Quethiock (meaning foresty place) is a village and civil parish in Cornwall, England, roughly five miles east of Liskeard. According to the 2001 census the parish had a population of 429. The ancient parish church of St Hugh is one of the most notable in Cornwall. The placename derives from the Old Cornish cuidoc meaning wooded place. In 1871 the population was 661 and the area 4,351 acres (17.61 km2).

Quethiock was formerly part of the Pentillie Estate and owned by Squire Coryton most of the properties passed into owner occupation after a forced sale to meet Estate Duty in the early 1920s.

Quethiock's economy is centred principally around nearby Liskeard and Plymouth. The vast majority of the village's population is either retired or in full-time work. It is estimated that 0.29% of the population is employed in the postal sector.

Quethiock was part of the East Hundred of Cornwall and in St. Germans Rural District between 1894 and 1974.
