Originally ‘Avon Cottage’, now ‘Avon Castle’, was home to Lord Malmesbury’s tenants and staff at the time when the Lord gave permission for the Ringwood-Christchurch-Bournemouth railway to run through his land mid 1800s. The use of the private ‘Halt’ Avon Lodge was passed onto the Turner-Turner family when they purchased Avon Castle in 1884. The Earl of Egmont had the property as his country seat until 1938 when a developer initially converted the property for offices and then back to residential. Today Avon Castle is known as an up market private residential area where many of the mid 20th century properties have been removed in favour of substantial state of the art, private homes that have established the area as prime residential. Avon Castle has the benefit of being situated only a mile from the market town of Ringwood whilst offering close proximity to road links leading to Bournemouth, Southampton, London and Salisbury. Bordering the New Forest National Park and being approximately a ten minute drive from the sandy beaches of Bournemouth. Avon Castle offers a truly tranquil style of living with the benefits of the A31 (linking to M27) being within half a mile
