The Rose Terrace
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.
The American Garden
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 for a truly natural wedding venue.
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 90 guests.
The Riding School
The old Riding School, originally an indoor riding school until a few decades ago, is now a show-stopping space available for weddings. The rustic charm of this great open space makes it perfect for couples looking for a relaxed, barn wedding. The adjacent garden is perfect for outdoor seating and lawn games, and is just a few steps away from the peaceful area beside the lake.
