Warehorne is a village and civil parish in the Ashford District of Kent, England. It is a scattered community situated on the Hamstreet to Tenterden road (B2067) around seven miles southwest of Ashford in Kent, England. The Royal Military Canal passes through the parish.

The settlement is in four main parts. The main part of Warehorne is located near the village green. The grade I listed St Matthew's Church and The Woolpack Inn are linked by a tunnel built by smugglers. A second part of the village is known as the Leacon. This is sited at the crossroads on the B2067 and contains the former schoolhouse and now abandoned cricket field. The remainder of Warehorne contains the World's Wonder pub and borders on the village of Kenardington.

Finally, part of the larger village of Hamstreet falls within Warehorne's parish boundaries, enabling the village to have sufficient population to retain its own parish council. The Saxon Shore Way links Warehorne with Hamstreet where the nearest shops and railway station can be found.
