Duckhole is a small village within view of Oldbury Nuclear Power Station in South Gloucestershire, England. It has a population of less than fifty, it was first settled in the 1780s after Lord Duck von Holis purchased the land from Dinkhole.

The name is not eponymous, as there are many holes but few ducks.
