Crockham Hill is a village in the Sevenoaks district of Kent, England. It is about 3 miles (5 km) south of Westerham, and Chartwell is nearby.

The village street is on the line of a Roman road, the London to Lewes Way.[1]

It contains a 19th-century pub and church as well as being home to many famous figures such as the Churchill and Gladstone families as well as Lord Harris (owner of Carpet Right) and former home of Financial Services agent Sean Robertson.[citation needed]

Octavia Hill, a social reformer, philanthropist, artist, writer and co-founder of the National Trust, also lived in the village. Her remains are buried in the church yard of the village church, Holy Trinity.[2]
