Hope under Dinmore is a village and parish in Herefordshire, England. The village is located on the A49 road, 4 miles (6 km) south of Leominster and 9 miles (14 km) north of Hereford and on the Welsh Marches railway line. The railway passes under Dinmore Hill through the split-level 1,051-yard (961 m) long Dinmore Tunnel. The parish had a population in mid-2010 of 343.
Most of the population of the village is centred in the housing estate called Cherry Brook Close, but the village extends up two roads. One road leads to Westhope Common.
Dinmore Manor, in a valley south west of the hill, was founded as a preceptory of the Knights of St John of Jerusalem. It is the private residence of mobile phone tycoon Martin Dawes and no longer open to the general public.
