Westhide is a village and civil parish in Herefordshire, England, 9 km north east of Hereford.[2] The parish had a population of 79 in the 2001 UK Census[1] and is grouped with Preston Wynne and Withington to form Withington Group Parish Council for administrative purposes.[3]

The parish church is dedicated to St Bartholomew and has a large but short 12th-century tower.[4] In the churchyard are the remains of a medieval preaching cross now topped by an 18th-century sundial.[5]

The course of the Herefordshire and Gloucestershire Canal runs just north of the village.[2]
