Dunholme is a village and civil parish in the West Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated on the A46 road, and 5 miles (8 km) north-east from the city and county town of Lincoln.

Dunholme has a post office and village shop, and St Chad's CE Primary School on Ryland Road.

The parish church is dedicated to Saint Chad, and is a Grade I listed building, built in Early English style.[1] It contains a kneeling effigy to Robert Grantham (died 1616), and was restored in 1856 and 1892.[2]

RAF Dunholme Lodge airfield was used by RAF Bomber Command during the Second World War. It closed in 1964 and little remains; some of the site is now the William Farr School.
