About Apartment 7

Apartment 7 is a welcoming self-catering holiday home in the heart of historic Exeter. The large apartment is on the top floor of a beautiful converted Georgian building dating from 1714, boasting a private penthouse balcony with views over the rooftops to the city's magnificent cathedral. The location is superb. So good, in fact, that celebrated author, Charles Dickens, chose to stay in this building when he was in Exeter. Apartment 7 sleeps four people in two rooms (one king and one large double) and works as well for people who need to stay in Exeter for business as it does for couples or families on holiday.

Exeter is arguably the best city in the southwest of England. It's small enough to explore with ease yet big enough to be interesting, with centuries of history, a highly-regarded university, and superb amenities. When you stay at Apartment 7, you're only steps from relaxed cafes and pubs, stylish bars and restaurants, and a wide variety of places to shop, including independent businesses and familiar high street names. The town's council devised a choice of walking trails highlighting the history of Exeter, including a route around the 2,000-year-old city walls, to connect modern visitors with the people who built and lived in the city you see today. Exeter Cathedral and Cathedral Green are only five minutes from the apartment and other attractions within walking distance include Exeter Quay, the Royal Albert Memorial Museum, Exeter Castle, and the Underground Passages.

Exeter is between Dartmoor National Park, the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and the coast. You have a wide choice of things to see and do, no matter what time of the year you're here. Hire a bicycle for a day to explore the Exe Estuary, or lace up your comfiest shoes and set stride along the South West Coast Path. Climb towering granite tors or kayak along the River Exe. Day trips can include sunning yourself on the beach at Exmouth or Dawlish Warren, fossil hunting on the Jurassic Coast, visiting the residents at the Donkey Sanctuary and having lunch or afternoon tea in their fantastic cafe, or taking a boat trip to Lundy Island. Crealy Theme Park, the Miniature Pony Centre, Dartmoor Zoo, Go Ape, Castle Drogo, and Whistman's Wood are just a handful of many more places to go.

Why settle for a bland, impersonal hotel when you can stay in this lovely apartment with its fantastic natural light, space and privacy? Apartment 7 will quickly feel like your second home.
