“I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.”

Douglas Adams

Built in 1795 by local entrepreneur and master builder, Mathew Nosworthy, the Southernhay quadrangle is a key symbol of Exeter’s professional past. And present.

Southernhay’s Georgian townhouses surround two green gardens, planted with magnolias. Perfect for clearing your head, a private call, or a picnic lunch.

The Bar at Southernhay House Hotel

Just opposite Number Nine is the social centre of Southernhay! Southernhay House is Exeter’s only independent boutique hotel. With a stand out bar, classic seasonal bar menu and al fresco eating and drinking spaces, it’s perfect for break out meetings or after work de-briefing. Businesses working in Number Nine Exe receive preferential accommodation rates and a waiver of room hire charges for the party and meeting rooms.
