Powis Castle and Garden

Powis Castle near Welshpool would be a stunning place to visit at any time of year but on yet another rainy afternoon in early June, it was a treat for the senses in all ways.

Out of stunning landscaped gardens with breathtaking views, bright green and fertile, rose this magnificent structure built originally around 1200 but with an impressive interior updated and enhanced over the centuries. We were particularly inspired by many of the improvements to the castle made by Bodley in the early 20th Century – especially the Victorian wallpaper, upholstery and soft furnishings used in many of the public rooms.
