Powderham Castle and Grounds

Powderham Castle provides a magical backdrop for the Powderham Food Festival, as it enjoys a unique, picturesque setting within an ancient deer park beside the Exe estuary. Located just south of Exeter, Powderham Castle is easily accessible from Exeter, Devon, the South West, London and beyond.

Over 600 years of history can be discovered within the walls of one of Devon’s oldest family homes. Powderham came to the Courtenay family in the dowry of Edward I’s granddaughter, and her son, Sir Philip Courtenay, began building the Castle in 1391. It has remained in the family to this day, and recently became home to the new Earl & Countess of Devon, the 28th generation to move in. Take in the splendour of Powderham Castle as you sample the region’s finest produce and entertainment for foodies of every generation.
