HMP Huntercombe is a Category C men's prison, located near Nuffield in Oxfordshire, England. Huntercombe is operated by Her Majesty's Prison Service. It holds a solely foreign national population in order to support government priorities on the deportation of foreign national offenders.

The prison opened in 1946. The site was originally built as an internment camp during the second world war, when for a short period it held Rudolf Hess, on his way south after he famously parachuted into Scotland. Since then, extensive redevelopment has taken place and there is little left of the wartime buildings.
