Not just a place to sleep – we are duvets, dishes & more! For work or pleasure, we are the one and only Townhouse Exeter.

See our website for the best deals – Rates include our tasty breakfast and a permit for on-street parking.

We are committed to ensuring COVID-19 guidelines are followed and are recipients of VisitEnglands ‘Good to Go’ certification. We are also 2020 Tripadvisor Traveller’s Choice Winners! Reviewers rate us highly on our friendly service, great food, location, cleanliness and attention to detail.

Townhouse Exeter is centrally located, a 10-minute walk to the High Street, the University’s Streatham campus, and both Exeter St David's & Central train stations.

A contemporary guesthouse with nine bedrooms to choose from, all en-suite with showers (except for one which has a separate, but private bathroom / bathtub). Our property is a Grade II listed, 150-year-old, High Gothic Victorian with rooms housed over 3 floors and a mix of period features and contemporary furniture.

We’ve pushed our comfort levels to the max with Hypnos beds, ‘Finer than Down’ duvets & pillows, fluffy bath sheets, and complimentary Cole & Lewis toiletries. There’s even free high-speed Wi-Fi for when you absolutely have to work or stream your favourite movie, and USB charging points to keep you going!


Breakfast in your pyjamas is now our thing!

Our Breakfast Trio Hamper is delivered fresh to your door every morning for a tasty breakfast in your room. Think buttery croissants, homemade breakfast pots of Bircher muesli or Greek yoghurt with fresh fruit and nuts, and some of Chef Ken’s home-baked treats to put a smile on your face. We have vegetarian and vegan offerings too!

And NEW for 2020, you can soon enjoy wine and beer in our early evening resident’s bar – socially distanced of course.


Wanting to see Exeter?

A great city break is just moments away from our doorstep. Exeter is full of history, shopping, attractions, delightful food and drinks, water sports, walks and cycling trails. Might we suggest the temptations of the High Street, the views on Cathedral Green, canoeing or bicycling at the Quay and afternoon strolls along the estuary at nearby Topsham!


Wanting to see more of Devon or the South West? 

Day trips to the countryside, seaside, and many South West beaches are only a short journey by train, bus, bicycle or car. Whether it’s incredible walks in Dartmoor or the North Devon coastline, day trips to the sea at Torbay or Dartmouth, or beaches at Exmouth and along the Jurassic Coast, we’ve got you covered. And don’t worry, the Eden Project and Cornwall are 1-1/2 hours away.
