Where is Exeter?

Exeter is in Southwest England, it’s the second largest city in Devon (where we also have homes for sale), and it’s 36 miles from Plymouth and 65 miles southwest of Bristol. The city is perched at the top of the Exe estuary, where the River Exe leads to the English Channel. It’s a short drive from Dartmoor and Exmoor National Park and their famous rocky outcrops known as Tors.

And that’s not all! Exeter is close to a UNESCO World Heritage Site, otherwise known as the Jurassic Coast. This picture-perfect coastline dates back 185 million years, and it’s safe to say, it’s incredibly easy on the eye.

Is Exeter a good place to live?

Recently, YouGov reported that Exeter was the 16th most popular city in the UK. Not to mention, the city came second (out of 20) for having the strongest sense of community in a study by Parkdean Resorts.

Exeter combines the best in urban amenities with magnificent rural green spaces, making it the picture-perfect place for those looking to find their dream home.

If that’s got you itching to move to this picturesque city, we’ve thought ahead and created a moving house checklist, so you can tackle the big move stress-free when it comes to it.

Things to do in Exeter

What isn’t there to do in Exeter? From indulging in the culinary delights of the Exeter Festival of Food and Drink to tracing back the cities roots in its historical landmarks – you’ll never be bored living here.

  • History

    You’ll fall in love with Exeter Cathedral more and more every day, especially as it’s one of the Southwest's most iconic landmarks. A ten-minute walk from this gothic masterpiece is the Historic Quayside where you’ll find an intriguing mix of historic and contemporary architecture. You can even hire a kayak or paddle board to use on the canal if you’re feeling adventurous!

  • Retail

    When you’re in need of a spot of retail therapy, you won’t fall short in the city. Exeter itself is a hotspot for high street shopping. But if you're after independent stores, Gandy Street is the place to be. There’s also a mixture of antique shops in and around the quayside too if you fancy a change of scenery.

  • Restaurants

    For the foodies amongst us, you can tuck into fresh seafood at the unique, floating River Exe Café. Or get your tastebuds tingling at Harry’s Restaurant where you can enjoy a selection of seasonal produce from local farms.

  • Outdoors

    Take in the breath-taking views of the Exe Estuary, just south of Exeter, on a cycling break with family and friends. You can explore the windswept landscape to your heart’s content, and you’ll even get to meet the abundance of wildlife this picture-perfect spot is home to.

    Nearby, you’ll find Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty – East Devon AONB and Blackdown Hills AONB. Both are rural paradises, deeply rooted in history with beautiful countryside surroundings and farmland.

  • Unique spots

    For those who enjoy exploring and discovering new spots, Gandy Street is one of the most quaint and charming streets in the city. We even heard it was the inspiration for Harry Potter’s Diagon Alley!

    Our shared ownership homes in the city are ready for you to enjoy all that Exeter has to offer. With our guidance on buying a new home, you’ll be hearing the jingling of the new keys to your pad in no time – music to your ears!
