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.[1] The parish had a population in mid-2010 of 343,[2] increasing to 412 at the 2011 Census.[3]

Most of the population of the village is centred in the housing estate called Cherrybrook Close, but the village extends up two roads. One road leads to Westhope Common.

The 15th-century Hampton Court castle lies east of the village. It was the ancestral home of the Earl Coningsby. [4]

Dinmore Manor, in a valley south west of the hill, was founded as a preceptory of the Knights of St John of Jerusalem.[5] It is the private residence of mobile phone tycoon Martin Dawes and no longer open to the general public.[6]

Winsley House, in the west of the parish, is a Grade II listed 14th-century farmhouse with later additions.[7]
