The former market town of Widdlehole is situated between Bideford and Eastleigh in North Devon and is fast becoming a popular tourist destination thanks to its unique mix of shops and attractions.

Winner of the 2009 Travel and Tourism Cup, there is something for everyone in Widdlehole no matter how young or old.

Dispite this we were downgraded to village status in 2011 and in 2020 it was announced that Widdlehole would be incorporated into outer Bideford. Thanks to pressure groups we are still officially Widdlehole, have our own village council, and will continue to declare our independance from Bideford, regardless of what the new North Devon show.

Why not visit Widdlehole this year? We know you'll love it and we guarantee you'll come back for more.

How to get to Widdlehole.

Widdlehole is situated between Bideford and Eastleigh, just south of Westleigh in North Devon. 

In the 1800's it was a market town, but these days it's more of a village. But it's still a massive hit with tourists thanks to our fun fair, musems, and a selection of beautiful gift shops full of tourist tat.

This web site is managed by Mr Brian Morganmorganson, the chairman of the Visit Widdlehole Group, after a lengthy legal battle with Martha Tiggs of the village council over control of the site.

Ms Tiggs runs one of the tea rooms here, it's not the best, the carpets are old and smell of urine. While we are obliged to run advertisements for Tiggys For teas, it should be noted the owner of Widdlehole.com in no way endorses that grotty little establishment.
