Brand new to the Countryman Fairs line up for 2017 is the Powderham Country Show, which takes place within the beautiful grounds of Powderham Castle in Devon.
Powderham is an elegant family home and recognised as one of the country’s leading venues. The Courtenay family have lived in the family estate for over 600 years and have a long history of hosting wonderful events and welcoming people to their magnificent home. With many unique qualities, the all-new Powderham Country Show offers a fantastic opportunity for country sports enthusiasts, families, traders and everyone after a celebration of country life to a truly beautiful part of the world.
The Castle, built in 1392, is set amidst a beautiful Deer Park with breathtaking views across to the Exe Estuary. Its ancient woodland creates a peaceful setting where fallow deer graze and where grey herons and exotic egrets are a familiar sight around the lakes. Powderham Castle lies in a beautiful deer park on the banks of the River Exe, just a stone’s throw from the historic cathedral city of Exeter. The Castle was first opened to visitors in 1959, since then in excess of a million people have been through the doors to share in over 600 years of history.
The Powderham Country Show takes place within the spectacular grounds of Powderham Castle and the family-orientated event promises world-class fieldsports competitions, have-a-go demonstrations, as well as exhilarating acts and displays. To discover more about outdoor pursuits and the Great British countryside, Powderham in 2017 promises a great family day out.
