Located on the banks of the Exe Powderham Castle has an enviable setting. There are guided tours which are very informative and it's obvious the guides enjoy their job. There is plenty to see on the ground floor but access to the first floor is via the grand staircase and its a ver grand, very long staircase. Again, a webcam would be useful. Don't be put off if you can only view the ground floor, you won't be disappointed. The grounds are a delight. Powderham is a venue for many outdoor events, antique fairs, classic cars etc. in the summer there are outdoor concerts. The best are the ones where you can take chairs and a picnic. Some people lay on the most elaborate picnics, take a camera. If you are really lucky,mad we were on one occasion, you can be sipping a glass of champagne, the deer grazing down by the river and then, as if on cue, the Orient Express steams past giving a toot. A goose bump moment. Light snacks are available in the Courtyard tea room and there is a restaurant in the Country Store. The restaurant has views across to the castle. There is a good plant shop. A House of Marbles and the Kitchen Store itself is excellent. Plenty of parking.
