Kennford is a village situated in the Teignbridge district of Devon, England. Kennford is 4 miles (6 km) to the south of Exeter in the civil parish of Kenn; it is situated in one of the country's main tourist areas.
The village became prominent in the 1970s as the location of a new service station on the A38 Devon Expressway between Exeter and Plymouth, near the southern terminus of the then new M5 motorway. This service area is a popular stopping place for tourists on their way to South Devon and Cornwall.
The entertainer, Danny la Rue, was largely brought up in Kennford (from the age of 6).
