Pen Hill forms part of the Mendip Hillsmarker plateau in Somersetmarker, Englandmarker. The hill is located in St Cuthbert Outmarker civil parish in Mendip district.

The name Pen is believed to be Celtic for hill or tor.

The summit is 305 metres (1,001 ft) above sea level and is marked by an Ordnance Surveymarker trig point. Pen Hill is home to the Mendip TV Mastmarker which is 281 metres (922 ft) high. On the ground Pen Hill provides spectacular views in all directions, particularly to the South, with excellent views down to the City of Wellsmarker and Wells Cathedralmarker. On clear day it is often possible to see across Somerset to the Blackdown Hillsmarker, Quantock Hillsmarker and Brendon Hillsmarker.

There are ancient remains on the hill, in the form of a neolithic Long barrow which has been listed as Scheduled Ancient Monument, and a post medieval pillow mound thought to have been built specifically for rabbit breeding..
