Harmer Hill is a village in Shropshire, England located on the A528 south of Wem and north of Shrewsbury.

The name Harmer comes from the two words "hare" and "mere", as there was a lake situated in a plain below the hill, but it was drained in the 15th century for farm land. The village is home to two pubs, The Bridgewater Arms and the Red Castle. There is a village hall and Presbyterian chapel with its own burial ground. Harmer Hill has many apparent Ghosts, including the "White Lady".

Queen Mary's brother, the Marquess of Cambridge, lived at nearby Shotton Hall from after World War I until his death in 1927.
