Heather Moffett is an international classical dressage trainer and author, with Iberian horses training to high levels, and guests are welcome to watch us train and ride.
East Leigh Farm is set within 31 acres of grounds. Walk down to our stretch of the River Harbourne, our valley has over 70 different varieties of wildflowers and in spring, the masses of snowdrops, primroses and Devon violets are a sight to behold. Heather is also a watercolour artist, having had solo exhibitions in the past and hopes perhaps to have time to pick up a brush again, maybe running a few painting courses here.
We run a number of different Enlightened Equitation courses throughout the year, details of which can be found on www.enlightenedequitation.com
Retreats are also planned, including Mindfulness, Yoga and Kansa massage, to make the most of this peaceful spot. We have a yoga school only half a mile from the farm and a Pilates studio immediately behind our indoor riding school!
Being in the South Hams, we are only half an hour from Blue flag beaches and the stunning South Devon coastline, and only four miles from the nearest entrance to Dartmoor. There is plenty of scope for walkers, with tracks as well as lanes, affording spectacular views.
East Leigh is a tiny hamlet with only 15 houses but being only 4 miles from Totnes, is not isolated. The farm is the last property before open countryside and so benefits from the best views! Excellent pub, The Church House Inn, Harberton, a beautiful Devon Longhouse, is only 1 mile, and there is a choice of many restaurants in Totnes 4 miles away.
We have plenty of parking but no public transport, so a car is essential. Dartmouth is only 8 miles and Torbay 12 miles. The nearest entrance to Dartmoor is 4 miles away at Marley Head junction on the A38.
We would hope that guests would be friendly, and respectful of the fact that this is also a private home. Regretfully, it is not suited to children under the age of 12 and, at present, it is not possible to bring dogs. The house is strictly non-smoking indoors but smoking permitted outside.
