Work with us

Hello there,

Thanks for your interest in working with us!
My name is Stephanie Darkes and I created this blog in 2016 with a view to share our family explorations in Exeter and Devon, since then it has become so much more. It has given me the opportunity to meet and experience lots of the brilliant businesses we have locally, learn about Exeter’s history and meet some fascinating people. It has led to other opportunities too, such as; becoming a columnist for Exeter Life Magazine, speaking at events and writing for other local publications and blogs, not to mention the opportunity to work with some great brands including Lexus, Boston Tea Party, Powderham Castle and RAMM.

We offer a variety of advertising options from sidebar static advertising to banners, previews and reviews (honest opinion), full sponsored posts or media rich, multi platform campaigns that can help your brand reach thousands every month.

With our personal approach and active local following, Exploring Exeter provides a way for you to reach over 3k unique readers based in and around Exeter and Devon every month and over 10k social followers.
