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