Overview

A small city that packs a big punch, Exeter is one of the most vibrant, attractive and historically interesting cities in England.

Pre-dating the arrival of the Romans in AD 50, Exeter’s history is rich and long. This is reflected in its fascinating visitor attractions including its unique Underground Passages, free Red Coat Guided Tours, magnificent Cathedral, imposing Roman wall and beautiful Quayside. Exeter is also home to the award-winning Royal Albert Memorial Museum where visitors can explore the city’s 2,000-year history under one roof!

Exeter has a real sense of individuality, its varied cultural scene is embraced by proud locals, and the diverse mix of eateries means it is renowned as one of the foodie capitals of the South West. Head to the West Quarter or the cobbled Gandy Street to discover great mix of independent shops and boutiques, cafes and bars.

In Exeter we love the outdoors. The city’s location in the heart of Devon, surrounded by miles of countryside and close to the World Heritage Jurassic Coast, means there are plenty of opportunities for adventure. This is the perfect place to try a new activity, or simply relax and enjoy the stunning scenery.

Sandridge Barton Wines

Sandridge Barton is the home of Sharpham Wine and sits in a south-facing bowl on the edge of the River Dart, the perfect terroir for growing grapes and producing renowned English wines. You can visit their on-site farm shop, book onto a guided or self-guided wine and cheese tasting or tour or dine at their onsite restaurant. Sandridge Barton Wines may appear to be a new face on the rapidly expanding UK wine scene, but the Devon based vineyard and winery has four decades of history and winemaking knowledge and experience. The name Sandridge Barton marks a new era for the celebrated Dart Valley winery, Sharpham Wine, which has literally moved lock, stock, and barrel (in fact, quite a few barrels) across the river Dart to the new state of the art winery, visitor centre café, nestled in a small valley adjacent to the 32acre Sandridge Barton vineyard which has been producing grapes for Sharpham Wine for over a decade.
