Welcome to Beacon Hill Estate,

Beacon Hill is a special property rich in history and an escape for sojourners over the last 150 years. As the name suggests, Beacon Hill has been a land mark and a light on a hill since early in the 1860’s when Major Robert Paton brought his young family from England via India to make his home here. Throughout the generations visitors to Beacon Hill have recognised the special qualities of peace and tranquillity and inspiration that have become a lasting legacy of the founding families. For more on the Beacon Hill history take a look at our heritage page under about us.
