Summerhouse Hill is a chalk hill near Folkestone in Kent. It forms part of the North Downs and reaches a height of 148 metres above sea level. The hill has a distinctive conical shape and lies detached from the main escarpment of the Downs. The hill's name derives from a gazebo which was built on the summit of the hill by the Drake-Brockman family who used to own the land. However, the gazebo was burnt to the ground by a prankster on Guy Fawkes night in 1935, and the land has passed into the ownership of the Ministry of Defence who use it for army training.
