Exeter is Devon’s capital and is becoming a vibrant modern city with an historical past pre dating the Romans.
This is reflected in the visitor’s attractions including the Underground Passages, the fascinating Exeter Cathredral, the newly refurbished RAAM Museum, the Historical City Wall and the lovely gardens which surround it.
Exeter Quay has it’s own historical background and moving South you will find it’s original swing bridge and the old original working canal gates which leads to the River Exe passing through the Medieval Town of Topsham, then leading on to the Jurastic Coast of Exmouth, which has plenty of seaside views and a Jurassic coastal paths leading up to Orcombe point where the views are outstanding.

The Southwest area has also become a safe environment for visitors with a newly refurbished City Centre

We love what we do and care about every student staying with our host families.
We used EHUK homestay accommodation for my daughter during her studies at Exeter College. We found EHUK found the most suitable family for her and felt she was happy & safe during her studies. We also had no worries being a parent as or daughter was treated as part of the family by the host parent. EHUK also stayed in regular contact to ensure everyone was happy.
EHUK took care of our mini stay group from France, arranging our lessons, activities and homestay, we all had a fabulous time and enjoyed every moment.
EHUK has been our point of contact for several years for our junior summer school, all the children have a great time with lots of fun and are treated as part of the family with their host family.
I have travelled on mini stays for several years and EHUK was organised, efficient with great host families for our juniors travelling.
