This ‘modern extension’ was created in the Victorian era and has majestic linen-fold oak panelling and gilted family tree surrounding the room. It is licensed for ceremonies and provides an exquisite and warm space, thanks to the most impressive open fire. It is perfect for ceremonies of up to 100, or a banquet for 60, and can host a band, DJ or harpist on the minstrels gallery above.
With stunning large windows overlooking the Deer Park and Terrace Rose Garden, this is the perfect space for a bright reception. Surrounded by the enthralling family book collection, you can say your vows with up to 100 guests or comfortably sit 80 for dinner.
Also known as the secret ball room, due to the secret door from the library, was added to the house by William ‘Kitty’ Courtenay, for his own spectacular parties and performances. The views from the tall glass door and bay windows over the estuary will amaze, and steps down lead to the Rose Garden. It’s our largest room and can accommodate 140 guests for a ceremony, or 120 guests for dinner. It’s home to our recently refurbished organ and grand piano, and the spectacular dome is the most magical cover for your first married dance.
The Victorian Rose Garden makes the castle your back drop, with breathtaking views across the deer park to the estuary be-yond. The terrace is ideal for a sunny ceremony or a beautiful champagne reception, nestled amongst traditional roses, chosen for their enchanting scents.
A wooded glade of exotic trees brought over from early voyages to America surround a hidden garden pavilion. As if taken directly from the pages of a fairytale, it is the most idyllic setting for a ceremony or drinks reception.
An iconic landmark standing above the Exe is the 18th Century Powderham Belvedere, originally a ball room and banqueting house as it’s name suggests provides jaw-dropping views over the estate and estuary. The restored roof and structural work allows entry again after over 60 years of an uncertain future. The tower is now open for the most unique of ceremonies and the Belvedere garden can house a modest marquee for a reception of up to 80 guests.
