Whitford is a village near Axminster in East Devon.

It is situated on the western bank of the River Axe, which is crossed via a small bridge with a weir under it on a lane that joins the A358 road at Musbury. The West of England Main Line runs through a cutting close to the village, which is four miles north of the Jurassic Coast at Seaton.

The village has a church, a village hall, and some attractive thatched cottages and is within the East Devon AONB.
