Harford is a hamlet and civil parish located approximately 2 miles (3.2 km) north of the town of Ivybridge in the county of Devon, England. The parish lies in the local government district of the South Hams, which is a localised, second-tier governmental division of the non-metropolitan county of Devon, administered by Devon County Council.

With a parish population of just 77 people, it is the smallest civil parish in the South Hams by number of people.[1] Part of the village (now town) of Ivybridge — the district's largest civil parish with 12,056 people — used to lye in the parish boundaries of Harford, until the parish of St John's was formed in 1836 (later renamed the parish of Ivybridge in 1894).[2]
