Powderham Castle




We spent Easter Sunday here.

This is Powderham Castle, home of the Earl of Devon. We toured the house which was great fun. The last time I came here I was on honeymoon so it had been a few years!


The girls enjoyed decorating eggs and rolling eggs. We did two treasure hunts and toured the secret garden. The picture of the kitchen is especially for Michelle. It's a genuine victorian kitchen with a lead sink so when a plate was dropped whilst being washed hopefully the china wouldn't break.

Thank you for the picture of the Victorian kitchen. I do love kitchens like that. My children sigh at me. :)

It looks like a wonderful place.

Looks gorgeous, Nell. The sort of place I'd enjoy looking round, too.
