Powderham is open from Sunday 20th February - Sunday 30th October 2022, Sunday - Friday (closed on Saturdays), 10am - 4pm. Please check our Opening Times page for further information and for closure dates.

The ground floor of the Castle is accessible to wheelchair users and electric scooters. A wheelchair is available for loan, whilst in the Castle only. The tractor/trailer has a ramp and the Walled Garden Play Area & Pets Corner is accessible, although there are some steep slopes. The Courtenay cafe is also accessible. Disabled parking is available and there is an accessible toilet under the viaduct. 

We have a free car park, which is located down the main drive, over the bridge and on your left.

Disabled parking is also available in the courtyard.

Yes, please visit our Group page.

A reduced rate is offered to groups of 15 or more.

You can take as many photographs as you like outside, but photography is not allowed inside the Castle.

We have two unique guided tours available with our brilliant guides, but we also run daily Open House sessions for those who wish to wander the Castle at their own pace!


Our Upstairs tour lasts approximately 45 minutes, and our State Room tour lasts just over an hour. 

We have our Courtenay cafe, in the courtyard which is open from 11am until 4:30pm.

Alternatively you could picnic in the grounds.

Powderham Castle has been privately owned by the Courtenay family since 1391, so we are not a National Trust property. We do, however, offer several other discounts for English Heritage members, Historic Houses, Royal Oak and more. Please see our ticket and prices page to see our current promotions for 2020.
