This was to have been the site of the junction for a line running over ten miles to Clovelly.
Kenwith Castle Halt had platform or shelter and was sited at an ungated level crossing on the road to the castle; the gates had been removed in 1905. The line ran through a cutting at this point. No sidings or freight facilities were provided.
In January 1901, the first train, with one carriage, ran from Bideford to Northam carrying a few friends of the Directors.
