Stourmouth is a civil parish in the Dover local government district of Kent, England.

Its name comes from the fact that, before the Wantsum Channel was cut off from the sea, the village was at the mouth of the River Stour.

The parish contains two settlements, East and West Stourmouth. West Stourmouth is the site of the church which originated in Saxon times, but other than the imposing vicarage West Stourmouth consists of just a few scattered farms.

East Stourmouth is the main population centre, stretched out along the B2048 road that bridges the River Stour at Plucks Gutter a mile to the north.
