Powderham Castle

Powderham Castle


Built over 600 years ago, Powderham Castle is the historic home of the Earl of Devon. The Castle is still lived in by the Courtenay family and is one of England's best known Stately Homes. The Castle lies in a beautiful setting in an ancient deer park alongside the River Exe and is at the centre of a large traditional estate of about 4,000 acres.

The Castle is open to the public and welcomes thousands of visitors between Easter and October every year and is also exclusively available for private and corporate functions such as dinners, board meetings, dances and balls. The Castle is also approved and licensed for the holding of Civil Marriage Ceremonies and is very popular for wedding receptions.

The grounds play host to events large and small and the Estuary, which forms part of the Estate, has space for those looking for yacht moorings. Above all Powderham has a unique atmosphere, combining beauty, tranquility and history, which those who visit the Castle, for whatever reason, will remember for a long time afterwards, and sometimes for the rest of their lives.
