Catton has been in the hands of the same family since 1405 and still remains the private home of the Neilsons. The present house, originally designed by James Gibbs and built by Smith of Warwick in 1742, is virtually unchanged and contains its original collection of fine family and Royal portraits, as well as 17th and 18th century paintings and antique furniture. There are fascinating family connections with Lord Byron, as well as with Napoleon and the Duke of Cumberland, George III's brother.

Catton has its own Chapel, and the Gardens, comprised of herbaceous and shrub borders at the back and a formal garden to the front, are protected by a HaHa from the stock grazing in the parkland beyond. There are many venerable oak trees throughout the Park as well as the River Trent running along the west side of both the Park and Gardens.
