Looking forward to hosting you very soon at:
Crediton, Devon EX17 6BL
If using googlemaps there isn’t usually a problem getting here: just enter Viveka Gardens. Satnavs also seem to be fine using EX17 6BL. If you don’t use either, please prepare your journey very well or it is likely you will get lost!
Once you get to EX17 6BL, West-Leigh Farm, go on (or back) to West Leigh Cross, in fact a T-junction. Go down the leg of the T signposted East Leigh 200m and VG is a drive opening on the right. If you come via East Leigh in the first place, go on just under a mile from East Leigh and after two sharp S bends, going past ‘Brookside’, a small house on your right, you will find VG 50m further on the left.
If at all possible, try not to ask the neighbours for directions – thank you for your understanding. Bigger signs coming soon!
West Leigh is equidistant 20 minutes away between the towns of Crediton and Okehampton to the east and west, and between the villages of North Tawton and Coldridge to the south and north. The Dartmoor National Park is 15 minutes away.
By public transport from further afield: trains to Exeter and then either on to Crediton (10 minutes, hourly) or Morchard Road (25 minutes, hourly on the dinky Tarka Line) where you can get a taxi. Buses 5 and 5b go to Crediton and 5b on to a stop 10 – 15 minute walk from here. For retreats we aim to arrange car shares and shared taxi rides.
By car: once you get to EX17 6BL on your satnav you will likely be at West Leigh Cross, in fact a T junction. Go down the leg of the T 400m and you will see a wide opening to a drive on the right and the sign Viveka Gardens on the gate. Go up the drive and park in the designated area on the left, ideally keeping the turning circle at the top free.
