Sellindge is a civil parish and village on the A20 road between Ashford and Folkestone in Kent, South East England. Sellindge is part of North Downs West Ward of Folkestone and Hythe District Council but part of the Elham ward of Kent County Council.

The village played host to the annual Sellindge Music Festival however this was stopped due to difficulties with the ticket sales. The village also hosts the Sellindge Steam Fair every year, with displays including traction engines, steam, diesel and electric locomotive units, buses and lorries.

The static inverter plant of HVDC Cross-Channel lies south of the motorway on Church Lane. Plans exist for a 3,000 capacity lorry park and an anaerobic digestion plant.[1] They are also planning to build a new town called Otterpool, many of the residents do not want this to happen.
