I'd be very surprised - it's a tiny place.

I was on a walking holiday on Dartmoor last September, ending one day at Widecombe. A friend who didn't walk that day met us there - I believe she got the taxi from Bovey Tracey.

Yell.com shows 3 taxi companies based in Bovey Tracey.

Apart from a few tea rooms and shops - church and an odd pub or two - there's hardly anything in Widecombe, sorry, forgot to mention the ever present Dartmoor ponies!

Seriously, Widecombe is a small Dartmoor village, so I too doubt there would be a taxi service.

Might we ask why you ask? Are you intending staying in Devon and just want to visit. There will be a local bus service, I know someone has posted Bovey as the nearest taxi service, but in my opinion it would be quite costly to go to Widecome and if you want to go just to see the place - save your money! It's a pretty little place to drive through on a Dartmoor trip, but 15 minutes and you've seen it! I might get shot down in flames for saying this, but apart from one shop, the rest are tacky.

There are some lovely walks around Widecombe and a great pub (The Rugglestone). The buses are pretty infrequent but I'm sure you an get there and back by local transport. There are also some rather nice B+Bs if you fancy an overnight stay.

As for taxi services, as has already been said - very doubtful indeed!
