Cholsey is a village and large civil parish two miles (3 km) south of Wallingford, in the South Oxfordshire District. In 1974 it was transferred from Berkshire to the county of Oxfordshire, and from Wallingford Rural District to the district of South Oxfordshire.

Cholsey's parish boundaries, some 17 miles (27 km) long, reach from the edge of Wallingford into the Berkshire Downs. The village green is known as The Forty and has a substantial and ancient walnut tree. Winterbrook, at the north end of the parish, adjoins Wallingford and fell under the control of Wallingford Town Council in 2015, despite stenuous resistance from its residents. It is the site of Winterbrook Bridge, which carries a by-pass road across the Thames and was the home of late authoress Dame Agatha Christie.
