Ash-next-Sandwich is a village and civil parish since 1974 in the Dover district of east Kent about three miles west of Sandwich.

The civil parish has a population of 2,767 [no date given], and includes the villages of Ash, Westmarsh, Ware and Hoaden. The Ash Level, by the River Stour, takes up the northern part of the parish.

Ash was once part of the Royal manor of Wingham and having been given to the See of Canterbury in 850 AD by King Athelstan, it became a separate parish in 1282, one of the largest in Kent.

Ash is known for its market gardens and was part of the Kent coal mining area.
