Avington welcomes visitors with disabilities and our staff will be happy to give assistance when needed. Wherever possible, it would be helpful if we could be notified in advance to ensure that ramps are in place. The Main Hall, the Library and Conservatory are all on the ground floor.  There is one step up to the library and two up to the conservatory. A ramp is available.

There is no lift to the first floor, so the ballroom and drawing room are only accessed by the stairs which are wide and fairly gentle.

There are spacious facilities for the disabled by the orangery.  The grounds are accessible on well maintained gravel paths and lawns.  There is a sloping lawn leading to the church of St Mary’s.


Official Guide Dogs are welcome in the house. Well behaved dogs are permitted in the grounds, but must be kept on leads.
