The Devon region

One of the most diverse part of the country, with sandy beaches but 15 minutes away by car; peaceful, rolling countryside from 10 minutes away; an easy walk into the heart of the vibrant Exeter city centre; and Dartmoor and Exmoor National Parks a short drive away.

Exeter is in the heart of Devon with the adventure park, Crealy Adventure park, paint balling, quad biking, go ape, woodland watermark and go-karting all close to hand. All these activities - to name but a few - are ideal to keep the kids and the kids in you happy.

For those who want to do something special and extra-memorable, mackerel fishing from the coastal resort of Beer in the season is a must. And what about going fossil-hunting on a local Jurassic-era beach?

St. Leonard's

Being close the city centre of Exeter, Acer House is in easy walking distance of a wide variety of shops, supermarkets e.g. 'Waitrose' (which also home delivers), and a myriad of exciting restaurants, including the renowned, 2-Michelin-star, multi-award-winning, world-class restaurant at Gidleigh Park, near Chagford.

The newly-refurbished Royal Albert Museum in the city centre is also worth visiting.

The beautiful mediaeval Exeter Cathedral and the surrounding Roman ruins are also memorable tourist delights.

The underground tunnels that joined the various part of the city are equally ready to be explored.

The popular red-coat tours of Exeter - including chilling ghostly tales - also run throughout each day.

Close to Acer House, sporting facilities include a tennis club, swimming pools and gyms.
