A privately-owned stately home in Hampshire, located east of Winchester in the beautiful Itchen Valley. Described by William Cobbett as “one of the prettiest places in the County”.

The house is first mentioned in the Domesday Book with a fascinating history, playing host to Charles II and George IV. The house 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 the Ballroom upstairs with a magnificent gold plasterwork ceiling and painted panels – yet Avington retains the atmosphere and warmth of a family home.

The venue is open all year round for weddings, meetings, private parties, group visits and corporate events.
