Knockholt is a village and civil parish in the Sevenoaks District of Kent, England. It is located 5 mi (8 km) north west of Sevenoaks & 5.7 mi (9.2 km) south of Orpington, adjacent to the Kent border with Greater London.
The village is mostly a ribbon development, surrounded by fields that are a part of the Green Belt. There is mixed arable farming. It is in a hilly, rural location, on the top of the dip slope of the North Downs, and has views over London. The village name, originally Nockholt, is one of many villages in England with a derivation from oak trees, most a strong departure from today’s spelling of oak such as Aike.
