Badgworthy Water is a small river which flows through Malmsmead on Exmoor, close to the border between Devon and Somerset, England.

It merges with Oare Water to become the East Lyn River.[1][2][3]

On the banks of the river are the remains of a few dwellings which formed a medieval village. The last resident left in the 1930s.[1]

The 17th century packhorse Malmsmead Bridge crosses Badgworthy Water.[4]

The valley is associated with the book Lorna Doone.[1][5]
