Welcome to Broadwoodwidger

A large rural Parish in the beautiful rolling countryside of West Devon, with glorious views of Dartmoor and nearby Cornwall. Distinctive for its many hidden hamlets and farms that nestle tucked away throughout the parish. Alongside its many rivers, hills and valleys, one of which the River Wolf meanders gently, having been dammed in recent times to provide 750 acres of water stored for the large conurbations of Devon. Many outdoor activities surround the reservoir including wind surfing, boating and fishing whilst providing peaceful rural walks for the whole family to enjoy.

The A30 dual carriageway skirts one end of the parish, giving excellent road links to the South West region as a whole (albeit with a little noise)! The neighbouring parishes of Ashwater, St Giles on the Heath, and Lifton offer a range of services and points of interest for residents and visitors alike. Although the last 30 years has made a telling difference to this parish with the reservoir and the road, it has brought a vibrancy and new way of life for residents new and old in these challenging times. But above all it makes this parish a welcoming, friendly and memory-making destination.
