Live the Exeter life

Enjoying an excellent location close to the south coast, Exeter could be the perfect place to live if you want to combine the benefits of city life with a naturally beautiful setting. You can also reap the financial rewards of moving with us, thanks to incentives such as Help to Buy, whereby you could place as little as 5% deposit.

Things to see and do in Exeter

Around 10 miles inland from the coast, there are lots of beaches and coastal walks within a short drive of the city centre. If you’re looking for things to do in the heart of town then Exeter Cathedral and the Royal Albert Memorial Museum and Art Gallery are must-sees. 

Dive below street level to take a tour of the city’s 14th-century tunnels, go for a much brighter stroll around Northernhay Gardens on the northern side of Rougemont Castle, and squeeze your way down the narrow Parliament Street for some great photo opportunities. If you have little ones, then treat them to an action-packed day at Crealy Theme Park just outside the city centre.

Education

When it’s time for your kids to learn rather than play, there are a host of excellent local schools for them to attend. These include primaries Ellen Tinkham School in Pinhoe, Exwick Heights Primary School and Stoke Hill Infants and Nursery School, which have all been rated as outstanding by Ofsted. 

If you live in Pinhoe then children can progress to Ellen Tinkham’s secondary school, while Ottery St Mary’s King’s School, the central Maynard School and Exeter School are other great options, the latter two of which are independents.

Exeter transport links

Exeter has strong road, rail and air links, making it easily accessible from other parts of the UK, as well as destinations abroad. It’s served by the M5 motorway, which begins just to the south of the city and makes its way north towards Bristol and beyond. The main train station is Exeter Central, while the airport’s around five miles east of the city centre.

The Exeter property scene

Exeter has a booming property market, and has become popular among Londoners looking to leave the capital for a more relaxed, spacious way of life. Little compromise is made with respect to things like dining out though, meaning houses on the outskirts of the city such as the 2, 3 and 4 beds off Tithebarn Lane are very much in demand. 

Contemporary homes along Chudleigh Road in Alphington are also popular, while Tiverton’s Post Hill is a great option if you’re looking for a stylish - or even colourful - 2, 3 or 4 bed semi with a golf club and country park on your doorstep. Wherever you decide to settle down, don’t miss offers such as our Movemaker scheme, which could save you thousands of pounds when you move into one of our expertly designed new homes. 

Help to Buy Exeter

In Exeter you can take advantage of Help to Buy South West if you are a first time buyer. Take a look at the Help to Buy South West page to find out how the scheme works and how it can help you move.
