Wye with Hinxhill is a hillside civil parish in the borough of Ashford north east of Ashford, Kent itself, centred 3.7 miles (6.0 km) NNE of the town centre. The North Downs range of hills have the high escarpment on the east and west borders of the village, flanking a gap caused by the River Great Stour in the centre of the parish.

The combined village has a relatively low population and large geographical area. The civil parish council meets monthly to administer local government resources, funding and planning community events and facilities. It contains the main village of Wye and much smaller Hinxhill and has a combined a population of 2,300.
