Once described by William Cobbett as 'one of the prettiest places in the county'.

Avington Park boasts wonderful rooms - the beautifully painted main hall, the library overlooking the south lawns, adjoining and leading onto a unique pair of conservatories, the old dining room and ballroom upstairs with magnificent gold plasterwork ceiling and painted panels - and retains the atmosphere and warmth of a family home. Charles II and George IV both made visits to the house.
