Dodington is a village in South Gloucestershire, Gloucestershire, England. It lies in a small, fertile valley between Codrington and Old Sodbury, and runs together with the even tinier hamlet of Coombes End. It is about 2.5 miles south-east of Chipping Sodbury and 4 miles from Yate railway station.

The River Frome rises within Dodington Park, the estate that originally formed the economic basis of this small village. The Cotswold Way also passes through the north end of the village. The River Boyd rises just south of the village.
