Powderham Castle, UK

Powderham Castle, settled at western banks of the River Exe in Devon (UK), was built between 1390 and 1420 by Sir Philip Courtenay. It was damaged in the Civil War and later repaired and modified by several generations of the Courtenay family.
The castle remains the family home of the Courtenays still today and can be visited in guided tours.
For more detailed information please visit the Powderham Castle official website.

As I spent so much time in Devon in recent years, and as Powderham Castle is so close to my homebase in Exeter, it has become a place I visited many times.

Most images shown here are taken on the castle grounds, which also is home to some farm animals. And if you stroll further you can find the partially ruined Belvedere Tower. The evening we spent at Dawlish Warren right at the sea.

It was actually on this day trip in May 2006, when I decided to get myself my first digital SLR camera soon.
