The Devon region
There is easy access to a wide range of communications - the M5 motorway is 5 mins drive, the airport, 15 mns, bus and railway stations with a 15 minute walk. London is less than 3 hours by train. Nowhere in Devon and Cornwall is further than a 2 hour drive.
It is also ideally located to explore other beautiful areas in Devon such as the Jurassic Coast, River Exe Estuary, Dartmoor and Exmoor.
Relaxed yet lively, historic and modern, a quiet night in or buzzing nightlife, football and rugby – a city of contrasts with plenty to keep you occupied, but within an hour you can also reach outstanding beaches and National Parks, what's not to like about Exeter?
History and Heritage
Exeter is home to 'Museum of the Year 2012'. The recently re-opened Royal Albert Memorial Museum (RAMM) is a fantastic (and free!) day out with something for everyone. Exeter Cathedral is a stunning piece of architecture, or try the unique 14th century Underground Passageways . A short stroll from the city centre is the historic quay and to really get to grips with Exeter explore the Roman city walls . Exeter has a rich and varied history. You can experience Tudor life at St Nicholas Priory or discover the city's medieval heritage at Tuckers Hall and 'the house that moved'.
Arts and Culture
The creative heart of the city beats the loudest at the Exeter Phoenix which celebrates visual arts as well as hosting gigs and performances. Spacex is small but perfectly formed, with contemporary art exhibited in a fantastic space. For music, comedy and theatre then look no further than the Exeter Barnfield or Northcott Theatres.
These romantic love stories, filmed in Devon and Cornwall, have enjoyed huge popularity since the first production in 1993, with average viewing figures of 6 million. To date over 70 of these television films have been made, shot in our local countryside with well-known German casts, making this format one of the most popular and long-lasting in German television history.
Michael Morpurgo's children's book, adapted for stage and film has many references to Devon, including Dartmoor, Narracott farm, where Albert (Jeremy Irvine) brings up Joey the horse, is Ditsworthy Warren House, an abandoned cottage a couple of miles southeast of Sheepstor, on the southwest edge of Dartmoor in south Devon.
The nearby local village is Meavy, and just to the north lies Burrator Reservoir, the body of water above which Albie races Joey against the new-fangled motor car of the landlord's son.
The rolling hills and rocky outcrops are Dartmoor National Park, mainly the area around Combestone Tor, Haytor and Ringmoor Down. The wild and mysterious moors have a long history in fiction, most famously as the setting for Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes mystery, Hound of the Baskervilles.
Must See Attractions
A short stroll down to Exeter's Historic Quayside will bring you to the brilliant Quay Climbing Centre , and Clip'n'Climb , all indoors and fun for everyone. Fan of rugby? Then catch a game at Sandy Park and cheer on the mighty Exeter Chiefs . Just outside of Exeter is the stunning Haldon Forest which is a great outdoor playground for which ever activity you enjoy. Or you could always take a Red Coat guided tour which will show you all the sights and attractions.
Food and Drink
Exeter has a great choice of places to eat covering all sorts of local (and slightly more exotic!) cuisine. Recommendations include French brasserie Cote on the Cathedral Green, or some twists on traditional pub grub at The Rusty Bike or Fat Pig . Exeter's hotels also offer fantastic dining experiences including the Magdalen Chapter , ABode Exeter and Southernhay House Hotel .
For weird and wonderful goodies head to the cobbled Saxon-sized Gandy Street or climb Fore Street for retro clothing and records. Exeter is home to some delightful boutiques on Castle Street or Magdalen Road . Princess Hay is a modern shopping centre in the centre of Exeter, with international shops and brands available.
Exeter, and the surrounding area, is a haven for bird watching, particularly during the winter months. Staying in the centre of Exeter is a great way to combine a city and country break

"High standard of accommodation close to city with secure parking"
The property was spacious and clean with comfortable beds. The kitchen was equipment was of a high standard and everything functioned correctly.The property is located within easy walking distance of Exeter city centre in a pleasant neighbourhood close to a large park. Good secure parking at rear of building. We appreciated the jam, clotted cream and scones that awaited us.

"Extremely comfortable, quiet and only just off-centre"
Every convenience one could wish for was supplied + scones with cream on arrival! Comfy beds, good layout, pleasant décor. Town centre not very far. Convenient for a visit to Torquay as well. Helpful unobtrusive owner.

"PERFECT in every way!"
From the very outset of requesting a booking at this fabulous apartment, the owner went above and beyond in terms of customer service. He was considerate, helpful and knowledgeable about the area. The apartment, which is spacious, fully equipped, with easy access to town and all the tourist sights, is large and welcoming. I would definitely return to the apartment and to Exeter, a delightful stay albeit too short.
Many thanks to Susan, and all of our other guests for their reviews. Although we are a self-catering property We strive to deliver a 5* hotel experience, with the benefits of home comforts, and great customer service from the first point of contact to the last. Comments like these encourage us to constantly improve our offering.

"Great base to explore Exeter"
Fantastic apartment which has been presented to very high standard by the owner. I staid for four nights with my elderly parents and my young children. The apartment is in located in quiet residential street but is only a 15 minute walk into the centre of town. A large Waitrose is a five minutes drive away if you need to stock up on groceries and there is also a nice local park just down the road which my son enjoyed playing in. The living room is a great place to relax in as it is bright and very spacious (the photo's on tripadvisor don't do it justice). The kitchen is fully equipped and the Devon cream tea provided by the owner on arrival was a nice surprise. The bedrooms are a good size, appear to have been recently redecorated and have plenty of wardrobe space for clothes. Another big bonus is the secure off street parking at the back of the building which came in very useful. The difference between other serviced apartments I have staid in is the attention detail, such as the boards games, good selection of DVDs, books and useful fact sheets about the apartment and the surrounding area. A great apartment which is good value for money if you are staying as a group or family. I really couldn't find any faults.

"Beautiful and spacious apartment in a fantastic location"
After searching for a hotel to stay at in Exeter, I stumbled across this lovely apartment and it turned out to be the perfect choice for us. Aside from being a beautiful Georgian building, the apartment is spacious and luxurious-catering for all your needs. The wi-fi access and smart TV set it apart from other properties I have stayed in, and the scones, jam, cream and milk that were left by Philip, the owner, were a really thoughtful touch. For us, the location couldn't have been better. The city centre is only a 10 minute walk away, and there is waitrose within walking distance. We would definitely choose to stay here again!

"Everything we hoped for. Excellent!"
This apartment is a delight, from the moment you arrive. There was easy parking on the street to unload, and secure parking during our stay. Philip’s welcome was friendly and efficient. The apartment is light, spacious, well-equipped, comfortable and easy to use. Beds are excellent, and towels and linen are of high quality. Good bathrooms. Good smart TV and internet. Hot water and heating worked perfectly. The road outside is quiet, and we were not aware of neighbours. To use that rather old cliché it really does feel like a home away from home. We enjoyed every moment of staying there.

"outstanding apartment in a perfect location"
We really enjoyed this wonderful apartment. We rented it for some friends visiting us and we couldn't find a better place. The location is perfect, the building impressive and the apartment is outstanding: very bright, spacious and beautifull fitted with everything. All is done to an extremely high standard and Philip, the owner, has a special eye for the details. Highly recommended!

"Comfortable,spacious,well equipped and good location."
We stayed here with our 16 month old and the apartment more than met all our needs for our short stay. It was only a short walk to the city centre and an ideal base to see other nearby areas. Lots of useful extras were included, such as tea, coffee, cleaning materials essential for a short stay. Also On arrival we were welcomed with some delicious scones, jam, cram and milk! We will return, thank you.
