Willoughton Preceptory was a holding of the Knights Templar in Lincolnshire, England. The preceptory stood at the farm still called Temple Garth.

Willoughton, founded during the reign of Stephen, was the richest of the English houses of the Templars. After the suppression of the order in 1312 the house passed to the Hospitallers in 1338. It was dissolved in 1540, the lands passing to King's College, Cambridge.
