New homes in Exeter

Exeter can trace its roots back to before Roman times and it’s played an important role throughout English history.

The city provided many of the ships that defeated the Spanish Armada and was a key Royalist stronghold during the English Civil War.

With a rich history, plus a great location at the heart of Devon, Exeter offers a quality of life to rival anywhere in the country.

Transport Links in Exeter

Exeter lies at the southern end of the M5 and enjoys direct links to Bristol and Birmingham. The M5 also links with the M4, putting London a little under three and a half hours drive away.

The city boasts two railway stations, Exeter St Davids and Exeter Central.

St Davids is the city’s main station and enjoys good mainline connections to the rest of the UK. The fastest train can whisk you to London Paddington in little over 2 hours.

Central also connects with London via Waterloo, but is the principal station for local services to nearby towns and villages.

The city has its own airport and its own airline. Flights depart from here to the key hubs of Amsterdam and Paris, as well as direct to many popular holiday destinations. The airport is also the base for the low cost airline flybe – Europe’s largest regional airline.

Shopping in Exeter

The Princesshay Shopping Centre was the first pedestrianised shopping precinct in the country. In 2007 it was transformed into a modern shopping centre with over 65 stores. The towns High Street and the nearby Guildhall Shopping Centre complete the major retail areas. Those looking for more independent, and unique, shops should head for the Harlequin centre and Quayside, with its historic warehouses.  

Learning and Working

The city has been identified as one of the 10 most profitable places to do business in the UK. The Met Office relocated here in 2004, and Exeter University was named Sunday Times University of the Year in 2013.

The city’s Science Park is home to many new technology businesses, and as the country town of Devon, is the base for local government agencies including the Devon & Cornwall Constabulary.

There are also a number of well performing secondary schools in the area, including St Peter’s Church of England Aided School, Southbrook School and St James School. Whereas Clyst Vale Community College and West Exe Technology College provide excellent higher education facilities.

For those with younger children some of the top schools in the area include Broadclyst Primary Academy Trust, Exwick Heights Primary School, Ide Primary School and Newton St Cyres Primary School.

Family Fun

The city enjoys an enviable position at the centre of one of the UK’s most popular tourist regions. Elegant seaside towns, surfing beaches, unique wildlife, spectacular moorland scenery and family attractions mean there’s always something to do.

Some great things to consider include the Saddles and Paddles bike, canoe and kayak hire centre, the Haven Banks Outdoor Education Centre, the Woollen Trail, The Bill Douglas Centre and the underground passages.

A Great Place to Live

It’s no surprise to discover Exeter regularly features in lists of the best places to live in the UK. This and a wide selection of new and historic properties make the city a great place to buy a home.
