Martin Hussingtree is a small village situated between Droitwich Spa and Worcester in the county of Worcestershire, England. It is north of another village called Fernhill Heath. It is situated on a junction of the A38 and A4538. A public house called The Swan is located just north of the junction.

The village is within the area of the Hindlip, Martin Hussingtree and Salwarpe parish council.

The churchyard contains the grave of Thomas Tomkins, a composer of sacred music in the time of Queen Elizabeth I and King James I. He was a relative by marriage of the Folliott family, who were Lords of the Manor of Martin Hussingtree for generations. His work "Galliard-the Lady Folliott's" was written in honour of his daughter in law, Isabella Folliott.
