Caer Mote is a small hill in the north of the English Lake District near Bothel, Cumbria. Its summit at 920 feet (280 m) lies just outside the boundary of the Lake District National Park. It offers a view of Bassenthwaite Lake from its summit, upon which is an ancient earthwork enclosure of undetermined age, known as "The Battery". Under the name Caermote Hill it is the subject of a chapter of Wainwright's book The Outlying Fells of Lakeland. Wainwright's route is an ascent from Bothel via the northern summit St. John's Hill at 935 feet (285 m) in an anticlockwise circuit.

There are traces of a 1st-century AD Roman fort to the east of the summit.
