About Sheena Baird

I bought this property as I would like to live there when I retire from my job in Bristol as a Chartered Engineer and I enjoy being in Exeter and love the great location of this apartment. It also has ease of access for people with young children or the elderly as there is level access from the street (no stairs or steps) and yet the windows and balconies are not at ground floor level so offer a degree of privacy and security and have views over towards Northernhay Gardens and the city.

Sheena Baird purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Sheena Baird chose Exeter

I chose this location as it makes a great holiday or business base as there is something here for all the family, whatever their ages. Teenage children are especially hard to entertain when on a family holiday so a City break could be the answer. The apartment, with its allocated parking space, is within 4 minute's walk of the High Street and the Princesshay shopping Centre and also, from John Lewis' new department store. There is easy access to the University, theatres, and the cultural and tourist attractions of Exeter itself such as the Quays and the Cathedral. For trips further afield, Exeter has good transport links by motorway, train, bus and even the airport is within a few miles. Exeter is the Gateway to the West Country coast, moors and attractions like Crealy adventure park.

What makes this apartment unique

The property is spacious enough for a family group and it also offers versatile accommodation for two couples with the option of an additional single guest bed that can be put up in the lounge for a teenager or additional member of the group or, for a child young enough to share the main bedroom with their parents, there is sufficient space in the main bedroom. The main bedroom has an en-suite shower room with toilet and the main bathroom has both a bath and a shower to avoid long queues in the morning!

For a group of up to three people visiting Exeter on business, this is also a convenient apartment as each person can have their own room and a single bed can be put up in the lounge. I have been asked if younger children can stay so I'm now offering family groups with children of all ages a chance to holiday in surroundings where parents can attend their holiday training course and the grandparents can take the children out and about so everyone can find something that will amuse and delight them. The flat has got parking but there's no car needed as the location is so central and there is now a service directly between Exeter airport and London!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We have used Exeter as our base for summer holidays for the last 30 years and without doubt your apartment is one of the best we have stayed in. It is very convenient for shops, the museum, public transport and eating out. The flat is modern, well appointed and comfortable, also access from street level is very easy but at same time secure. As three adults sharing a holiday we had plenty of room. The two bathrooms were a distinct advantage, the living room comfortable and if we wished to eat in the kitchen had all one would need." Alison

"For three of us on a business trip to Exeter, this was the best location and it had the added bonus of being within walking distance to the pub or restaurants in the evenings if we wanted to go out, or there's the well equipped kitchen and TV if we wanted a night in". Ross

An Excellent Holiday!

  • 4 of 5

We've enjoyed our stay in Exeter, the house is really comfortable. We are 4 members in my family. My daughters have had fun. The house is very clean and there is an excellent wi-fi. The kitchen had the right equipment. The both toilets were well maintained and clean. Well located , it´s five minutes to the city centre and the central station.

Absolutely recommended

  • 5 of 5

First of all it was a pleasure dealing with the owner, Sheena. She couldn't have been more helpful.

The apartment is perfect: in the centre of Exeter but at the same time very quiet; spacious and with a well equipped kitchen; two nice bathrooms; high-speed internet connection; a secured and easily accesible car parking space; and the most confortable beds I have ever encountered in a rented appartment.

I don't think there is any better available.

Owner's Response: It's always a pleasure to receive a good review but what makes me happier still is that you appreciated the apartment and found your two weeks in Exeter so enjoyable. I think its close proximity to both the High Street and the University make it the holiday apartment of choice , especially if you are attending a graduation ceremony in July or , during September, want to spend some time getting to know Exeter before your student son or daughter starts at the University. I look forward to welcoming your family again one day!

Caserta (South Italy)

Comfortable flat in strategic position

  • 4 of 5

I have been in this flat for one week in August with my family of 7 people (my husband and me, my three children aged 6, 4 and 2 and my parents). The apartment was really comfortable and well organised for all of us, with new furniture and a well-equipped kitchen. Its position in Exeter is strategic: very short walking distance to the center full of shops of any kind (High Street, Cathedral and surrounding area), to the Central railway station and to the Bus Station. My children had a lot of fun at the Crealy Adventure Park, situated at a 20 min bus ride (bus 52) from the Bus Station. But all the family also enjoyed going for a walk or shopping in the city center or near the quay (this latter situated at about 15-20 walking distance from the flat).

Sheena, the flat owner, was really nice and attentive in providing me with all the relevant information and details about the flat and related services. She answered promptly to every question.

I can strongly recommend this flat also for families with children.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure having this lovely Italian family with three generations to stay . The flat seemed to be spacious enough for them all! It is in such a central location in Exeter that even without a car they could find many attractions within walking distance, or like Crealy only a short bus ride away. There is an allocated car parking space included with the flat for those with their own transport . The flat has internet Wifi and can suit people visiting Exeter on business trips as well as families from UK and abroad.
