrik Schumacher, her long-time collaborator and a major force in the theory as well as the practice of computer-based design, Hadid is creating larger and ever more daring structures around the world. Her award-winning MAXXI the National Museum of XXI Century Arts in Rome, a spiralling stack of light-

filled galleries, opened this May. Her Guangzhou Opera House, a bulging auditorium that looks like the physical translation of an opera singer’s voice, will open soon. Hadid's signature style is also indisputable in the exclusive private residence currently under development in California, USA. The powerful dichotomy between intimacy and exposure is evident in the extreme.

The undulating forms of Hadid’s London Aquatics Centre will greet visitors to the 2012 Olympics. The architectural concept of the Centre is inspired by the fluctuating geometry of water in motion creating spaces and a surrounding environment in sympathy with the river landscape of the Olympic Park. A billowing roof sweeps up from the ground as if a wave enclosing the pools of the Centre with its unifying gesture of fluidity. Hadid has always been a global leader in pioneering research and design investigation. Collaborations with artists, designers, engineers and clients such as BMW, Chanel and Swarovski have advanced her diversity and knowledge, whilst the implementation of stateof-the-art technologies have aided the realisation of fluid, dynamic and

therefore complex architectural structures which transform our vision of the future with new spatial concepts and bold, visionary forms. Her design alongside Schumacher for the Sunrise Tower in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia most effectively engages with this city in multiple ways. The design houses 5 different programmatic components - residential, hotel, offices, retail and parking - all of which are distributed through 66 floors in total.  By exploring potential synergies at different levels and anchoring itself to the existing urban fabric, this stunning building creates a platform of services that engage with neighbouring developments, sustaining critical mass and a sense of community. Perennially swathed in Issey Miyake or other Japanese designer couture, wearing large and abstract jewellery, she has been known to make grand and witty pronouncements to large audiences whilst

texting from her mobile phone at the same time. She is also, quite simply, both Anglo-Arab and a woman. Hadid is the only notable Arabborn designer to have achieved success in the West and the first independent female architect to do so who is not part of an husband-and-wife team. She was the first woman and Arab-born person to win Architecture’s equivalent of the Nobel Prize, the Pritzker Prize (2004). Singularly she is the first woman to win the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Stirling Prize (2010), having been awarded the UK’s premier architectural accolade for her MAXXI the National Museum of XXI Century Arts in Rome. Though she does not like being put into any category, she does believe that her childhood growing up amongst the piles of patterned carpets in Baghdad, in a city where modern architecture blended with structures

that seemed to grow out of the soil and sand, influenced her work. “Baghdad, like all cities that are on the water, has timelessness, a fluidity that also comes from being in the East. In that flatness, there are moments when you are there, or in Cairo, or Istanbul, when time is frozen in moments, what you are seeing could have been there 5,000 years ago. But what I also took away from Iraq was a belief in progress, innovation and modernisation. I grew up with that. It had a big impact on me. There was a particular kind of modernist style there too, one filled with the play of light and shadow, where inside and outside mingled.” Now Hadid is far away from Baghdad. Several hundred people work for her in her converted school in Islington, although she still teaches in Vienna and lectures around the world: “I can do nearly as much as I want to.” Instead of just inspiring others, as her designs have done for several decades, she is doing it herself. “I have more work than ever,” she sighs, “but you never know whether a client is right or not; a situation is right or not. I’ve been in the fridge so long I don’t want to say no; I am adjusting to doing commercial work, which means I have to work differently, with different

employees. It has to be done well, not on the cheap, well-detailed and, with the way we work, we usually can’t use standard systems, but it is doable.” However it seems as if buildings are no longer enough for Zaha Hadid. She has always designed furniture, condensing her forms into objects you can sit, or more aptly, lounge upon. Now she is designing complete kitchens, tables and even cars - a streamlined, zero-emission city runabout with ergonomic, organic surfaces wrapping around either three or four wheels. Her most remarkable forays into product design include a curving tap for Avilion, strap-on boots for Lacoste which unfurl around the shins the way her buildings unfold in space and most recently four collections of wallcoverings for leading wallcovering innovator, Marburg Wallcoverings, as part of the exclusive ART BORDERS series. These collections defy convention in their vivid amplified spatiality and fluidity energising the room to multiply, compress and add dimension. Dynamic lines and expressive organic shapes intensify depth through the interplay of shimmering metallic effects juxtaposed with matt and discreet areas. With these swooshes, Zaha Hadid is bringing body and form together. It is an union that her organic forms have always implied.

Extreme Bentley Creating the most powerful Bentley road car ever meant pushing the boundaries of 21st century technology, Steven Hall takes a drive...


I arrive at the stunning Bentley Kent showroom in Sevenoaks, Kent, not all of my days are like this, having been given the keys by Brand Manager Stephen Jackson my 'task' over the weekend is to test drive the all new Bentley Continental Supersports. This new edition is lighter and much faster than other Bentleys and it runs on bio-fuel. Think of the Bentley Continental Supersports as a great engineering research programme which thankfully came to fruition. That's because Bentley engineers spent their spare time tinkering with various aspects of the GT Speed to see how far they could push the performance envelope and wow did they push it. The result is the fastest, most hardcore Bentley that's ever been produced

with a top speed of 204mph. What it stands for is this. It is the fastest road-going Bentley ever, and the fastest Bentley full stop. This Continental Supersports weighs less than the regular GT CoupÊ or the slightly quicker Speed version, so now it’s two and a quarter tonnes instead of two and a half, and has yet more power from its 6.0-litre, W12, twin-turbo engine. This engine is effectively two narrowangle V6s next to each other, sharing possibly the most intricately machined crankshaft I have seen. Time to step inside and slip into the firm, enveloping leather bucket seats created by Bugatti and hand-trimmed in the Bentley Crewe factory. The carbon fibre trim, console

and fascia are very much a radical departure from the use of wood and leather, giving an ‘oh so special’ look and feel. One touch of the starter button and the beast is alive with an all powerful thrum, the firmness of the suspension noted as soon as I pull away. There are four ride programmes - comfort, normal, sport one and

sport two. I soon discover that riding in anything softer than sport one is simply not needed, even for commuter levels of comfort. Body roll is never an issue, cornering loads simply don't affect you. The Bugatti bucket seats have that sorted and you are nailed into the seat. One small issue is making doubly sure that with

621bhp at your control you don't enter bends too quickly. However the carbon-ceramic brakes are forgiving and give you a sporting chance! As I leave Kent on my way to the West Country the power and speed is impressive to say the least. The original Continental GT Coupe

was launched some eight years ago. This new version however takes things to a whole new level. The thirteen percent power increase and drop in weight of 110kg means the power to weight ratio increases from 238 to 271bhp per tonne, the 0 to 100mph now stands at just 8.9 seconds, this really is supercar performance. Sitting on 20 inch alloys at 40mph plus the car glides and the real enjoyment begins. As I make my way onto the M25 I think the Bentley brief with the new Continental Supersports was simply 'faster than you would ever want to go’. Trust me, Bentley's Chief Engineer Dr Ulrich Eichhorn achieved his aim. Eichhom is the force behind Bentley's wellestablished policy of continuous

improvement and his passion for his cars is simply second to none. With all this 'speed' it should not be lost that the new Continental Supersports is Bentley's version of an economy car. It has been painstakingly engineered to produce its 621bhp whether burning E85 (15 percent petrol, 85 percent ethanol) or pure pump petrol or any combination of the two. This makes the engine management system versatile enough to cope and is a more important engineering achievement than is generally perceived. Bentley aim to have its entire range with this capability by 2012, which will allow Bentley to claim that supercars can go green without being boring, slow or small.

Slow, boring or small? None of these would be used to describe the Supersports, complete with an extra expanse of meshed grille, two nonsense extractor grills on the top surface of the bonnet along with a complete lack of shiny trim. Instead smoked steel mouldings and a set of the most beautiful gleaming black alloys are the order of the day. Wearing these the car's huge but light carbon-ceramic brakes and some special lightweight suspension parts remove some 20kg from the weight of the standard Continental. Weight is also lost by lighter front seats and the removal of back seats (although a four-seater version is now an option).

My dream has ended. After four hours of driving the fastest and most powerful Bentley ever built I arrive in the West Country just in time for dinner at the stunning new South Sands Hotel in Salcombe. Whilst it may not be a top priority for every owner, the clear aim was to create a top-end performance car that in the right hands could be a real match and more for the Ferraris and Porsches.

Liquid Gold Alison Jee takes a look at one of France's best-known exports.

Cognac. The very word embodies sophistication and class. Thisancient drink should not be confused with brandies from Spain, Cyprus or other countries and it should also not be confused with its sister spirit Armagnac. True Cognac is only from the Cognac region in France, an area stretching from La Rochelle in the north east, down past Aubeterre in the south east. And right in the centre of the Cognac region is an area known as Grande Champagne, one of six areas (or ‘crus’) spanning a total of 13,000 hectares and the region where some of the finest examples of this wonderful drink are produced. The Cognac market tends to be dominated by four large companies, who between them control some 85 per cent of the market. True cognac connoisseurs though, often delight in seeking out those cognacs prepared by the smaller, independent houses. In the heart of Grande Champagne is the town of Segonzac, home since 1270 of Cognac Frapin, one of the finest estates in the region. For 20 generations now, members of the Frapin family have cultivated their vines on the Château de Fontpinot estate and produced some of the best Cognac money can buy.


Frapin is in the enviable position of owning all its vineyards (300 hectares) in the ‘Premier Grand Cru’ (or first growth), Grande Champagne region and it is the largest privately owned domaine. The temperate climate, thanks to its location halfway between the Atlantic and the upper part of the Charente valley, where the soil is particularly chalky, produces delicate Cognac’s with a pronounced floral aroma. Interestingly, the soil is almost identical to that in Reims, home of Champagne, hence the name ‘Grande Champagne’. The secret is in the soil: The Frapin estates are an example of what is known as ‘reasonable agriculture’. This philosophy takes into account all the parameters currently known and mastered: the biology of the vine and its parasites, the weather conditions and the soil. Frapin vines are cultivated traditionally, respecting the natural balance of the soil, and each year restoring natural elements such as the pruned branches and residue of the grapes from the distillation. Also, the soil is allowed to rest for a minimum of seven years before being replanted with vines. This way, insects which feed off the roots of the wines can be totally eliminated and, with them the risk of a virus developing. These fine Cognacs need up to 50 years in the barrel to taste at their best. Cognac vines are tended differently from those used for wine: the vines are trained higher and are spaced out further. After the grapes are pressed, no acidity or sugar is added during the fermentation process. This results in a liquid which is perfect for distillation. The vines in Cognac today are mainly the Ugni Blanc. Up until 1880’s when the dreaded phylloxera struck the region the Folle Blanche grape predominated. Today, just a fraction of the original eau-de-vie made from the Folle Blanche grape remains and at Frapin it is carefully stored and guarded, and used sparingly! In 1888 Pierre Frapin replaced his vineyards which had been destroyed by phylloxera - with new American rootstock. The following year he took part in the World Fair in Paris, where Gustave Eiffel was building his famous structure. Frapin was awarded a gold medal for his Cognac and to celebrate this he commissioned Eiffel to design a

commemorative cellar (or ‘chai’) which to this day remains a local landmark. Well aged It is the ageing process where the magic of Cognac comes into its own. The cellars at Frapin are in fact above ground, but of varying heights, in order to control the temperature and humidity. The Cognac matures in casks made of Limousin oak, which gives the Cognac its warm colours and releases its tannins as it comes into contact with the eau-devie. Frapin’s cellar master Olivier Paultes is in charge of watching each barrel’s maturation carefully. This involves moving them from one building to another, sometimes leaving them on the earth floor or another time moving them to a higher floor where the air will be drier. The aroma of a Cognac cellar is hard to describe, but it is an unforgettable one. The evaporation of a little bit of the alcohol from the cognac barrels (the ‘angel’s share’ as it is known – up to 3 percent a year) adds to the musky pungency – and not surprisingly the aroma is at its most pungent where the oldest cognacs are held, in dark, cobwebbed cellars. How to taste cognac: Many people mistakenly believe that the older a Cognac is, the darker it is. Not so, the colour is given by the cask in which it has matured. How should you taste Cognac? According to

Paultes, you shouldn’t swirl the glass first to release the aroma, as you would do a glass of wine. “You should move the volatile elements when you swirl, so sniff it first without moving the glass,” he says. “At the correct temperature a good Cognac will release a pleasing, immediate freshness and balanced fruitiness. And when aged in the barrel, Cognac acquires an aromatic complexity, with spicy tones and vanilla notes. ”It is often drunk as an aperitif as well as a digestif”. When you have the Cognac in your mouth, you shouldn’t suck in air as you would with a wine, but do swirl it around your mouth – this is important as it will establish its ‘length’. The longer the taste remains in your mouth, the better the Cognac,” he adds. An unbalanced Cognac, or one which is too young, will be fiery without the softness and finish which comes with age. And if you aren’t picking up all the aromas in your Cognac, perhaps you are serving it in the wrong glass? Traditionalists still favour the balloon glass, but according to research conducted recently by the Bureau National Interprofessionnel du Cognac (or BNIC as it is known in the trade) top sommeliers recommend the tulip shaped glass. Not only was this shape found to be the most attractive, easy to hold and easiest for admiring colour, importantly, thanks to its wide bowl and narrow neck, it concentrates the Cognac’s nose and allows the taster to appreciate properly the subtlety and layers of aromatic complexity. Try drinking Cognac from different glasses – the change it can make to the contents of the same bottle can be quite remarkable. A classic champagne flute is another excellent glass from which to enjoy Cognac – the concentration seems to remove the fierceness of the alcohol and gives a delicious fruitiness. Be warned though, it is very easy to sip your way through rather a lot when it tastes so wonderfully smooth! Cognac Frapin’s range starts at around £40 a bottle with the VS, then moves up through VSOP, Chateau Fontpinot, VIP XO and Extra. Its award-winning Le Multimillésime, is a blend of three superb vintages: 1982, 1983 and 1985, which has been exclusively harvested, distilled and aged at Chateau Fontpinot. The range also includes rarer blends such as the Cuvée 1888, selected from the most precious stock, some of

which even predates 1888, passed down through the generations and a tribute to the extraordinary achievements of Pierre Frapin. This extremely rare, limited edition Cognac carries a high retail price though – Harrods sells it for £4,500 a bottle.

Little Black Dress After 10 years away from the catwalk Elizabeth Emanuel showcases her Spring/Summer 2011 Collection dedicated to the Little Black Dress.


Inspired by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's, the collection can be described as a young and vibrant Holly Golightly living life to the full in 2011. The collection also takes a glance back to the renowned black dress that Elizabeth co-designed, transforming Lady Diana into a princess. "I've chosen the little black dress as a theme because it is such an iconic fashion item. The little black dress embodies glamour, allure, sophistication and can still also be funky, sexy and slinky." The collection is classic but edgy with an emphasis on bias cut and interesting silhouettes. Fabrics in the ready-to-wear range appear in varied shades of black and include silk moss crepe - chosen for its beautiful stretch and drape, and a black loop theme runs through both the dresses and the accessories. The special edition range features silk moss crepe, duchess satin and Chantilly lace with a strong emphasis on texture and layering, incorporating a raggie dress style. "I love creating textures using fabric and embroidery in the same way as an artist uses paint. It’s a technique I learnt when I designed costumes for the Royal Ballet. In a sense a woman’s body becomes the canvas for my art – hence the name of my label, Art of Being." This is Elizabeth’s first public collection under the name of her new brand, Art of Being, and the show is sponsored by Jaguar. Iconic British fashion designer, Elizabeth Emanuel is famous the world over for her role in creating the Royal Wedding Dress for Lady Diana Spencer and the infamous black evening dress worn at her first public engagement with Prince Charles. Throughout the 1990s and 2000s, Elizabeth designed exclusive dresses for the most renowned faces from across the globe including members of the Royal Family and countless famous faces. Elizabeth’s other involvements include designing for the ballet, television advertisements, theatrical productions, music videos, and exclusive pieces for the EMMY Awards, American Idol, the X Factor Finals and the Brit Awards. Elizabeth has also featured as a guest judge on Britain’s Next Top Model, multiple news and discussion programmes both in the UK and internationally and was responsible for the design of the famous Virgin Airlines uniforms.

Splashing, dashing, restless sea, Never still you seem to be, Sometimes angry, sometimes sad, Sometimes you laugh as though you are glad. Little children love you well, Love all the wondrous tales you tell, Love to watch you come and go, In the tides that ebb and flow.

Just a few steps up from the sandy beach and perfectly situated to take advantage of one of the most magnificent coastal views in North Cornwall is ‘The Sea House’, a privately owned home and winner of the prestigious South West Local Authority Building Control Awards (LABC) for Best Individual Dwelling. The owners commissioned The Bazeley Partnership, chartered architects, to interpret their vision and create a contemporary home worthy of the special cliff top location. As you might expect a home of this stature and quality demands the very best lifestyle accoutrements that money can buy. The architect suggested that at the heart of this luxury retreat there should be a glorious Mark Wilkinson Kitchen and dining area flooded with natural light, simply a joy to be in and a wonderful place to prepare food, especially that harvested from the natural resources of the nearby ocean. Mark Wilkinson Furniture were

recommended by the architects to their client as a company of international standing who could meet the exacting design requirements and build quality that the client’s brief for the kitchen installation demanded. The architects and the Mark Wilkinson team worked closely together through the design development to successfully integrate the new kitchen into the whole scheme. The quality and high specification set by the architects for all elements of the house could only be achieved through employing the very

best craftsmen and working with those who could deliver the standards required. The Bazeley Partnership reported that Mark Wilkinson Furniture not only met these standards but exceeded the expectations of the client and architects, the combined effort of which was recognised in the LABC Award for the project. The design, style chosen for the kitchen was Mark Wilkinson’s ‘New England ’which takes its inspiration from coastal origins and embodies a great sense of timelessness and the spirit of places like Nantucket, Providence and other naturally beautiful communities of America’s Eastern Seaboard. Travelling this area is what influenced Mark Wilkinson to create his own ‘New England’ style. He recalls, “It was the colonial era houses with their white-washed elevations, the spectacular landscape and the seafaring culture which becomes a very seductive potion when mixed with fresh lobster, purity of air and the sound of waves breaking on the shore. So I brought ’New England’ home again.”

Perhaps it is no accident that the Atlantic Ocean washes the shoreline of both New England and North Cornwall bringing together an ebb and flow of cultural ideas and shared spirituality. The inspirational look and feel of the kitchen design is further enhanced by the sumptuous blue-grey work surfaces in granite called ’Blue Eyes’. The choice of appliances provides maximum efficiency for easy holidaystyle cooking and eating whether dining indoors

or ‘al fresco’ on one of the balconies or on the patio. The iconic Aga, Amana fridge/freezer, Miele dishwasher, microwave and wine storage, sinks by The Kitchen Sink Company, taps by Perrin and Rowe and extraction by Neff, all perform together like a well rehearsed orchestra giving maximum time to enjoy the music of the waves, the luxurious facilities of the house or relax in the Cornish sunshine. This award winning luxurious five bedroom

home was completed in February 2010. The accommodation also includes a games room, a pool room and a garden room. The success of the project was largely due to the shared vision of excellence by the owners, their architects The Bazeley Partnership, the building contractors Ryearch and Mark Wilkinson Furniture.

why polo insiders love theVeuve Clicquot Gold Cup Antje Derks, Polo Correspondent, The Times


or those who have never seen the sport of polo, the Veuve Clicquot Gold Cup for The British Open Championship carries the cachet of golf’s British Open, or Wimbledon’s tennis fortnight in both its significance, and for the way it is revered within polo circles. It remains the pinnacle of the English highgoal polo season for players, patrons and spectators alike. Indeed, since its inception over half a century ago, in 1956, it has become the most important pro-am polo tournament played outside Argentina, and the most coveted trophy in the sport. Its home is Cowdray Park Polo Club, where annually, nearing 40 matches are played over a three-week period. Set in an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' within Viscount Cowdray’s 16,500 acre estate in Midhurst, West

Sussex, many of the matches take place against the backdrop of the South Downs, in front of the world famous Cowdray ruins. For many, it has become a permanent fixture in the summer social and sporting diary as part of the old-fashioned “season”, along with Henley Regatta, Cowes week, Wimbledon and the Test match at Lord’s Cricket Ground. It has an ambience where Pimms, picnics and Princes blend seamlessly in the throng. Not to forget, of course, the ubiquitous popping of corks from title sponsors Champagne House Veuve Clicquot, who have supported the championship for the past decade and a half. Cowdray Park is recognised worldwide as the home of British polo and, indeed, Cowdray Park Polo Club celebrated its Centenary year in 2010 and is looking forward to a very bright future with a growing youth membership. The first competitive tournaments were

recorded on the House grounds in 1910, and continued to develop and gain popularity until the event of the Second World War, which saw the sport all but die out, due to the disbanding of several Cavalry regiments, with mechanisation superceding the role of the Cavalry in the British Army. Indeed, Cowdray Park’s role in the reestablishment of polo in England following the war can never be underestimated. The sport’s revival was largely due to a legend within polo: John Churchill Pearson, 3rd Viscount Cowdray, who passed away in 1995, in his eighties. Having lost an arm in Dunkirk during WW II, the 3rd Viscount Cowdray continued playing the sport and even umpired into his Seventies using a prosthetic arm designed and fashioned by his gunmakers, Churchills, which was fitted by medical experts at the renowned limb hospital at Roehampton.

It is an ambience where Pimms, picnics and Princes blend seamlessly in the throng. The founding father turned Cowdray Park into one of the most famous polo clubs in the world. Underpinning its development was the fact that he wanted people to come and play there and feel welcome. He charged paltry entrance fees, gathered up his friends from his war years, imported ponies from Argentina and then lent the ponies to his friends for free to form teams. Earl Mountbatten even had a team there in the Fifties. The warmth he generated then is still at the very heart of the club today, and is palpable as you walk in through the entrance gates. HRH The Prince of Wales, referring to the Gold Cup for the British Open at Cowdray Park in Polo at Cowdray*, said “…its final is today the highlight of the polo year. I have been trying to win it for the

past 14 years, but despite being in the final twice this particular prize has eluded me!” The love of the event has indeed passed down from father to son. HRH Harry Wales has also played at Cowdray within a Gold Cup tournament. In other words, regardless of who you are, it feels as if you are family at Cowdray Park. There is a special atmosphere of warmth at the club felt by both those inside the sport, and often remarked on by neophytes to both playing and spectating. The Gold Cup tournament is played over a three-week period annually in July, culminating in the final, which attracts hardened polo addicts and polo first-timers alike, from all corners of the world, to witness two teams who

have battled their way to the winners’ podium lifting the splendid golden trophy. While a high goal event today, it began with humbler origins. A little over fifty years ago, an Argentine farmer called Antonio Heguy came over to England on holiday with three of his friends. Lord Cowdray had invited them to play in his new tournament. They arrived with a boat-load of home bred horses – in stark contrast to today’s multimillion pound high-goal team operations. Back then the Heguy team, Los Indios, beat the home side nine goals to four to become the first winners of the Gold Cup. No one could have predicted then just how prestigious the Gold Cup tournament would later become.

Tournament entrants are put into leagues following an open draw from a Veuve Clicquot ice bucket, and a palpable frisson is always felt around the room as teams see who they will face in the opening round. These days, mobile phone cameras record the draw immediately and are sent to Argentina. News of the draw is instant, and in polo, makes world news. The top eight teams progress through to the quarter finals, and the semi-finals of the Gold Cup are played on the Thursday before the Sunday final. Aficionados believe – without question – that this is the best day’s polo in Europe, attracting a large crowd. It is not a day of pomp and ceremony. It is laidback and relaxed off the field, often with nail-biting tension on it. Semi-finals day attracts like-minded polo addicts. It is regarded as the afternoon on which most polo insiders gather to discuss the issues of the English high-goal season. The list of competitors who have taken part in the Gold Cup reads like a ‘Who’s Who’ from the worlds of business and aristocracy, as well as attracting some of the greatest polo playing dynasties from South America.

The Heguy family continues to be a formidable force on the polo field, along with the Novillo Astradas, the Pieres and the MacDonagh families. The current world number one, Argentine Adolfo Cambiaso, with his swarthy looks, brooding demeanour, and brilliance on the pitch, first entered the Gold Cup scene in 1990, as a 16-year-old, 7-goal player, playing alongside the legendary Carlos Gracida, ten times on a Gold Cup winning team, and one of the most elegant players ever to grace the game. Gracida was in the Tramontana team, who still hold the record for winning the Gold Cup four times in the Eighties. English competitors have included the Vestey family, with most recently Nina (now Clarkin) the first and only female to win the Gold Cup, with Hildon in 2003; Lord Waterford’s family, including Lord Charles and Lord Patrick Beresford, and of course Prince Philip and HRH, The Prince of Wales, who were regular Gold Cup competitors. Continuing to carry the flag for the Cowdray family, has been John Cowdray’s

daughter in law Lila Pearson, who reached the semi-finals with her team several years ago, and, in 2009, brought Cowdray Vikings to the event. Lila is also keen for a Cowdray team to feature in the Gold Cup in this, the club’s centenary year. The business magnate, the late Kerry Packer, and subsequently his son Jamie Packer, who did so much to raise the stakes with their Ellerston Team, setting the benchmark for professionalism within the sport, and the breeding of ponies, have become a fixture as have other leading lights from business around the world. England internationals Mark and Luke Tomlinson have played for the Apes Hill Club Barbados in the Gold Cup in recent seasons, and won it in 2003 with Nina Vestey. “To take part in that means you are taking part in something big, increasing your determination to win,” said Mark. “Playing at the British Open is always special, it’s the most important tournament in the UK. In fact, besides the Argentine Open, it's probably the most important tournament in the world.”

Indeed, visitor numbers have risen in the last ten or so years from around five thousand to in excess of fifteen thousand. It is a scene that is typically English but international at the same time. A hint of wellies and waxed jackets, in case of rain, mixed with designer elegance and high heels gives the Gold Cup an indefinable chic that could mean you were in Palermo, Deauville or even Palm Beach. Yet the cricket square and castle ruins next to the polo grounds mark it out as quintessentially English. The Gold Cup is as much about the beautiful tented shopping village, with its ninety boutiques selling high-end clothes, jewellery and even upmarket adventure holidays, as it is about the polo match. Since 1995, leading Champagne maison Veuve Clicquot has been the title sponsor of this prestigious polo event.

Roots that run deep. In anticipation of the Spring launch of his first book, Garden, acclaimed landscape garden designer Randle Siddeley reflects on a lifetime in the garden design business.


The roots of Randle Siddeley’s passion for gardens certainly run deep. From early childhood experiences of the great outdoors, to teenage years spent shadowing his father, renowned interior designer John Siddeley, an unerring enthusiasm for design and horticulture was cultivated during Randle’s seemingly industrious youth. Now an acclaimed landscape garden designer with 35 years’ experience under his belt, Randle, whose official title is The Lord Kenilworth, has written his first book, Garden. It not only celebrates a successful career in landscape garden design, but also gives an intimate insight into the milestones of a lifelong passion. As a boy growing up in Suffolk, surrounded by Constable’s rural landscape, Randle was trusted with his own garden plots to tend in the grounds of the family homes - Old Oak Cottage, and later, The Deans. He delighted in watching seeds that he had planted transform into flowers, and it was in these early days that, in his own words, he “realised that a garden allowed you to escape and to create your own world.” Much knowledge was gleaned from the gardener, Mr Buckledy, who Randle interrogated persistently about his gardening practices, apparently much to the amusement (and patience) of this old gardening hand. In his teenage years, jobs at Crampthorne’s nursery, and the Chelsea florists Pulbrook & Gould, honed Randle’s enthusiasm, skills and understanding of plant life. However, it was his work as a young man alongside his father which brought about an interest in the synergy between inside and outside space, and which proved to be the springboard for his career in landscape design. Under his father’s expert guidance, Randle learnt the importance of understanding the mechanics of design, something reflected in the attention to detail applied to his projects today. As explained in Garden “He [John Siddeley] believed, rightly, that a good designer should understand the construction of a house and everything that went on behind its walls.… .The same thing applies to landscape design. It is not enough to select plants or choose the right colour of stone. You have to understand aspect, light, climate, soil, water tables and wind direction. You have to be able to look beyond what is there and see how something

radically different might work. You have to feel a sympathy with the setting of the house and garden, with the architecture and age of the building, with the people whose garden this is. And then you have to work within constraints of budget and time to achieve a magical result.” These are the challenges of garden design that Randle took on board when he set up his landscaping business in 1975. Today, his twin companies, Siddeley Landscape Designs and Randle Siddeley Associates are well regarded globally for their commitment to excellence and bespoke design. From private residential gardens in town and country, to large commercial schemes in the UK and overseas, Randle and his team apply visionary imagination, understanding and technical skill to each and every project. In what has become a huge growth industry during the past few decades, the awardwinning team has embraced changing working practices, concerns and emerging trends, including sustainability. Randle was instrumental in pioneering the concept of design-and-build, strongly believing that landscape design should encompass every stage of a garden’s creation - from concept to installation, and even maintenance. Today, well thought out, attractive outside space is recognised as being as important as the interior design of a home in terms of value, appeal and longevity. Unlike interior design, the organic nature of a garden presents the difficulty of creating something that continuously evolves. In Garden, Randle demonstrates varied solutions to this challenge, and the specific challenges of each particular project, handpicked from his extensive portfolio of work. “The book consists of a fantastic cross section of projects, “Randle explains. “There is everything from traditional English country estates, through to contemporary urban spaces. It also illustrates the extent of our international projects - in North America, the Mediterranean and the Middle East. Each project is extremely special in its own way and I like to think every one is totally unique because of our commitment to working closely with the client to ensure their personal style is reflected in their garden.” Indeed, what unites the 26 case studies included in the book is a desire to make

pleasing and personal. In the touching heartfelt opening introduction to Garden, Randle concludes, “Since boyhood, I have seen the happiness that gardens give, a reward for all the patience and hard labour they entail. I think their enduring popularity is to do with what I first discovered at Old Oak Cottage - that sense of creating your own private world. For anyone who desires to do that for themselves, I hope this book will be both a guide and a friend.“

Garden, by Randle Siddeley, will be published in May 2011 by Frances Lincoln, priced at £45.

gardens that suit both the landscape that surrounds them and the people who use them. Randle shows how achieving a strong core design is essential in order to then make valid and effective choices of materials, plants, trees, furniture, lighting and artworks. The book also includes additional advice for those wishing to design their own spectacular garden. Randle recognises that gardens are for many people a chance to engage with nature and create an outdoor space that is both
