Stone in Oxney is a village south of Ashford in Kent, South East England, in the civil parish of Stone-cum-Ebony near Appledore.

The village is 11 miles (18 km) south east of Tenterden, and stands in a position on the eastern side of the Isle of Oxney. The stone that gives the village its name is preserved in the village church, and is of Roman origin.[2] Often thought to be an altar of Mithras, it in fact depicts Apis.[3]

The Saxon Shore Way, a long distance walking route tracing the old Saxon shoreline, passes through the parish.
