The Experience

Wander down to the quayside on a fine day… for the summer buzz of cafes, bars, restaurants and shops. Just south of historic, tree-lined Southernhay, the waterfront is a five-minute stroll.

Dean Clarke House, a hospital for 200 years, has recently been renovated to reveal its Georgian grandeur. This first-floor apartment, reached by lift or stair, is as lofty and luxurious as can be, with dimmer lights, rain showers and warm toasty floors. Families will appreciate the day bed, the generous welcome pack and the toys; business guests, the desk and the on-site gym.

Stroll round the corner to the cavernous Cosy Club, for cool cocktails and lively lunch. Walk to The Hourglass for great pub grub. Or head for Budleigh Salterton, a half hour drive, for pebbles, cream teas and the smell of the sea.

Excellent spot whether you need to be in Exeter for business or pleasure - I'd highly recommend and it's next to one of the best bars in town. Love the fact you can see the city walls from the kitchen window.

The neighbourhood

Southernhay is a wide elegant street close to the old city walls, with a small leafy park on the opposite side. The waterfront, the university, the cathedral and Cathedral Green are a stroll, as are numerous small shops and places to eat. Book up concerts at the cathedral, and films and live music at the Exeter Phoenix. If you love local produce, there’s an excellent farm shop at Darts Farm, Topsham, four miles.

Local points of interest from Tina Benson

  • We are a short stroll from the City Centre oozing with great walks, restaurants, shops, cinemas and the Cathedral. You can dump the car and explore on foot. It’s a quick train ride to Topsham, Lympstone, Dawlish and Exmouth. Another short walk to the Quay
  • Families enjoy the Royal Albert Memorial Museum, one of Britain’s finest regional museums with stunning displays and galleries. Take a tour of the Gothic Cathedral and roof top tours or the Red Coat Guided Tour
  • For a kids day out there’s Crealy Theme Park with rides, animals and water slides. You might get wet!
  • Princesshay is minutes away and full of your favourite shops including Reiss, Oliver Bonas, Apple, Superdry, Hollister and loads more. Try Gandy Street for a great boho experience of cool bars and shops for the Uni students.
