Brent Pelham is a village in Hertfordshire, England, located around 5 miles (8 km) east of Buntingford. It is one of the three Pelhams, along with Stocking Pelham and Furneux Pelham, and forms part of the civil parish of Brent Pelham and Meesden.

Near St Mary's church are ancient stocks which could accommodate up to three people at once. A derelict windmill survives in the village.

There is a Royal Observer Corp observer post just outside of the village, but it is now in a state of disrepair. It has an Orlit, which is rare for posts in this area.
