Powderham Food Festival

Held on the 4th October at Powderham Castle (pictured above, a fantastic venue overlooking the Exe estuary), this year's Powderham Food Festival invites you to bring out your inner caveman for a feast of outdoor cooking over traditional fire.

We’re sponsoring the festival again this year making it 3 years in a row, and we're looking forward to sampling some local Devon meat cooked in fire-pits, charcoal filled wheel barrows and flaming tandoori ovens. And all washed down with fabulous West Country ales and cider.

Over 100 producers will be exhibiting in the castle and grounds, plus there will be fascinating demonstrations, talks and tastings from a host of notable names including:

- Tim Hayward, Guardian writer and broadcaster
- Jane Baxter, ex head chef Riverford Field Kitchen
- Ben Bulger, Devon Chef of the year at Magdalen Chapter Hotel
- Peter Greig, co-owner with wife Henrietta, of Pipers Farm
- James Strawbridge, proprietor “Posh Pasty Company”
- and Patrick Fogarty of Bronx Grill and Bar in Teignmouth

Fabulous West Country food is very much a part of our guests' self-catering holiday experience and we are happy to be involved again.

The festival runs from 10am-5pm on Saturday 4th October. Admission is £6 for adults, free for children under 16.
