From the owner

ExeterSelfCatering is a highly rated, ground floor apartment comprising a very large, open plan living/dining and fully equipped kitchen area with two double bedrooms, two bathrooms, a private car park and fast internet. It is over 95 square metres in total.

We are proud that guests have rated us as the best apartment in Exeter, regularly attracting 5★ reviews. We are also a repeat TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner. The apartment is independently owned and managed by the owners - who you will have direct access to. We also include a discount for stays of 7 days or more.

Irrespective of our published booking policy on this website if any Government restrictions prevent your stay we will immediately give you the choice of a full refund or the option to change your dates.

The apartment, which is furnished to a very high standard, forms part of a historic Georgian building, where the period features are complemented by modern comforts, including full double glazing and gas central heating throughout.

Situated in a very quiet area of central Exeter, a short walk from the city centre, the apartment is located on Clifton Hill, a leafy Georgian terrace next to Belmont Park. From the outside you enter into a smart communal entrance hall with stairs to three other apartments. An inner door opens into the entrance hall of our private, fully self-contained apartment.

The very large 8m x 4m living/dining room allows enjoyment of the high ceilings, together with three fully double-glazed, south facing sets of doors and Juliet balconies, making the space bright, light and airy and overlooking the shared gardens.

The living area is furnished with two three seater sofas, coffee tables and equipped with a 55” Samsung Smart TV, sound system, Blu-Ray player and Bluetooth connection for your personal devices.

The dining area is equipped with a table and seating for six, enabling you to entertain, using the extremely well equipped kitchen.

The contemporary kitchen, with granite worktops, is equipped primarily with Bosch appliances – an induction hob, multi-function oven, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble drier. There are a range of small appliances such as a toaster, together with various ways of making tea and coffee, and even a Nutribullet. There is an extensive selection of cookware, utensils, china and glassware.

A good night’s sleep should be guaranteed as both double bedrooms are at the rear of the building and come with luxurious hotel quality beds, plenty of pillows, cushions, luxury Egyptian linen and towels. The singles in the second bedroom can be made up as a superking on request. Anti-allergy duvets and pillows are also available on request.

The main bedroom also has a double wardrobe, chest of drawers and a TV. The windows are fitted with the original period shutters. There is a fully tiled en-suite with rainshower, toilet, basin and heated towel rail.

The second bedroom also has a double wardrobe/drawer in which there is a hotel safe.

The adjacent family bathroom has a full size bath with a shower over and a glass shower screen, toilet and basin.

Guests have use of the shared garden and next door is Belmont Park, with a children’s play area.

A car is not needed for your stay - there is a Waitrose supermarket close by, the city centre and Quayside are a short walk - all in all perfected located to explore Exeter. If you bring a car there is a private space in our onsite, secure car park.

We regularly welcome business and leisure travellers from around the world and hope you will enjoy Exeter as much as we do!

As Coronavirus (COVID-19) is still with us, we wanted to reassure you that we continue to closely monitor and follow the advice of the Government, industry and advisory bodies.

In line with the latest information, as we are now in a national lockdown, we are currently closed unless you require accommodation for work related purposes or relocation. Please check if you are in any doubt.

If you are interested in a stay that adheres to the national lockdown exemptions please send us a message with your request and we will respond to you directly, but please note that this must be for periods of one week or more.

As a small, independent accommodation provider, we are committed to ensuring that we can provide our guests with our usual high standards of accommodation and service. It is also important that we respect our local community.

We’re very pleased to say that we have qualified for both the Visit England ‘We’re Good To Go’ industry standard and by AA/Rated Trips Covid Confident scheme. These mean we can demonstrate that we are adhering to Government and public health guidance, have carried out a COVID-19 risk assessment and have the required processes to keep you safe in place.
