Access & Directions


One mile south of Caledon village via a minor road.


This is the site of a succession of noble dwellings, a walled demesne with the present house dating from 1779 above a river amidst mature trees.

Detailed History

The rococo layout of the mid-18th century included the Bone House, which survives. The walled demesne was laid out round the house of 1779. John Sutherland worked on improvements in 1807. William Sawrey Gilpin added terraces in the mid-19th century. In the late-19th century the park contained wapiti and black bears.
