History Hunton Park started its life as Hazelwood House in 1810 owned by a wealthy landowner. It became the residence of Lord Rokeby in 1839 before it was completely demolished after a fire. Fortunately it was rebuilt to look almost identical as it did before. After this point the house was home to many different tenants, including Emperor Haile Selassie, before the film industry stepped in and the house was used in The Raging Moon by Bryan Forbes and Hammer Films' Lust For A Vampire. Shortly after this, the property was renamed Hunton Park. A number of owners added various facilities including bedroom blocks, a swimming pool and a bar, and it continues to be updated today to ensure it's a first-class wedding venue offering both history and comfort.
