Powderham Castle has been our family home for over 600 years. It was built by Sir Philip Courtenay in the 14th century and, despite many alterations and additions to adapt the Castle to changing times, Philip and his many descendants would undoubtedly still recognise it today.
It is an honour to live in these beautiful and historic surroundings, and it gives the us great pleasure to share it with many visitors each year. There is so much to see, enjoy and appreciate that we cannot take full value from it ourselves. Nor, frankly, could we afford to maintain it without the help and support of our visitors.
You are therefore doubly welcome. Your visit makes a contribution to our shared heritage and we hope that, following your visit, you will leave with fond memories and affection for our home and its many treasured stories.
