“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, in the same ownership as Number Nine Exe. With a stand out bar, seasonal menus and private dining/meeting room, it’s a sophisticated cocktail of business mixed with pleasure.
